      rebekah aka nellnewman says:

      militwit gave us wind turbines during his spell as Environment Minister in the last labour government.

      they have caught fire in high winds, fallen over in high winds and generally not produced much electricity. More importantly, thanks to dearest militwit, they will cost those of us who pay energy bill, over the next 10 years or so, £17billion.

      Lord knows what the idiot would do if he ever got into no10! Let’s hope he never gets the chance.

          Universal Hiss says:

          Yes that is good.

          The wind turbines around me have been static for weeks. Loads of snow & no wind for 3 weeks.Now loads of rain & gales.Constant wind speed of 40mph gusting to 85mph.

          I’d be asking for my money back if I had one. Oh,wait a minute I’d get paid shed loads of dosh even if they produced nil,zitch,nada.

          This must be one of the best thefts from the public purse ever.

        old SHEP says:

        It’s the mantra nell, the fact that they are virtually useless at generating any significant power doesn’t matter, we are going to have to freeze because of sky rocketing electricity costs that we can’t afford because of these vanity projects so that some prick can stand up and say look how environmentally friendly I am , what a good boy am I.


        • 109
          rebekah aka nellnewman says:

          We are not however north k o r e a n s programmed to suffer in silence as we freeze to death – militwit may expect us to lay our disgust at his utter incompetence directly at his front door.


          • WoRaft says:

            Trouble is, pols have a deep attachment to the days of the energy crisis. It’s a form of political anorexia; the desire to control consumption beyond all sensible limits will kill them eventually but they so love the feeling of control that they get all moist about the 3-day week, rationing during the war etc.

        Biggest pi$$ take involving wind turbine says:

        Switched off near Wakefield jail as disturbing prisoners:


        WTF ?


        • 120
          Close, but no cigar says:

          It was Whitemoor nick:

          SOFT ON CRIME
          Prison inmates forced the shut-down of a £1million wind turbine because it casts a shadow over their library. Lags at top-security Whitemoor jail in Cambridgeshire, which holds killer Kenneth Noye, whinged about the flickering shade when the sun is low in the mornings. Longhill Energy switched off the electricity turbine, which supplies 4,000 homes, for fear prisoners will riot. Boss Martin Alder said, “We don’t want to upset prisoners.” No, that would never do.


          • Wind Power Truth says:

            “wich supplies 4,000 homes”

            Just how gullible do some people have to be?

            Wind farms typically operate at around 20% of capacity, so that’s reduced down by reality to 800 homes. Except for one rather large fly in the ointment.

            The DECC calculate a ‘home’ as 4 lightbulbs, yes, that’s right, 4 lightbulbs. So those ‘800’ homes are further reduced again by reality, to around 150 homes.

            Then of course if it’s too windy or there is insufficient wind, the number of real homes powered by a wind turbine is zero.

    At 10:30 tonight – ‘Dispatches’ CH4 – is covering a hot topic – of religious men who appear to be shielding their own from charges of child abuse.

    The issue crosses over both Sharia and Beth D..in [why can’t I write about it the din with the moody ones getting all huffy] boys running their own courts -WITHIN OUR JURISDICTION.

    I have been reading up on this subject in the JC for weeks – why the silence until now by the MSM?

    I want English Law – and none of this ghettoisation within this land.

    Matthew Norman – tore into the An-Semi subject matter in todays Indy – he also tore into Melanoma flip-lips & Murdoch – both of them disgusting and vile twisters of the truth and actualite.

      Slowly but surely their behaviour is being exposed and understood. It’s is all about behaviours. At root, we are all animals goverened by our behaviours. Animals/people behave the way they do because of the way they are.

      Google Jaded Jean, tabblenabble01/02, statist and brown-dog on the bbc websites to understand the epidemiology behind it. Whoever they are/were…he/she is a genius. I do not state this lightly.

    After seeing the dross on the supposedly news today,where would one start.
    PMQ’s what a load of numpties from all parties,who frankly can’t put an intelligent question together,the questions ranged from the inane to the insane.
    Are this current crop of no marks of all the parties worth their salt in promoting the wishes of the electorate,no they are not,barring a few I would say we the people are being badly served by this bunch of troughers in it only for the shekels.

    Child care another bannana skin,dreamt up by these so called politicians,let me put things in perspective here.
    We pay £40 million pounds into the eussr each day,we also pay in to the international aid fund £19.1 billion pounds for mainly african despots.

      • 142
        A fair and reasonable suggestion says:

        Perhaps a fair solution would be to weight votes according to how much tax one contributes to the nation. The votes of a high-rate taxpayer in the private sector would count more than the vote of a Labour-voting chav (or public sector) parasite, for example. Tax-dodging scum – and I’m thinking of Bob Geldof here – would find their votes counting for diddly-squat, too.

        It would be very easy to do, a computer could calculate it in milliseconds.

      Polanski is a criminal and a child abuser who has been ‘protected’ by his own [Never mind the David Ward spat] for decades – if he’s not guilty then why has he not voluntarily gone back to the US?

        Not Blowing Whistles says:

        Watched the dispatches.

        Guess the message is about minority communities not turning to state for help.

