Parking Surcharge On Diesel Cars
Remember how a few years ago the government was encoy=uraging us all to buy diesel cars because they are more fuel efficient. Well now the politicians and the clever, clever scientists who advise then have changed their minds. Owners of diesel cars face parking permit charges (effectively a tax) for being allowed to park their diesel cars in major cities. This is due (allegedly) to growing concern over the effect of noxious gases in diesel exhaust fumes on air quality.
The Risk of Intervention in Libya
European and American warplanes attack Coilonel Gadaffi's forces in Libya, Obama and Cameton claim the intervention in a civil conflict is justified by Gadaffi's human rights violations. Then why have no bombs fallen on Mugabe's rotten regime in Zimbabwe, or on China, Saudi Arabia or other nations where human rights are routinely trampled on?
Evidence (As If You Needed Any) That All The Green Movement Are Insane
The Green movement are trying to make a big thing of earth hour, suppoedly the one hour each year we all switch off our lights and appliances to remind ourselves of how our lifestyles harm the planet. The trouble is despiter much hype and dishonest reporting from mainstream media Earth Hour has never really caught on. In fact most peope are completely in the dark about it.
Midsome Gang Wars
The Politically Correct Thought Police have the fictional coppers of Midsomer Murders in their sights. They say there are no ethnic minority members in the cast. So while most of us ordinary punters are fine with prople from Africa, the Caribbean Asia and the Indian Sub Continent we have yet another reason to hate politically correct lefties.
Libya and Bahrain Crisis Threatens Weestern Economies
Oil prices rose sharply on when msarkets in the west opened on Monday morning. Air strikes on Colonel Gaddafi's military sites in Libya and news of increasing unrest from Bahrain and Saudi Arabia have increased fears of a supply disruption ...
Evidence (As If You Needed Any) That All The Green Movement Are Insane
Earth Hour is an event that is aimed at raising awareness of climate change. The idea is we all switch off the lights, tele, computers, highly addictive internet web sites life Facebook, life support machines, trains, cars, aircraft engines, and everything that causes carbon emissions for one hour to remind us what ...
The Nerds Are Taking Over The World - We Did Warn You.
The SxSW festival in Austin, Texas used to be a music, specifically a rock festival. Then like Glastonbury commercial interests began to muscle in. Gradually the musicians were all but driven out and now the nerds have taken over. Nerds can be identified by several characteristics ...
Alchemy For Beginners - Part 1: A Condensed history Of Alchemy
Religion and Science have in recent times not been comfortable bedfellows. Strange then that the earliest scientists were priests, people who chose todevote their lives to the pursuit of knowledge and understanding. One early science much derided by modern scientists was Alchemy, the quest to turn base metals like lead into Gold. But was the althemists idea reeally daft?
Standing Up To The Climate Science Bullies
The climate science scammers, the pusillanimous poltroons who tried to help their political and corporate pymasters steal £$trillions from the taxpayers of the world with a campaign to spread fear and panic about carbon dioxide have lost the fight with sceptics so comprehensively in the end they resorted to bullying. Now one of the most prominent physicists in the world, Prof. Freeman Dyson has denouched them as fools and frauds.
We Just Got Fooled Again
Climate Change and causes relating to saving the planet are becoming an industry, a gravy train. International bureaucrats fly around the world from meeeting to meeting (and they're all in exotic location) to take party in another feat of windbaggery that will solvle neith global warming, food or water shortage, wildlife species extinction or the growing population.
What Did The Druids Do For Us?
What did the Druids do for us? It is not a question from a Monty Python sketch but one that is being asked more often as time passes. It was always assumed the Britons, the celtic tribes, were ignorant savages until the Romans came but what we are learning from arachaeology about celt's technology and society questions this
World Energy Crunch As Oil And Nuclear Go Into Crisis
he worsening crisis for global energy supplies could hardly have come at a worse moment. The epicentre of the world's oil supply is disturbingly close to its insurrection as civil conflict spreads throughout the Gulf States and around the Arab nations thet border the eastern Mediterranea. Nuclear Power had begun to look like a realistic prospect again as sustainables like wind and solar were found ...
