Nazi Flag Green Drives Gas Guzzler

Regular readers will remember Pippa Bartolotti, the Green Party leadership candidate who waved the flag of a Syrian fascist organisation that use a swastika as their emblem and base their party anthem on ‘Deutschland, Deutschland über alles’. Now Pippa has admitted to driving a luxurious gas-guzzling Jaguar X-type:

“Yes, it does damage my image within the Green Party – but I’ve got the same problem everybody else has got. Am I suddenly going to pay 25-grand for an electric car which I can’t charge up hardly anywhere, because there’s no infrastructure, and even if I could charge it up, a lot of the energy would be coming from dirty, coal-fired power stations? It might look nice on the face of it, but that would be cosmetic”.

Guido had always assumed that Pippa walked from A to B. Or marched…

    Taking some detail from her own site – http://pippabartolotti.com/post/27920198883/is-it-true-that-you-drive-a-jaguar-if-so-how-do-you

    It’s a ten-year old X-Type (so basically a Ford Mondeo), with an engine under 2 litres in size, with which she does a little over 1000 miles a year.

    Epic non story.

    Not really, the X-type has IRS.
    Aside from that, this sounds like a Green that has woken up to reality.
    Now then, we can we have our green taxes returned to us?

    Does he mean X-Type, or XF? Mrs Lola’s X-Type Diesel Estate does about 44 mpg on a run. That’s hardly gas guzzling.

    As a paid-up member of The Conservative and Unionist Party I walk whenever I can, and use public transport to commute to London (it usually isn’t much good for going anywhere else: on occasion I have found it quicker to run ten miles or so than catch a bus). What is it with these so-called radicals that they can condemn my use of resources while using far more themselves?

    This patient has a hormonal imbalance common in ladies of a certain age.

    They see life in a simplistic, almost child-like dimension and quite often have little or no responsibility, due, in part, to being beneficiaries of their belated husband’s hard earned fortune, or family inheritance.

    I’m afraid there is no cure, but, they can be easily tolerated or ignored.

    How cruel. I drove mine all over Okneys, Shetlands and the Western Isles. Down to Turkey, Gibraltar and to the Black Sea. They thought I was a celebrity in Romania as they had never seen a car like it. Everyone waved at me. One business man, who ran a casino in a main town and who was driving a huge black Mercedes, with an expensive looking girlfriend in the passenger seat, offered to buy it off me. I could not shake him off. Eventually, I said that I might consider it if he gave me his Merc and his girlfriend as part of the deal. He just said OK!

    I still turned him down. The GF would have broken me in at least one way…

But really bicycle and public transport are most appropriate.

    One more thing which supports the discourse that the Greens are more about amassing political power for an alternatively-coloured faction of the marxist cult and that the trees and whales have been relegated to a lower priority.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