        Must say that except for not turning over the accused to the police, or at the very least ensuring that they are placed in a position where they have no contact with kids, everything said about doubts over how the state apparatus would handle I fully agree with.

        Any ideas how the muzzie community handle this ? Or for that matter the Ch!nese ?

        Well: You will not hear much from victims from within their communities, and parts of those accused only turn up every now and then.

        Until family courts are opened again, ie. not by default in camera, and something is done about social services and child protection teams – ie. that they are reliably not conduits for feeding children into brothels and trafficking rings, then it is best not to involve.

        Savile, Baby P and Rotherham UKIP issue are what finally convinced me that these tax funded low lives are more a hazard to society than a benefit.

        The Rabb!’s though should now make sure that they sort their house out. They are actually best placed to determine if wrongdoing has occurred, and it is not clear why they simply do not cast out those they determine guilty from the community and hand the file over to the police for prosecution.

        It was never properly asked why they gave the advice that they do.

        Was made more angry in the presentation with the anti-male bias and the insistence that the state knows best to be perfectly honest. Post Savile those arguments hold zero credibility in the UK.

          • Alastair Campbell Murderer says:

            I think there should be a third category, Malum Cheatingus – no, it wasn’t an abhorrent crime, yes, it was wrong, but also..it was cheating. A bit of a waste of time, really.

            I still think Microsoft have done something with Solitaire. Wins used to be far more frequent. Maybe it’s they who’ve done the Malum prohibitum thingy. Bill Gates’s toenails should be removed, one by one, until he spills the beans.

            How – NOT ODD – that the likes of SC and others go off on ‘other topics’ – other than what is of true interest to the real public. I’d swear that SC and some of his friends are totally politically blinkered – by what is facing them before their very eyes – across the internet …

            The issue of Child abuse – by so many in the political spectrum IS NOT GOING TO GO AWAY. It is going to be dealt with and those who are guilty are going to pay the price for their acts and those who conspire to conceal the matters are equally guilty of having committed the same acts. It’s in The book of (Oh I can’t mention that book in full withpout being Mo….ded]

          • Child abuse is wrong but I cannot watch here the programmes that you do.

            If you are that troubled with the problem, to the exclusion of every other subject, then why are you coming here?

            I have brought up children without them being abused. That is a fundamental part of being a parent.

            To want to talk about other things is not wrong as you suggest. It is normal. But you seem obsessed to the point of signalling concern about yourself.

          She used her boobs to divert attention from her lack of intelligence.

          There are 2 sorts of women (at least from a woman’s point of view) – those who can be elegant, discreet, intelligent and professional and those who are crass and seek attention through crudity.

          There is a third sort of womanhood , far more valuable than either of those two and it is called caring motherhood – but most of us would struggle to achieve it’s high plateau.

      I’m with you here. Women want equality – the destruction of the ‘glass ceiling – and yet they arrive at work with their faces covered in clown paint, dressed-up like a Pantomime Dame, with floral motifs all over their blouses, whining, “Why don’t you take me seriously?”

      And then you find them, 20 minutes’ later – crying quietly in the kitchen because their boyfriend doesn’t understand them and the painters are in and .. blah blah blah.

          I’ve certainly met the wrong type – which is most of them, really. When dealing with woman, I’ve found the three biggest “run” signals to be aware of are “how much do you earn?” and “what star-sign are you?”

          And “Why don’t you take me seriously?” when she’s standing there, in the office, in front of you, wearing a pink floral dress and half a ton of makeup.

            Most important questions to ask a man before you consider whether he ‘s worth asking to marry you:

            are you any good at washing up?

            can you make a bed?

            do you know how to iron ?

            can you hoover?

            do you want children and can you change a nappy?

Fortunately for me, the waiter came back and apologised that they didn’t have any lobster, so the cow sulked for the rest of the evening.

          Wasn’t that fortunate, really, as I didn’t get dessert.

      You don’t need a political bent to keep Toxic Taffy going. I have been writing to Guido encouraging him to do something about the vomiting toad, and received this deeply discouraging reply:

      FYI 50 people care deeply about the comments, two-thirds of readers don’t read ‘em.

      If I wanted to block this guy I could.

      Раul Stаіnes

      Well, I have probably pissed Guido off by writing four emails to him, but his cynicism makes sense economically. Fifty readers who go online five times a day each to attend to the comments generate only half as much revenue from page views as a drooling cretin who presses the F5 key 500 times a day.

        Devils Advocate says:

        @Tachybaptus :
        Agree with your point, but agree with Guido as well.

        The real problem is when things go off the rails and all of the embedded stuff starts cluttering things up.

        Checked last nights last blog which got similarly polluted and noticed that all the inane stuff had been stripped: Allowing all to post is the right thing to do, deleting the obvious chaff after the fact is also right.

        That should demoralize or change the pattern of behavior when the chap realizes that his time really is wasted posting content that is going to be zapped by a script prior to archiving.

        Personally enjoy your posts and insights very much T, irrespective of TT :-)


      • 244

        There is an argument which runs that if G were to moderate the comments any more then he would in fact become responsible for those problematical ones which get through. I am not saying I agree with it (or otherwise) but it has validity as an argument.