Web 3: The End Of Humanity
It has been predicted by the nerd and geek communities that the internet would end many things, the end of print, the end of CDs, the end of shopping, the end of real frienships, and they get sillier. The latest development however, dubbed Web 3 by the idiots who believe there was ever a Web 2 seems to be the harbinger of The End Of Humanity
Will GM Foods Feed The World As Science Says? Probably Not.
The case for geneticaslly modified (GM) food crops looked to be dead in the water but heartened by the fact that American voter's put the New World Order's houseboy in the White House the gm science lobby are evangelising their quasi - religious science again. So will GM cropsd really grow the food that feeds 9 billion people or is gm just another science scam that serves the righ and poiwerrful like global warming.

Is Nuclear Stil The Best Option?
The conversation: As we move to reduce our reliance on high-carbon energy, George Monbiot believes nuclear is the best option. No, says Caroline Lucas, renewables should be the priority. Susanna Rustin chairs the debate as Wind power apostate George Monbiot and gren evangelical zealot Caroline Lucas slugh it out:
Unions and the Left Will Unleash Violence In London
By Toby Young Politics
The TUC has described it as a “family event”, but anyone with a family in tow should steer well clear of Central London tomorrow. If you want a preview of the wave of violence and destruction tomorrow’s anti-cuts demonstration is bound to unleash, you just have to look at this picture of the statue of…
Will Portugal be the straw that breaks the euro camel’s back?
By Jeremy Warner Economics
Like everyone else, I’m fast losing the will to live in writing about the eurozone’s seemingly interminable crisis. Apparently, European leaders have held yet another summit in which they have endorsed a new “Euro Plus Pact” on governance and rubber stamped a pre-negotiated enlargement of the European Financial Support Facility (EFSF). Only they are going ...
Uncertain Minds In An Era Of Literalism
This week saw the fourth and final event in the Uncertain Minds series, exploring a different kind of conversation about religious faith than the polemics of atheism and fundamentalism, which have come to dominate the media in the last few years. The results were rather shocking in a genteel way – we were, after all, in the crypt of St Paul's Cathedral. Over the course of four months, almost everything you thought you knew about religion was dismantled by a succession of radical, iconoclastic thinkers such as Karen Armstrong, John Gray and Terry Eagleton ...
BBC Puts Out Reports About Religion Dying Just Before The Census
Now that’s funny. Just as we’re all about to fill in a Census, the most controversial issue of which is the question of religion, the BBC carries two highly spurious stories about the decline of faith. Firstly there was this: Two-thirds of Britons not religious, suggests survey Nearly two-thirds of people do not regard themselves as “religious”.
Does The Equal Rights Commission Protect The Rights Of Christians.
Theresa May apparently has the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) in her sights. The Home Secretary thinks they have struggled to deliver, and have been too casual with taxpayers’ money. That means the whole project is doomed, because the one person who should have been able to make it work (but hasn’t) is Trevor Phillips,…

Nuclear Accidents Happen - Risk Can Never Be Eliminated Geoffery Lean, Daily Telegraph
Thirty-nine years ago, one of the most senior nuclear safety officials in the United States penned a stark memorandum to colleagues. It warned that a key bulwark against a catastrophic accident in the kind of reactors now in meltdown at Fukushima was so flawed it should be banned. He got a reaction within a week. The…

Sub - prime mortgages of educationKatherine Birbalsingh
Proponents of subprime lending maintain that the main achievement of innovations in the mortgage market over the past 30 years was to enable excluded, primarily poor people, to obtain access to capital – in other words debt – in order to get onto the housing ladder. The poor benefited enormously from subprime mortgages. Suddenly, people who…
Your Standard Of Living Is Falling By £1 A Day Ian Cowie
Falling returns from saving and the rising cost of living, with prices increasing faster than wages, mean the average family is £1 a day worse off than it was in 2008, according to new research by the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Even before the Budget on Wednesday, the ‘squeezed middle’ is finding it harder to make…
The Dangers Of Pies
I see that the financially opaque, yet vociferous, lobby group the Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH) has made a study of 526 pie, mash and gravy products. They conclude that they are too salty! Particular venom is directed at ...
