Are you starving?

What should worry all of us more than the issue of whether so-called climate change is anthropogenic is the unintended consequences of this proposition on world food production.

Thanks partly to the Gore-induced panic, cereal production for human consumption (via animal feeds as well) is being switched to biofuel production. This is at a time when China and other rapidly developing countries are soaking up more and more of the world's wheat, meat and dairy products - and paying top dollar too - while we too are reducing our staple food output.

Time for Great Britain to stop thinking we can affect global changes in weather conditions by any kind of unilateral action and just concentrate on protecting our population's needs for the future.

We are used to relatively cheap food. The shock of 50% or 70% increases in our household food bills in the next few years will be worse than the rises in all the other taxes that Brown has imposed on us for the last 10 years.

Or is he going to nationalise Tesco as well as Northern Rock?

A Big Pot of Piss?

I thought I had given up this blogging stuff but I had this wonderful image come to mind when I was watching BBC News 24's newspaper review a few minutes ago. Admittedly, it was under the influence of two thirds of a very pleasant and cheap bottle of Californian red wine - cheers Gollum! (£3.99 from Tesco.)
One of the reviewers commented on Brown's attempt to create a government of all the talons (sic) and made the predictable joke about Mrs T going to tea at No. 10. He then suggested that the arch-manipulator, rather than trying to create a big tent was putting up a very large marquee following the report that Lord Owen (of Gang of Four fame back in the '80s) was considering throwing in his lot with the esteemed Scot.
On the well-established basis that it is better to have people pissing into the tent rather than pissing out, my mind turned to the practicalities of dealing with the much larger amounts of urine now pouring into Gordon's marquee. After all, it's bound to spray all over the place - ask my wife - and also gets into places you wouldn't expect! How would you mop it up? How could you make sure your marquee was clean and hygienic?
Gordon has the solution: forget the "Nanny State" - we are now in the "Super Nappy State" that can absorb all those little spillages. Just piss in towards Gordon and he will soak it up.
