Brilliant. Watch this Youtube video of residents comedians from the Rory Bremner Show in 2007. Hard to believe they could forsee what the financial 'experts' could not. Enjoy.
Published here at EnergyTtribune (and re-published at the US Energy Institute and British Global Policy Warming Foundation sites) over the past couple of days...my article showing the prospectiv economic miracle at out fingertips...once we re-prioritise a realistic energy strategy centred on hydrocarbons.
Transforming our economic outlook wil, however, require a more realistic political vision - and ignoring the Planet Unreality nitwits at Greenpeace et al.
Enviro-nuts are getting desperate - as this article reveals. Go here for the full article. And here's a excerpt:
The French philosopher Jacques Ellul, in his definitive book on the subject, warned, “The propagandist uses a keyboard and composes a symphony”(1). When it comes to the shameful culture of enviro-spinning it seems they have adopted the art of sleight-of-hand and illusion, too.
The Economist laments that the public has “fallen out of love with environmentalism”. But the ‘magic’ has a habit of wearing off when we discover sanctimonious zealots are feeding us a diet of “smoke, mirrors and bullshit”.
But, for those who would just prefer the ditty...

While the BBC, ITV and Sky News all persist in presenting Britain's veto of closer political union (merely to save the Euro) as some sort of disaster, the British public do not see it that way. In fact, almost every poll is highly revealing that by far the majority of the country backs David Cameron's stance.
The fact is, there is a REAL opportunity here for the Conservatives. Let the Liberal Party bring down the coalition. The country doesn''t like them anyway. The Conservatives and the new political fourth force UKIP (could soon be third, above the Lib Dims) - where most conservatives like me are currently residing - could tie up and run a campaign almost exclusively on a ticket of an EU exit. It would likely win by a considerable margin.
Europe cannot afford, especially in its present state, to have a major free trade, de-regulated economy like Britain offshore attracting massive inward investment. Neither, we should remember, is the Eurozone cured of its disastrous ills. Add to that the once the profligate southern European states realise what austerity 'with teeth' (i.e. addional penalties if they don't massively cut domestic spending) from Brussels is like, and the street riots we've seen in European capitals recently will be nothing to what comes next.
Against all this, Britain will be seen to be flourishing (much as Norway - outside the EU - now is) in terms of global trade and with industries not shackled by stultifying European regulation.
It should be realised once and for all, that any notion of a (Gallic-inspired) United States of Europe being as successul as a United States of America is cloud cuckoo-land. America is a collection of states with the same culture, the same language, the same (dare I say it) Anglo-Saxon worldview that backs free enterprise. Europe has none of these things. Expect whatever treaty Merkozy double-act proposes, to set Europe, yet again, on a political path to crash and burn.
I wonder which country that' stood alone,'and was excoriated for it, would then be expected to help pick up the pieces. No change there then.
The BBC are reporting that Hungary has done a volte face since last night's Eurozone fallout and IS now prepared to sign the new Eurozone + Treaty. Seems we are now genuinely alone...in refusing to board the financial Titanic.
I predict Europe is now on course to worsen the mess it has got itself into with even greater union (and even less democracy - the price to pay for it). Unless the profligate southern European socialist states bail out it is hard to see how their economic austerity plight will not worsen given stringent governance is now on way via Berlin and Paris. Expect street riots across these states when the reality all begins to kick in. Germany and France are NOT going to be willing to subsidize everyone else's social profligacy without the new 'zone' heading for another crisis down the road.
I am usually no fan of the 'liberal' Tory Cameron, but I agree with Boris on this one, he's"played a blinder" in keeping us out of a mess that has disaster written all over it. We await the usual Ed Moribund (sic) guff how he'd have done it all differently.
TIP: Ed Moribund better than mogadon.
Here's a taster:
As the latest UN IPCC climate narrative is staged in Durban, an adapted Macbeth soliloquy offers its own summary: “A tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
It's official. There have been no alien visits to earth according to the Obama White House. Ridiculous. How else can we explain Al Gore, Ken Livingstone and Nancy Pelosi?
Pretty conclusive, I'd say.
Just published my piece explaining why fracking and shale gas is so massively beneficial compared to the tiny (and vastly overplayed - by the media) eco-concerns. For the full article go here.
Here's a taster:
There’s not a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on due to shale gas fracking – official. Except, that is, in the global energy markets. But the ‘whatever-it-is-I’m-against-it’ Marxist (Groucho, that is) eco-activists, together with the constant alarmists in the media, persist in attempting to send tremors through public opinion over shale gas extraction.
So why the fracking fuss?
The above feature article from me is published in the November issue of the Canadian magazine Catholic Insight. It deals with the anti-democratic (and thus dishonest) nature of the UN and EU. Here's a taster:
The United Nations and the European Union are in the headlines every day. They speak across national and international boundaries. Both attempt to perform a role as international mediators for peace, as sponsors of international co-operation and as champions of humanitarianism and human rights. Why then are they both so abysmally poor at all of these things? And why are they in their ethos and deliberations so inherently anti-Christian?
The UN and EU have proved impotent in the face of Iranian nuclear ambitions that threaten to obliterate a member state. The EU super-state cannot find the funds to bail-out Greece but has been forced to go cap in hand to an outside agency (the International Monetary Fund). When international disaster struck Indonesia and Haiti in the form of tsunamis and earthquakes, it was America and the Anglo (English-speaking) nations that acted swiftly to provide life-saving aid, the only countries with a viable military infrastructure capable of coping with large-scale disasters. This is an investment in which the UN and EU does not approve.
And, just for good measure, the UN Human Rights Committee is dominated by nations with a world class record of committing human rights abuses. And, in a perverse reversal of intellectual reason and common sense, the UNHRC regularly cites the United States as a leading perpetrator of human rights abuses and international terrorism.
In the face of the lack of realpolitik, good judgment and plain old common sense, we might just ask: exactly what is the UN for? And how does the EU speak with one voice for 27 European states that are economically, culturally and philosophically so dramatically diverse?

A new IAEA report on Iran's nuclear development progress tomorrow could prove the ultimate trigger for Israel to attack Iran's facilities - with Obama's backing or not. But if you thought World War III/conflagration across the Middle East would be the consequence of such an attack, you'd be quite wrong.

Just published my latest article as per title above. What we have here is yet another climate alarmist professor making a fool of himself. Below are two graphics. The first (run by the idiot BBC, Guardian et al) alleges the average global temperatures have continued to rise over recent years. The second graph uses the data from the SAME source and guess what...it proves temperatures flat-lined in the 90s.

Just published, my article on why Monday's summit between DC and the Big Six power companies will not achieve any cuts in UK energy bills - and why DC must jettison the energy secretary bent on a green agenda that is pointlessly loading our energy bills.
