Owen Jones Can’t Take Climate Emergency Seriously

Fair play to OJ for putting the full video up on his ‘gram. Not sure his over-earnest followers will find it such a laughing matter…

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…

Primary School Pushing ‘Extinction Rebellion’ Propaganda to 7-Year-Olds

Voters in Kent will be pleased to discover that their hard-earned taxes have been going on promoting extremist group Extinction Rebellion to children as young as 7. Here’s Ramsgate Arts Primary School asking parents and teachers to take part in a “climate justice” printing session with their new art teacher, who will teach pupils how to decorate their clothes with slogans and symbols from a radical far-left doomsday cult hell-bent on the wholesale destruction of the global economy. Even the new eco-Gove would think twice before putting that in the National Curriculum…

“Our new art teacher Karen Vost will be printing Extinction Rebellion climate justice symbols and messages on clothes if you or your children would like to learn to print and learn more about climate change please pop along and meet Karen.”

An art teacher indoctrinating children into a radical cult making claims about human extinction too extreme for even climate scientists to support. All paid for by you…

Extinction Rebellion Admit They Want Permanent Recession

Extinction Rebellion’s (and former Green Party spokesman) Rupert Read admitted to the Today Programme this morning that he is arguing for an end to economic growth. Responding to a new report by Policy Exchange exposing the underlying extremism of the campaign. If anything he confirmed the report’s findings…

“You want there to be a permanent state of recession in this country, that is your position is it… you want a recession, that’s what you’re arguing for is it?”

“… the alternatives are this, on the one hand business as usual and climate breakdown and mass death, on the other hand we reassess.”

Guido can’t wait to see the same people up in arms over a dodgy treasury prediction of a slight fall in the rate of growth of GDP in the event of a No Deal Brexit hit out at Extinction Rebellion for disregarding the concept of growth altogether. They’re stealing our futures…

Lib Dems’ ‘Climate Emergency’ Latest

The LibDems were one of the first parties to jump on board the “climate emergency” bandwagon, although they’ve not always managed to practice what they preach. This LibDem down in Leiston, Suffolk doesn’t seem to have got the memo either, they’ve plastered Lib Dem decals all over what appears to be a gas-guzzling 2004 Land Rover Discovery. Looks far too professional to just be a LibDem superfan, Guido suspects it is a local organiser of some sort…

The EU set a target of 130 g/km CO2 emissions in 2015, this is falling further to 95 g/km in 2021. Meanwhile the Lib Dem Land Rover is happily chugging out a whopping 284 g/km – three times the EU’s incoming target. Some “climate emergency”…

Green MEP Discovers the Reality of Brussels

They say you should never meet your heroes, new Green Party MEP Magid Magid appears to be having exactly this experience in Brussels after discovering that the EU that he was passionately in favour of just a few weeks ago is actually a bureaucratic hellhole dominated by stale old white men stitching everything up behind closed doors. Brexiteers did try to warn him…

Magid even suffered the indignity of being asked to leave the Strasbourg Parliament by someone who assumed he wasn’t meant to be there because of the colour of his skin – the UK remains the only country to send ethnically diverse MEPs to the European Parliament in any significant numbers. He’s written a refreshingly honest account of what he actually found in Strasbourg and Brussels:

“Next to nobody in Brussels has any clue what the European Union truly stands for — beyond a flag and an anthem — and more crucially, where it is heading. And that includes the EU leaders and senior officials soullessly waddling through the corridors of power. When I arrived in the EU capital, I expected to find it brimming with activity and potential answers to these questions. Instead, I felt duped: Making a tangible impact on constituents’ lives is apparently not what being an MEP is all about.”

“In Brussels in particular, we need more transparency in the way we make decisions. Our institutions are plagued with convoluted customs, hidden handshakes and backdoor bargaining. I’ve seen it first hand already. How can we reject the accusations leveled against the European elite that we are out of touch, when the top dogs in our Parliament and Commission are chosen through obscure quid-pro-quo arrangements agreed over Champagne and truffles in Brussels’ finest hotel lobbies?”

“In Brussels, the go-to answer to a failed system is superficial; try a fresh coat of paint on crumbling walls. We have to be ready to burn down the house if necessary, to rebuild it in such a way that every citizen from Mansfield to Milan truly feels part of and represented by the EU.”

Looks like the Brexit Party could make it up to 30 MEPs before their term in the Parliament is done…

Retiree Killed By ‘Eco-Friendly’ Metal Straw

An inquest has heard earlier this week an eco-friendly metal straw was responsible for the death of retired jockey Elena Struthers-Gardner. The horrific incident occured when Struthers-Gardner collapsed while holding a glass containing a stainless steel straw. The inquest heard that as a result of her fall, the straw entered her left eye socket and pierced her brain.

