Global warming?

This country has just elected its first Green MP. One of those who believe we must all manage with no gas or electricity in order to stop the planet warming up.

It is the 10th of May, 10 pm. Four days after the Green MP was elected.

It is snowing outside.

See what you did, Green voters? You annoyed God. Now we're all in trouble.

Next time, think before you vote.

Ah yes, it's snowing on you evil Scots as punishment for not voting Green. Down in Brighton, it's a balmy 18 degrees outside.

If it's any comfort, it's not snowing in Rome. It's a very British looking grey sky and raining though.

BTW They've just discovered plants cause global warming. Massive road building scheme NOW, make the chavs work for their benefits

I don't care what you say, I'd still rather invest in a decommissioned ex-military diesel-electric submarine than get a mortgage on a concrete shoebox any day!

It's a bit similar to the Gore Effect - when something significant happens in the Green world, nature responds!

When the Climate Change Act was passed in Parliament, it snowed. At the end of the Copenhagen conference, there were blizzards.

If by some fluke the Green Party were elected to power, we could expect the next Ice Age to begin immediately!

I thought every rational person had long since decided that the religion of the Green God and all the other warble gloaming bollocks was just another Righteous tax scam?

See - it worked. They managed to turn down the planet's thermostat just by thinking about all those lovely global cooling initiatives. Clever, aren't they!

5 degrees C (now 11:11pm) in Rigby Town, and our winter gas bill has dropped onto the mat - scary numbers.

Burn them. Burn them all.

I can only imagine that they laced the water supply with LSD just before the election.

Perhaps they set up huge mirrors to heat Brighton Pavilion to tropical temperatures.

Still snowing here. I doubt it'll build up but it's the latest snow I can remember seeing. Beats the previous record of hail on May 1st by well over a week.

Chuckles said...

It snows on the just and the only just...

I think it's because the big silver dragons are not flying through the sky up there, keeping the snow away with their fire breathing?

With all due respect to John Pickworth, is it any coincidence that the Greens got their first MP from the Gay capital of the UK?

JuliaM said...

Caroline Green has taken over Al Gore's mantle as Snow Queen, then..? ;)

Stewart Cowan said...

This was a disastrous result. It serves to instil the belief that the Greens can now win seats at Westmonster. There could be more. And more.

................Colosseum....................

After Lunch-

Green Party Nazis will first be paraded before the baying,bloodthirsty mob dressed as Swampy to the sound of Giacomo Puccini`s 'Turandot'

Lumps of polished Welsh coal,mined by 12 year old hood rats will be provided for throwing.

In a re enactment of deforestation large Scotsmen dressed as green giants will toss tree trunks at the Greenies,for every direct hit the tosser will be awarded a jar of pickled sea horses.

When the giants are exhausted any Green Party Nazis left alive will have their arms and legs tied to wild Shetland ponies with fire crackers tied to their tails,afterwards the horses are to be sacrificed to Odin and barbequed , the remains of the Greenies will be fed to the lions.

I think Brighton & Hove (or Sodom & Gomorrah) has been a land of the lotus eaters for a little longer than that, old bean... it's full of bummers, new agers, and sociology grantuates, don't you know.

Leg-iron said...

Mark - we already have some Green MSP's here. They bribed their way in by talking about independence and not mentioning how cold it's going to get up here when the power goes off, or becomes unaffordable unless you're on expenses.

Leg-iron said...

Gendeau - it's hail today. I've never seen white-covered rhubarb leaves before.

Leg-iron said...

Lutney - several Libertarians have put forward the idea of a floating independent 'country' out at sea. A submarine version would be even better.

Leg-iron said...

Alex - you're right, you know. It's the Greens that are causing this terrible weather by constantly talking about it.

Leg-iron said...

John P - Burn the Greens? it might come to that, when nobody can afford heating oil any more. We can render them down to produce an oil.

Leg-iron said...

JuliaM - Snow queen - excellent.

Leg-iron said...

Stewart - she still has to get re-elected in the next one. If she's part of that Cabal of Losers, well, not even dopeheads will approve.

Leg-iron said...

Stan - Well, we are going to be left with a massive Olympic stadium and nothing much to do with it. Might as well put it to good use.

An interesting line of argument?

Having given it some thought, I'm not so sure this is the reason though. Both Blackpool and Manchester would lay claim, and often do, that they are the centres of the gay universe and neither places are particularly green. Although it has to be said they are left leaning.

Myself, a member of the soap dropping and curtain choosing fraternity, couldn't be less green if by some quirk of physics the colours blue and yellow suddenly ceased to exist.

To be honest I think that because 'some' in (and outside) the almost mythical gay community perceive themselves to be a minority they are lumped in with the other deserving causes and become associated with the left. However, its been my experience that many gay men are relatively right-wing even if they don't identify themselves as such.

No, given Brighton's large number of shops selling tat like aromatic candles, massage oils and tofu, I think they're just daft for the greenie stuff down there.

Lets hope they are just as keen when Brighton and Hove is designated as a National Rain Forest then filled with poisonous snakes, spiders and lizards... and bearded swampies that will take your arms off if they catch the slightest whiff of mushroom on you.

Lutney Chocker,

You could buy a submarine or better still, a disused sea fort - Sealand.

Or maybe just buy a few acres and declare independence?

Lutney Chocker said...

Yes I know about the SeaLand bollocks... it doesn't work because ultimately you need to pay someone to protect you from attack (enter State).
Sitting on a safe yacht or ax avoidance cruiseship/hotel is only an option for the rich (or qualified seafarers ;) ).

Sub is the answer, but alas, my Noah's ark, only has room for svelte young ladies aged 18-36, through which I may repopulate the Earth ...glug ...glug ...glug
