Moonbat repents

(nb. I am still not the Devil's Kitchen)

Last month I posted about recession porn - the bizarre fantasy endorsed by certain newspaper pundits that economic collapse will somehow wash our sins away. One of the biggest culprits is Guardian wingnut George Monbiot who, this time last year, announced:
Bring on the recession

and:
I hope that the recession now being forecast by some economists materialises

Showing all the consistency and reliability of his beloved computer climate models, Moonbat has now had a dramatic change of heart, writing in The Guardian yesterday:
I’m not going to suggest, as some scoundrel who shares a name with me did on these pages last year, that we should welcome a recession.

Quite right George. That scoundrel should be sacked. Thank God no one pays any attention to a word he writes.

If Moonbat could follow this unexpected glimmer of sanity by stating that he no longer believes that flying is "as unacceptable as child abuse" or that the world should be ruled by a single government then there might be some hope for the mad old crank yet.

No. Regardless of whether he repents, there is no hope for Monbiot. He's Polly Toynbee with a cock. If he were truly repentant, he'd hang himself.

Bless poor George. He really takes himself seriously the old chap. Where would we be without insane nutcases like him to chuckle at?

My best guess is that Moonbat isn't quite in the "Polly league" of champagne socialists and has realised that a recession is going to fuck over his twee lifestyle.

The cunt.

Monbiot is a twat of the highest order there is no doubt...

However, I cannot help but think that a financial meltdown of catastrophic proportions is the only way we will get the kind of change that most here crave...

Yes, I know it will hurt, but seriously the shit that happens each and every day here and around the world is just getting worse and worse...

Bankruptsy I believe is the only way we will purge ourselves of this filth once and for all...

Moonbat's real reason for backtracking on his desire for a recession is because Green politics will disappear as a public priority. It's fine in times of prosperity to indulge oneself with this crap; when it starts costing money, lots and lots of money, people will wake up and concentrate on more important priorities.
