Is that a little BBC bias I spy?

On the subject of hydraulic fracturing of shale gas formations (fracking if you must), one of the main objections seems to be the possibility of groundwater contamination from the chemicals involved in the water injection process. Whilst the proportion of chemical additive to water is very low, there are large amounts of water involved […]

It was only a matter of time but it’s for the children of course!

Paid a visit to a local country pub on Sunday and I think it will be that last time they get my business.

The problem?

Well there is a rather nice beer garden where you can sit and watch the country views whilst having a pint and a fag and then there is the […]

Mark J Grant on the EU …

Mark Grant is always an amusing read and here is his latest missive reposted in all it’s semi-psychedelic glory, for it amused me :

“For him it was a dark passage which led to nowhere, then to nowhere, then again to nowhere, once again to nowhere, always and forever to nowhere, heavy on the […]

Compare and contrast – warmist alarmism of 2000 vs snowbound reality of 2013

A reminder of what we were warned of back in 2000 from the infamous Independent article – it is still online but a bugger to get to load so here is the text I grabbed a couple of years ago :

Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past

Britain’s winter ends tomorrow […]

Electric car charging subsidies – yet more expense on the bills of the many to bribe the wealthy …

Electric cars – so popular that the government is now going to spend even more of our money on bribes to increase their use :

The government has announced that it will cover up to 75% of the cost of installing charging points for electric vehicles in garages and driveways.

Modern British Life – Nag, Nag, Nag …

Nag, nag, nag …

Today started for me at 04:30 when the radio alarm came on with an NHS advert reminding me that A&E and 999 are only for emergencies. After a shower and coffee, I drove a few junctions down the motorway and was reminded on the first overhead sign not […]

Parents think it is too dangerous to let their kids play in the snow. I wonder why that is …

We seem to have become a timid race here in the UK.

From the Torygraph, we have this :

Nearly a third of parents believe it is “too dangerous” to let their children play outside in the snow, in case they slip on ice or get hit by a snowball, a survey has shown. […]

Back to the UK which is decidedly still in la-la land …

The Wasp is knackered after a long day of wing flapping to return to this strange little isle, where it would seem the government is still as demented as a box of frogs :

The prime minister said it was vitally important the government maintained its “credibility for deficit reduction” so it could continue […]

Goldman Sachs now runs Europe..

Via ZeroHedge, with Mark Carney’s appointment to the Governor of The Bank of England, Goldman Sachs domination of Europe is complete :

Back on July 3, we made an explicit and very simple prediction: “now that the natural succession path at the BOE has been terminally derailed, it brings up those two other gentlemen […]

Rot at the BBC – who is the “smoking rots brain” quote actually from?

Try as I might, I just cannot discover who is supposedly quoted here :

Smoking “rots” the brain by damaging memory, learning and reasoning, according to researchers at King’s College London.

A study of 8,800 people over 50 showed high blood pressure and being overweight also seemed to affect the brain, but to […]

Bansturbators being rather selective with their reporting – Smoking in cars edition …

Isn’t it amazing how bansturbator types are all too happy to ignore research that contradicts their message, even if some of the contradiction is in the same damned research paper that they are using to press forward with their shroud waving calls to stop us doing something they deem bad for […]
