Treasury Kick Back at Greenpeace G.O. O.G.

gTeam Osborne are kicking back at this morning’s Greenpeace fracking stunt. Occupying his constituency office seems to have backfired somewhat; a Treasury source tells Guido: “we are happy for Greenpeace to draw attention to the fact that George is fighting for cheaper energy bills for all”. Something of an own goal…

        These Greenpeace fools are making our energy bills too expensive and are losing any support they once had. If you see a Greenpeace idiot please smack them hard with a cold dead fish.

          Lord Stansted says:

          I wouldn’t call them fools. They are arrogant bastards who deserve to suffer slow and painful deaths. I am sick of these know-all people telling me how I should live my life. I’m passed allowing them space and wish them nothing but the worst. I’m sorry to be extreme but they have driven me to it.

            It would seem that Italy have a real life Guido Fawkes!

            In the MSM there is no mention of Grillo being an accountant prior to becoming a comedian and subsequent political reformer.

            Or the fact he was a whistleblower for the corruption scandal at Parmalat:


            Seems the press have gone into overdrive of personal attacks on the whole Five Star Movement …

            Political contagion not financial contagion is the worry. Not just the EU, but across the West, case after case of scandal in our party political systems (from expenses to perjury and pa3d.op.hilia) .

            That’s before we even get into the far too cosy special interest groups.

        It’s massive in built cost all transferred to the end users of course, making energy eye wateringly expensive. Let’s hope they are too stupid to ever cotton on.

      Tay King-dePisse says:

      Well, if you have to pay more for something you’ll use less of it if you haven’t any more dosh to pay for it (and believe me, these people don’t want you to have any more money than you already do, if you are not on benefits that is). Seems like this is one basic tenet of economics they seem to have down “cold,” if you will. Use less fuel for heating, and you will save the planet from global warming, which will raise the temperature of the planet to where you will need less fuel for heating. This is one basic flaw in their argument which will require a bit more working on.

    GF + associates, you’ve got the wrong link for the Gordon story.

    He was totally Owened on his complaint.

    “Indeed, the fact that Mr Brown had declared these payments on the register of members’ financial interests demonstrated that he, as an individual, could not be divorced from the payments and his office to the extent the complainant appeared to consider appropriate.”

    His claim that they weren’t to do with him is like a defendant in a traffic case claiming they were not part of the accident.

    “Then I put it to you Mr Brown, if you were uninvolved as you claim, and just a witness to proceedings, why did you feel it necessary to give your insurance details to the other party and a statement to the road traffic police?”

    “Erm…erm…tractor production has risen for the ..erm..oh.Bugger!”

      I mean I’m not in favour of increasing energy prices, but people seem to be against green alternatives from the get go, it is because of this ingrained attitude that the thought of straying from the status quo seems so ridiculous.

      The trouble is that there is no BloJo in this government to outrageously promote simple common sense policies with the buffoonery and celebrities that it takes to get onto the front page of the Sun…

      Perhaps the Coalition should hire Max Clifford to promote its policies

      And offer him an amnesty to make it easier for him to accept

        Well they estimate that the UK has only extracted 20% of the coal reserves, the trouble is you cannot just say tomorrow I am going to extract coal deep mining requires the sinking of shafts, installation of underground conveyors rail track it takes years for one pit, plus all the signalling equipement and then the training of men/women, management, GAS was the big fuel Maggie thought it would go on for ever.

    My assistant Mr Balls

    Tells me that fracking is the right thing to do

    It booms and then explodes

    Like he and I did with the British economy

    • 42
      Anonymous says:

      Originally it was an “end to boom and bust”. Notice the “and”.

      Then it morphed into the idea of a never ending boom as being wonderful.

      Now some think the word “boom” is a positive scenario.

      Boom has never been a good thing. A bomb goes boom. It does not explode afterwards. The boom is the explosion.

      Any uncontrolled positive feedback of anything is never good. The origin is in the use of a boom, being a spar, that moves rapidly across the deck of a ship and the associated noise made by the sail. It occurs at the most dangerous time in sailing. The boom (spar) and the boom (noise) were therefore related.

      • 51
        Economist says:

        In fact the Imbecile launched the Boom and Bust on the back of a Ponzi Scheme

        That is why it will take YEARS to repair the damage with limited resourses

        While other countries steam ahead especially in Asia

        The windmill fraud was built into the Climate Change Act, so that some corporate organisations could make billions in subsidy and direct government pork payments. As frauds go, the green one is by far the biggest, ever.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
