Listening to the Farming programme on the BBC this morning, I suddenly realised that not only have we been Governed by a clutch of morons until the Election last year; that same Governance has continued with the present bunch of spineless idiots, place-men, and chancers.
The farming programme, itself lasting fifteen minutes on weekdays and thirty at the weekend, is a snapshot of essential lives within our country, because they talk about the ways in which life itself is sustained within our cities and towns. The farmers produce the food which sustains us; the milk which makes our cups of coffee and tea to our tastes, the vegetables which help provide such variety of tastes and textures to satisfy our need for sustenance, the meat which provides the protein which serves the vast majority of Britons as the fuel by which we survive. There are some amongst us who do not eat meat, but as I am not of their ranks, I am neither qualified nor competent to comment upon their lifestyle choices, but the overwhelming majority do not share their viewpoint. But my comments today do include them as consumers of British produce, because it is on the produce of Britain’s farms that todays diatribe is targeted.
Farmers are being pushed into planning patterns, methods of animal husbandry and crop trialling which they would never voluntarily have moved, bevause they are being told ‘change here, and here, and here,’ because it is essential that they play their part in the so-called fight against ‘Global Warming’ or ‘Climate Change’, or whever the bloody buzzword is this morning!
Along with all the rest of British Industry, and farming is an industry, they are bound by LAW to reduce their “Greenhouse Gas Emissions” by 80% of 1990 levels. Apart from those of us who regularly but seemingly futilely rave against the monstrous charges which have been placed upon the shoulders of the British taxpayer, has anyone else sat back and considered exactly what the effect of the Climate Change Bill of 2008 will have upon our Nations, our children, their children and their children’s children? Alone amongst the Nations of the world, the last Government loaded us with a comprehensive catalogue of debt, vast and stupendously expensive change in virtually the way and manner in which we live; all because the Labour clowns, along with just about every other politician in Westminster, listened to a parrotted clump of pseudo-science from a set of alleged scientists, and believed every lying word that they said! We will be subsidising wind-turbine electricity from now until doomsday, and the amount we shall be receiving from these useless windmills is approximately one-tenth of what was promised because not only are they inherently inefficient, they can only operate when the wind blows!
Reminder to self: what actually happened to all those expensive turbine windmills during the coldest winter spell in thirty years? They were all slowly revolving! True; but they were being powered by ELECTRICITY because they have to be kept moving during extreme cold spells otherwise the insides glue up! Why were they being turned by electricity? Because the bloody wind wasn’t blowing, because it was so bloody cold!
Better that the many listen to the few, who spoke such words during debate as “If the Bill’s intent is taken seriously, the cost of cutting our CO2 emissions by 80 per cent would cripple our economy, closing down much of what remains of our industry and rendering most motorised transport impossible.”, or “The Bill will go down in history, and future generations will see it, as the most absurd Bill that this House and Parliament as a whole as ever had to examine”.
As a reminder that we have not yet seen the promised ‘Warming’, and in fact are watching Nature once again make fools of us all, check out the reports of ‘Heavy Ice in the Gulf of Finland,’ as well as the earlier trauma of all those ‘ships caught up in two metre-thick ice in the Sea of Okhotsk’.
However, as a final thought on the true stupidity of Government, as well as those who advise Government, I would reccomend a slight deviation to read this particular gem and especially the ‘bullet points’on Page 16. I do wonder sometimes where they find these advisors, and if the said ‘advisors’ have ever tried to convince, say, a Muslim man, of the inevitability of their thinking?
