Brexit: Mark Carney can **** right off back to Canada

George Osborne has decided to stake his political future on Britain voting to remain a member of the European Union.

So naturally, his Dobby the Maple Leaf House Elf over at the Bank of England felt obliged to serve his master yesterday by declaring – entirely independently, of course, and without prejudice – that if Britain were to vote for Brexit then the sky will fall in, Ringwraiths will stalk the land, men will say openly that Christ and His saints slept and, worst of all, property prices will fall by approximately 318 per cent.

Because maple leaf Dobby is speaking with the authority of his position of Governor of the Bank of England, a lot of people will go: “Well he must know what he’s talking about. He’s Governor of the Bank of England, innit?”

You could make the same specious argument about Goldman Sachs, Christine Lagarde, Jean-Claude Juncker, President Obama, Prime Minister David Cameron, the Confederation of British Industry, the European Commission…

Like Carney, they’re all for the European Union because they’re all part of the Establishment elite in whose interests it is run. As Martin Durkin argues cogently in the must-see Brexit the Movie – watch it here – that’s what the forthcoming EU referendum is really about: the battle between a remote, anti-democratic elite and us the people.

RRS Sir David Attenborough Is a Terrible Name For a Ship

Boaty McBoatface was the name the public overwhelmingly voted for after the decision was thrown open to a competition. But as we know, Boaty McBoatface was the name they were denied by Science Minister Jo Johnson – who decided it was too silly for anything but a poxy midget submarine. The big ship, meanwhile, is going to be given a name that barely anyone wanted or asked for: RRS Sir David Attenborough.

Johnson is an ass. And a po-faced ass at that.

There are lots of reasons why he was quite wrong to diverge from the public’s preferred name. Here are some of them.

Johnsons are supposed to be funny

Even their name is a bit rude, sounding like a euphemism for the membrum virile, as Jo’s Classicist brother Boris would probably call it. Boris, sister Rachel and Dad Stanley understand it, even if Jo does not: the job of Johnsons is to add to the gaiety of nations not act like boring grown-ups with pokers up their arses. Jo’s decision was a betrayal of everything his family stand for.

It is unlucky to give ships male names

This is a fact. We once had a boat named John Peel. It sank. After that we gave our boats girls’ names, as is proper. Short of naming a boat RMS Titanic II, it’s hard to think of a better invitation to collision with an iceberg than calling your Arctic research vessel after a man.

Democracy, anyone?

Yet again the remote elite demonstrates its utter contempt for the masses by giving them the illusion of democratic choice – a free vote on the name of a ship which, after all, they have paid for out of their tax money – only to snatch it away from them when they make the “wrong” decision. This is just how the European Union conducts its referendums – so perhaps we shouldn’t be at all surprised that, unlike his big brother Boris, Jo Johnson is very much a “Remain” man.

On at least two occasions, he has prostituted his ministerial prestige to argue that Britain should remain shackled to the EU corpse – alleging that it would threaten Britain’s financial sector  and that it would damage UK science. Neither claim bears the slightest scrutiny. Tosser.

Boaty McBoatface was the perfect Wankers’ Litmus Test

No seriously. I checked on Twitter. When Boaty McBoatface won the competition, you could scarcely move for tweets from pompous, self-righteous gits telling anyone who’d listen how disgusted they were that so frivolous a name had been picked, and what did this tell us about the state of modern Britain that a vessel conducting research so magisterially important could be treated so lightly by the common herd, etc. And every one of them was a wanker.

Cameron’s Latest Desperate Threat: Vote Remain or Get World War III

But they won’t last long for their cute little eyes will already have been burned out by the nuclear fireball that flattened every house in the city and turned every human – kids especially: the most promising, pretty and best-behaved ones will have died first, probably, weeping for their lost future – into a greasy pile of blackened bones which smelt very briefly of roast pork but now smells like the worst word in the history of lexicography… Brexit!

Or so Prime Minister David Cameron has been telling the world today in his latest escalation of Project Fear.

“Can we be so sure peace and stability on our continent are assured beyond any shadow of doubt? Is that a risk worth taking? I would never be so rash to make that assumption… What happens in our neighbourhood matters to Britain. That was true in 1914, 1940, 1989…. and it is true in 2016.”

With the shameless chutzpah and disingenuousness we’ve come to expect from the Remain camp, Cameron’s Foreign Secretary then went on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme to explain why Cameron’s speech certainly wasn’t saying anything as crass and literal as “if you vote for Brexit you’ll end up with war.”

Oh certainly not.

That’ll be why, to emphasise that this wasn’t remotely what he meant, Cameron invoked “serried rows of white headstones in lovingly tended Commonwealth war cemeteries”, “Blenheim. Trafalgar. Waterloo. Our country’s heroism in the Great War”, and Winston Churchill.

Nope. No veiled war references there then. No wrapping himself in the Union flag and English history in order to make the ludicrous suggestion that a vote for continued membership of the growing European superstate is a vote for patriotism, courage and tradition.

When It’s OK For Murderous Terrorists to Use the N Word: The Guardian Explains…

a) dragging a mother-of-ten kicking and screaming from her home in front of her kids, brutally interrogating her, shooting her in the back of the head and then burying her in an unmarked grave?

or

b) using the “N” word in a tweet?

Well the answer if you’re an enlightened leftist is b) obviously. We know this from a cracking article in today’s Guardian by Gary Younge called Racism Is A System Of Oppression, Not A Series Of Bloopers. Younge, being black, has taken on himself to adjudicate on what he calls an “off-colour” tweet by the murderous ex-terrorist Gerry Adams, which made use of the “N” word.

