Maybe it's just me: http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30400-1309079,00.html From Phil Thornhill, co-ordinator of that bunch of tree hugging hippies, the campaign against climate change: "It's tinkering at the edges of what has to be done when you consider the sums of money spent on green issues and compare that to the Â£6bn being spent on road-widening or the extra Â£2bn on troops in Iraq. "Climate change is a threat to national security and should be taken with the same seriousness as the threat of an enemy invasion or a war." Does this guy seriously liken himself and his fellow hippies to, or even place himself in the same league as the men and women that go overseas to fight, mostly without the so-called "extra 2bn", on behalf of this country and it's people? Does he seriously imagine that a well funded and well equipped anti-climate-change group exclusive to the UK is going to make any more than the tinest rat's pellet of difference to the greatest political cash cow of the early 21st century, so called climate change? Troops have been doing a very difficult job for years and years, with less kit and less supplies than they've needed, while the government seemingly screws them over behind the scenes, and our men and women have kept the show running, despite this. And then as soon as the government "give" 2bn extra to the armed forces, this tree hugging nutjob comes along and has the absolute and sheer cheek to say "Why do they get extra money? My supporters and our agenda are just as important and deserving as the armed forces". Yes, I may well be taking his comments a little out of context, but frankly I have very little truck with so called climate change, which on the face of it, seems nothing more than an excuse for the government to tax every single thing in the country, while putting very little of it back into the country, while every other country in the world does whatever they want, which in China's case includes building factories and power plants etc etc etc. And despite the fact that the entire UK could become solar powered and China would still be turning that corner of the planet yellow - literally - this Thornhill prick dares to try and put himself and his loony nutjob tree shaggers in the same league as the people out in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bloody prick. Rant over, just something that caught my eye. If it didn't make much sense, that's just me for you.
