I refer, of course to LIGHTS ON – the vital protest being co-ordinated by my colleague Damian Thompson in response to the hideous annual exercise of eco-fascist triumphalism sometimes known as Earth Hour.
All Damian is asking us to do is that we screw up our courage, bump up our electricity bills and make damn sure we keep every single one of the lights in our home blazing between 8.30 and 9.30pm on Saturday March 27.
It will be a tough challenge, not least because the forces arrayed against us are so mightily powerful. Besides leading celebrity Alexandra Burke, leading blonde celebrity named after a fish Zoe Salmon, leading person called Paloma who is not called Picasso – Paloma Faith, and leading capital-lettered pop ensemble BLAKE, Earth Hour has managed to recruit the startlingly popular, well-known, and much-loved Lib Dem MP for Bath Don Foster. Yes. THE Don Foster.
A tough challenge, yes. But not an unsurmountable one. So remember everyone, even if it means interrupting your game of murder in the dark, or even rampant sex with a beautiful stranger who is too embarrassed to do it with the lights on, on March 27th you must put the interests of Western Civilisation before those of petty self-interest. Keep those lights ON. Because you know what will happen if you don’t, don’t you? ManBearPig will take over the world.
