Natalie’s Making Blackberry Moonshine

Usually it is those of us of a more libertarian bent who rail against regulations that prevent individuals with enterprise creating goods and services which do no harm to others. Growing your own cannabis, picking psilocybin mushrooms for traditional religious festivals or brewing your own moonshine for personal consumption is celebrated by most of us with free market leanings. It is usually interfering nanny staters like the Green Party who want to regulate, ban and tax the voluntary exchange of goods and services between consenting adults…

Natalie is making her own “BlackBerry Whiskey” – sounds like a cracking idea. However it is actually illegal to manufacture spirits in the UK without a distiller’s licence as required under the provisions of Section 12 of the Alcoholic Liquor Duties Act 1979 and this includes manufacture for “own or domestic use”. Public Notice 39 – “Spirits production in the UK” provides details of Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs’ requirements – they are quite draconian. If Natalie is brewing whiskey, she has got a distiller’s licence, right?Natalie is a relentless campaigner for tighter regulation of food production, the distilling of spirits has been regulated for centuries – home distillers having a tendency to produce moonshine that blinded consumers or poisoned them. Natalie is in favour of coming down hard food producers who break the law…

UPDATE: Some are suggesting that she is merely infusing blackberries into whiskey. This is a worse crime. Ruins the whiskey.

Bennett Battle Bus’ Giant Carbon Footprint

BENNETT

Natalie Bennett told Britain to vote Remain to save the planet this morning. Standing in front of a 12.4 tonne BSE battle bus…

Guido’s data bods have been crunching the numbers. A very conservative estimate tracks the bus as having covered some 900 miles since April. With the six-cylinder Mercedes-Benz Tourino boasting just 14.1 miles per gallon, it has used at least 63.8 gallons of fuel – 290 litres – on its journey round the country. That’s roughly equivalent to two entire barrels of oil, or a carbon footprint of one tonne of carbon dioxide. Sure Nat’s bike saved a few litres, though…

Knives Out For Natalie: Greens Turn on Leader at Mayoral Hustings

TOM CHANCE

Gaia spent his Saturday at the Green Party mayoral hustings in London, to watch the notoriously backstabbing bunch turn on their leader once again. Housing spokesman Tom Chance cattily warned that the Greens should take a chance on someone who “won’t fall apart when asked a tricky question.” Whoever could he mean?

Gaia approached Tom after the event and asked if he had anyone particular in mind:

“Well, I was thinking about Natalie Bennett and her housing interview on LBC… when you go into an interview without understanding the facts, people start to see us as less credible.”

After he finished slagging off his leader, Tom asked Gaia how long he had been a member of the Green Party. Your reporter made his excuses and left…

Green Party Press Office Glasto Come Down

lucas bennett

The Green Party press office has had a ‘mare this morning, sending out a series of competing emails as both Caroline Lucas and Natalie Bennett vied for attention. It seems no one is quite sure who the real leader of their party is…

09:43:

“Lancashire councillors have chance to “draw a line under the government’s fracking fantasy”, says Natalie Bennett”

11:37:

Lucas, the Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion, labelled the decision a ‘fantsastic victory’ in spite of Government efforts to ‘force through fracking’.”

‘Fantsastic’

12:20:

“Green Party leader Natalie Bennett has welcomed Lancashire County Council’s decision to refuse a planning application for fracking”

12:35:

“CORRECTION: The below quote was just sent out in Green Party leader Natalie Bennett‘s name, but it should have been attributed to Green MP for Brighton Pavilion Caroline Lucas. Apologies for any confusion.”

Did they all get mashed at Glasto, or something?

Nutty Natalie’s Fracking Faux-Pas

Natalie Bennett Scowl

Green Party leader and junior Parliamentary staffer Natalie Bennett has lashed out at the government’s rather tame plans to do away with public consultations for shale test drilling. According to Bennett, the government are prioritising corporations over people.

“The government knows full well the level of opposition to fracking in the UK. Its refusal to listen to the public shows where its priorities lie – squarely with corporations, rather than people.”

The government’s plans have been put to a public consultation…

Natalie Bennett Lands New Job as Junior Parliamentary Staffer

BENNET PARLIAMENT 1

Natalie Bennett finished behind Labour and the Tories in Holborn yet she has still managed to make it to parliament – by pretending to be a junior member of staff.

Bennett was spotted last week swanning down the corridors of power with a researcher’s pass around her neck, and indeed official records show she has been given a staff pass by Green peer Jenny Jones, allowing her unlimited access to the parliamentary estate. Amusingly, this ‘researcher’ declares her other gainful occupation as “Leader, Green Party”.

Not only dishonest but hypocritical too: during the election ‘nutty Natalie’ called for a “peaceful political revolution”. Including abolishing the House of Lords as we know it…

Green Party Terrorist’s Links to Natalie Bennett

ALF-TERRORIST

The Green Party are utilising the services of a twice convicted Animal Liberation Front terrorist to help them fight for the Wyre Forest constituency. The man listed on the Green Party website as Ronald Lee, the”Campaign Manager” for PPC Natalie McVey, is none other than Ronnie Lee, the founder of the Animal Liberation Front. The ALF were regarded by the FBI as a terrorist organisation…

Ronnie Lee is notorious for his view that there is an animal “holocaust” going on and that violence is necessary for it to be stopped.

Animal liberation is a fierce struggle that demands total commitment. There will be injuries and possibly deaths on both sides.”

Lee who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for ALF activities, has since distanced himself from the organisation telling an interviewer in 2010 that he disagrees with “the whole non-violent thing associated with the ALF” as he doesn’t “see anything morally wrong in using violence against animal abusers.”

ronnie lee bennett

As well as being listed as the contact for the Wyre Forest Green Party and being one of Natalie McVey’s signatories, Ronnie is the co-founder of the Green Party allied group Greens for Animal Protection which, worryingly considering Ronnie’s past, aims “to defend and improve the Green Party’s policies on animal protection.Nathalie Bennett is a supporter of Greens for Animal Protection…

Natalie Bennett “Open” to Idea of Threesome

No, not a left-wing alliance of female party leaders, but the real thing! Asked at a Pink News event by a man who is “living with his two boyfriends” whether the Greens would back polyamorous marriage, Bennett replied:

“We have led the way on many issues related to the liberalisation of legal status in adult consenting relationships, and we are open to further conversation and consultation.”

Probably still a bit too tame for her boyfriend though.

Maybe Norman Tebbit had a point

Bennett’s Boyfriend Knifed By Green Deputy

The Green Party’s cute deputy leader Ameila Womack wasn’t pulling her punches yesterday, when asked about Jim Jepps’ “childhood sexuality” shame at the Greens’ youth manifesto launch:

“Jim isn’t anything to do with the Green Party and he isn’t a member… I think it’s very clear that Jim isn’t part of the party and that Natalie is our spokesperson and these aren’t opinions that are held by Natalie and they’re certainly not opinions that are held by the Green Party and opinions that are condemned by the Green Party.”

Green’s Bennett Backs Geo-Political Ghettoisation of Israel

BENNETT-BOYCOTT

Green Party leader Natalie Bennett has told the Jewish Chronicle that she backs the total boycott of Israeli artists, musicians and academics. The Green Party manifesto also calls for the suspension of the EU-Israel trade agreement. Twickenham candidate Tanya Williams recently told an anti-Israel rally: “Just because you observe the niceties of Holocaust Memorial Day it does not mean you have learned the lessons of history.” After the Respect Party the Greens take the most extreme anti-Israeli positions…
