Mad Academics Call for Whole World to Eat Only 1/10th of a Sausage Per Day

A group of deranged dieticians have done their best to cut through the Brexit noise by publishing a tyrannical new diet that is so extreme that people have had no choice but to pay attention. In order to ridicule it…

Incredibly, the farcical proposal has been launched in the medical profession’s most prestigious scientific journal, The Lancet. If so-called “experts” want to understand why the public so often fail to take them seriously, their answer is right here…

Their bonkers plan insists that people cut their daily intakes to:

  • No more than seven grams of pork a day (about 1/10th of a sausage).
  • No more than seven grams of beef or lamb a day.
  • No more than 29 grams of chicken a day (one and a half nuggets).
  • No more than 28 grams of fish a day (a quarter of a fillet).
  • No more than one and a half eggs per week (under a quarter of an egg a day).
  • No more than one quarter of a baked potato.

The “panel of experts” are calling for the entire world to indulge their lunacy, even though predictably none of the nonsensical nutritionists are actually following the diet themselves. The Lancet’s Charlatan-in-Chief Dr Richard Horton admitted “I’m close, but I have two eggs for breakfast every morning, so I’m already having too many eggs.” That’s not “close”, that’s a staggering NINE times his daily acceptable intake of eggs. Some people just want to watch the world burn…

Back on Planet Earth, the IEA’s Chris Snowdon has produced an excellent series of cookery videos to explore the fantastic culinary opportunities that await us under the new regime. Bon Appetit!

Caroline Lucas Calls For Meat Tax

Speaking at the Oxford Farming Conference, the former leader of the Green Party urged the Government to urgently explore policies that will “massively reduce livestock production.” She stated that “we need serious consideration of measures like a meat tax”, treating the staple food as if it were cigarettes or alcohol. Is nothing sacred anymore?

She went on to say other types of food may need to be more expensive too, in order to regress move to “more sustainable” farming methods. Preempting the obvious charge that this may be fine for the posh hipsters who typically vote Green, not so good for those on lower incomes, Lucas said “to the extent that higher prices might be necessary, then welfare and minimum wage payments will also need to increase.” Raising living costs AND raising welfare spending. Genius.

Inuit Leaders Plead For Vicious Polar Bear Population Control

Inuit leaders have told the Mail on Sunday that there is a growing crisis of polar bear maulings, killing many members of Canada’s Inuit community. Far from the cuddly creatures that are depicted in Western media, Inuits see polar bears as vicious killing machines. Local Mayor Bob Leonard told the Mail that “people are angry and afraid…”

As Guido reported last year, numbers of polar bears are thriving despite what gloomy urban media says. Local senior Inuits say Hudson Bay’s polar bear population “has increased by 300 to 400 per cent. Everywhere the hunters go, they see polar bears. There are a lot more than in the past.” Locals are pleading to be allowed to “increase their permitted polar bear hunting quota” which currently stands at just 28 for Canada’s entire West Hudson Bay.

Sadly, state government is unlikely to respond to their plea, not least because of the backlash to Japan’s proposed liberalisation of whaling. Woke politics puts Inuit lives at risk…

‘Solar Geo-Engineering’ Could Reverse Global Warming

Global warming theorists have been claiming for decades that earth is at the no-return tipping point for global warming. Sceptics have for decades argued that it is possible to undo warming with climate technologies that would cost billions rather than the trillions of damage to the global economy advocated by eco-fundamentalists. A technological solution that didn’t force humanity back to the stone age.

Reducing Earth’s heat capture by injecting aerosols into the atmosphere from high-altitude aircraft has long been suggested as a way of reflecting sun rays back out to space. Now a credible study suggests it is possible and relatively inexpensive.

