Nail the fools
WE now expect hot-headed young clumsies with fashion concerns to pull off attention-grabbing stunts like Just Stop Oil’s idiotic snooker prevention protest.
But it’s disgusting to see a public sector union getting involved with sociopaths like Edred Whittingham – the tycoon’s son, grinning serial lout and online beggar.
Little did we know that eco-doom brainwashing had infected even the leaders of the PCS, a supposedly reputable organization representing government employees.
And how monstrously selfish all those toy town revolutionaries sounded yesterday as they issued ridiculous “demands” and threatened dark revenge if our elected government didn’t capitulate.
Maybe more futile snooker tantrums.
Or the sabotage of other sports loved by working people and so alien to the spoiled trust fund babies of Extinction Rebellion and its offshoots.
The UK is the undisputed world leader in reducing CO2 emissions.
Ours have halved in 30 years to a level not seen since 1888.
Tell that to Just Stop Oil and their mouths will drop open like goldfish.
Ditto if you tell them that Net Zero isn’t remotely possible until their imagination deadline – as more sane eco-experts accept. Or when you tell them that their stupidity has been shown to hurt their cause.
Facts and reality are never the strong points of an apocalypse cult. But again, why is any union in bed with them?
Rishi Sunak strongly condemns the anarchy they are brewing.
It could also be prevented. . . through robust policing, unsympathetic judges, and meaningful prison sentences. Just don’t rely on all of this.
Not so long as the middle-class liberals in our courts see the upper-class as friendly, kindred spirits.
Defy them PM
THE government must not hesitate to defy the European Court of Human Rights on illegal migrants.
We agree with the Tory delegation that faced Rishi Sunak yesterday. Other ECtHR members ignore his judgments. Britain has previously.
Why not now, given his effective veto on Rwanda’s deterrence?
“Stopping the boats” is the prime minister’s priority and a big campaign issue.
But his potentially most powerful weapon, the threat of deportation to Rwanda, remains a no-no.
If Strasbourg insists on tying Rishi’s hands, he must be ready to break free.
The idle rich
EVERY day it’s harder to see what we’re getting for our exorbitant council tax payments. How do local authorities justify their increase?
A motive is obvious. 721 City Hall fat rats pay more than £150,000 a year.
One gets £607,000. That’s obscene.
Meanwhile, our increasingly pockmarked streets would put a third world country to shame. Why don’t these greedy penpushers fill in these potholes?
They’re too busy filling their boots.