Elena’s widow urged for caution around these eco-straws, saying“I just feel that in the hands of mobility challenged people like Elena, or children, or even able-bodied people losing their footing, these [straws] are so long and very strong… Even if they don’t end a life they can be very dangerous.” The straws might be good for the environment, at the expense of humans

Jaguar Land Rover Announce Billion Pound Investment in UK

Jaguar Land Rover have become the latest company to defy the doomsayers – this morning they’ve announced a billion pound investment in their Castle Bromwich plant. JLR will convert the plant to a state-of-the-art electric vehicle factory which will build an electric version of their XJ model, a luxury saloon which retails for upwards of a cool £60,000. JLR say:

“The future of mobility is electric and, as a visionary British company, we are committed to making our next generation of zero-emission vehicles in the UK.”

JLR have been hit particularly badly in recent years by the diesel emissions scandal due to their heavy reliance on diesel engines. Now they’ve finally decided to take proactive steps to adapt their business to the costly and inefficient eco-future both the UK and EU governments are determined to foist on us. Makes a change from them moaning about Brexit at least…

McDonnell Wants Radical Transformation to Socialist Economy

John McDonnell steps up the rhetoric against capitalism and businesses once again. The “climate emergency” is providing him with the perfect cynical cover for it…

Lords Regret Commons Nodding Through £1 Trillion Policy

The House of Lords has passed a motion of regret in the House of Commons simply nodding through a £1 trillion statutory instrument on Monday. The passage of the SI took less than 90 minutes without a single vote taking place. It only required minimal scrutiny and no impact assessment had to be prepared…

Peers today voted for a motion of regret that said the Government has “given little detail of how the emissions target will be met” and “made a substantial change in policy without the full and proper scrutiny that such a change deserves.” It beggars belief that this ludicrously costly policy was passed on a whim without any scrutiny whatsoever. This should not be how the world’s fifth largest economy conducts its affairs…

Tory MPs Told to Boast About Unfunded Economy-Wrecking Pledge

Tory MPs have been told by CCHQ to share this graphic boasting about their new commitment to make the UK carbon-neutral by 2050. No other major country has committed to the pledge although Theresa May is planning a desperate attempt at the G20 to talk other leaders into it. The fact that developed countries going ‘net zero’ simply means they’ll outsource all their emissions to the developing world instead seems to be completely lost on her…

The pledge will cost the UK at least £1 trillion, much of which will be borne by individuals and businesses rather than the exchequer, we don’t know the true cost as May hasn’t even done a proper Treasury analysis. Eco-fanatics love to talk about the burden this generation is placing on children and grandchildren. For a fleeting PR stunt Tory MPs are being told to boast about piling on mountains of economic harm for future generations by a leader who won’t be in office to deal with the consequences…

All the Tories are doing is playing into the hands of the hard left, Paul Mason spilled the beans with his article yesterday all but admitting that the climate agenda is just a Trojan horse to bring about “the end of capitalism as we know it.” Diehard eco-loons will always attack the Tories no matter how much they do – since 2010 the UK has cut emissions by 25%, by far the most of any G20 country, and UK carbon emissions are already the lowest since 1888. They won’t be satisfied until the entire free enterprise system that underpins global prosperity is completely dismantled…

McDonnell Promises All Out Green De-Listing Assault on Companies

Not wanting to be left out as Theresa May succeeded in hobbling the UK economy yesterday with a trillion pound hit without MPs even voting on it, John McDonnell doubled down with an even more aggressive green assault on business last night. McDonnell told an incredulous City audience last night about his plans for legislation to de-list any company from the London Stock Exchange that failed to meet his environmental criteria. It’s hard to overstate just how bonkers this plan is…

One City financier branded it “financial totalitarianism” and said it would be a “catastrophe” for Britain’s economy if it was ever carried out. May’s desperate attempt to carve out some sort of meagre legacy for herself has started a bidding war with Labour over who can inflict more damage on the economy in the name of the “environment” which Corbyn and McDonnell are only too happy to go along with. Never mind the fact that Corbyn showed no signs of caring about it before posh protesters started holding yoga parties on London’s major thoroughfares. Puts “f*ck business” very much in context…

All this will mean is that companies will transfer their listing from the London Stock Exchange to the New York Stock Exchange. It will achieve nothing except to lessen the amount the City of London generates in tax revenues to fund public services. Kamikaze Communism…

