National Trust Claim Climate Change is Their “Biggest Threat”


The National Trust have labelled climate change “the single biggest threat” to the land and buildings that they manage. The line is being wheeled out as a hook for the Trust’s 10 year strategy to nurse their portfolio back to health. And the BBC are loving it...

Oddly, despite making such a grandiose claim, there’s almost no mention in the report of the ways in which climate change is actually impacting on the Trust. Even the director-general of the Trust, quango queen Dame Helen Ghosh seemed stumped when asked on the Today Programme about the claim, mumbling something to John Humphrys about the need to “focus on the conservation challenge of the day.”

Surely the National Trust wouldn’t stoop to scaremongering in order to score cheap headlines

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
