Competition : What is Gordon Thinking?

Not a caption competition this today (that is tomorrow).   For context you should know that this snap was taken from  yesterday’s PMQs  and  was kindly sent in by a co-conspirator.

Guido will send a copy of the book Crap MPs to the composer of the best 4 5-line limerick conveying the circumstances surrounding this picure. 

In the comments please…

Dear Mandy,

Vodpod videos no longer available.

A musical open letter to Peter Mandelson about the rather aggressive provisions of the Digital Economy Bill from Dan Bull.

It’s Only Berlusconi But I Like It

Guido would like to send his warmest congratulations to Silvio for being named Rolling Stone’s “Rock Star of the Year“. The magazine usually covers the goings on of the likes of U2 on tour.  It takes a true rocker to still be partying with teenage girls, enjoying lesbian foot massages and pleasuring hookers well into his seventies. He would probably throw televisions out of windows if he didn’t own them all.

Maybe if Murdoch chilled out a bit he might be in with a shot next year…

Tories Raise More Cash Than All Other Parties Combined

Wannabee Labour MP Claims Two Homes
Before Even Getting Selected

Labour’s very own blogging scourge of lefties, Luke Akehurst, has a great spot.  The left-wing Labour NEC member, Christine Shawcroft, is assiduously alerting members of  the local Labour Party branches in Leyton & Wanstead and Sherwood that she is busy on their behalf at the NEC.

Nothing wrong with that, though you might smile knowing that they are both due to select parliamentary candidates very soon.  What is wrong is that she is sending her “Public Need, Not Private Greed” reports out using two different addresses – in Leyton she uses headed paper with an address in nearby London E14 and in Nottinghamshire the address given is Nottingham NG2.  Fancy that…

PMQs Live-Chat : We’re All In This Together Edition

Time to Defund CRU’s Global Cooling Deniers

Phil Jones CRU Climate Cooling Denier

The perversion of science that has been exposed by the release of the CRU emails has shocked even that high priest of the Greens, George Monbiot:

… there are some messages that require no spin to make them look bad. There appears to be evidence here of attempts to prevent scientific data from being released, and even to destroy material that was subject to a freedom of information request.

Worse still, some of the emails suggest efforts to prevent the publication of work by climate sceptics, or to keep it out of a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I believe that the head of the unit, Phil Jones, should now resign. Some of the data discussed in the emails should be re-analysed.

What is clear is that the proponents of the man-made global warming hypothesis have not sought to test their theories in the normal scientific way, they have sought to first of all marginalise and defund researchers who put forward a different view.  They have hidden information, faked up data, used in their own words trickery, in an effort to hide the decline in global temperatures which is one of the inconvenient facts contradicting the predictions derived from their theories.  These are not new developments.

The so-called Medieval Warm Period (AD 800–1300), when polar ice melted to such a degree that the Vikings settled in Northern Greenland in areas now covered by ice, has been a huge problem for global cooling deniers – after all the Vikings didn’t drive north in 4×4 SUVs.  A massive disinformation effort has been put in to rubbishing what is a well evidenced historic fact.

The CRU is a taxpayer funded body which is now exposed as not fit for purpose, compromised by global warming advocates rather than staffed by truth pursuing scientists. It has funding largely from the British taxpayer and the EU. Until there is a clear out of the compromised personnel, not just CRU boss Phil Jones, funding should be halted. Taxpayers should be confident that their money is being used for scientific research, not to fund a cabal of global cooling deniers intent on creating a scientifically unfounded basis for a political project.

The left likes to think their prejudices are based on science rather than mere opinions derived from political goals.  The power of Marxist ideas from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries within the intelligensia was because of the internal logic that claimed it was “scientific socialism” based on immutable laws of society.  Twenty-first century anti-capitalism is trying the same trick, claiming an anti-capitalist mandate from climate science that just does not exist.  It is no coincidence that the collapse of the worldwide communist project and ideals in the early 1990s coincided with the rise of the global green movement.  Many of the enemies of capitalism have merely changed their flag from red to green.

Official BACP statement here:

Derek Draper said: “I made clear to the BACP Appeal Panel my deep regret over the political email scandal I was involved in and apologise to my fellow BACP members and the general public for what was, undoubtedly, a stupid mistake. I have given guarantees to BACP that I will never be involved in such controversy again. I will carry out all my activities – inside my consulting room and outside it – in a careful and dignified way that ensures the public’s trust in me as a psychotherapist will not be undermined. In addition, my qualifications and experience will be listed clearly and in detail on my website (see below). BACP was right to respond to the legitimate queries it received but I am glad that the panel, having considered all the evidence, including my regret and these commitments, decided that it was fair and just that I should remain a member of the Association.”

Derek Draper has the following qualifications: An M.A. in Psychology from the American Psychological Association accredited Wright Institute in Berkeley* (2004) and a second M.A. in the Foundations of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from the Tavistock Centre, London / Essex University (2009). The former was the result of three years full time study, the latter of two years of part-time study. As part of his first M.A. he undertook an extensive clinical training, undertaking over 1500 hours of supervised clinical work with different client populations and therapeutic modalities.

Guido has heard a rumour that Draper intends to write a follow up to his First Hundred Days“, with the title “New Labour’s Last 100 Days”Draper did not return Guido’s calls…

*Guido will eat his blog if shown genuine pictures of Derek at the award ceremony for his Wright Institute M.A.

Liam Fox shreds Cameron’s Calais scaremongering:

“Sad and disappointed to see our Prime Minister stoop to this level of scaremongering, especially as he knows the Calais agreement is nothing to do with the EU and agreed between the two govts”
