        Talking of toilets, Chris Huhne was just on the Toady programme this am spouting his usual swivel eyed eco loon green propaganda.

        As predicted many times on this site, the BBC are still paying him and ensuring his rehabilitation into the establishment is complete.

        How many other convicted criminals does the taxpayer funded BBC give a mouthpiece to ?

          This is the first time I agree with the eco loons. Climate change DID cause the floods.

          Climate change is a political policy not a reality. They have fully bought into this future prediction, (nothing better than tarot cards) that they went out and changed how they dealt with rivers.

          So the government policy of climate change was the cause.

          At no time did the weather sign up to these policies and simply carried on as it has always. In the end there has to be a recognition that the flood areas in Somerset were created and are maintained by floods. They must also understand that in 1900 there were very few records of rainfall. These being near centres of population and did not cover the extreme rain fall in the surrounding hills. Due to the stupidity of the averaging that the Met office does, the figures can never show significant cloud events in localized areas due to the different tracks of the storms. So the EA build dams that can only cope with “average” high flows.

          Why did Sheffield, Hebden Bridge etc. not flood this year? It is all down to the belief of averages and models. The models have no information on real extremes.


          • Prof G Uspur says:

            Rubbish, The Floods flooded the Flood plains. Nowt to do with a changing climate, which in this case was the weather.

            Full responsibility must be assumed for the humans stupid enough to live on land that the river takes over in time of flood.

At least Rodrigo Lanzol y de Borja and his various offspring were straight but they did have other nasty foibles, especially Cesare Borgia who along with his pals had a habit of getting rid of anyone they didn’t like in the Tiber. Initially a priest being the 3rd son of Rodrigo, then daddy created him a bishop until one of his older brothers died then left the priesthood, he was the inspiration for the novel “the Prince” which was reputed to be Maggies favourite read.

Surely quangoes were developed origianally as government departments, usually overlooked by someone who hadn’t a clue but looked good, They are no longer government departments but still overlooked by someone who hasn’t a clue, ex politicos. The guys that matter are the ones on the ground engineers, and the guys that do the dirty work, not someone stuck in an ivory tower.

    I see the EA and beeb are claiming that people who have not believed in AGW have been scared into believing by the floods.

    That’s wishful thinking to say the least.

    If these floods were evidence of agw why is it that Britain suffered the same sort of catastrophic floods in 1484 then again in the 16th Century and then again in the 18th Century and with much greater loss of life than we’ve suffered this time. What manmade interventions were causing the floods then?

      Britain was hideously white and mono cultural then and also not in the EU. It was racist, sexist, homophobic and that’s why there were floods.

We have 400,000 per year but we call that ‘normal’ and campaign for more.

            Union ? What Union ?, very true he felt slighted by Richard who administered the north of England during his brothers regien over a castle near Carlisle. Would, on that tack, would William of Normany (the Bastard) actually have succeeded in his invastion if Harold’s brother Tostig and Harald Hardrada not invaded the north forcing Harld to march north to Stamford Bridge and fight a pitched battle then march back down south. Only very shortly after, a matter of a few days, the Normans were invading, if after the first repulse of the Norman knights. if his men had done as they were told, not break their lines, the battle of Hastings might have had a very different outcome.

    David T says:

    The SNP saying that rUK not wanting to enter a currency union amounts to “laying down the law to Scotland” is hilarious.

    Agreed, it plays well to the home audience. Scottish nationalism is all about having a chip on your shoulder. So is most Scottish identity.

    In the middle classes, who don’t tend to go on the terraces, that’s because all the most successful Scots leave the country, mainly for London, leaving the losers behind.

    (I’m not talking about people in sectors where you get a brass plate because you and your father are both freemasons, and then watch the money roll in from public-sector contracts or professional monopolies. Those guys stay in the auld country. But deep down inside, they know they’re pathetic. That’s why most of them are Calvinists.)

    HOWEVER, the begging to enter a currency union with rUK does NOT go down well with the ratings agencies and in Basle! (Another illustration that all the clever Scottish PR guys are in London.) You’re supposed to NEGOTIATE treaties with foreign countries, Alec. You’re not supposed to say they’re LETTING YOU DOWN by not signing what you want. Grow up! Don’t say “Oh please England, won’t you wipe our arses?” It’s pathetic.

    If Scotland couldn’t get away with printing its OWN “scotto” currency – for the simple reason that nobody would buy it, because they’ve got so few assets to back it with – who on earth would want them in a currency union? Nobody.

    They couldn’t afford to peg the scotto to the GBP or EUR either, for exactly the same reason.

    If they go independent, they’ll have 2 choices:

    1) Use the GBP as a foreign currency, the same way as Ecuador uses the USD. But the comparison stops there. Ecuador gets a lot of USD coming in (per the size of its economy) from US retirees. All Scotland gets is a few Germans, US citizens and Belgians on shooting weekends. Doesn’t matter that some of them are bankers. Putting “Ecosse” and “Skottland” on car bumpers hardly makes Scotland an internationally happening place. It isn’t. It never will be. It’s too dour and too cold.