Research published in Environmental Research Letters, suggests stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI) is a workable solution. Dr. Gernot Wagner, from Harvard University’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, co-author of the study, says: “Solar geoengineering is often described as ‘fast, cheap, and imperfect’… would be technically possible strictly from an engineering perspective. It would also be remarkably inexpensive, at an average of around $2 to 2.5 billion per year over the first 15 years.” He argues that “the ‘incredible economics’ of solar geoengineering” means a few countries could easily “fund such a program, and the required technology is not particularly exotic.” The technology would use modified conventional aircraft to spray the upper atmosphere and save the planet. How cooling is that!

Dehydrated Zombie Brexit

According to a report in the Mail on Sunday, Whitehall disaster planners have contingency plans codenamed ‘Operation Yellowhammer’ to deal with the risk of Britain running out of clean drinking water within days of a no-deal Brexit. Britons would supposedly become dehydrated zombies because crucial chemicals used in water purification are imported to the UK from Europe. Apparently in order to make water safe to drink, suppliers add chemicals; including fluorosilicic acid, aluminium sulphate, calcium hydroxide and sodium silicofluoride. These we are warned can’t be stockpiled because they are too volatile. This we are told is one of the reasons why Gove has converted to May’s deal.

Is it really beyond the wit of the scientific powerhouse that is one of the world’s five leading industrial nations to produce the necessary chemicals to clean water? This is yet another example of the civil service making the worst possible extrapolations, which are fantastically improbable and assume no corrective action in the unlikely event it were required, like finding another source. Guido is amazed that an intelligent cabinet minister, particularly a minister like Gove who has been famously sceptical of the “no can do” attitude of civil servants, would give this nonsense any credence…

Don’t worry, Elon Musk has just tweeted a plan to save our island nation:


If it were needed…

DEFRA Beefs Up Media Spin

Guido wishes popular Tory hunk Josh Grimstone a big congratulations on his promotion this morning to the role of Michael Gove’s media SpAd following the resignation of James Starkie last week. Starkie just could not stomach May’s EU Withdrawal Agreement and resigned on principle. No such problem for former Leave campaigner Josh’s washboard stomach.

Josh first joined DEFRA as a SpAd in July. Guido thinks the former CCHQ Head of Broadcast is a good fit, and sure to beef up Gove’s media presence. Josh is lucky to be promoted in DEFRA, after all his hot bod – as evidenced by his glamourous Instagram page – must be contributing quite a bit to global warming…

All The Times We Had Just Months To Save The Planet

The BBC’s left wing topical comedy ‘Mash Report’ programme this week went hard on the UN’s alarming suggestion that we just have twelve years left to save the planet. To Guido it all sounded very familiar…

  • Andrew Simms told us a year later that we had “only 100 months to avoid disaster.” Meaning time ran out in 2016…
  • Al Gore told us that we had just ten years in July of 2008 to ensure the “survival of the United States of America”So America has been screwed for four months now…
  • Jim Hensen, warned in 2009 that Obama only had “four years to save Earth.” Apparently Earth was lost in 2013…
  • Prince Charles told us in May 2008 that we had “just eighteen months to stop climate change.” That gave us until the end of 2009…
  • Prince Charles by July 2009, on the other had this had been extended to “just 96 months to save the world.” Time ran out in 2017…
  • Lester Brown published in 2009 that we had “only months, not years” to “save civilisation from climate change.It’s been years…

So is disaster now inevitable? Is there nothing more we can do? Listening only to the alarmists over the years you’d think we will all be underwater within a decade. On the other hand maybe ever heightened climate alarmism will continue to do nothing to offer remotely practical solutions to the challenges posed by a changing climate. Human ingenuity and faster economic development will see us through – after all, half the Netherlands should probably be underwater right now.

