  1. There should have been a full stop at the end of that sentence.
  2. Let's say I'm good at predicting future trends within the corner shop industry.
  3. I suspect that lots of small shops would jump at the idea of charging people 5p for their bags. Especially the sector who sell dodgy spirits, snide fags and crisps with 'multipack, not to be sold separately' on the bags. Of course, I'm not saying they'd trouser the 5p's or anything.
  4. I assure you, morbidly obese Iranians who run bogus charities do exist. Honest.
  5. It's my umbrella term for the massive commercial operation which has just lately grown up around climate change. I nearly did call it 'The Climate Change Company' but I thought people might associate it with morbidly obese Iranians defrauding governments out of millions.
  6. The oceans are vitally important to the systems which govern life on this planet. Elements of Global Warming Incorporated, as part of their hugely profitable war on CO2, actually proposed to add vast quantities of both Iron and urea to the worlds oceans in order to capture carbon and lock it up for a while by encouraging huge blooms of phytoplankton. And cash. They wanted to screw with the environment for money, what's a bit of bluff and bluster compared to the possible consequences of that?
  7. Thick...that reminds me, I'm also informed that they're getting stronger bags to cope with the extra swag people are cramming into them, how very environmentally unfriendly.
  8. They keep a mop and bucket instantly available in the supermarket near me, as a result of all the thrifty folk who now try to carry a huge armful of shopping away rather than pay 5p for a bag.
  9. I was just browsing through the Federal Report to Congress on US expenditure on climate change in 2013, I know, I really should get out more. In just that one year the American government threw $22,596,000,000 into the trough for Global Warming Incorporated to snuffle up. Kerr-ching!
  10. "To call carbon dioxide a pollutant is really Orwellian, you are calling something a pollutant that we all produce. Coal, formed from ancient CO2, is a benefit to the world. Coal is CO2 from ancient atmospheres. We are simply returning ancient CO2 to the atmosphere from which it came when we burn coal. And that's a good thing since it's at very low levels in the atmosphere. We are in a CO2 famine right now. It is very, very low. More CO2 will be a very significant benefit to agriculture. If plants could vote they'd vote for coal." Dr Will Happer, Physicist, Princetown.
  11. Oh, they don't talk about pollution, it's all about CO2. That lovely taxable, carbon creditable, target striveable, financially subsidisable CO2. Gosh, how the money rolls in!
  12. "Let's celebrate CO2. We know for absolute certain that carbon dioxide is the stuff of life, the foundation for life on earth. We are dealing with pure political propaganda that has nothing to do with science. The deserts are greening from rising CO2." Dr Patrick Moore, founding member, Greenpeace.
  13. Which speaks volumes about the financial clout of Global Warming Incorporated these days. I expect that most of those politicians will come to the table with their begging bowls held out.
  14. I don't know what the fuss over town centre parking is about, the additional Xmas free car parks known as Midland Way, Cockhedge Roundabout and Fennel St were open to the public yesterday, and we've not even needed the overspill parking provided by Battersby Lane, Mersey St or Winwick Rd yet this year!
  15. Especially when one air force belongs to a government which is making huge profits from marketing IS oil for them, and is watching another air force shoot its tanker convoys of black market oil to bits.
  16. According to the University of Thessaly there were 2244 violations of Greek airspace by the Turkish military in 2014, are the Greeks OK to start taking pot shots then?
  17. Standard operating practice in local government these days, off down the golden rat hole and away, taking every misdeed with them. Everybody else concerned rocks up to the office on Monday morning purged of all sins...easy peasy.
  18. I think the Afghan conflict was set up to drain the poison out of the abscess which is Pakistan, with their very own jihad right next door it kept the extremists who are Pakistans main export from wandering all over the Middle East causing trouble as 'insurgents'.
  19. Syrians. Specifically, the Turkmen militia who shot the Russian aircrew dead as they came down in their parachutes while shouting about Alans snack bar, those Syrians. What's the betting that when Putin has finished with them they roll up in Europe with a Syrian passport and a sorry tale? Refugees, bless.
  20. So c'mon, where's this ice age? Give me your best shot.
  21. We'll have trouble with that loon when Liz pegs it. Mark my words.
  22. As an example of faux environmentalism for pleasure and profit, I think it was a splendid choice.
  23. The fallacy of the phenomena which the media labelled acid rain as an actual threat to the environment is...a fallacy, yes. Over here it was all just a spin off from America, where in the 80s it was successfully marketed by big business as an actual, full scale, end of the world threat, with the soil sterilised and mankind starving and dead, in saving the land of the free from this awful fate, profits were enormous, billions and billions. Anyway, stop cherry picking. Where's the ice age we were promised by these same experts gone, then?
  24. We were assured by scientists in the 70's that there was going to be a new ice age, since we've not had it yet I can only assume that the Chicken Littles sometimes get things wrong. Then there was acid rain, who remembers acid rain?
  25. Some gangsterism in the middle of the night as I recall, wasn't paint thrown over the complainants house? No, they never did get to the bottom of that one, in spite of some CCTV pictures of the offender.
