  1. Isn’t he the guy who shoved a burger down his daughter’s throat on tv at the height of the BSE scare? Or am I misremembering?

  2. I’ve told you before, DON’T READ LEAN’ he’ll send you to an early grave, or, more probably for recycling.

  3. and why do we need a committee on climate change? It sounds a little too similar to the committee of public safety for my liking.