Libya Finally Forces Obama To Act
After weeks pondering, prevaricating and posturing, the US wants Muammar Gaddafi's head. And it will fight to get it says Simon Tisdall in The Guardian. Somehow we doubt US intervention will improve matters. 'President' Obama has during the middle east crisis which he did so much to provoke, shown himself to be pusillnimous and incapable of making a decision.
Pentagon Buys Social Networking Spy Software
The $2.7 million (£1.7 million) programme developed by San Diego firm Ntrepid allows one military user to create multiple personas on the internet and engage in extended online conversations and communications with suspects. According to military procurement documents seen by the Washington Times, the software will "enable an operator to exercise a number of different online persons from the same workstation and without fear of being discovered by sophisticated adversaries".
Guess Which Policy The IMF Will Go For
conference exposes a clear choice: who pays for this crisis – workers by unemployment or banks through inflation?
The IMF is still promoting the policy of 'internal devaluation' for troubled economies like Ireland, Portugal, Greece and Spain.
Germany In Headless Chicken Mode About Japan Nulclear Crisis.
By David Hughes, The Daily Telegraph
Want to know what a headless chicken looks like? This snap has just dropped on the BBC: Germany’s Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle says that what we are witnessing in Japan is an ‘apocalypse’. He says the international community must do everything it can to help Japan and adds it may shift Europe’s approach to nuclear power:…
It's Time For Some Answers From The Greens
The events in Japan over the last few days have been harrowing to watch, but also very impressive. I am sure that the whole world will have been impressed by the stoical, calm and well-organised response of the Japanese authorities and the Japanese people to the whole earthquake disaster ... but the political dimension should not be overlooked. The Greens used to attack the nuclear industry at every opportunity. Their case against nuclear power was always much, much stronger than their case against everything else.
With the hysteria over man-made global warming, they have ...
Midsome Race Crimes Cristina Odone, Daily Telegraph
The liberal social engineers who run the media in this country had a fit when they read in their Radio Times this week that a little corner of popular culture has been secretly defying their diktats. The culprit: Midsomer Murders, the ITV detective drama loved by six million viewers (including David Cameron). The crime: for…

Uganda's Disease Hit Banana Crop Will Not Be Saved By GM Science
Your report states: "A plant disease has led to devastating crop losses. GM could be the only answer" (A nation's staple is under threat – but can science save Uganda's bananas?, 9 March). Readers with long memories will recall that the promise of the GM industry to save banana crops has been around for ages (at least since 2001), without any evidence to back it up so far. Despite vast amounts of time and money put into research, and PR invested in its promotion, GM has failed to deliver ...
Compound interest could double cost of student loans
By Ian Cowie, The Daily Telegraph
Compound interest may mean graduates who fail to repay Student Loans Company (SLC) debts promptly could end up paying twice as much as they orginally borrowed, accountants calculate. Even on the easy terms offered by the SLC, interest which is allowed to accumulate on interest over long periods of time can produce startling effects. Graduates who…
Global Warming Causes Stupidity Pandemic
The American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Public Health Association (APHA) have declared Global Warming a serious public health threat. You may resume reading after your laughter subsides. According to this article from Medpage Today:
"The "evidence has only grown stronger" that climate change is responsible for an increasing number of health ills, including asthma, diarrheal disease, and even deaths from extreme weather such as heat waves, said Georges Benjamin, MD, executive director of the APHA. For one, rising temperatures can mean ...
