David Bellamy is dead — and if his name doesn’t mean much to you that is largely the fault of the disgusting BBC.
For a decade or so from the ’70s onwards, botanist and environmentalist Bellamy was just about the biggest nature star on British TV, only equalled in celebrity by his fellow David, David Attenborough.
In some respects, Bellamy was the more famous and better-loved character, especially when comedian Lenny Henry spoofed him as a bearded eccentric with the catchphrase “gwapple me gwapenuts”.
(Bellamy was easy to impersonate because he pronounced his ‘r’s as ‘w’s – a condition known as ‘rhotacism’).
Attenborough specialised in wildlife; Bellamy in plants; both were superstars, even back in the 1970s; both were well on their way to becoming national treasures.
But only one of them did. What happened to Bellamy?
Simple. Bellamy was an early victim of what is now known as cancel culture.

Yes, you’ve got to hand it to what’s left of Time magazine: it hasn’t lost its unerring ability to put its finger on the pulse of the zeitgeist, invariably managing to name a Person of the Year who sums up perfectly the madness of the age.
In the 1930s, it was the twin evils of Nazism and Soviet Communism.
In the 1970s, it was militant Islam.
Today, it’s Environmentalism.
That screeching noise you can hear, by the way, is the sound of a gazillion greenies squawking about how unfair it is to pick on a 16-year old child whose only crime is to want to make the world a better place:
In less than 36 hours from now Britain will either be in the hands of an amiable, japesome, patriotic blond pretend-buffoon Conservative who wants to take Britain out of the EU, boost spending on the police and the military, lower taxes and control immigration…
…Or an unreconstructed anti-Semitic, terrorist-supporting Marxist leading a gang of viciously intolerant hard-left boot boys who will crush all dissent, lay waste to the land with bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco-crucifixes, seize private property, drive entrepreneurs into tax exile, and reduce the world’s fifth-largest economy to near-Venezuelan levels of crony-Communist decay, corruption and penury.
That’s what makes this Britain’s Flight 93 Election: unless conservatives can storm the cockpit and grab hold of the controls from the leftist suicide merchants, then the whole country is going to crash and burn.
A few years back, in the days before it became purely a left-wing propaganda organisation, the BBC ran a documentary series called The Nazis: A Warning From History.
But who needs that now when we have a much more immediate example of what happens when vicious, totalitarian thugs try to take over a relatively civilised liberal polity?
I’m talking, of course, about the latest antics of Jeremy Corbyn’s hard-left Labour boot boys.
Yesterday Labour orchestrated a characteristically dodgy stunt in which Conservative Health Secretary Matt Hancock was mobbed by a crowd of perhaps 100 Labour activists who’d been taxied in — at Labour’s expense — to form a flash protest group at Leeds Hospital.
The entirety of Britain’s political class, left and right, has surrendered to the Green Blob.
Here is how the various parties responded to a question from the Guardian: ‘Is the climate crisis the biggest issue the UK faces as a nation?’
Conservatives: Yes, it is one of the biggest issues facing the world. Thanks to the efforts of successive governments, the UK has cut carbon emissions by more than any similar developed country. We have also already doubled our support for developing nations to tackle climate change.
Greens: Absolutely. The science is clear: it is the biggest threat facing the UK and the world.
Labour: Yes and this election is our last chance to tackle it. We’re already off course to meet our targets and radical and urgent action over the next five years is essential.
Liberal Democrats: Yes, a Liberal Democrat government would solve Brexit on day one, so climate change would be the biggest issue.
SNP: Scotland – like the rest of the world – faces a climate emergency. We have a moral responsibility to tackle climate change and will lead the way in showing how our society can transition to net zero.
As you see, there is not a single mainstream party left in Britain that is prepared to stand up to eco-fascism.
(Madrid, Spain) — President Trump understands that climate change is “mostly hype” but is being held back from taking tougher action against the scam by his own advisors who fear it might cost him votes, his ex-science advisor Dr William Happer says.
Dr Happer, Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor of Physics, Emeritus, at Princeton University and — till September this year — senior director at the National Security Council’s Office for Emerging Technology, was speaking in Madrid, Spain. He was attending a conference staged by the Heartland Institute, held to coincide with the United Nations COP25 climate summit. (The full livestream can be viewed here)
(Madrid, Spain) — President Trump’s former Science Advisor, Dr William Happer, has spoken out against the global warming scare.
“It’s a scam,” he says.
Happer, Professor of Physics Emeritus at Princeton University and, till September this year, the science advisor on the Trump Administration’s National Security Council, was speaking to Breitbart News in Madrid, Spain, at a conference staged by the Heartland Institute.
Boris Johnson has spent this election treating Donald Trump’s friendly overtures with about as much enthusiasm as Prince Andrew fending off a cheery call from his old mate Jeffrey Epstein.
Big mistake. Boris has a lot to learn from his would-be friend and ally Donald, not least in the way Trump handles the media.
Trump understands that the MSM is almost entirely toxic, hostile and counterproductive — and that therefore the best way to deal with it is to bypass it altogether, apart from occasionally goading it, usually via his personal Twitter account.
Perhaps after his experiences today with Channel 4 News, Boris might be persuaded to move in a more Trumpian direction.
MADRID, Spain — Meet the Anti -Greta. Her name is Naomi Seibt, she’s 19 years old, but unlike some teenage activists we could mention she is most definitely not welcome at the UN’s COP25 climate conference. That’s because she believes the global warming scare is a massive hoax.
MADRID, Spain — The most important thing – indeed the only thing – you need to know about the U.N.’s latest climate circus, COP25, is that it was originally going to be staged in Santiago, Chile.
Why is this fact so important? Because the reason COP25 is no longer being held in Chile is because the green policies introduced by the country’s president Sebastián Piñera have proved so disastrous and unpopular that Chile is in flames.
