Euroland to silence science.
“Poison Pat” has terrifyingly naive views on carcinogenic GMO crops.
But, on other issues, from the tyrannical, corrupt EU, to the Global Warming scam, Owen Paterson, MP is perceptive, forthright and concise: and fearless, in both utterance and deed.
David Cameron’s “performance-reshuffle” — which saw Owen sacked — epitomised the doomed, rudderless plasticity of the PM’s very being, as well as that of his operation: each a 2014 soundbite machine; tribally cloned to keep office — to which aim even key policy detail comes a poor second. Ironically, less futile courtship of the Middle Class Liberal vote, and more attention to the country’s real needs, in the way that Owen Paterson made his hallmark, would pull in millions of accessible swing voters to the Tory fold. Alas for Cameron, they can’t be seen from Notting Hill.
Owen Paterson’s article, below, deserves a better home than the modern Telegraph. It is, nonetheless, a great summary of various problems stemming from one corrupt, reason-free political pantomime; whose pandering to playground anti-establishmentism, and stale resentment of success, are combining to create the poverty of discourse that now spoils so much opportunity — and so many lives.
The Global Warming lie continues dying, worldwide.
But Brighton’s BIRD MURDER project has got the green light, as government “slaughterman” Ed Davey’s POWER MADNESS hits a new low, amid plans for a cold-blooded, offshore avian mincing machine: an energetically-useless forest of spinning blades, profitable only because of govt subsidies to EON.

Sign of things to come?
Better off out.
The PR-PM, David Cameron’s decisions, like Blair’s before him, are driven significantly by the need to survive politically: hence the thought-light shabbiness of his image-motivated reshuffle.
Accordingly, if he does survive, it will only be narrowly: big wins demand a landslide popularity surge — reserved either for the best, most zeitgeist-tuned actors, or for those with real, palpable conviction.
David Cameron, and his calculated but soggy metro-centrism, fall into neither category: an insult both to the sacked Michael Gove’s pioneering and Herculean education reform, and to previous, principled leaders’ Tory stewardship, they may yet see the Conservatives fall short of a 2015 working majority.
For ill-conceived cynicism, they rather deserve to.
Scotland’s people’s engine of business growth is being blackmailed by cheap would-be dictatorship.
The Telegraph reveals Alex Salmond’s stodgy despotism below, as he strains to give his personal glory primacy over his people’s future as a vital, dynamism-infused British nation. He has threatened pro-union business leaders with consequences if they speak their mind.
Is this reckless affront to democracy, to cover his own poor judgement, a clue to his future leadership style, if he should win the referendum?
Aunty’s BBC English Dictionary
Reasonableness (noun) — the condition of being considered sane and logical by the BBC, esp. as a qualification for having ones views fed to the public by that broadcaster.

Word of the Day
Man Made Climate Change (noun phrase) — the reason why you should pay fuel taxes and trust the EU and UN (orig. unknown)
Alex Salmond’s considerable ability and intelligence is blinded to basic economics by his emotionally-driven obsession with Scottish independence.
His being prejudiced will not lessen the hardship and loss suffered by the Scottish people if he is allowed to rely on renewable energy in order to balance the books — because it won’t save the doomed wind industry, never a viable power option, and now a joke as cooling climates expose Man Made Climate Change lies, and snuff EU grants.
The Scottish people — inventors, scientists, engineers and pioneering academics — have long combined the logic of gritty thrift with high abstract thought: neither of which would be satisfied by Mr Salmond’s proposed, indulgent retreat to a personal Fairytale Kingdom, built on wind and debt, where his dreams live, yet Scotland’s wealth is choked.
A Telegraph report paints a worrying picture of Prince Charles’ bias-driven lobbying of the British government, and his active support for the Labour Party — despite the political neutrality demanded of the Heir to the Throne and future Monarch.
Will his reign, if it comes about as expected, have elements of neo-feudalist direct control: returning politics to a state like France’s pre-revolution ancienne-regime?
Can Britain afford an unelected, yet obsessively interfering “Royal President”, whose reverence for money-burning, mythical Man Made Climate Change — as June snow buries South America and Utah, and as the sun weakens — will risk the economy and chill the old with fuel poverty?
Can Britain afford a leader with the self-indulgence and arrogance to make the sacred, tax-sponsored throne not a focus of national wellbeing, but a back door to unelected rule?
