    I see the BBC used the term “climate change denier” on the news. Is this now official BBC policy to compare people who are in any way sceptical of climate change to people who butchered millions alive?

          We would not dream of using that term but we regularly invite guests who use it and let them get away with it. One such person is Jerry Hayes who is on the paper review on Radio 5 Friday midnight. He regularly calls anyone who questions the EU or climate change, “nutters” and Stephen Nolan never challenges him.

            Yes, I remember Jerry, back in the days of the James Whale show. Not the most credible of people is he? If he calls you a nutter, you know you must be doing something right.

            And bend the judicial system with the collaboration of the pimp City solicitors…(the Rule of Law has been broken in the UK since Blair knobbled the system with his shyster lawyer friends)

            And bend the whole political system to get tax breaks and other favours which pass in the small print of legislation (“non dom” etc)

            Most of these oligarchs (expecially but not only Russian) are criminals who have escaped from their own countries after pillaging them

          • I would suggest the opposite is true and that Podiceps is right.

            These who have made it in some way, do not have the inferiority complex that others who have not. Sometimes that will play out badly, for sure.

            But more often than not, such people can afford to play matters altruistically as they no longer have any particular axe to grind.

            Those who used to go to the House of Lords did not go because of the daily expense allowance. There was no such thing. Indeed, had they been offered it, they would in the main have turned it down.

            I am not trying to present a case that they would have necessarily been the very best brains you could find but their was no cause to doubt them on motive.

            Modernisers often make things worse than better because they, almost by definition, have no historical perspective.

    The complete failure to apply Hayek has made the damage caused by Labour much worst.

    Is Yvette Cooper anything to do with the Mysterons?

    “The Mysterons themselves are never seen on screen. They broadcast their threats by radio, often disguising their intentions with word play- such as stating that they will ‘Kill Time’ when they intend to kill a major Spanish official whose surname is ‘Tiempo’ (Spanish for ‘Time’)-, and are represented visually only by twin rings of green light, suggestive of eyes, that they project onto scenes of murder and destruction of their making from which likenesses emerge. The Mysteron likenesses created are impervious to X-Rays- showing up on X-Rays as though they were conventional photographs- and can only be destroyed by massive amounts of electricity. The recreation process they use only requires the subject to be clinically dead before the copy is created, with Spectrum once setting a trap by utilizing a major that the Mysterons had attempted to kill who had been resuscitated in hospital after he had been recreated.”

I never bought that latter line myself and the courts have seemed to steer away from it too although the situation looked very dodgy for a while.

        The telephone lines most people use for their internet only dissipate about 1W each. So to power those lines even if every household on the planet had internet would require just one power station.

        What they are saying is that cloud computing requires a lot of power. But then so does using a laptop – about 50W each. So work that up across billions of people and it soon adds up, but cloud computing probably uses the equivalent of 3 power stations rather than 30 and as a percentage of global energy consumption is miniscule.

        Since it allows me to work from home and not use any petrol commuting, I would say it probably has its advantages.

          You can’t stop Labour now. Gordon Brown gave thousands of £ to people in the bottom half of society via tax credits.

          If you work it out you will find people doing a part time job in Starfucks with three kids are taking about as much £ home as a local architect, the GP, chartered engineer, chartered accountant etc.

          All these people are starting to cut back on their hours to spend more time with their kids because if they put in more hours they lose so much money it isn’t worth the bother.

          The people in the bottom half are not going to give up those tax credit payments, not now. They’ve learned to love them. They will keep voting Labour until they’ve killed the magic money tree known as the middle class.

          It’s the socialist way, but they’ve done it softly softly this time, so we didn’t see it coming.

          The Tories are finished, UKIP will get nowhere and the UK is finished. It’s only a matter of time.

          All I would say is we just have to hope that our compatriots start to see sense and question if it really makes sense for someone doing 5 half-days a week burger flipping to be getting the same income via tax credits as a surgeon?

            Fact is the system they put in under Brown was so grotesque it makes no economic sense at all. People on £30K a year are being taxed at a marginal rate of 75% so they are cutting back on hours like crazy – even going part-time or changing to shelf-stacking jobs.

            Brown has already introduced communism by the back door, but the nation is limping on without realising the damage he has done. We need Milliband to come in and really break the system. It’s the only way we will get the people with low intelligence to see that maybe there is something wrong. We need “Winter of Discontent II” for the UK to wake up.

    Don’t quite know how to say this because your posts are, almost invariably, so balanced and sensible, but to attribute to Jimmy the possession of a sane voice may just have disturbed the balance of his mind too far and sent him into the wrong orbit.

    The truth is that he did not enjoy Brown at all. He only liked Blair for the first term but Blair II and Blair III were not good for him either.

    So there he was thinking (I won’t say singing so as not to portray it as totally ludicrous…) thinking Things can only get better… and could not come to terms with the fact that it all went inevitably, remorselessly downhill from there.

    Now he sees the party with two heads, two Eds if you prefer, and he is wondering how the world can have gone so, so wrong.

    He knows that their ship is going to hit the buffers (yes, it is so bad that the mixed metaphor is actually valid here!)

    I would just counsel that you be easy on him. He is not a lost cause, as you have rightly spotted.

        What Carlie-boy and all these twats have forgotten is that even according to Team-AGW the global temperature has been flat for the last 17 years. So claiming that current unusual weather is caused by a climate that has remained static makes no sense. Now is not the time to be making outrageous claims about climate change. Doesn’t stop them.

        The rest of us just need to bear in mind that the temperatures have been flat so any perceived change in climate is in the imagination of eco-warrior.

      Complaints of habitual sexual abuse of young boys by three senior members of staff at Kincora rocked Northern Ireland in the early 1980s.

      It is so old that I had forgotten it, if indeed, I ever noticed it. At the time I was very busy creating a large business and would simply skim the news in the paper. That we should have to wait for the 30-year rule to discover that a D-Notice (as it was then called), purportedly under the guise of it being a national security issue, was a way to conceal a series of sex crimes and murders committed against vulnerable kids is about as low as it gets.

      Whatever else is awaiting discovery?

      My attitude towards supporting publish and be damned has just hardened even further. The 30-year rule should be reduced to 10 and only then under much stricter criteria of qualification.

We know, for instance, that the person that made the original allegations stated quite clearly that no high up types were involved in the abuse.
