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…

        All of these types are very odd when you scratch the surface, they cant make it with a mainstream party, so they go for the inadequates like greens or Lib dems.

          The mainstream parties are also full of inadequates. If you doubt that, just look at the state of the nation’s finances.

      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?

      lolathebeautiful says:

      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.

      • 30
        Someone in the know says:

        That’s beacause it’s really a Ford Mondeo (Mondeo floor pan) with a Ford Mondeo diesel engine (or perhaps I should say Peugeot DW10/12 diesel engine).

        SP4BS says:

        Some largish diesel estates get well over 60mpg.

        She’s a crap politician too, stating that there are no choices other than this thing and an electric car. Small petrol models would be a senisble compromise if thats what she’s after.

            And one day you (*) will have to buy new batteries, which will cost far more than any of the fuel you might have saved.
            And one can indeed get 70mpg in a large diesel estate if you drive like the nun I mentioned elsewhere.

            (* or some other poor sod)

          • Urea Lifter says:

            yes, but drive one for a week and you want to jump off a bridge.

          • what an exhibition! says:

            They’re always moralizing about using cars. Never mind the mileage you can get with a mid-size diesel – I would have thought (as a representative of the Greens) it was a matter of principles and public example, therefore it should be a Prius – if she must have a car. 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.

    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.

          • Animal says:

            jgm2, I think the person was referring to a particulate filter, which have been around for donkeys years and help to reduce soot out yer back pipe. They’re a bit of emissions trickery, Peugeot started fitting them to their models as standard well over 10 years ago.

          • SP4BS says:

            so the particles that come out of a diesel get called “particulates” by the marketing men. good for them.

          • Animal says:

            Marketing has nothing to do with this.

            ‘Particulate’ is a scientific term, referring to a substance that consists of different particles. Such as soot.

      If one lives in rural places, public transport is non-existant. If you live in a smallish town its crap. If you live in london, theres plenty of it, and even so its still controlled by politicians.

      The greenest car in the world is, bizarrely, a Landrover Discovery. Because the fucking thing is so unreliable that it never actually consumes any fuel.

      • 78

        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…

          If it was a Landrover Discovery then I’m not surprised they’d never seen a c*ar like it. Most of them can’t get down the dr*ive without some catastrophic engine failure.

          • Snaplegs says:

            Land Rovers are by far the greenest cars on the planet. Mines got more recycled parts on it than you can shake a big hairy stick at (including replacement engine jgm2). Need to buy another to feed my recycling habit

            If I had to replace the engine of my car I wouldn’t consider that ‘recycling’. I’d consider it was an unreliable piece of shit in the first place.

          Owners of used Hondas have a 10% chance of their cars suffering a breakdown, according to the survey of 50,000 Warranty Direct policies.


          By contrast, seven in 10 Land Rover owners will experience a breakdown in any given year, the survey said.

          • Snaplegs says:

            probably nearer 9 out of 10 but at least a landy can be fixed without a small mortgage (well older ones like mine anyway, all modern cars require a spotty youth with a degree in computer science to make the thing run)

            Only cars pre 1995 can be considered “green” due to their carbon output over lifetime. Unfortunately some dickhead introduced scrapage scheme and robbed the country of plenty of worthwhile usable cars. Wonder who that was?

          • jgm2 says:

            If I was in the mar*ket for a 4×4 I’d do, as people all over the world who rely on a 4×4 for their life do. I’d buy a Toyota 4×4.

          • Snaplegs says:

            popular misconception – people would buy LR over Toymota if:

            a. They were cheaper
            b. had a better parts network
            c. Were geared for Africa and not Kensington

            Toyotas break down the same as any 4×4 in arduous terrain, they just made better investment in distribution and support in 3rd world states, whereas LR’s previous owners (BL, British Aerospace et al) didn’t

        I can recommend the Ford Ranger as a reliable 4×4. Ignore shit like Navarras which chuck pistons through the engine casing with great reliability.

        The Ford is basic and reliable, and not much wider than a normal car. Guy down my garage says he has never seen one with a serious failure, and this is a rural area where every sod has a 4×4.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
