Miliband's an arsehole: part the millionth...

As regular readers of The Kitchen may know, I have long held David Miliband in the highest contempt, but now I am beginning actively to hate the four-eyed cunt.
But the submission sent earlier this month from David Miliband, the Environment Secretary, and leaked to the Mail on Sunday, is likely to have surprised even such a committed high-tax Chancellor as Mr Brown.

Fucking hell, they must be bad.
Mr Miliband, who last month admitted he had been "scared" by the scientific evidence on the impact of global warming, is proposing an eye-watering menu of hard-hitting green taxes.

Mr Miliband is, unfortunately, not a scientist and so would be utterly unable to assess whether any of the doom-mongering was, in any way, likely to happen; he is also totally unqualified to determine whether the research is valid or reliable. No doubt he would also have been "scared" by the dire warnings about global cooling in the 70s—when scientists were "almost unanimous" that "the cooling will cause world famine, world chaos, and probably world war, and this could all come by the year 2000"—and they seem to have turned out to be bollocks. And, indeed, there are serious doubts as to what extent the so-called greenhouse gases are, in fact, having an effect on any warming.

Further, I would question David's fitness to pronounce on anything, since he has happily admitted that he knows nothing about the progress made with wave power generation. Not only did he know nothing about it, but he was also unaware that there has been a wave generator connected to the National Grid for the last six years. [Emphasis mine.]
When I was in Devon before the summer I was asked by an enterprising BBC coorespondent about a proposed 'Wave Hub' project for Cornwall. The idea is to provide a real life test for wave power. I am afraid I was stumped and had to plead ignorance.

No, David, you fuckwit; we have had a "real life test for wavepower" about seven years ago; it worked, so it was attached to the Grid in 2000. You are making energy policy and you were unaware of this? And you are now proposing a raft of taxes based on flawed and incomplete data? I consider that to be positively criminal, David.
He calls on the Chancellor to come forward with proposals in his pre-Budget report, expected about the end of next month, that can start to be introduced in the March Budget.

Right, so we still have an argument about the extent to which greenhouse gases make a difference.

We have a minister who is not only non-conversant with much of the science but is also ignorant of some very important areas under his competency.

And this minister thinks that he can propose a solution whilst (presumably) knowing that he has incomplete data. I consider this to be extraordinarily unwise.
Hardly any area of family life would be exempt from the new eco-taxes that Mr Miliband wants introduced in an attempt to force people to change their behaviour to reduce their use of energy.

Oh, no, panic over: it's just NuLabour attempting to force us to live our lives by their standards. I might have known. But believe me, Miliband has moved up to Public Enemy #1, because he is an arrogant, ignorant cunt of the very first water.

And now, why not hop over to Timmy's place and let Master Worstall show you the economic mistakes that Miliband is making?

David Miliband makes me really fucking radge, I can tell you; I want to push his smug face in...

But, instead, I'm going to recommend some useful reading:

Reckon it'll make any difference? Nah, David's "scared", remember?

Totally agree with the sentiments, and the fact that pseudo-science is, once again, being used as a control-the-masses-raise-taxes strategy. BUT.........if the language you use were a tad less "colourful" your argument would probably have more impact. Not really a criticism just an observation.

Why doesn't Miliband fuck off back to Bilderberg and tell them that, because of the free internet, their global carbon tax and trading scam has been exposed as being based on 'evidence' which is about as convincing as the case for WMD in Iraq. Long live the internet. Do not accept Internet 2!