Though he has consistently denied it, it is an open secret that Gerry Adams – now president of Sinn Fein – was a senior commander of the IRA during the Troubles in Ireland and according to several former IRA members has much blood on his hands. There are photographs of him acting as pallbearer at IRA funerals; he was described by former IRA commander Brendan Hughes as a “major, major player in the war”; and among his many alleged victims is Jean McConville, the mother murdered in 1972 – according to at least two witnesses on Adams’s orders – because she was mistakenly believed to be a collaborator.

You might think that, given a track record like that, the odd use of an offensive racial epithet on social media was the least of Adams’s image problems.

Greenmail: How 13 Lords of Eco Lunacy Tried to Gag The Times

So runs the threat in a menacing private letter to the Times‘s editor signed by no fewer than 13 members of Britain’s House of Lords, including the Bishop of London and the former Astronomer Royal.

Even by alarmist standards, its tone of shrill petulance, bullying intolerance and aggrieved self-righteousness is quite deliciously excruciating.

As Editor, you are of course entitled to take whatever editorial line you feel is appropriate. Are you aware, however, that you may seriously be compromising The Times‘s reputation by pursuing a line that cleaves so tightly to a particular, and which is based on such flimsy evidence?

The letter bears the hallmarks of Richard Black, formerly a BBC Environmental correspondent, who now runs a well-funded climate lobby group with links to the European Union. Many of the letter’s signatories are also patrons of his green propaganda non-profit, among them Lord Chartres (the Bishop of London), Lord Rees (formerly the Astronomer Royal), Lord Puttnam (a film producer) and Lord Oxburgh (former chairman of the House of Lords Science and Technology committee).

It is also signed by Lord Krebs (former chairman of the Food Standards Agency) and Lord Stern (the accountant behind the multiply discredited Stern Report).

What’s extraordinary about the letter is the way it makes so much fuss about so very little. The Times once ran an editorial (about the Rolling Stones drug bust in the Sixties) titled “Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?” This is exactly what Black and his pliant menagerie of peers are doing here.

The letter accuses the Times of having become a “laughing stock”, and of “systematically [undermining] the credibility of climate science”, and of running “substandard news stories and opinion pieces.”

But when you examine the articles these lords claim to have found so outrageously offensive, you realise that they are perfectly accurate and sensible pieces of reportage.

WATCH: Emma Thompson Stages Eco Protest; Sprayed with Manure by Irate Farmer

Once feted as a great actress, director and screenwriter for films including Nanny McPhee, Harry Potter and her Oscar-winning adaptation of Sense and Sensibility, Thompson has since become better known for her environmental activism – famed for such outrageous stunts as her bold decision to name her daughter Gaia (after the Earth Goddess).

On this occasion, Thompson had gone to a field in Lancashire to stage a protest with her sister Sophie on behalf of Greenpeace. The two women dressed in aprons and baked cakes – one depicting a wind turbine, the other a “solar lemon cake”.

Green Survey: Delingpole at the Epicentre of Denialist Evil

In the former category, it’s no surprise that tragic bear-rape victim and private-jet-setting eco-crusader Leo DiCaprio comes top of the list.

The Greens Are Losing the Culture Wars. Good.

All right, so Michael Crichton got there first with State of Fear (2005) but that movie would certainly never have slipped under the net if it hadn’t had the creator of Jurassic Park‘s name attached. It’s only in the last couple of years that screenwriters have started to recognise what a good idea it is to choose environmentalists as your bad guys: pure evil draped in cuddly, fluffy sanctimoniousness is drama gold.

See, for example, Kingsman (2014) which cast Samuel L Jackson as an insane Malthusian bent on wiping out most of the human race for the good of the planet; and also Utopia (2013), the genius, black as your hat thriller (insanely nixed after its second series by Channel 4) about a similar “the Earth has a cancer; the cancer is man” type conspiracy.

Now there’s a Nordic Noir TV series I strongly recommend you watch – just out on DVD – called Follow the Money. The Guardian hated it – which is a recommendation in itself. But what’s even better is the reason why I suspect the Guardian hated it: it couldn’t quite get its head around the fact that the bad guys aren’t in Big Oil or the Military Industrial Complex or some faceless corporation. Instead, the baddies work for a renewable energy company with the caring, sharing name Energreen.

Icegate: Now NSIDC Caught Tampering with Climate Records

You’ve read about how NOAA overestimated US warming by 50 percent.

Now it’s NSIDC’s turn to be caught red-handed fiddling the data and cooking the books.

NSIDC – National Snow and Ice Data Center – is the US government agency which provides the official statistics on such matters as sea ice coverage in the Arctic.

Naturally its research is of paramount importance to the climate alarmists’ narrative that man-made global warming is causing the polar ice caps to melt. At least it was until those ice caps refused to play ball…

Where the alarmists have for years been doomily predicting ice free summers in the Arctic –  according to Al Gore in 2007, 2008 and 2009 it would be gone by 2013 – the truth is that multi-year ice has been staging a recovery since 2009.

age_coverage_time_series_83_15_w_labels2

So what do you do if reality doesn’t suit your narrative? Simple. If you’re NSIDC (and NASA and NOAA…) you just change reality.

NSIDC’s latest attempt to breathe new life into the corpse of the alarmist narrative comprised a press release a few weeks ago claiming that 5+ year old sea ice is at its smallest level on record. To prove it, they’ve produced a new chart that looks like this.

2016-04-22061634

But according to Steven Goddard of the Real Science website this claim needs to be taken with a huge pinch of salt.

Note how, to confuse matters, NSIDC have upended their chart so that 5+ year ice instead of being at the bottom is now at the top. Far worse, though, they’ve gone and deleted all the old style maps from their archive.

At least they thought they had.
