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

Public say Corbyn a Bigger ‘Villain’ than Epstein

Corbyn’s astounding and unprecedented levels of unpopularity for a Labour leader have long been commented upon, but a new poll from Opinium helps contextualise just how poorly Corbyn is perceived by the public; being ranked by 29% as the ‘villain’ of 2019 – 1% higher than disgraced – now dead – paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. He’s always said he’s in a battle with billionaires…

Corbyn can find some solace in Donald Trump’s easy victory in the villainy poll, taking 39% of the vote. Is Corbyn getting used to losing by double-digit losses yet?…

Boris, on the other hand, received 19% in the reciprocal ‘hero of 2019’ poll, with David Attenborough winning on 35% to Greta Thunberg’s second place of 21%. Will the elderly ever stop stealing Greta’s dreams…

Boris on Extinction Rebellion

At the launch of Charles Moore’s third and final Thatcher biography last night hosted by Policy Exchange, Boris Johnson took the opportunity to comment on the surrounding “uncooperative crusties and protesters of all kinds littering the road”

“When we are waylaid in the streets, as I am sure we will be, by importunate nose-ringed dreadlocked climate change protesters”

“[Margaret Thatcher] took it seriously long before Greta Thunberg.”

“The best thing possible for the education of the denizens of those heaving, hemp smelling, bivouacs that now litter Trafalgar Square and Hyde Park and the rest of them. The best thing for them would be to stop blocking the traffic and buy a copy of Charles’ magnificent book.

Safe to say he’s not a particular fan…

Greta’s Titanic Hypocrisy

As Greta Thunberg continues to poo in a bucket across the Atlantic, it has emerged her trip is not nearly as environmental as she first made out. Nobody could have seen this coming… 

The €4 million yacht she’s sailing on is made of carbon fibre – a material with a carbon footprint 14 times higher than that of steel, and that “spews out a significant amount of greenhouse gases” during its manufacturing. It’s always worth reminding Greta that flying only accounts for between 2 and 5% of the world’s carbon emissions… GQ’s ‘game changer of the year’ clearly putting carbon fibre over moral fibre…

UPDATE: It transpires that the five people bringing the boat back from NYC will first fly over to the States, meaning in total Greta’s PR trip will end up creating six times the emissions it would have done if she’d just flown over to begin with…

Corbyn’s Councils Have Over £1 Billion Invested in Fracking

This week the Labour Party attacked Jo Swinson’s “hypocrisy” for accepting fossil fuel donations given her supposedly green credentials, saying “you simply can’t trust the Liberal Democrats”, while Corbyn accused Boris of “bending the knee” to fracking companies. He might want to look a bit closer to home first, it turns out Corbyn’s Labour council and and those of his top team have invested over £1 billion in oil and gas companies. Quite a frack up for the Labour Party, who’s “bending the knee” now…

Despite saying Labour will ban fracking, Corbyn and Thornberry’s, Starmer’s and Tom Watson’s Labour councils are all among those investing over £700 million in oil and fracking giant Shell alone. Among the shadow cabinet as a whole there’s also £558 million invested in BP. Unusually sound financial decisions from Labour councils, will Corbyn now take to the streets for a fossil fuel divestment protest against his own council…?

Perhaps it’s no surprise that Corbyn hasn’t made a fuss given his complete lack of interest in climate issues before a global cult developed around 16-year-old who wanders the earth telling everyone the end is nigh unless the world economy is brought to its knees. And the hard left realised it was the perfect vehicle to both win votes from young people and build broader public support for the wholesale destruction of capitalism...

French Deputies Boycott “Apocalyptic Guru” Greta Thunberg

French MPs are starting to wake up to the fact that a 16-year old who wanders the world peddling miss-truths, telling people the end is nigh, and calling for the destruction of the global economic system as we know it may not be the best authority to blindly and uncritically rely on. Thunberg was invited to speak in the French Assemblée Nationale today, some French Deputies actually organised a boycott. Unlike British MPs who are happy to just fawn over someone who speaks casually about decimating the global economy…

Guillaume Larrivé, presidential candidate from centre-right Les Republicains wrote:

“I call on fellow MPs to boycott @GretaThunberg in the National Assembly. To fight climate change intelligently, we do not need apocalyptic gurus, but scientific progress and political courage.”

Fellow Republicains MP Julien Aubert said:

I respect the freedom to think … but do not count on me to applaud a prophetess in shorts, “Nobel Fear Prize”. The planet yes, green business, no.”

Thunberg’s response was that she had “never met a climate activist who was in it for money.” Evidently she didn’t have the time to meet John Gummer when she was last in the UK…
