Oh no – it’s the end of the world. Quick, start building a raft. Or a rocket. According to world-renowned climate scientist the Rev Al Gore global warming is….. MUCH WORSE than we feared!
Yes, according to Dr Gore Climate change is occurring far more rapidly than even the worst predictions of the UN’s Nobel Prize-winning scientific panel on climate change. Recent evidence shows "the climate crisis is significantly worse and unfolding more rapidly than those on the pessimistic side of the IPCC projections had warned us.There are now forecasts that the North Pole ice caps may disappear entirely during summer months within five year."
You have to admire his brass neck, don’t you? All those elementary mistakes in his comedy hit movie "An Implausible Truth" and yet he keeps spewing out more garbage.
Hey Al, if global climate change is causing the Arctic Ice to melt, how come that winter sea ice around Antarctica has set a record maximum? Isn’t it GLOBAL warming we have????
The environmentalist extremists, led by Rev Gore, realise that the more grim their predictions, the better the headlines from a sympathetic MSM. That’s why Gore and his followers will continue to exaggerate, to inflate, to deny the reality that the current spell of global warming stopped in 1998.

Writing over on Not Proud of Britain (But would like to be) Snafu rightly ask why it is that Gordon Brown thinks giving away £825million to India "protects the British taxpayer". The tortuous logic Brown employs goes nowhere. As I have stated before, I do not support State charity, I believe it should be an individual decision. Meanwhile, British public sector borrowing reaches a new high. It’s easy for Brown to waste OUR money easing his conscience but charity should begin and stay at home.

I understand that Mary McAleese, the President of the Republic of Ireland, is coming to visit the school that my children attend next week. She will be very welcome as all the nice middle class teachers grovel to prostrate themselves to this imposter.
Mary is from Northern Ireland but sadly she left us all alone to go off and be the symbolic head of the Irish Republic. Since that day however, I am increasingly concerned about her behaviour. You see I think she may need to be arrested or indeed possibly sedated.
The reason for my suggestion is that she appears to be living under the DELUSION that she has a constitutional position that involves this part of the United Kingdom. And she needs to be sorted out in this regard. You see if Her Majesty the Queen kept making forays to the Republic of Ireland, claiming that she was also Monarch of Little Britain, why I dare say the streets of Dublin would see many angry feet marching. But yet President McAleese sallies back and forth to Northern Ireland, doing her best to pretend she has some legitimate role here. So that’s why it might be good to have her arrested the next time she makes another illegal incursion or else perhaps sedated and given psychiatric help to help her over those deep seated identity problems. Her role of "Irish President" is fantastical, and one that the British people of Northern Ireland should reject. Come to Northern Ireland anytime you want Mary – but do so as a private citizen.

Did you read that Bono has been confessing his sins to the Rev Al Gore? Sharing a stage with the former US vice president at the annual gathering of world movers and shakers in the Swiss ski resort of Davos, the U2 frontman joked that their friendship was a source of pressure on the domestic front.
"He’s been round my house and it’s like… here’s the recycler Al, you know… I’ve got a posh car, but it runs on ethanol Al," Bono said. Acknowledging that a career in rock music was not always conducive to a green lifestyle, Bono compared a conversation with Gore to an act of religious contrition. "It’s like being with an Irish priest. You start to confess your sins," he said. "Father Al, I am not just a noise polluter, I am a noise-polluting, diesel-soaking, gulfstream-flying rock star. I’m going to kick the habit. I’m trying father Al, but oil has been very good for me — those convoys of articulated lorries,petrochemical products, hair gel."
Happy days. Stop making those rubbish U2 records, using up all that oh-so-scarce energy resources and charging such vast sums to stay in your Dublin hotel, bonehead.

I was entertained to read that a would-be be suicide bomber fell down a flight of stairs and blew himself up as he headed out for an attack in Afghanistan! What an own goal – back of the net!
It was the second such incident in two days, with another man killing himself and three others on Tuesday when his bomb-filled waistcoat exploded as he was putting it on in the southern town of Lashkar Gah.
Yesterday’s blast was in a busy market area of the eastern town of Khost, a deputy provincial police chief said. The would-be attacker tripped as he was leaving a building apparently to target an opening ceremony for a mosque that was expected to be attended by Afghan and international military officials, said Sakhi Mir. "Coming down the stairs, he fell down and exploded. Two civilian women and a man were wounded,” Mir said. KA-BOOM!
It’s always good when terrorist scum get their just rewards before they can harm the innocent. It was the same here in Northern Ireland when IRA, UVF and UDA terrorists killed themselves before they could accomplish their evil deeds. Must be one big shock for them – out to kill, then killed, then judged by their Maker. Great.
Hat-tip to Atlas Shrugs.

