True. But they will all have been leave voters.

According to Heseltine, who is clearly one of the undead.

Marc Almond on Emma Thompson…

“Emma Thompson has arrived in her gas guzzling carbon footprint stomping jet to serve Vegan food from the boat parked on Oxford Circus while the Yoga classes are taking place on Waterloo Bridge! Haha really? Couldn’t make this stuff up.”

I know a story about Marc Almond.

Not the one involving a stomach pump by any chance, thats an old one...

And, as you presumably know, not a true one.

The same story was applied to women of easy virtue for years before it became attached to Mark.

The hypocrisy is no more than these massive companies, that maintain buying their latest "green" consumer product will save the planet. I hear the ching of tills, and a certain self proclaimed holiness. There's something very wrong with all this.

Don't we all here save the planet, or our wallets, by not buying tat?

I believe someone once told a parable about these sort of pointless ostentatious displays of piety.

If the end really is at hand then they ought to repenting not lecturing everyone else.

Extinction Rebellion kids.

When placing blame and pointing fingers remember this.

It was our generation that introduced recycling to keep up with the demand of consumption from your generation.

When we were kids the only fast food was at the local chippie and it came wrapped in newspaper not in a polystyrene case.

Our energy drink was lucozade and it came in a glass bottle that we used to take back to the shop to recycle.

We walked or biked to school or work and didn't ask mum or dad to drive us because it was raining and we didn't want to get wet for the 1000 yards to the school gate.

We had hand-me down clothes and used a pay phone if we needed to make a call.

We remember power cuts on a regular basis and played board games or read by candlelight.

Our homes had single glazed windows that would ice up in winter and we shared our bedrooms that were so cold you could see your breath with our brothers or sisters. We didn't have central heating.

Have you ever had to use someone else's bath water after they had finished? We have!

We didn't have TVs in our bedrooms left on standby 24hrs a day or mobile devices that have to be charged if the battery drops below 80%.

Our holidays were in the UK in tents and not in Ibiza and we didn't get there by plane!

It is you that is the mass consumer that demand the latest phones, fashion, sunny holidays, fast food and transportation

So point the finger of blame at yourselves you self indulgent, deluded, needy, greedy, ignorant, unapologetic, rude, selfish generation.

But you never look in the mirror and look at yourselves.

I completely agree. That's why I think these protests are completely misdirected.

If they used even a modicum of intelligence, they'd be up in arms at the companies that import colossal amounts of barely serviceable, cheap Chinese shit. Personally I'd be protesting outside of B&Q and the large toystores that punt this tat by the tonne rather than cluttering up public areas used by people who'd rather be buying stuff that didn't break after a week.

Most people feel mugged off by the fact that companies have the nerve to charge top dollar for goods that have a working life of a week. To have some manky hippy berate you for being an involuntary member of this cycle of shit is rubbing salt into the wounds and does the cause no favours IMO.

Well the So-Called BBC are talking about it.

The Noodle Armaments prize may yet go to Greta. After all, she is a manipulated puppet of the very well off, manipulating the quite well off, with nothing better to do, to complain about poor people who would like their share. In some ways I am a very unreconstructed Socialist.

I would like to know just how many barricading the So-Called BBC work inside the So-Called BBC. I mean, it was Friday and almost time to go home. Don't want to go far as it might rain. Plus we have loos here and Pablo, the South American guy who delivers our coffee, says he won't come all the way to Traflagar Square. Let's just go outside and have a sit down.

If these loathsome hypocrites were serious about the environment they could always volunteer to pick up litter where they live,but I suppose they wouldn't get much done as they would be too busy posting pictures of themselves virtuously picking up litter.
