Anthony is creaming his pants at the thought of all the restrictions we "must" put in place in the near future, the devious little cunt.
The climate change bill is currently going through parliament and thankfully it has a wide measure of cross-party support.
What? You mean that all of the politicians want to further restrict the freedom of the individual and thus gain more power for themselves, as well as massaging their egos as saviours of the world?
Well, what a fucking surprise that is; I would never have seen that coming, eh?
Britain will be the first country in the world to set itself legally binding targets for step-by-step reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
Let me rephrase that for you, Giddens: "Britain will be the first country in the world to set itself legally binding targets for reducing freedom, fucking the economy and snooping into people's lives and all in the name of A FUCKING MYTH.
Setting targets, however, is one thing - achieving them will be a truly formidable task, whose implications run through almost all of our institutions.
Well, actually, the EU has set certain targets and Gordon Brown has been advised that even those are nigh on impossible to meet. Our government, with its usual propensity to gold-plate any loony Directive lobbed its way, has done something similar. All that the political elites have done is to set targets that are even more utterly unachievable than the EU's are.
And legally binding on whom, exactly? Are the government going to prosecute themselves if they fail to make those targets? Funny as I'd find that—despite the inevitable massive waste of taxpayers' money—I can't see it happening somehow.
And if you mean that NuLabour is trying to bind successive Parliaments, then that goes against one of the central tenets of our constitution. These people are not fit to run a fucking whelk stall, let alone a country (leaving aside that they should not even be attempting to micromanage an entire country anyway).
And what happens
There will have to be a return to some form of economic planning...
As Timmy says,
You can hear him whimpering with excitement as he wipes the drool off his keyboard after typing that, can’t you?
Because, of course, planned economies have worked so well in the past, haven't they, Anthony? Planned economies are renowned for achieving all of their aims and increasing the sum of human happiness, aren't they just? Fucking hell, Giddens, but you're a cunt.
This man was a Director of the London School of Economics? No wonder it's such a fucking Leftie shithole; no wonder that, with a few honourable exceptions, it churns out stupid arseholes.
... given the timescales involved; technological innovation will be crucial, but so also will lifestyle change. Unless people alter some core aspects of their daily habits, we have no hope of reaching the climate change goals.
This is the point, Giddens, you dangerous little arse: we have no hope of reaching those goals anyway. Now fuck off.
Go fuck yourself and then hang yourself, you hideous excuse for a human being.
