Four people who glued themselves to a statue in the Houses of Parliament in protest at government energy policy have been arrested.
Police sealed off the corridor in St Stephen's Hall, near the Commons main entrance, while the protesters, members of the group Climate Rush, were removed.
I found this through Tom Harris's dryly amusing post, in which he coins such gems as...
Why waste glue remover on them? They’ll get hungry or need the toilet soon enough.
And this unelected, unaccountable shower are just the people to give the wake-up call, are they?
So why don’t they stand for election and find out if the people of this country would actually prefer to depend entirely on wind/tidal power (otherwise known as “letting the lights go out in the middle of the next decade”)?
Can't disagree with you, Tom, to be honest. Which irritates me slightly. Although there are signs that Tom Harris has been cultivating a few brain cells and, occasionally, even bothering to use them. Which is nice.
Anyway, who the fuck are Climate Rush? Well, they are not a registered charity, alas, so no fake charity entry for them: however, they do try to explain their motives...
We are all daunted by the science of climate change.
I'm not. Piss off.
As each month passes the threats increase indefinitely.
No they don't.
It is difficult to have a clear idea of how much must be done and...
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Oh! What? I'm writing a blog post. Ahem. Sorry, chaps: nodded off for a second there.
Never mind, let's see which notable tossers are supporting this bunch of wankers, shall we?
- Susan Kramer MP (LibDim, Richmond Park). Susan is so dedicated to fighting the climate change agenda that she has recently visited India and Ethiopia, and she has an interest in "a holiday flat in Southern Spain". I assume that she bicycles to these destinations, since to fly would be to kill Gaia. Susan also spent £127,039 of our money in expenses last year.
- John McDonnell MP (Labour, Hayes & Harlington). John has no registered interests, but contrived to show his faith in the climate cause by spending £3,807 on travel expenses last year (£2,876 worth by car), out of a total of £135,180.
John McDonnell was also the person who, amongst other things, put forward the Early Day Motion commemorating the fortieth anniversary of the entirely fortuitous death of that mass-murdering, child-killing, Communist scumbag, Che Guevara. Which makes John McDonnell a cheerleader for mass-murdering, child-killing, Communist scumbags and, thus, a total cunt.
- The last notable person supporting this bunch of fucking clowns is Dr Caroline Lucas, Green MEP and barkingly insane. Really? Insane? Yes, I think so.
Air travel 'as bad as stabbing person in the street', says MEP
Caroline Lucas, the leader of the Green Party, suggested that travellers who regularly jet off to the Costas are threatening the lives of others - and do as much damage as thugs who stab people in the street.
When asked if flying to Spain was as bad as knifing a person in the street, Ms Lucas said: ‘Yes - because they are dying from climate change.’
You'll excuse me if I opine that Caroline Lucas is a deeply unpleasant woman with all of the charm of a weasel sinking its fangs into your genitalia.
When wibbling on about this climate change crap, Lucas likes to style herself Dr Caroline Lucas—which is fair enough, because she is a doctor. Of English. From Exeter. With a thesis entitled Writing for women: a study of woman as reader in Elizabethan romance.
You'll excuse me if I don't rate her scientific abilities very highly.
With some fucking chutzpah, Climate Rush also list—at the very top of their list of supporters—"You".
You what? I don't support you, you bunch of fucking tossers—why don't you fuck off? It seems, to bring this post to a near(ish)-palindromic close, that neither does Tom Harris MP.
I just think the BBC should be more careful about giving creepy little outfits like Climate Rush such an easy ride.
Strangely enough, of course, your humble Devil would have said something very similar for the last few years. With a few modifications. Well, one.
I just think the BBC should be more careful about giving creepy little outfits like NuLabour such an easy ride.
Did you spot it? Excellent.
In the meantime, I am sure that Labour's Tom Harris will happily take John McDonnell to task over McDonnell's "creepy little outfit"...
