There is an old saying about keeping your mouth shut, and letting everyone think you are a fool, instead of speaking and confirming what everyone thought in the first place.
So called celebrities have an embarrassing habit of developing foot and mouth disease when talking about the Climate Change scam, until now Danny Glover has probably made the most stupid comment yet, when he blamed the Haiti earthquake on Global Warming.
This week Chris Evans and former BBC News Reader Moria Stewart inserted their feet firmly in their mouths on Evans Radio 2 Show broadcast on January 26th for all scientists and their assistants.
Evans has firm a grasp of the AGW scam, likening it to “lighting a fire in your living room“, while Stewart says “they’re very well meaning and giving us findings…“, about the junk science; but it’s all OK because they mean well.

As a nation, I believe that on the whole, we British are a caring nation.
I also believe that the Government have a responsibility to the parents and carers of disabled people to provide these people with the support that is needed for them to have a happy and fulfilled life.
I believe that the Government are of this mind too. I do not believe that the Government are making it their goal to strip genuinely disabled people of the means by which they support themselves or have care given. Read the rest of this entry
“The idea of a tax on the ownership of a television belongs in the 1950s. Why not tax people for owning a washing machine to fund the manufacture of Persil?”,
James MacTaggart Memorial Lecture, Aug 24th, 2007.
So says one of the BBC’s leading political commentators. The profligate waste, huge salaries paid to executives and the ridiculous sums of money paid to non talents like Jonathan Ross and Russel Brand beggar belief. So it’s not surprising that in these time of cuts the BBC and the
televison tax licence fee are under scrutiny again. Read the rest of this entry
The BBC, imposed on us by the Television Tax, and pro Labour and Climate Change by inclination, impartiality went out of the window decades ago.
Last year we discovered that the BBC was supportive of Climate Change because some numpty had invested significant amounts of their pension fund in Al Gore’s Green Industries scam.
Now they are at it again supporting Labour and trying to cause divisions in the Conservative Party reports Tim Montgomerie:
Earlier today the Today programme led on a report that the Tory leader of Kent County Council, Paul Carter, disagreed with Michael Gove’s education policy. Michael Gove was interviewed on Today and gave a combative response. He insisted that Cllr Carter was “100% supportive of our proposals“.
We have no choice in paying for the BBC, those that do not pay the Television Tax either get fined or go to prison.
The time to scrap the BBC and the outdated Televison Tax is now, if the BBC cannot or will not be truly impartial then it cannot be tax payer funded.

This story was in yesterday’s Telegraph and also on Conservative Home, at the BBC there is deathly silence.
It’s emerged that a very senior Shadow Cabinet member once said that sexually explicit photographs or films of children should be legalised – unless there was evidence that the child had been harmed.
And at the time (the late 1970s), the spokesman was a senior figure in a libertarian group that wanted the age of consent lowered to 14, and incest decriminalised.
Furthermore, paedophile organisations were affiliated to the group – which said that “childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in, with an adult result in no identifiable damage”.
The story did indeed break yesterday. (The Daily Telegraph had it.) But –
* The politician in question wasn’t a Shadow Cabinet Minister. It was no less senior a Cabinet Minister than Harriet Harman, Leader of the Commons and prospective Labour leadership candidate.
* The organisation wasn’t a libertarian group. It was that establishment body, the National Council for Civil Liberties.
* And although Tim Loughton, our Shadow Children’s Minister, judged our reaction to the story well, there was – guess what? – little BBC reaction, no sign of a right-wing media ring-round, no reaction from the conservative commentariat: no sense of a story gaining momentum. I can’t find anything significant on it in today’s media.
My point isn’t that Harriet Harman wants to ease the legal restraints on paedophile activity. (It should go without saying that she doesn’t.) Nor is it that her views during the late 1970s are worth the kind of media rampage that I sketch out above It’s simply this.
Another ghost come back to haunt Labour like Gordon Brown’s go go dancing as a job for women.
