A number of suggestions are surfacing about what Gordon Brown would do if he had to build a snowman …
If Brown were to build a snownman it would only be if everyone possible could benefit from the snowman; no part of the nation could be without snowmen; snowmen should be part of the community. Africa would have to have snowmen.
He would visit his friends in New Hampshire to tell them that building snowmen was a global issue and demanded global falls of snow.
He would spend considerable sums of money not just building snowmen but also transporting them in refrigerated trucks (driven by Polish drivers) to those parts of the country not currently benefiting from snowmen.
The costs of all this would be such that Brown would have to max out his credit card and due to the high repayments he could not afford to spend as much on Christmas presents and could only afford a smaller turkey. But we would all have snowmen – until they melted.
Poor ‘Saint’ Vince Cable – his halo has slipped. But there are other possibly more important issues than Cable’s indiscretions in this story; it is riddled with ironies and contradictions.
The Telegraph go out of their way to have a pop at Cable and other libdems – why? Because its leadership are anti coalition/ Cameron and pro right wing loopy. This may be something to do with their ‘secretive’ owners. Either way their honey trap was blatantly political.
Not so long ago the Telegraph Group (including the Spectator), The Mail Group and The Guardian Group ALL wrote to Saint Vince demanding he do what he has admitted he was minded to do; ie not approve the take over.
But Lo … The Telegraph for its own perverse political reasons stitches up the very man they are pleading with to sustain their own economic future! Clever or what?
But easy peasy – they censor that! Great thing this freedom of the press. One wonders what Vince (whose anti Murdoch bias would have been well known at the Telegraph) would have made of his entrapment – even if his Murdoch comments had not come to light. Does anybody seriously expect him to do the Telegraph a commercial favour knowing they had set him up? He would really have to be a saint to do that.
So which ever way this may have panned out, to pursue its own political bias The Telegraph set out on a process which was going to scupper its commercial interests.
Clever? Wherever the resignations come from – there should be shedloads at The Telegraph.
Has anybody seen The Daily Telegraph lately? Where has it gone?
There seems to be an imposter pretending to be a great national newspaper but I cannot imagine its fooling anybody.
So the question remains – where is the real Daily Telegraph? Has it been taken hostage? Can we have it back please?
Watts Up With That are reporting that the BBC are reporting…
‘Transport Secretary Philip Hammond said he had asked the government’s chief scientific adviser to assess whether the country was experiencing a “step change” in weather patterns due to climate change and whether it needed to spend more money on winter preparations.’
This ought to concentrate the scientific advisor’s mind. Are we going to expect warming weather or cooling weather?
Hammond has asked absolutely the right question. Our unpreparedness for future cold events rests entirely on the shoulders of the chief scientific advisor. If I were him I would recommend a Royal Commission into the global warming claims.
WUWT reports that the UK is using up its supplies of road grit at a prodigious rate. That makes it a useful proxy for ‘climate change’, which in this instance is a useful alternative for ‘there is no such thing as global warming’.
As airports grind to a halt, as roads are closed thanks to jack-knifed lorries, as snow snow and more snow keeps us prisoners in our own homes … where is the met office? Where were the dire warnings of doom and disaster from the University of East Anglia?
Gatwick Airport proudly says its got snow clearing equipment arriving any day soon. Why did it not order them 3 months ago?
What the current climate shows us that far and away the worst that the future holds is global cooling and what we have to face up to is that we are in between ice ages and the only certainty is that its going to get colder in future.
Sadly the bigotry and self interests of alleged ‘scientists’ have let us down. Blinded by their self justification they are not advising government to prepare for the inevitable bite back of nature. Instead of investing (?) billions in wind farms we should just be spending a few million on snow ploughs and a bit of salt.
