• Melanie Phillips: The Real Western Civilisation Emergency

    • Date: 22/02/20
    • Melanie Phillips

    The “climate emergency”, which we are told threatens the imminent collapse of civilisation and the extinction of humanity, is a dogma being enforced by a culturally totalitarian tyranny. Threatening the living standards of millions, permitting no challenge and wrecking the livelihoods and reputations of any who dares dissent, it has been created by a repudiation […]

  • The Sun Warns Boris: Punishing Hard-Working Brits By Hiking Fuel Tax Is A Sure Way To Lose Votes

    • Date: 21/02/20
    • Editorial, The Sun

    Punishing hard-working people for going about their daily business is a sure way to haemorrhage votes. For smart city types blessed with excellent transport links, the increase would be a nuisance. But for the Prime Minister’s new wave of voters who switched to Tory — ordinary grafters living in towns and villages — it’d be […]

  • Owen Paterson: Leaving The EU Is A Chance To Rethink Our Disastrous Flooding Policy

    • Date: 20/02/20
    • Owen Paterson, The Daily Telegraph

    Policies created by a remote body have been inflexibly implemented on the ground – to catastrophic effect Storms Ciara and Dennis have been a sobering reminder of the awful damage which flooding can cause. For those directly affected, they have been much more than that. One of my worst memories of being DEFRA Secretary is seeing […]

  • Delingpole: Sorry, Gove, But Americans Don’t Accept Your Climate Obsession

    • Date: 13/02/20
    • James Delingpole, Breitbart

    Unilaterally decarbonising it — as seems to be Boris Johnson’s and Michael Gove’s wizard plane — must surely count among the most suicidally pointless plan ever devised by any government in history, especially by one wearing the ‘Conservative’ tag. Michael Gove – the most powerful figure in the UK government after Boris Johnson – has […]

    People will balk at Johnson’s electric car diktat when they see the cost Bursars tend to be robust, even tactless characters. In my school and college years they were often from a military background, which augmented the no-nonsense impression. Robust certainly describes the response of that authority the other day at St John’s College, Oxford, […]

  • Boris Has Fallen Into A Trap By Sucking Up To David Attenborough

    • Date: 08/02/20
    • Charles Moore, The Spectator

    Little good can come of the Glasgow COP, as David Cameron presumably recognises by refusing to chair the UN climate conference   Regardless of one’s views on climate change, one should welcome the fact that Boris Johnson removed Claire Perry O’Neill from her post as president of this year’s Conference of the Parties (COP 26), […]

    Last year was the year the climate issue took a sharp turn towards extremism. Let’s hope 2020 is the year sanity makes a comeback. There have long been three groups occupying the climate issue. To avoid pejoratives, I will call them A, B and C. The A group are the doubters. They don’t believe greenhouse […]

  • Even Privatisation May Come Too Late To Save An Increasingly Irrelevant BBC

    • Date: 06/02/20
    • Allister Heath, The Daily Telegraph

    The BBC is no longer a national broadcaster: it is at odds (and even at war) with a majority on social issues, is losing younger viewers to rival platforms and its grip on the commanding heights of British culture is steadily loosening. For decades, foreigners have been baffled by just how emotionally attached we are […]
