BBC Lets Russia-Linked Eco-Loon Tory Off the Hook

The BBC is yet again failing to meet its own standards of transparency and neutrality. In a piece on COP 27, the corporation invited Tory husky-hugger Greg Barker as sole guest. The Tory peer was allowed to deliver a five-minute harangue on behalf of the G77 nations looking for climate reparations. The BBC interviewer gave Barker a business class ride on his conflicted position …

Co-conspirators may be aware that Barker had previously worked for Anglo-Siberian Oil as well as Russian oil company Sibneft.

Even into 2022 he worked for Russian aluminium producer EN+, a leading company in an industry that produces 1.2 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. He was also implicated for his role legitimising Russian oligarchs.

Had Barker been a climate sceptic they would have barbecued him. The BBC failed even to mention Greg’s proximity to Russian oligarchs.

Insulate Britain Liken Climate Change to the Nazis

After the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby was forced to apologise at COP26 for likening the threat posed by the climate crisis to the Nazis – Insulate Britain, renowned for their tone deaf PR moves – decided to make similarly insensitive comments.

In a now-deleted tweet Insulate Britain compared climate bystanders to Holocaust enabling bystanders in Nazi Germany. Quickly realising their mistake Insulate Britain deleted the insensitive message before reposting a slightly altered but still completely inappropriate tweet. Clearly they thought their reputation needed more trashing…

Karen Pollock Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust told Guido:

“I am fed up of these wholly inappropriate comparisons. Maybe before pronouncing they ought to consider whether they’d say it directly to a Holocaust survivor or their family. I for one, am fed up of having to call this out.” 

Insulate Britain proving once again why they do nothing but harm the climate movement…