        For years now we have had problematic visitors but, in the main, they have come and gone after a great deal of unpleasantness. This is bound to happen on a blog like this. So there is almost a self-correcting aspect to the problem which is not quick but is effective in the long term.

        The blog is fundamentally a business so G has to keep his eye on a number of balls. He appears not to want to rely on people who are not in his employ. If you pay, you can kick. Like you, I would offer help but know that it would not be well received because he is independently minded and focussed upon a different objective to we as posters.

        I am surprised he admits to 50 people caring. I would think it is greater than that frankly but the principle would not alter much.

        The blog would be poorer without those people though. Whether he would agree to that I have no way of knowing.


      • 248
        Tachybaptus says:

        @ Devil’s Advocate: Thanks. I’m quite sympathetic to Guido’s view: this is his business. But it is depressing having to find your way from one sensible comment to another as if jumping on stepping stones over a lake of shit. I do think that blocking embedded YouTube clips would be a good thing; they are seldom relevant and a naked URL will get you there anyway if you want.

        Devils Advocate says:

        @ T : Know exactly what you mean. Have been thinking about writing a plugin which would allow one to paste in the offending monicker and then do a local filter on the page when you load it for wordpress blogs.

        Not 100% sure if it is possible, am starting to research.

        @ SC: If G did moderate he wouldn’t become more liable. The comment is owned by the poster. He could be ordered to take it down, but the way he is set up it is very unlikely at present that action would go anywhere. The mod set up with certain names and references make it clear what his counsel have advised + what his preferences are. All are his guests.

        It’s better to keep it open though, even for the trolls which pass through. I say that only because to censor by blocking would not sit right for me as it would be a denial of freedom to the troll: Not very libertarian :-)

        @WDY: Read your link + the Register on net problems. Not sure it is a Murd0ch plot, could be the company which owns the hardware but is losing customers who is playing around.

        Stirring is fine, but the internet issue is honestly the only interesting and constructive thing you’ve added today, and that did take two posts. Unless correcting yourself, replying to yourself looks a bit odd, and whilst agitation is good it may be wise to get a measure of where the level is on the blog before agitating otherwise people will ignore.

        Z00philia and child references, like those above, don’t really impress anyone and if you check the law you may find that such posts gain the attention of the authorities.

        Check Mark Will!ams-Thomas’ blogs / twitter feed and CPS for further details of how that works. You are the owner of those remarks, which are logged with your IP, and if G doesn’t delete them he or his ISP may be ordered to disclose if found to transgress.


      • 257

        @DA. I agree with the thrust of your argument. But as you will well know: You can ask five different lawyers and you’ll get different opinions. I have commissioned enough opinions myself over Consumer Credit Law in the 1980s, at a not inconsiderable cost, to know this!

        The opinion which I put forward was argued some time ago by a lawyer and I would suggest that it would be a brave one who would say it could not stick under any circumstances which is why I reserved my judgment on the argument, despite acknowledging how G has set this thing up. Mad decisions from the bench do occur from time to time and often, but not always, get overturned upon appeal.

        G will not allow comments that are liable to libel writs being issued and deletes them. Those who use their grey matter here manage to comment quite adequately without causing him any grief. Unfortunately not all people use their grey matter. So it is impossible to have a completely free commentary.

        Outside off that, like you, I think that people who are plainly wrong should be allowed to comment. To a certain extent they damage themselves by doing so, in most instances. I say this because I get a fair amount of trollery, sockpuppets and even hate messages. I have never sought to get them banned. They have the real problem, not me.

        I completely support your remarks to WDY.

      ‘… it is very expensive to try stop them getting to uk , so if you give money we keep them from blowing you up’

      This was exactly what the Romans were doing in the last desperate years of their empire: paying the barbarians to keep them out. After the Visigoths under Alaric invaded Italy in 401 the Romans just managed to stem the tide and put the invading forces on hold with a large bribe. It didn’t work, of course, and after a few years Alaric moved forward again and sacked Rome in 410.

          Tachybaptus says:

          The enemy was with the Romans too: among others, tens of thousands of Goths were serving in the Roman army. Things never happen exactly the same twice, of course: in this case the emperor Honorius accused one of his generals of conspiring with the enemy and then, with unbelievable stupidity, encouraged the Roman population to massacre the families of the Gothic soldiers. The soldiers deserted en masse, of course, and joined Alaric, and that was the end of the empire.


      • 255
        AQ Watch says:

        The parallel with the Alaric is quite relevant today. A lot of the real !slamists in North Africa and elsewhere have been kept at bay with payoffs and bribes from US and others.

        This stopping is one of the reasons why they are mobilizing now: That and the dismantling of the cold war stability pacts which kept those lands ‘peaceful’. (!raq war / Syria / Arab Spring)

        Do not agree that the Alger!an military messed up at all.

        They certainly sent a powerful message though.

        One suspects that the principal message was simply brute deterrent.

        The more subtle message was to let those who may seek to send a trojan of security assistance into the country that such a horse is not needed and moreover the fate that awaits such a horse.