Trillion Pound Motion Scheduled to Be Passed This Afternoon

This afternoon an innocuous sounding motion to approve a Statutory Instrument relating to the draft Climate Change Act 2008 (2050 Target Amendment) Order 2019 is being slipped through parliament. It is a bit of Theresa May’s legacy. There will be hardly any debate time for the motion. No impact statement. A trillion pounds of taxpayers’ money waved through as a going away present to Theresa May…

Sadiq Khan’s Environment Tsar Racks up 54,000 Air Miles on Long-Haul Junkets

Sadiq Khan’s latest attempt to try to ingratiate himself with the increasingly disruptive eco-loony movement is to announce that he’ll be closing 20 kilometres of roads across London for an entire “car-free day” in September. The man whose job is literally to keep the roads open is closing them for a publicity stunt…

Instead of inconveniencing millions of Londoners to virtue signal to people who glue themselves to trains, Sadiq could start by reining in his own Deputy Mayor for Environment, Shirley Rodrigues, who turns out to be rather fond of overseas jaunts on Mayoral business. Since being appointed in 2016, Rodrigues has racked up over 54,000 air miles on numerous long-haul trips to far-flung destinations including Mexico City, Bengaluru, San Francisco and three trips to New York, pumping out over 14 tonnes of CO2 in the process. As usual it’s one rule for our pious eco-overlords, another rule for the rest of us…

Mark Field Protester Will Not Press Charges

The Greenpeace protester who was manhandled out of last night’s Mansion House Dinner by Mark Field has told the BBC that she will not report the MP to the police, although she did say Field should take anger management classes. She’s taken a more nuanced approach to the incident than most of the commentariat…

Mark Field Suspended After Mansion House Incident

Foreign Office minister Mark Field has been suspended from his ministerial position after last night’s incident in Mansion House, the PM’s spokesman described the footage as “very concerning”. Meanwhile the City of London Corporation are investigating how the security breach happened in the first place…

Parliament to Debate EU’s Meaty Names Ban

The House of Lords will tomorrow morning quiz experts about the EU’s proposal to ban words associated with meat to describe vegetarian food. The EU Energy and Environment Sub-Committee, chaired by former Lib Dem MEP Lord Teverson, will discuss whether the ban would be “in the interest of consumers.” The proposal would forbid the words “steak”, “sausage”, “escalope”, “burger”, or “hamburger” from being used to advertise non-meat products…

Guido is not generally a fan of meat substitutes, however this seems to be another example of over-regulation by the EU, if producers want to call bean patties “bean burgers”, so be it. No harm in it, unless you are a French farmer…

The Vegan Society, which will give evidence to the committee on the issue hit out at the EU proposal saying is “has little to do with consumer protection and instead is motivated by economic concerns of the meat industry. Trying to ban widely-used, conventional phrases describing vegan products is anti-competitive and unfair, whilst there is no evidence that consumers find them confusing.” The EU pushing anti-competitive policies to defend big agri-businesses from market competition? Bring on Brexit…

Tom Brake Accepted Donation From Kremlin-Linked Big Oil Firm

Tom Brake has become the latest Lib Dem to dabble in climate hypocrisy, after Guido revealed Jo Swinson’s fracking cash. Last month Tom Brake flew to Russia at the expense of big oil company Total IPG Russia, just weeks before calling on the Prime Minister to tell Trump that there must be “no back-tracking on climate change & no cosying up to Putin”. His big oil funded all-expenses-paid trip came at the expense of a company who are drilling the Arctic for over four billion barrels of oil equivalent and have ties to the Kremlin.

This is just the latest bout of hypocrisy to hit the Lib Dems’ “climate emergency” campaign after they approved a massive new coal mine earlier this year. When it comes to climate it’s one rule for the Lib Dems and another rule for everyone else…

UPDATE: Tom Brake gets in touch to say

“… This is my entry (an error was made in reporting to me who had paid for different elements of the trip which has been corrected in this entry).  Flights etc were paid for by Pluteos AG.  The only thing that was paid for by Total was a lunch at the French Embassy which cost less per head than the reporting threshold.”

Pluteos is one of those consultancies run by ex-spooks that do discreet business for clients with geo-political concerns, clients like oil corporations. So no transparency there…

May Ramming Through Trillion Pound Climate Change Plan With No Proper Costings

Not content with just banning porn and plastic straws, Theresa May has decided to add a £1 trillion – that’s £1,000,000,000,000 – economic black hole to her “legacy” with her new policy to force the UK to have ‘net zero’ emissions by 2050.[…] Read the rest

Marc Almond on Emma Thompson…

“Emma Thompson has arrived in her gas guzzling carbon footprint stomping jet to serve Vegan food from the boat parked on Oxford Circus while the Yoga classes are taking place on Waterloo Bridge! Haha really? Couldn’t make this stuff up.”
