Warm your cockles over this...

...blogger Richard Fernandez writes of the Guardian howling with alarm (delicious phrase !) over the UK Labour Party meltdown and its implications for Europe...Even the left wing Guardian lamented “...Labour suffers long, dark night of humiliation — Tories surge as BNP wins first Euro seats”. Even the Conservative’s David Cameron is finding that he may have to shift further to the right simply to remain in step with the European Electoral results. The Guardian (again !) howls in alarm:
The Tories’ success means that Cameron will face one of the toughest challenges of his leadership: taking the party out of the main centre-right EPP-ED grouping in Strasbourg and establishing a new pan-European Eurosceptic group. Under the EU parliament’s rules, the Tories must include MEPs from at least seven member countries to form a grouping.
Cameron has faced criticism from party grandees and former senior diplomats because his group will be dominated by socially conservative parties from eastern Europe. The two biggest parties that have pledged to join the new group are the ODS from the Czech Republic, whose founder, Vaclav Klaus, has questioned many current assumptions about climate change, and Poland’s Law and Justice party, whose founders have made homophobic statements

...with the loss of the influence of UK Labour Party the green/left face an invigorated climate change scepticism movement within the European Parliament. Watch the hysteria and green scare stories move into overdrive...

Love your work Micky!!

I read somewhere today the alarmists are looking to punish those that cause global warming. Apparently they can't find a gaol big enough in which to incarcerate the sun!!LOL

Hi Jenny. Put the sun in the pokey ? Yes, I heard someone say "Of course it's getting cooler. All that CO2 we produce is starting to extinguish the sun"

Nice to have you visit, call in again.

This thing just won't die, will it? There are too many reputations and too many dollars at stake for them to back down now.

Well, I don't know about that. There are plenty of bright graduates around who have been able to resist their PC lecturers who will be taking their place up front in due course. Truth will eventually win, and with continued pressure from the blogosphere that time will come...

Oh yeah, they're really going off their heads with this, the leftists are going more insane than usual and it's brings such warm joy to me cockles.

MK I think the main thing wrong with the greenies, apart from their inability to think straight, is chronically cold cockles. And they are lonely as a result...
