We can explain this

I could hardly disagree, could I? It’s been more than a decade coming, and about 440 blogs worth of effort here to help keep it going, but the time for the Green New Deal has arrived. And it’s now.

But not a word of it was heard in the Queen’s Speech, which hardly mentioned climate-related issues at all. Which is how out of touch this government is.

The current government disagrees with you Ritchie. That’s why your foolishness is not in the Queen’s Speech.

  1. According to the potato’s prognostications he shouldn’t be writing blogs- he should be busy selling his car and removing his central heating system, shortly to be followed by demolishing his house and turning the plot back into farmland. Is he doing any of this ?? – climate emergency/catastrophe my arse.

  2. @moqifen

    Everyone knows he should demolish his house and turn the plot into a mixture of forest, tidal marshland, peat bog and wildflower meadow so that it can be prepared for rewilding.

  3. I understand he’s waiting for a replenishment order of green ink pens, Rob. Responsibly and sustainably sourced, of course.

  4. Only Richard Murphy would listen to the Queen’s speech to see if he was mentioned in some way.

  5. At the conference, Sajid Javid was making green noises and seemed flummoxed when the audience did not applaud him. I hope the penny is dropping that no one other than children and socialist morons believes in climate emergencies but I am not very hopeful. First they came for your diesel cars. Then they came for your wood burning stoves. Then they came for your gas boilers…

  6. Can you get gas-powered Agas? I thought they were wood fuelled, but on Costing The Earth this afternoon they mentioned “when they come to rip out our gas boilers, my readers won’t want to let go of their Agas”.

    As an aside, b*gger that, I won’t and don’t want to let go of my gas boiler.

  7. “AGA’s own figures … indicate that the smallest traditional two-oven gas AGA providing simple cooking functions (i.e. no water heating or central heating) consumes thirty-eight times as much as a standard gas oven and hob”

    Sheeeee!!!!! Never mind the gas boilers, rip out the AGAs! Even accounting for the AGA functioning as space and water heating, that only reduces it to SEVENTEEN* times the consumption of a gas boiler+cooker. (*Personal figures showing cooker/boiler typically 50/50 split)

  9. Richie who – who the fuck are you talking about and why doesn’t somebody make it clear so dobos like me can work out what the fuck is going on?

  10. Jimmy, Dennis the Geography Master and Pedant clearly states that this is about Richard Murphy. You can find his extraordinary blog on the search engine of your choice

  11. hmmm so on finding Tims blog there’s stages people go through

    1. Who the hell is this Richie guy and why are you ragging on him
    2. Surely he can’t be that bad
    3. Ok he’s clearly an idiot, but maybe I can post a comment on his blog and try and reason with him
    4. Tosspot, better just to make fun with him, personally maybe Tim’s being a bit too nice etc.

  12. There’s still too much green wank in the Queen’s Speech.

    Not that she minds; she’s making a fortune out of offshore wind farms.

  13. Mr Potato wrong again – sadly

    No matter how much Green Crap a Tory Gov’t does, it will never satisfy Left Anti-Capitalist Green Zealots

    Hence why Tories should stop pandering to them and other Left agitators – learn from Trump & ignore them

    Richard Murphy, Chartered Accountant is the cretin in question.
    Tax Research UK is his shitty little blog.

    Doesn’t know tax. Doesn’t know accounting. Can’t write for shit. Can’t make a living. Can’t keep a wife. But knows how to save both mankind and the world.

    The sort of ass who will sit in a coffee shop and lecture you for an hour about saving the less fortunate and then stop mid-sentence to bitch out a waiter for bringing him the wrong flavor scone. A toothache of a man.

  15. In fairness getting the wrong scone is a pretty terrible offence.
    More likely he wold chastise them for using coffee beans from their Swiss subsidiary that use HMRC and world tax treaties approved transfer pricing mechanism to avoid some imagined taxation figure.

  16. ‘the Queen’s Speech, which hardly mentioned climate-related issues at all. Which is how out of touch this government is.’

    England has been Cfb (Köppen-Geiger) for over a hundred years. There is no evidence whatsoever that England won’t be Cfb for another hundred years. What are these ‘climate-related issues,’ and why should the queen care?

    Fact is, climate talk is just a declaration of orthodoxy. The Queen has failed to give a nod to the Left. GOOD!

  17. “I could hardly disagree, could I? It’s been more than a decade coming, and about 440 blogs worth of effort here to help keep it going, but the time for the Green New Deal has arrived. ”

    As far as I’m aware, the New Green Deal first made its appearance year before last, didn’t it? Shortly after he removed his tongue from Corbyn’s anus & started pitching for Green money?
    Presumably we’ve always been at war with Eurasia
