WATCH: Cookie Monster v Maitlis

Cookie Monster gave nothing away in what really could not be described as the toughest of interviews.  President Karzai was obviously less media savvy…

      FFS! The BBC’s so called “flagship news programme” Newsnight interviews a puppet! How demeaning and sad can it get. Just take it off air & put it out of its misery. Oh and sack the whole production and presenting team, especially (‘Top’)Katz. Boom Boom!

          It is not left wing to point out that the so-called “free market” has completely failed in it’s task of distributing cookies to people in a way that is fair and equitable.

          The 1% get all the jammy dodgers whereas the 99% of the population that actually create the wealth of this country (rather than being corporate predators) have to make do with dry crackers.

          The solution is to have a central government department (the ministry of cookies) tasked with assessing the cookie needs throughout the country and dividing up the national cookie jar in a way that all shall get the cookies they need.

          Obviously this must be done in a way that is fair and ensures equality – and this will require a very large government department with a large budget – similar to the budget for MoD for example.

          Furthermore it will require a MInister who has a real talent and understanding of cookies to run the show. Obviously, such a future Minister for Cookies will have to sample a great deal of cookies in order to determine how best to distribute the remaining cookies in a way that is fair and ensures equality but that’s just a burden I – er sorry “the minister” – will have to shoulder.

          Thank you.

          Vote Cookie Monster.

        Probably for real.

        The EU has set carbon targets for the UK and power companies have been decommissioning coal fired plants to meet these targets. Phase 3 of the carbon reductions starts in 2013…
        http://www.carbontrust.com/resources/reports/advice/eu-ets-the-european-emissions-trading-scheme

        New generating capacity has been delayed because no politician wanted to have a nuclear plant in their constituency, many of the green options don’t provide the base load generation profiles of the coal fired stations and the gas prices were uncertain when plants needed to be built.

        None of this is new – it was being discussed in the media from at least 2000 onwards….

        New capacity will come on-line from 2016 but from Winter 2013 until Winter 2015, the UK will be running very close to the supply limits.

        None of this changed due to Ed’s speech… None of this changed due to the Tories. The last Labour government could have made changes, but it probably wasn’t Brown’s fault either…

    I understand that there has been a scandal at the CTN concerning Elmo, Cookie Monster and some of the kids appearing on the show.

    Considering he had to leave the USA anyway, Cookie Monster thought the BBC and Newsnight in particular could offer him some protection from the forces of law and order, just like they did me.

    if you put a seed in the ground and leave it alone, after a bit you’ve got a tree. if you dig up some mud and some sand , mix it together and set fire to it you have got a brick. Just how hard can it be ?
    People complain that there is a lack of houses which is why they have increased so much in value but has the cost of making a brick or making some wood increased so much ? perhaps house builders are linking the cost of their new-build houses with the cost of ones people are already sat in ?
    If the cost of materials really has increased so much would it not be more practical to subsidize the cost of materials for builders on provision they do not sell houses for silly prices.

        I am just pointing out that the cost of finance is the burden. If you have the capital to buy a hundred acres for 200,000 pounds and plant it with trees for wood for building, the 200,000 pounds is still there in the value of the land, then after several years you have the value of the trees for building. If government wants to assist I would have thought putting money in at that end would be better than insuring money lenders.
