Government By Fear And Panic

KEYWORDS: climate change, global warming, catastrophe, fear and panic, gordon brown, copenhagen, politics

Gordon Brown has been using the tactics of government by fear and panic to try to swing public opinion behind the treaty he will propose at the big expensive jolly for world leaders in a foreign city XXX climate summit in Copenhagen. At this jolly old booze up the great and good will get together and decide how to save the planet from the threat posed by global warming. We do not know what proposals Gordon's agenda will put forward but you can bet it will not include a pledge by world leaders to desist from flying off round the world to attend jollies every few weeks. A speech Mr. Brown gave over the weekend might give us a few clues though. He told his audience if the world does not back the Copenhagen Treaty millions of people will die as governments shoot dissenters from flood, famine, plague, killer heatwaves, drought, late pizza deliveries as all sorts of catastrophes take their toll. Nobody will be immune, even politicians will be likely to choke to death when saying "anthropogenic" instead of "man made". Boggart Blog wants to ask you Mr. Brown, these natural disasters - will they be in any way similar to the Swine Flu pandemic that was going to have wiped out 450% of the human population by now unless we all trooped off to get our vaccine shot? Or has the pandemic put itself on hold because the vaccine was not ready in time? Or is it like the Bird Flu epidemic a few years ago that was going to wipe us out and in the end here in Britain killed one rather elderly sea bird? And what about the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s. Remember back they were telling us the virus would be carried in air by 1990 and we would be able to catch HIV just by looking at a bare naked lady or even a lady in her underwear unless we wore a decontamination suit? Will your predicted catastrophes of your be like any of those Mr. Brown? And what about the killer heatwaves? Will they be like the Barbecue Summer we were promised this year, or the Barbecue Autumn we were supposed to get last week? I sat in the garden every day with my sausages and burgers and a cool box full of tinnies, I wore my hat with corks round the brim and I froze my bollocks off. The trouble with trying to control people through fear and panic you see Gordon is it will work very well once, not quite so well the next time and the third time will just attract scepticism. Your government, Gordon, tries the fear and panic stratagem about three times a week. It is any wonder nobody ever believes a word you say.

Ending the Ownership of Money

How Ironic That Humourless Warmageddonists Will Not See The Irony
I've lost count of how many times this blog has highlighted the extraordinary consistency with which politicians and scientists working in concert manage to achieve the exact opposite of what they are aiming for.

America and UK Lead the World in Climate Scepticism Several times now it has looked as if the climate chance scare was over as the enthusiasm of climate scitentists for changing real world data to fit in with the predictions of their mathematical models has been exposed. But as the scare was never about the environment, but was a scam to redistribute wealth from rich to poor countries, the politicians are throwing their propaganda budgets behind it again.

Sham Marriages To Beat Immigration Laws Are Out Of Control
With main immigration news on being dominated by the Mediterranean boat people crisis and the masses at Calais hoping to stow away in a freight container, we forget that another way of getting somebody into the country is the sham marriage. Numbers involved may be small, but it is another indication of our governments' failure to address the immigration problem.
