At Home with the Thunbergs

The annual Scottish comedy sketch show ‘Only an Excuse’ is back with a great sketch from the perspective of Greta’s parents. The show mocks most of the last year’s events including Extinction Rebellion – watch in full here

Vegan Tribunal Won With Condoms

In spite of a potentially impending world war, one of the biggest stories of the day has been the employment tribunal victory by an ethical vegan who argued his views are a philosophical belief akin to religion. There have been a lot of raised eyebrows, however the ruling isn’t binding on future tribunals…

There’s more than meats the eye with the case, as slipped into the trial bundle is an interesting piece of hard evidence crucial to the result

Always make sure your meat is wrapped when around vegans…

The Countryside Alliance commented “It should go without saying that no one should be discriminated against based on their preferred dietary or ethical choices. We would expect ethical carnivores to equally have their way of life protected under law from discrimination.” Although they didn’t pick up on the irony a vegan buying a product for the purpose of allowing living organisms to die without purpose…

Jet-Setting Elite Avoids Public Transport

Travelling through Heathrow, one keen-eyed holidaymaker spotted a private chauffeur holding a sign bearing the name of man of the people: Jeremy Corbyn. He wouldn’t be seen dead getting on the Heathrow Express…

There was once a time when Corbynites revered their leader for using the bus like the rest of us deserving masses, but 3 years so close to power clearly changes a guy.

Guido wonders what Greta would have to say about his new lifestyle…

April: The Rise of Greta

After the Brexit turmoil of March, our attention instead turned to the environment with the appearance of both Greta Thunberg – whose mother, it transpired, was a Eurovision star –  and the posho climate communists, Extinction Rebellion; headed by walking stereotype Robin Boardman-Pattinson who, after a life of luxury at his £18,000 a year education and Bristol university education, didn’t practise what he preached when jetting abroad for his skiing holidaysUnsurprisingly, Guido readers particularly enjoyed this clip of Boulton giving him a dressing down

Brexit continued to lurch on in its ever more unsure and compromised form, with Theresa May announcing she would begin seeking a soft Brexit stitch-up with Corbyn and Bercow breaking Commons rules yet again to give more opportunities to remainer MPs to block or substantially soften Brexit – despite the amendments already having been voted on. He wasn’t the naughtiest character of the month, though, with Fiona Onasanya returning to court again after having voted to block Brexit whilst wearing an ankle tag…

Extinction Rebellion Glue Themselves to the Lib Dems’ Electric Bus

The Lobby were all abuzz today following Extinction Rebellion‘s ongoing ’12 Days of Crisis’ protests, and today was the turn of the Lib Dems. Only eight days left until both the Lib Dems and Extinction Rebellion buzz off…

Dressed as bees, the eco-communists swarmed the Lib Dems’ bright yellow battle bus (perhaps thinking it was the queen bee) and proceeded to glue themselves to the windscreen.

Eventually, even Jo Swinson had to get off and engage with the Wasp-Bee Women…

Just to reiterate – this is an electric bus…

Boris Ignores Channel 4

There is a rumour going round that Channel 4 has commissioned an ice sculpture of Boris Johnson to melt in his absence during tonight’s televised debate on the “climate change emergency”. Channel 4 are getting very indignant that the PM is not going to do their show. Why this should be a surprise when the channel’s news and current affairs boss calls him a liar, the channel’s senior anchorman shouts “f**k the Tories” in public and the news show selects subjects that suit its left-wing agenda. Hardly a surprise when half the presenters are virtually left-wing campaigners…

The single-subject debate is in itself contentious. Would Channel 4 hold a debate on the “knife crime emergency” or the “rising taxes crisis”? It is not a neutral subject to choose. The key issue in this election is the Brexit deadlock, not carbon dioxide.

That the Tories are taking a hard line against Channel 4 should not surprise anyone. It makes no sense to feed the trolls…
