Quote of the Day

Charles Moore on Green alarmism

“The theory of global warming is a gigantic weather forecast for a century or more. However interesting the scientific inquiries involved, therefore, it can have almost no value as a prediction. Yet it is as a prediction that global warming has captured the political and bureaucratic elites. All the action plans, taxes, green levies, protocols and carbon-emitting flights to massive summit meetings, after all, are not because of what its supporters call “The Science”. Proper science studies what is – which is, in principle, knowable – and is consequently very cautious about the future – which isn’t. No, they are the result of a belief that something big and bad is going to hit us one of these days.”

    …..Yes,… I remember that,and the oil would be gone as well!….We raised money for Biafra by collecting milk bottle tops,all in 1959 or 63ish!…England was still a green and pleasant culture,before the ensuing invasion that has all but destroyed England; But,the fightback begins and we want our country back!!

    It’s a power grab by a status-quo that realises the status-quo won’t hold much longer.
    Hold back developing countries by restricting access to the fossil fuels that helped us. And the taxes, always with the fucking taxes…

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