Medical Marijuana Gets Green Light

Today the UK finally joined Canada, 31 US states, Australia, Israel, and many European countries as medicinal marijuana got the green light. It’s a victory for campaigners including the Adam Spliff Institute who have long campaigned for this change and celebrated with an accordingly themed Twitter makeover. Personal liberty is the real winner…

Ironically, despite the use of medical marijuana in the UK only being legalised today, the UK is already the world’s biggest clinical cannabis producer, with 95 tonnes of marijuana produced in the UK in 2016 for medicinal and scientific use, accounting for 44.9% of the world’s total. The UK is also the world’s largest (legitimate) exporter of the drug, accounting for almost 70% of global exports in 2016. Britain’s stoners won’t believe what they’ve been missing out on…

In fact the majority of the British population still feel that the bar is too high, as a new VolteFace/Populus poll revealed overwhelming support for full legalisation of the drug. 59% of people surveyed strongly supported or tended to support recreational legalisation of cannabis, compared to just 31% who opposed the idea. The UN estimates that the global recreational and medicinal marijuana market will be worth $100 billion by 2020. Forget tech startups, it’s high time the UK got on board with legalisation and embraced the ganjapreneur revolution…

Mogg: Green Belt is a Corset

Speaking last night at the IEA’s £50,000 Breakthrough Prize awards ceremony, Jacob Rees Mogg launched a blistering attack on the green belt, describing it as a “corset” that restricts “our housing market to breathe by at least 25%.” For an MP whose seat is largely green belt land to say this shows that one of Britain’s sacred political cows might be beginning to become a bit less sacred.

The prize was won by Ben Clements, who proposed a Land Purchase Act – a market-based policy that centres on how swathes of public land can be made available for people to build homes according to their own choice and preference. Individuals building houses on the bits of the green belt that are state-owned seems preferable to corporations building unimaginative estates. It is also an easier political sell to NIMBYs…

Gove Banning Plastic Straws… Again

Michael Gove has continued his war on disposable plastics by unveiling a new plan today to ban plastic straws, drinks stirrers and cotton buds. The only problem – apart the fact that paper straws are rubbish – is that the ban was already announced last April. Now Gove is launching a public consultation with the aim of having the ban in place in as little as a year’s time. One last year to enjoy drinks without soggy straws…

Climate Change Committee Chairman Guilty of Misleading Public

Lord Deben, the Chairman of the influential Committee on Climate Change, has been found guilty by the BBC Executive Complaints Unit of misleading listeners of the Today Programme. The former Environment Secretary claimed that the government were preventing communities that want to build onshore wind farms from doing so:

“What on earth is the government doing, saying that even where a community wants to have an onshore wind farm, it can’t have it. This is sheer dogma.”

But the BBC Executive Complaints Unit found that the opposite is true: the Government has in fact devolved the decision to approve onshore wind turbines to local councils.

The BBC acknowledged that “Lord Deben was presented as someone with a significant degree of expertise and knowledge in this area” and accepted that “he should have been challenged on this point to ensure listeners were not left with a materially misleading impression.”

One consequence of the BBC’s decision not to invite sceptics on to its programmes any more is that guff from Gummer et al is more likely to go unchallenged…

Green Party Encouraging BNP Supporters to Vote

The Green Party has been advising activists to encourage BNP supporters they canvass to go out and vote. In a detailed pamphlet called “How to Win an Election”, written by Chris Williams, the Green Party’s Regional Manager for Elections, canvassers are advised:

“If they say BNP or UKIP, then do not tell them that there is no BNP or UKIP candidate … If they appear to be very anti-Labour, then we do want them to go to the polling station. When they get there, they will see no BNP or UKIP candidate, and so may vote Green instead.”

Guido suspects this loony strategy may be more of a vote-winner than a lot of Green ideas, but that’s not saying much…

Stacey Dooley Blames Free Market For Soviet Crimes

The BBC have put out a viral video claiming that the ‘fast fashion’ industry is responsible for the draining of the Aral Sea. The clip explains that the river feeding the sea was diverted grow cotton, which is used by much of the fashion industry.

What the BBC doesn’t tell you is that the rivers feeding it were diverted by the Soviet government in the 1950s and 1960s to feed their cotton and other irrigation projects, which were failing as a result of communism closing the country off to global markets. To imply that the rivers were diverted by capitalists to feed global markets is literally the opposite of the truth…

In fact, since the fall of the Soviet Union, the sea has started growing again. The BBC could not have been more wrong.

