Subsidy sucking scumbucket bastards

Here\’s an interesting list. It is described as \”diverse\”.

Over 200 diverse organisations have signed a letter to PM David Cameron and DPM Nick Clegg.

I will admit not to having checked each and every one of them. But as far as I can see it\’s a list of subsidy sucking scumbucket bastards. Which is not my understanding of the word \”diverse\”.

13 thoughts on “Subsidy sucking scumbucket bastards”

  1. Rent seeking environmentalist academics, rent seeking environmentalist businesses, rent seeking environmentalist politicians.

    Quite diverse

  2. Not even a very diverse gender balance. Only 25 or so women.

    Though someone is called Merlin. So that’s the wizard demographic taken care of.

  3. Never fear, as Green Party Leader Caroline Lucas says – ‘it’s fallacious to argue that scientists and environmentalists have a vested interest in promoting Climate change for government grants’… whoops…

  4. In other news today Mr BlueBeard of Pillage Ltd (Nautical Trade Consultants) signed an open letter to the Govt, opposing it’s new policy of hanging pirates by the neck till they are dead.

  5. British “businesses” call on …. to do something? Who wrote that headline?


    These aren’t businesses; they are a bunch of subsidy-farmers and rent-seekers, with a considerable admixture of fake charities.

    There is hardly one organisation on that list that could survive if the State teat were withdrawn.

    As please God it will be, and soon.

  6. Span Ows,

    “Knigdom” rhymes with “Nicked ’em”.

    So, it may not be a typo (or is that what you meant – I thought maybe you were sniggering at the typo, which would also be fine)

  7. Sorry,

    what is it that people dont like about renewable energy and sustainability?

    The point of these Subsidies is to encourage consumers to install energy generating technologies to lessen their effects on the global environment.

    Where’s the issue?
