Piers Morgan Is No Helpless Cancel Culture Victim

Piers

Lots of people are claiming to feel sorry for Piers Morgan, the professional loudmouth supposedly driven from his breakfast TV show for having incurred the wrath of Meghan Markle and her woke mob. But I’m not one of them, not least because of a strange incident involving a recent BBC News interview with Andrew Neil.

Neil was asked whether he’d consider giving Morgan a job at the new TV channel he is launching, GB News. He replied that he thought Morgan would be a “huge asset” and that he’d be delighted to talk to him “if he were up for it.”

This was then written up in the Sun newspaper, as though it were all just a random, spur-of-the-moment question and answer, with Neil having previously never given a moment’s thought to the issue.

BBC Axes Worst Comedy Show Evah, The Mash Report

The BBC has put its worst-ever ‘comedy’ show out of its misery. Finally, after four toe-curlingly unfunny seasons, The Mash Report has been axed.

You probably won’t have watched The Mash Report – almost no one did. That’s because its function (this goes for a lot of BBC contemporary comedy) was not to entertain or amuse, but to reinforce woke values.

Its presenter, Nish Kumar was widely celebrated as the unfunniest man in comedy. This reputation was clinched in December 2019 when he was booed off stage and had a bread roll chucked at him at a charity gig for the Lord’s Taverners.

Now Corona Masks Are Polluting Beaches and Coral Reefs. Will They be Banned?

Clearly this is a serious and growing problem.

Actor Laurence Fox is standing for election as Mayor of London. Quite what chance he’ll have against the brutal election machine of incumbent Sadiq Khan is hard to say. But even if Fox doesn’t succeed it will have been worth it just for this brilliant, inspirational campaign video.

Lockdown Equivalent Every Two Years to Save Planet, Claim ‘Experts’

lockdown

Carbon dioxide emissions need to fall by the equivalent of a lockdown every two years to save the planet, climate scientists have claimed.

The claim derives from a paper in the journal Nature Climate Change titled ‘Fossil CO2 emissions in the post-COVID-19 era’.

According to the abstract:

Five years after the adoption of the Paris Climate Agreement, growth in global CO2emissions has begun to falter. The pervasive disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic have radically altered the trajectory of global CO2 emissions. Contradictory effects of the post-COVID-19 investments in fossil fuel-based infrastructure and the recent strengthening of climate targets must be addressed with new policy choices to sustain a decline in global emissions in the post-COVID-19 era.

In short, the nations of the world will need to do much, much more if they are to meet the CO2emissions reduction targets set out by the Paris Climate Agreement. This is predicated on the idea that by keeping global industrial CO2emissions below a certain level, mankind will somehow tweak the global temperature control knob to such effect that planetary warming will be kept within a supposedly safe range of “1.5 °C to well below 2 °C.”

Rishi Sunak’s Cloud Cuckoo Land Budget Will Not Save the UK’s Doomed Economy

LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 03: Chancellor Of The Exchequer, Rishi Sunak stands with the Budget Box outside 11 Downing Street ahead of the Chancellor of the Exchequer's delivery of the budget on March 3, 2021 in London, England. The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, presents his second budget to the House of …

We had expected Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak to deliver the Magic Money Tree but what he has actually delivered is a Cloud Cuckoo Land budget. Really, you don’t need to be a Goldman-Sachs-trained economist to realise that the numbers just don’t add up and that this is a stop-gap, smoke-and-mirrors exercise to fool us into imagining that the UK economy is not on the brink of total disaster.

Sure, during his lonely speech, delivered to an almost empty chamber, Sunak dropped some heavy hints that all was not well.

Sunak said: “It is going to be the work of many governments over many decades to [pay the money borrowed] back”, and just a one per cent increase in interest rates and inflation now would increase the cost of the government’s debts by £25 billion at a stroke.

World (Mostly) Puts Growth Before Climate as CO2 Emissions Soar Again

Global industrial carbon dioxide emissions in 2020 suffered their biggest drop since the Second World War but then bounced back in the final month, according to the latest data from the International Energy Agency.

This ought to be good news — a sign of the global economy’s resilience despite the various Covid clampdowns which caused CO2 emissions in the U.S. and the EU to plummet in March, April and May 2020 by 10 per cent. Emissions from energy fell by about two billion metric tons, a plunge which the IEA’s authors say is ‘without precedent in human history’ and is the rough equivalent of ‘removing all of the European Union’s emissions from the global total’.

But the IEA is spinning it as a bad thing: a sign that we are not doing enough to cut our ‘carbon’ emissions. Note, for example, the tone of this tweet from the IEA’s Executive Director Fatih Birol.
