    Geoffry Lean won’t have read the report. Geoffrey Lean’s preferred style of “journalism” is to cut & paste selected passages from press handouts with a vaguely green agenda. For some totally unaccountable reasons, he’s won awards for this. But then, so has Polly Twatbee.

  2. The byline “Geoffrey Lean” should warn the reader not to continue further. He is a partial, agendadriven, cut-and-paste artist who should not be dignified with the description “journalist”.

    dearieme, I’ve wondered myself what the possible raison d’etre for Geoffrey Lean’s column in the Hellograph is. A geriatric Swampy (and piss-poor journalist to boot) is not exactly a good fit for the DT’s core readership, is it?

    I’ve a suspicion it may be purely click-bait. Rather like Mary Riddell & possibly Dan Hodges.
    If you look at the comments under the articles, they do provoke a high level of responses. Generally unfavourable, agreed. But is that necessarily a bad thing for the Telegraph. A page load’s a page load, to an advertiser.

  5. Excellent news for today’s hungry peoples, but maybe some Westerners will find it harder to earn the dosh for a Super Skinny Latte.

    A pity the ASI site no longer allows comments. Sometimes the comments were more interesting than the article.

  6. Well, if I go into ASI and the blog I do see the article but no comments nor any clue as to how I might see comments. But if I click on the blog’s title then the comments magically appear. Sorry to be slow witted. This is the case from Chrome and from Safari.
