      But it’s a bit daft to say the least to now oppose a successful policy that you previously supported and helped enable.

        Since when has consistency been a LibDem core value?


        • 169
          From Sandals to FlipFlops says:

          True. All the time the LibDems were in opposition they demanded an EU referendum and promised to hold one if elected to power. As soon as they got into power they demanded Not to have an EU referendum.

      Joe Public. says:

      Cruel, but very true and something we can all relate to especially after the beebs Toady Programme this morning when we had Davey et al all speak from the same political songsheet of condemning their partners in government, and then exhaustively condemn all that they previously supported, stating that previously they were ONLY supporting “government policies”.
      Hypocrites and back stabbers come to mind.
      Could be an interesting election for them

    Village Idiot says:

    …”Busted Flush” comes to mind!
    ……On a different matter,”How many coal and gas power stations could we get for the price of one nuclear power station!


    • 4
      Village Idiot says:



      • 18

        You’re missing the point. That nice Mr. Davey is interested only in increasing the price of all power generation means until windmills become economically viable. Thus fracked gas is being so wrapped up in regulation that it becomes incredibly expensive, coal generation is being strangled to death so that it is cheaper to clear-cut South Carolina and ship the processed wood over to the UK, and successive governments have so bolliixed the replacement of nuclear that the Coalition is being robbed blind by foreign interests. All in the name of reducing the production of a trace gas whose only measurable effect has been to increase global plant growth by 8% in the last 30 years.


      • 39
        Village Idiot says:

        …The real answer to energy,is tidal! But,it is so obvious,so green,so guaranteed and so productive that the educated elites will not touch it with a lightening conductor! I believe that nature would eventually adapt to it and it could be done in a “wildlife friendly” manner!
        Given the HS2 money and other investment,this ,along with all the new degree engineers,would be a good thing! (of course,i know zilch about the practicality.)


        • 49
          Sir William Waid says:

          Ah, but it would slow down the rotation of the Earth. Think of that!

          It would also be an ecological disaster for our estuaries, so it would not be very green at all.


          • There was some experimentation going on a few years ago with wave generation. where power was generated by bobbing up and down on the waves. Ideal for the Bristol channel I’d have thought, and kind to the fish as well..


          • Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Ecoloons says:

            If only we could harness all the energy from a firm pair of tits bobbing up and down when a young girl is running for the bus :-)


          • Burgers are bad for you says:

            You have hit it in one Sir W. But just in case you had not noticed, all these idiot propellers springing up all over the place are there just to counter the slowdown and maintain the earth’s speed.


        • 56

          It’s the Greens who have led the protests against tidal. The Greens want a medieval technology with a tenth of the global population. In practice this means billions of poor, brown-skinned people being sacrificed. Strangely, no prominent Green has offered to set an example by volunteering for euthanasia. The Green movement isn’t only genocidal, it’s racist as well.


        • 74
          Get on and Build the Severn Barrage says:

          Wild Life adapts, it always has and always will. Build a Severn Barrage and all sorts of unexpected benefits to wildlife will happen. Most of our national parks are not so called natural landscapes but are the result of previous and current land management, the rugged coastal Landscape of Cornwall is the result of Nature reclaiming mine sites.

          It’s ironic that the icons of Green energy are Landscape destroying, bird mincing, sinister hum producing giant windmills.

          It’s politics, dude.

          If you’re a rich out of touch Eton arse bandit who is destroying the country through a failure to control immigration and people smuggling, you had better be sure that anything you say in public does not make you sound like an even bigger tosser.

          Rich people telling poor people not to heat their homes but to wear a jumper is profoundly stupid politically.

          It is almost as stupid as failing to control immigration.


  9. 16

    Crafty one this, so pay attention:

    * Make sure all policies we support are both manifestly illiberal and impinge in a highly undemocratic manner upon the people.

    * That way we can use our party name to confuse people that our policies are both liberal and democratic.

    We can rely on the fact that the BBC will have dumbed everyone down so much that they won’t be able to tell the difference.

        Lord Stansted says:

        I picked up two other examples of BBC bias (it was a slow morning). (1) The guys who opened fired at a Coptic wedding killing a child were called Islamic militants and not terrorists. (2) An Oxford professor let it out of the bag that the strike price for the new nuclear power station is much less than it is given for off-shore wind generators; the interviewer quickly moved on and this was not mentioned in a later summary.


      • 125
        Anonymous says:

        Sarah Montague and Evan Davis were both dreadful this morning.One man (Lord something) told Sarah “this is typical of the today programme” as she didnt let him answer etc.Evan actually spoke for 80% of that interview with Alan Greenspan, which says it all !

          Scrapp the BBC says:

          Yes I heard that – she was trying to say that a policy that had only been going for 6 months was a “failure”.


        • 184
          Big Momma says:

          The Lord McKie?? also said he did not recognize Sarah’s figures and she replied they came from the Guardian.
          She did her best to drown out his ironic (sarcastic?) statement that “if it came from the Guardian then it must be true”
          Evan Davies is a poor man’s economist and has never had a decision deciding job in his life, yet browbeat an old and disillusioned Greenspan. Some years ago Evan Davies was praying at Greenspan’s alter.
          Will he try the same Stasi interview technique on Bernanke?
          He should, but will not have the bottle for it.

    I’ve recently had some unplanned leave and I’m dreading going back

    Dear Holly,

    I’ve recently had to take some unplanned leave from work, but now I have to go back and I’ve realised I’m dreading it. I’ve become quite fond of my new routine where I rise at 2pm to spend the afternoon watching Food Network in my dressing gown. Things tick by nicely when you’re not in the rat race. How can I get out of work altogether?

    Barack Obama

    Washington D.C.

    Dear Barack,

    Everyone in my class is desperate for the teachers’ strike to go ahead so we all get some free holidays too. But I don’t think teachers are as hard done by as they make out. If they’re not in the staff room drinking coffee, they are sitting at the front of the class watching us kids do all the work. They’re always standing about asking endless, pointless questions, which suggests to me that they’re under-qualified. Some of them are unbelievably dense, for example in maths Mrs Parsley was asking us all about train arrival and departure times and we were all thinking, for God’s sake just get the British Rail App and stop bothering us. If that woman would just invest in a calculator we could all get on with something more constructive.

    Hope that helps!