    2) Print scottos. Players on the main derivatives bourses will then go absolutely mental to short the country. They’ll be borrowing scottos wherever they can find them, and selling them short. I’d give the currency about 2-3 weeks.

    Oh – and don’t forget – there won’t be any £85K-per-account Financial Services Compensation Scheme covering Scotland.

    I also know of no parallels where polls inside a small country that might split away show a majority for staying in the existing union, and polls in the rest of the union show a majority in favour of it splitting away. How many people in Scotland actually know that?

        Casual Observer 6 says:

        The nationalists I suspect were under the impression that they could ‘coin it’ as others have, by exiting and re-entering the EU via independence.

        Am not sure they are really that bothered about the £, but they are concerned about talk of how debts built up by the UK would be shared. S’cotland is a debtor nation, and its biggest problem is that it does not have enough resource to cover those debts.

        EU cannot afford S’cottish independence as that would create major problems in S’pain and with S’erbia. I’taly can also be added into the mix.

        S’cotland did have good political ties with South G’erman political parties, but their contacts were voted out of office the other year. The ongoing deterioration of G’erman finance also would have rendered any ‘deal’ drawn up between the two which was contingent on S’cotland becoming independent void now.

        If S’cottish people truly desire independence then they should go for it. However, the price of independence will be high in the short to medium term, not because of petty opposition, but purely because they will need to independently establish a credible currency, banking system and industry capable of servicing the debt which they currently own outright, and which will be transferred from England upon leaving.

        That should not be a barrier, as after independence they should be able to negotiate on more level terms with others, but must not be fooled into believing that those terms will be lower than they have now as on their own they simply do not have that much to offer.

        The concern for England should be national security. After the vote, whichever way that turns out, the possibility of S’cottish born terrorism our side of the border will be increased.

      politics of poofs says:

      Yes, I know, it’s ridiculous. It’s like with two poofs or lesbians adopting a child. The main discourse is about how they should be allowed to, because they want to.

      Nobody would get any funding to research the effects on the children, which are obviously detrimental because they don’t learn in a deep way from home experience about male-female interplay, growing up, and the family.

      Nor is any scribbler able to say in the mainstream media that ‘doing what you want’ isn’t the right basis for the psychological advance that occurs in a human being’s head when they become a parent in the context of a stable heterosexual relationship with the other parent. Mustn’t stay stuff like that. You’ll be called the new Hitler.

      And of course no-one would get funding to study what makes poofs into poofs in the first place. The dominant line is that it’s like the colour of someone’s skin – outside of their control and not the result of any influences they’ve experienced. Don’t try to help them. Everyone do what they want. What sick times we live in!

          Mr. Realistic says:

          Dead right. Gay adoption was introduced, with indecent haste (no pun intended), just to assist the gay lobby’s fight to make their lifestyle look normal. I feel so sad for the innocent kids thrown into this weird, volatile lifestyle. Imagine the bullying they will get at school;and they will! Worse still, the aspect no one will openly debate, the increased (?) chances of abuse – not that such a trend would ever be admitted or reported, as it would take second place to gay ‘rights’.


          • Cinna says:

            I confess the current practice of “normalising” deviant behaviour is abhorrent.
            In nature the prime motivational force is the procreation of the species. That would be considered “normal”. Behaviour other than that deviates from the normal and, in that case, is “deviant” by definition.

            On a personal level I am only glad that homosexual behaviour is still optional. Although I’m not sure how long it will be before it becomes obligatory under threat of legal sanctions for those who do not indulge.


          • politics of poofs says:

            The international propaganda in favour of gay marriage is interesting. It’s in terms of tide: reference to ‘the 18th country to introduce gay marriage’, etc. They don’t talk about the vast majority of countries in the world which don’t allow it and probably never will.

            The propaganda also says that if you oppose gay marriage then you are probably a religious fundamentalist. One poll asked people to select from three possibilities: a) pro gay marriage, b) anti gay marriage because it’s against God’s law, and c) anti gay marriage because it’s not in accordance with the Bible.

            There was no option saying anti gay marriage because it’s bad for children and society.

            Clearly we are not supposed to think about what’s good for children and society. We are offered the choice of ‘everyone do what they want’ or mediaeval style theocracy.

            There are also many articles filed from Russia and Poland suggesting that anti gay marriage means beating up gay men in the street and even torturing them. That is absolutely ridiculous. The vast majority of people in Russia oppose gay marriage for good social reasons and would neither engage in nor support such violent attacks.

            There was even a ridiculous article in the Guardian by Priyamvada Gopal, a journalist of Indian origin, who argued that the Indian authorities should tear up their constitution just so as to legalise homosexuality, and that not to do so was to be servile to ‘colonialism’. Surely some mistake?

