The Longrider is elegantly incensed and expresses this emotion with all his his customary aplomb.
Having listened to both the leader of the council; Serge Lourie and Sir David Trigg, the Council cabinet member for traffic, transport and parking pontificate about how they have an obligation to “encourage” residents to change their lifestyle choices, I am in no doubt whatsoever that they want others to follow in their tawdry footsteps.
Listen you jumped up fascist fuckwits, you have no obligation to do anything of the sort. You were elected to serve the residents of Richmond, not to socially engineer them into thinking as you do. You do not “encourage” by using financial penalties for forbidden thinking and behaviour – that is blackmail, not encouragement. Get a dictionary, look the words up. It isn’t difficult, you pair of obnoxious, bullying little shits. It is not, absolutely not, your prerogative to use force to dictate people’s buying choices.
Beautiful prose, the man's a genius! The trouble is that the LibDemons are obviously not.
As was illustrated by the Daily Propaganda, via Wat Tyler, the other day, electric cars—the councillors preferred method of transport (although I don't know how many councillors have electric cars themselves)—are not as eco-friendly as the LibDemons suppose them to be.
Because although the EST reckons it's "the most energy efficient car on the road" and better for the planet, it's only that way if you don't count the carbon cost of generating and transmitting the electricity to charge it up. Once you do, it turns out it's more carbon generative than a bog standard Ford Focus 1.6D. Which doesn't qualify for any of the financial breaks.
You see, these people are fucking idiots as well as being lazy cunts: you don't need to have a degree in Physics to understand these costs, for crying out loud, you just have to think!
But the LibDemon councillors are not finished with their pathetic justifications.
"Climate change is the single greatest challenge facing the world today," said council leader Serge Lourie.
If I hear one more cunting fascist bastard trying to justify his shitty crank ideas with that phrase—and, fuck me, but there seem to be an awful lot of them—I am going to break out the clawhammer and rail vouchers and start showing them what I think is the greatest challenge facing the world today, i.e. fascist scum who seem to have forgotten that they work for us.
"We can no longer bury our heads in the sand and pretend that it is not happening, or that dealing with it is up to somebody else.
I'm sorry, Sunny Jim, but have you got some new science to show me? Otherwise I shall refer you to my recent post excoriating that ignorant cunt, Davey "batshit" Miliband. The science is far from conclusive; the economic arguments are far from conclusive; the data is flawed and you guys are talking out of your arses. Fuck off.
"And Richmond upon Thames is one of the highest CO2-emitting boroughs in London.
Really? How do you measure that, precisely? Are you sure that you are getting some bleed-through from Putney or something? What is anything that you say?
Lookee, people; do you think that the LibDemons are going to be less authoritarian than NuLabour? I suggest that you take another look…
