        All three parties are pursuing the same policies on fuel and many other issues. Whilst you might expect rigged markets and crony capitalism under Labour, it is clear now they all agree and see fuel poverty as desirable.
        Thus ‘progressivism’ marches on, whilst under our feet there are trillions of cubic tonnes of easily recoverable cheap fuel, we spend vast amounts of money on the most expensive, least reliable and completely unpredictable form of energy known to mankind, wind power.

          I know it’s easy to do at this dark time of the year but you forgot solar power.

          Cameron has just got rid of the FIT (which is a good or bad thing depending on whether your paying the subsidy or receiving it).

            My huge ANUS (Array Needing Unfiltered Sunshine) will be up and running soon.
            I shall be reflecting pure sunlight onto your miserable little island through this coming winter.
            My fiendishly complicated calculations have confirmed that my ANUS will HALVE your nation’s power bill and put that nasty, foreign cartel and their bloodsucking shareholders on the back foot.
            Do not ever tell me that evil, insane megalomaniacs don’t have a charitable streak in them.

            Oh dear. Tiddles has just shat on the keyboard again.

          I saw a map the other day that seemed to suggest fracking gas was under oxfordshire. I’d like to see them try it out in Witney before they try it out under my foundations.

            The deposits are so vast and it will take years to discover them all, that’s just the onshore deposits.
            Offshore it appears that there could well be, even bigger deposits in the north sea and elsewhere.
            But no we are wasting untold billions on junk technology, junk science and junk watermelon ideology, the waste is more than shameful, it is criminal.

    Oil from the North Sea is taxed many ways, very many ways. When Lord Dyldeaux, (Owner of an oil exploration co.) dreams of finding a couple of wells in a sector he needs a franchise,govt TAX.The taxes multiply all down the line. The final insult to the public, at the pump is VA BLOODY T. A SALES TAX upon tax.
    Plus, the public, and the AA and RAC appear to be blissfully aware that filling stations are allowed to deliver 9 gallons and charge for 10. The legislation dates back to when pumps were very inaccurate and non electric.
    DELIVER 9 AND CHARGE FOR 10. Does anyone know of such ‘slippage’ in any other archaic field of British ignorance and stupidity?

    Chloe Smith is yet another product of the elitist private education system. We hate private schools. Sorry, she what?… She went to a comprehensive?… Um… well, uh… so did I. I went to the roughest comprehensive in the country. No need to try and look it up. It doesn’t exist. I mean, it doesn’t exist anymore. Yes, it was closed down by Thatcher. Must dash now.

      Once the protest about ‘God knows what’ comes to an end, perhaps a few million people should take their place demanding an EU referendum.
      I wonder what the men in frocks think about that? They love their expenses and freebie trips as much as politicians.

    So Mr Dromedary has not declared £27,867 he received as pay from the Unite union in the members’ register of financial interests. But he’s a socialist so that is OK. Do not hold your breath waiting for the BBC to announce it.

    Just watched the most grudging apology on News 24 regarding the shameful biased BBC reporting of the Andrew Tyrie incident at the Tory party conference. Given the original report was shown on BBC’s 10 o’clock news on BBC1, I expect they’ll be repeating the apology on that channel at the same time.

    Perhaps Sky News and ITN should report the BBC’s actions too. It’s time to tell the world what the BBC is really like.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
