Well, at least one of the bastards is behind bars.
It’s been a very big week in the war against climate alarmism. FOIA revealed the password, which now gives access to all the emails contained in the CG2 release. Given that the archive contains something like 220,000 emails, you can expect a bit of a lull on the blogging front, simply because there’s a lot of reading going on, rather than writing.
Given such excitement, it’s easy to understand why the other big news event of the week barely got a mention.
That was Mr. Chris Huhne starting a prison sentence. If you perhaps don’t know his name, he was the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. Under his direction, the UK adopted massively expensive renewable energy policies, which have pushed nearly a third of households into fuel poverty. Just recently, pensioner organisations have estimated this Winter’s death toll among the elderly will top 26,000 people by the end of March, simply because they can no longer afford heating or are self-rationing it down to dangerous levels.
Of course, there will be other cold-related deaths, mainly amongst the sickly and the young. It’s always the young, sickly and old who die first. Even though we’re living in the twenty-first century, it’s all a bit medieval retro.
In addition to the preventable deaths, there’s the misery and suffering being endured by families, because the choice between food or fuel is a no brainer. Lives, especially young ones, are being blighted across the whole country.
The government, with Mr. Huhne personally leading the charge, were and are still determined to save the planet, and in the face of that great and noble goal, killing their most vulnerable citizens can be safely ignored. It must have been nice to grow up rich and to have never seen the needy day.
Given the stark brutality of what can only be termed his crimes against humanity, you’d be forgiven in thinking that was the reason for him going to jail. You’d be disappointed.
He’s in prison because he was found guilty of a charge of perverting the course of justice. He’d browbeaten his wife at the time into taking his penalty points, when he’d been caught by a speed camera. It didn’t help their subsequent relationship much, when he dumped her after 25 years of marriage and four children, to shack up with some apparently reformed lesbian half his age. You couldn’t make this sort of stuff up. They live in their very own very privileged bubble.
Right up until the first day of his trial, he’d lied to his party, supporters and the country; protesting his innocence and blaming it all on a vindictive wife. He entered a plea of guilty straight away. True hypocrisy in action.
The green alarmists causing deaths and misery all over the world, will get away without any punishment. There will never be any Nuremberg trials or dragging them up before tribunals in the Hague, but there should, because they have real blood on their hands.
Nearly every man jack of them will never see the inside of a court of law, but I do not intend to let them rewrite history in arrears. I won’t let them slide away so easily. Some stuff is unforgivable and should never be allowed to be forgotten either.