Car Industry Announces £500m Green Brexit Boost

Britain got another Green Brexit boost as automotive giants announced £500m worth of zero emissions investment this week. The investments will create over 1,000 jobs across the UK in the electric vehicle sector. Michael Gove will be delighted…

Iconic British manufacturer Aston Martin announced that they would be investing an extra £50m in their new South Wales plant, creating another 200 new jobs, while Black Cab manufacturer LEVC will be trialling electric technology with the Police and Fire Brigade. While Jaguar Land Rover is busy playing politics over Brexit, the rest of the automobile industry is just getting on with expanding their businesses in the UK…

Green Party ‘Co-Leaders’ Have Three Jobs Each, He’s Paid to Lead, She’s Not

 

The Greens got very worked up yesterday about Guido’s exclusive story that the party only paid one of their ‘co-leaders’, Jonathan Bartley, whilst Sian Berry got nothing from the party. Typical of the responses was from Jenny Jones, the Green Baroness tweeted that

“Sian has a full time job, Jon doesn’t. We Greens are not greedy. Hard to understand, isn’t it??”

Very noble, and it is fair to say that Sian is paid generously by the rate payers of Camden where she is a councillor and London where she is an Assembly member. Her co-leadership of the Green Party is the third of her part-time jobs.

Jenny and others owe Guido an apology because the co-leadership of the Green Party is the third of Jonathan’s part-time jobs too. He is paid a 5-figure allowance by the rate payers of Lambeth for being a councillor and will receive extra by virtue of being leader of the opposition on Lambeth Council. So his co-leadership is the third of his part-time jobs too. Except he is paid and she is not for “co-leading” the Green Party.

If Jonathan and Sian are both genuine co-leaders, both with two ratepayer paid elected positions, why is only one paid for their leadership of the Green Party? Academic research suggests that the gender pay-gap is often because men are more aggressive when it comes to pay negotiations. The inequality in pay implies Jonathan is the real (paid) leader of the party and Sian is just an unpaid fig-leaf for spin purposes. Otherwise why aren’t they paid equally for their equal work as the law insists they should be?

Green Party ‘Co-Leaders’:
He’s Paid, She Isn’t!

The Green Party’s leadership election results were announced yesterday, and to no one’s surprise the joint ticket that already comprised ‘co-leader’ Jonathan Bartley won, with London Assembly member Sian Berry being swapped in to replace Caroline Lucas.

Bartley, according to Green Party press office is “paid the London Living Wage”, which is £19,890 per annum, whilst his ‘co-leader’ Sian is not paid anything at all for doing the same job. Either they’re not genuinely co-leaders, or the Greens have the biggest gender pay gap in all of politics…

Sian says that “co-leadership really does embody the values of the Green Party.” Values like paying men and women different wages for the same job? Or is Bartley really the leader and Sian’s role is merely to be the Green Party’s fig-leaf?

Gina Miller: “No Intention of Going Into Official Politics”

“No intentions” is not of course a definitive negative and writing your memoirs long before retiring often anticipates a run for office. However it looks like the LibDems will have to find someone else to replace Vince Cable…

Media Alarmists Proved Wrong on Heatwave Deaths

Alarmist newspaper headlines told us to prepare for heatwave armageddon. The Express and the Mirror told us that the summer heatwave had turned “killer” with “nearly 1,000 more Brits” dying due to the warm weather.

In reality, the ONS has confirmed that “fewer deaths were registered [this summer] than during the same weeks of the last two years”. This is particularly impressive given the UK’s ageing and growing population.

Despite the impression given by media alarmism, tens of thousands more deaths are registered during the cold weather of the winter than the hot weather of the summer.

Putin’s Fracking Green Puppets

Kremlin-backed Russia Today have been busy pushing Putin’s line on fracking, promoting green useful idiots to ensure that Europe remains reliant on Russian gas. The strategic interests of Russia make Putin and the Greens allies:
