Sacked O-Patz Trolls Climate Change Campaigners
Former Environment Secretary to Deliver GWPF Annual Lecture

It didn’t take long for Owen Paterson to take advantage of being freed from the shackles of high office. The axed Environment Secretary is to deliver this year’s annual lecture at the Global Warming Policy Foundation, the climate sceptic group and scourge of lefty climate change activists chaired by Nigel Lawson. One for the diary…

    He is a gentleman – with real understanding of rural issues & the fake watermelon politics of the Big Green Lobby.

    By putting that airhead who has never had a job in the real world in place of Owen shows the shallow & vacuous nature of Cameron.

    Owen – come over to UKIP.

    Things that global warming HAVE ALREADY CAUSED TO HAPPEN

    1. Floods

    5. That airliner disappearing
    6. Lack of manners in modern society
    7. UK’s recent poor sporting results
    8. Fatties
    9. Strikes in the public sector
    10. Anything else we can think of

    There was an interesting documentary on BBC2 last night about Britain’s extreme winter weather.

    Amazingly, they never mentioned “man-made” once.

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    As more and more of the world’s 7 billion (and rising) people demand a Western standard of living, which means an ever increasing demand for energy and mineral resources coupled with a finite dwindling supply, it doesn’t take a degree in rocket science to predict the future of the human race as soon as demand outstrips supply.

    1. Resource wars breakout (some of which could go nuclear).

    2. Governments try to enforce rationing leading to riots.

    3. Governments ban and confiscate all motor cars,commercial airliners etc in order to prioritise remaining fuel for mechanised agriculture (combine harvesters and tractors).

    4. Mechanised agriculture eventually grinds to a halt and mass starvation ensues.

    5. Only about 1 in 50 people survive to end up living a feudal agricultural existence, exactly as we did before the industrial revolution.

    6. The human race remains in this state until we are wiped out by a passing comet/asteroid or the Sun becomes too hot for life on Earth.

    Game Over!

    There are already signs that the tipping point (demand exceeding supply) has been reached for oil & gas.

    1. Fracking for gas is gathering pace worldwide.

    2. The USA is dipping into its oil reserve.

    3 Oil rich Arab countries are pumping seawater into their wells to extract the last dregs.

    4. All UK households must by law have smart meters fitted by 2020 (ready for government monitoring and rationing etc).

    Those fanatic tewwowists should do urban warfare on open fields where we can see them, like we do with our tanks.
    Lucky they are not allowed a proper millitary or we wouldn’t be able to get the MSM to call them “Tewwowists” or “Insurgeons” or “Millertants”. Thanks for that!

    BTW. We would like to thank the majority of British Politicians for being our friends and accepting our generous help in their careers and keeping stumm as kosher doormice. Without people like them, even the western world would be persecuting our Democracy for following our righteous Tal muddyc relligus laws about lessers and the reposession of the lands they squatted for millennia.

    Its not a case of Owen spilling the beans, he just has to tell the truth about the lunacy of the Green AGW agenda. He could comment of the multiple levels of public funding given over to this Propaganda machines, or the various levels and structure of intimidation used to silence all dissent, or the once proud UK Universities who have abandoned science and sold their souls to this religion, or Ed’s 2008 Energy Policy and the implications for the cost of living.

    Siberia Airlines Flight 1812 crashed over the Black Sea on 4 October 2001, en route from Tel Aviv, Israel to Novosibirsk, Russia. The plane, a Soviet-made Tupolev Tu-154, carried an estimated 66 passengers and 12 crew members. Most of the passengers were Israelis visiting relatives in Russia. No one on board survived. The crash site is some 190 km west-southwest of the Black Sea resort of Sochi and 140 km north of the Turkish coastal town of Fatsa and 350 km east-southeast of Feodosiya, Ukraine. Ukraine admitted that the disaster was probably caused by an errant missile fired by its armed forces.[1]

    To comply with EU intentions to form an integrated EU Defence Force, which, though no longer reported on, remains an ambition of Federalists there, we now have our newly named aircraft carrier, “HMS White Elephant”. Being powered by diesel and gas turbines, it requires more refuelling and covering escort vessels than the Royal Navy can provide. It lacks the capability to use fixed wing aircraft, and is limited to vertical take off aircraft – which won’t be available until 2020. In the meantime politicians need to find some useless purpose for it before it is quietly sent somewhere for disposal as part of our Foreign Aid contribution in kind.

    Umm … all modern airliners can be, and have been able to for years. They’re all flown by computer these days, with the pilots telling the computer what to do. Tell the computer to follow the 36 degree vector transmitted by the FZRS beacon, and that’s what the airplane will do.

    It’s not that big a deal, instead of pilots sitting in the cockpit, to have them on the ground transmitting the instructions to the aircraft’s computer. Landing is still a bit tricky, as I understand. A runway is a very tiny target when you’re 20,000 or 30,000 feet above the ground. The rest of the flight is no trouble at all. After all, it’s what they do with drones.

    We’re are SO ahead of you, darling. We have 4. And a £45 charge for using the council dump. Now, if only we could stop people fly tipping all over the place …

    Barbecue summers, and warmer-than-average winters, children who don’t know what snow is, and the face of farming transformed with vineyards, olive and citrus groves spreading across the countryside.

    “Barbecue summers” — well what do you call this one then? You climate change deniers are so thick, you can’t see that all those colder-than-average winters, children who know perfectly well what snow is, and the face of farming is much the same as it’s always been PROVES that climate change is a reality. So it fits perfectly with this barbecue summer.

    And before you all start pretending that we’ve had years of summers were it pissed down almost constantly, that just proves global warming is a reality.

    Oh balls, my cat’s just shat on the carpet. Bloody global warming! And it’s all the fault of the evil, thick climate-change deniers. Oh yes, and fracking. I’m sure that’s got something to do with it too.

    Oil floats, you see. Pump some of the oil out, pump in some water, water sinks to the bottom, oil floats up to the top so you can carry on pumping it out. There’s nothing especially remarkable about it. They’re doing the same in the North Sea oil field, which is also on its last dregs.

    Every country maintains an oil reserve. It would be a bit awkward if the entire country ground to a halt because the next shipment had been held up. I believe the USA’s would keep the country running for a couple of days.

    And the Americans have developed fracking on such a massive scale that it’s brought energy costs crashing down. Many American businesses which had outsourced processes to China and Taiwan are finding that fracking makes it worth their while bringing them back to America (meanwhile, the Brits are still arguing about people’s water bursting into flames!). The USA is confident that it will be self sufficient in its energy needs in a few years, something it hasn’t been in decades.

    I thought we started that back in the 1940’s.

    Try breathing into a brown paper bag, it will surely help.

    Tell us all where these resources have gone and why prices aren’t reflecting these shortages you seem so jumpy about.

    Nothing is running out except good old fashioned common sense. “Popular delusions and the Madness of Crowds” comes to mind.

    Really, you don’t think anyone is going to fall for that line anymore do you?

    Each year the amount of green energy being produced in Germany increases in leaps and bounds.


    Germany’s renewable energy sector is among the most innovative and successful worldwide. The share of electricity produced from renewable energy in Germany has increased from 6.3 percent of the national total in 2000 to about 25 percent in the first half of 2012.[1][2] In 2011 20.5% (123.5 TWh) of Germany’s electricity supply (603 TWh) was produced from renewable energy sources, more than the 2010 contribution of gas-fired power plants.[3][4] During the first six months of 2014, approximately 31% of German electric power came from renewable sources, mainly wind and solar; this was more than came from brown coal.[5] In 2010, investments totaling 26 billion euros were made in Germany’s renewable energies sector. Germany has been called “the world’s first major renewable energy economy”.[6]

    …and the downside is that when they tell you to prepare for burn out and adopt the “brace” position the last thing you get to do is kiss your arse goodbye

    You still around Ron ?
    You might like to know that since your day they ve built one of these self cleaning toilets on the edge of Clapham Common just by Clapham South Tube .

    Only 10 p to get in and you can stay as long as you like . Open 24/7 and very spacious . I sometimes go in there with my two Alsatians ** and there s plenty of room for them to gambol and cavort while I do the business.

    Try it when you re next there — you ll find it most accomodative , welcoming and of course privacy is assured.

    ** Alsatians as in canines that is — not residents of a Franco-Germanic border region …

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.”
