Not So Friendly to the Earth

Guido’s friends have noticed that he is riding about on a bicycle – not in some emulation of Cameron but because his scooter has been stolen for the third time this year. Since it is sunny and baby Ms Fawkes enjoys riding in the safety seat on the back, it seems like a good idea, as well as being healthy and green.

Bicycling along earlier this morning Guido passed by Friends of the Earth‘s offices. The “holier than thou” crowd who campaign for more recycling had their rubbish outside dumped in a commercial waste dumper bin awaiting collection. That was surprising in itself – you would expect a recycling bin or even a composter. As well as all the cardboard boxes, office paper, cardboard wine case (Spanish red, non-organic) and other easily recycled materials there was even a Starbucks coffee cup. Ironic that CCHQ has fairtrade coffee inhouse and someone at FoE sups from the cup of the devil itself.

So Guido’s first attempt at actual muckraking uncovers a hypocritical mini-scandal at the Green HQ. Guido has checked and there are recycling facilities only a few hundred yards from FoE’s offices.

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