Great article here by my old blogging pal Peter C Glover and Michael Economides which exposes the myths hiked about the fanatics concerning the alleged benefits of wind power…
You thought the 2008 presidential race was shattering all records for windy rhetoric, it’s nothing compared to the political eco-rhetoric being spun to US taxpayers — to get them to cough up billions of dollars to fuel a renewable wind power industry boom sensible investors won’t touch with a turbine’s rotor blade.
At present, the growth of the wind power industry in the US lags behind that in Europe. While Denmark and Germany pioneered wind power growth in Europe, Britain is about to steal the world lead. The UK wants to develop an unprecedented 33 gigawatts of wind power, mostly offshore, that will, literally, change the face of Britain. 7,000 wind turbines — one every half-mile around the entire coastline — are to be built in a bid to install power capacity that theoretically would be enough for all 25 million homes by 2020.
Wind power sounds a great European success story — one to be echoed in the US, it seems, as 2008 is set to see wind power developments shatter records for the fourth consecutive year. However, a closer look at the European "success" story reveals that all is not quite as it seems…

I read that in the event of an imminent nuclear attack, there is a special bunker just outside Ballymena. It is reserved for the most special people in this land – meaning DUP arch-traitor Dr Ian Paisley and his best friend IRA godfather Martin McGuinness. There is some doubt as to which other of our worthy politicians will join Ian and Martin in this hole. On balance, I won’t be seeking a reservation, I’d sooner take the radiation risk than face the toxic presence of the Chuckle Brothers. Another suggestion would be to allow ALL 108 members of the legislative Assembly in – a sort of black hole of Cal…gorm. Then lock it FIRMLY SHUT and throw away the key.

She made her reputation singing the song "Rehab" the chorus of which goes…
"They’re tryin to make me go to rehab
I said no, no, no
Yes I been black, but when I come back,
You wont know, know, know
I aint got the time,
And if my daddy thinks im fine
He’s trying to make me go to rehab
I wont go, go, go."
So anyway, she’s now gone to Rehab.
I hope she gets over her addiction – watching a talented singer destroy herself is a sad thing to witness, but oh so common in the drug-fueled music world.

I laughed at the headline “Empey rebukes attack on Pope”.
Has the Ulster Unionist Leader, the noble knight himself, been gifted some profound religiosity that he can imperiously “rebuke” others opinions? What next – will he turn wine into water? (He turned his Party into a damp squib so it IS possible)
The story itself concerns the comments of a senior Stormont adviser who has called the Pope “an Anti-Christ”. Wallace Thompson, a chief aide to Enterprise Minister Nigel Dodds, also said he would oppose a visit to Northern Ireland by the Pope but emphasised he was speaking in a personal capacity.
Sir Reg has manfully stepped into the breach and suggested this was an untactful comment to make.
Of course he is right. But then again, reminding foreign investors that the Deputy First Minister is an unrepentant terror godfather might be also seen as untactful and yet the DUP keep the mouths shut on THAT one. So, unless Sir Reg is himself aiming for Papal Office (he already has the bull) he should focus on the perverse nature of the administration of which he is so proud and leave the comments from Dodd’s advisers where they belong – in outer space.
Mind you, I have a theory that Paisley may be the anti-Christ…..oops!

Did you see that Sylvester Stallone aka Rocky has endorsed John McCain in the US Presidential race?
McCain is so enthused by this that he has said he run up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Arts, just like Rocky Balboa did in the movie. Believe me, I have walked up them (at a pace, lol) and it nearly killed me so maybe the Senator should think twice before he risks a seizure?
Of course this is all about more fawning coverage for this alleged Republican. Well, I suggest you read this article by Ann Coulter by way of balance. As she puts it……
"John McCain is Bob Dole minus the charm, conservatism and youth. Like McCain, pollsters assured us that Dole was the most "electable" Republican. Unlike McCain, Dole didn’t lie all the time while claiming to engage in Straight Talk.
Of course, I might lie constantly too, if I were seeking the Republican presidential nomination after enthusiastically promoting amnesty for illegal aliens, Social Security credit for illegal aliens, criminal trials for terrorists, stem-cell research on human embryos, crackpot global warming legislation and free speech-crushing campaign-finance laws. I might lie too, if I had opposed the Bush tax cuts, a marriage amendment to the Constitution, waterboarding terrorists and drilling in Alaska. And I might lie if I had called the ads of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth "dishonest and dishonorable."
I agree with Ann. I don’t buy McCain at all, I don’t trust McCain, and when the MSM tell me he is the guy to beat Hillary, then I figure that he must be a disaster in waiting. He’s a RINO.