            How can anyone type such rubbish? She’s a fellow at Cambridge, so I assume she knows that she was arguing that there should be ordinary law, constitutional law, and then, above the constitution, there should be the super super-law which says that men who bugger other men and suck their penises should be treated the same way as normal men in all circumstances. I mean even if someone is in favour of the gay tide, they should be able to have the honesty to admit that the source of the international gay movement, of the international push for gay marriage, is in the western world. Sure, some gays want to support their brothers in Zimbabwe, but the source of the lobby, of the PR, is in the west. It is psychological warfare if ever I’ve seen it.

      I thought it was impossible to be too rich or too cynical.

      But in this case I think the answer is no – because nobody (e.g. the Krauts) would want the Jocks in the eurozone (which is more important than the EU). The Krauts are wiping enough Irish economic arses as it is.

      Dave should give him the elbow now and soldier on without a majority. Cleggy is a little Hunt and will lose his seat in 2015 – I don’t even give a shit that it will be to Labour. He’ll them be off to gravy train in Brussels.

      HE’S A Hunt!

        Tom Catesby says:

        The EUSSR gravy train is the single reason why Clegg is desperate to shun a referendum on membership. A top paid non-job looms for himself and wife after his gang of scumbags is crushed into oblivion in 2015.

        I am not famous among my aquaintances as a fan of Mandelson, but he rose a little in my critical estimation after the last G.E. when the limpdicks came slithering round to do a deal with labour and were shown the door by mandy and others.

          Union ? What Union ? says:

          The negotiations with the SNP over independence and the legislation will tie up the Commons and Lords for months. You can expect that the Tories in both Houses will introduce loads of amendments to the legislation so Miliband will be tied up for the whole 10 months May 2015 to March 2016 when Scotland become independent that no other legislation will progress very much. We’ll also have the satisfaction of Labour being blamed by both the nationalists and unionists for the whole sorry mess.

          With the Act of Independence all Labour, LibDEm and SNP MPs at Westminster representing Scottish Constituencies will be immediately disbarred and Miliband will either have to cobble together a colaition with the odds and sods of the LibDems remaining or govern as a minority government or resign. All the time the pound will be tanking and the recovery stopped

        All this nonsense from the eco-loons that “the science is settled” on man-made climate change.

        For nearly two thousand years the science was settled that the Earth was he centre of the universe and that the Sun & planets orbited it and anyone who said otherwise was a heretic and burned at the stake.

        Then along came Copernicus & Galileo and the rest as they say is history, just like the Ptolemaic model :-)

    I’m reminded, although on a far small scale, of what US commentators said about Bush and Obama’s different reponses to New Orleans and Hurricane Sandy.

    It’s ok for Muslims to demand the don’t want to work near or serve people pork or alcohol for cultural and religious reasons.

    Yet if someone says they don’t want to work with someone with HIV like Lord Smith for health and personal reasons, all hell would break lose.

    Now i’m not homophobic, I had my experimental stage like everyone else and decided I liked women thats why i’m laughing at this irony.

    As a disillusioned left winger you can’t help but get disillusioned and laugh at the picking and choosing and naked hypocrisy within the movement.

    Since when did cultural and religious reasons triumph over health and personal reasons, why does the left say ones ok and the others not.

        SIZE 13 CARBON FOOTPRINT says:

        Any body who is truly ‘homophobic’ should seek help , a ‘phobia’ implies a fear, when in reality, despite the protestations of the Guardian reading classes, most people react with a mixture of revulsion and disgust when the lurid details of these bizarre ‘ sexual ‘ practices are mentioned.

          John Bellingham says:

          The word “Homophobia” irritates me every time that I hear it.
          Those who spent ages over nasty Latin words at school will well be aware that “homo” from the Latin–rhyming with Perry Como, relates to Man and “Homo”– from the Greek–rhyming with Tommo, relates to “The Same”– so Homo Sapiens means “wise man” and Homogenous (pron. hommogenous) means evenly mixed and Homosexual (pron Hommosexual) means same sex interests.

          “Homophobia”, usually pronounced in the Latin style, is supposed to indicate fear of, or dislike of Homosexuals.
          It is a silly made-up ignorant expression. If someone who dislikes women is a misogynist and someone who dislikes humanity is a misanthrope and a dislike of men is misandry, then to follow the convention a dislike of homosexuals would require a Greek word meaning bum-bandit.
          The problem is that Greeks who know a lot about such stuff and had different words for the various things that poufs do to each other–one for the doer, one for the receiver, one for the sucker, one for the suckee and so on.
          There is a Greek word– ανώμαλος–anomalos that could apply to homosexuals of all techniques, but it can also mean to pervert, as in the course of justice. Possibly the best choice would be Σόδομα–Sodoma, understood in almost every language, but using that word someone who found that act offense would be a Misodist or maybe a sodophobe.
          My favourite is ἀρσενοκοίτης– arsenokoites, which, surprisingly, comes from ársēn, a male, and koítē, a bed, but this is really for the Bugger not the Buggee, but to admit to being a misarsenist, works well and gives the opportunity to show the ignorance of people who didn’t go to school.
