Vegetarians and vegans have been getting very uppity of late. One reason for this is that some idiot told them they hold the key to saving the world.

According to the (rampantly vego-loon) Humane Society “your diet could save the planet”.

According to Yvo de Boer, the former head of the UN climate agency, “the best solution would be for us all to become vegetarian.”

And according to George Monbiot in the Guardian: “The best way to save the planet? Drop meat and dairy”.

All this nonsense has gone to the grass-eaters’ nutritionally-challenged heads.

Would you pay an Irish environmental lawyer £232,000 a year to lobby to the government to raise your taxes and to make it harder to do business if he told you it was for the “public good”?

Well if you’re a UK taxpayer you already do.

His name is James Thornton and he heads a charity called Client Earth, which the UK government currently funds to the tune of nearly £1 million a year via the Department for International Development.

The problem is, as Paul Homewood notes, Client Earth is the Green Blob with bells on.

Essentially, it’s an outfit of environmental lawyers who use the courts system to obstruct industrial progress in the name of saving the planet.

One of their areas of speciality is, you guessed it, ‘climate change.’

200 Australian Professors Reject Western Civilisation

Two hundred professors at the University of Sydney, Australia, have signed an open letter urging the rejection of a proposed course on ‘Western Civilisation’. They claim the subject is ‘chauvinistic’, a ‘tool of European supremacism’ and that it would ‘lend credibility’ to ‘sexist, racist and Islamophobic politics’.
Salvatore Babones, one of the Sydney University academics opposing the anti-Western-Civilisation campaign, writes:

When the Australian healthcare entrepreneur Paul Ramsay passed away in 2014, he dedicated a portion of his estate to helping students “explore how our civilisation had grappled with life’s biggest issues and history’s greatest challenges”. Thus was born the Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation. And thus was born a great education debate. The Ramsay Centre has been trying all year to get one of Australia’s premier universities to offer a bespoke degree in Western Civilisation. The idea is to offer generous scholarships to attract some of Australia’s most talented students to read the classics of Western civilisation in small seminars of six to eight students. What’s not to like?

Plenty, if you ask the professors at the University of Sydney. Two hundred of them have signed an open letter calling the proposed program “chauvinistic” and a tool of “European supremacism”. A smaller group went even further, warning in promotional material for a public protest meeting that a deal with the Ramsay Centre would “lend credibility” to “sexist, racist and Islamophobic politics”.

The Ramsay Centre is now the biggest hot potato in Australian higher education. Earlier this year, the ANU pulled the plug on Ramsay Centre negotiations in order to “protect its academic freedom”, in the words of vice chancellor Brian Schmidt. The ANU’s chancellor Gareth Evans went even further, warning other universities to check “the teeth of this particular gift horse”. It’s never been so hard to give money away. The VC doth protest too much?

David Attenborough to Stop Crying Wolf; Admits Eco-Hysteria a ‘Real Turn-Off’

Sir David Attenborough has decided to ditch the finger-wagging and the doom-mongering from his next wildlife TV documentary series, Dynasties. Viewers, he has finally realised, find it a turn off.

Attenborough, 92, told the Observer (sister newspaper of the Guardian):

“We do have a problem. Every time the bell rings, every time that image [of a threatened animal] comes up, do you say ‘remember, they are in danger’? How often do you say this without becoming a real turn-off? It would be irresponsible to ignore it, but equally I believe we have a responsibility to make programmes that look at all the rest of the aspects and not just this one.”

This will come as a relief to the many viewers who respect Attenborough as the pre-eminent TV naturalist but are bothered by the relentless green propaganda.

If you’ve ever wondered why British politics is in such a mess look no further than a leaked report into Civil Service skullduggery during the Windrush scandal.

It shows how early in 2018 former Home Secretary Amber Rudd was made inadvertently to lie about Britain’s immigration policy because her scheming civil servants had withheld the truth from her.

This was in a period of shocking news stories about mostly elderly West-Indian-born immigrants who’d been living legally and contentedly in Britain for decades – only to find themselves threatened with deportation (or in some cases, actually deported) by an increasingly draconian Home Office.
