Solar Panels Subsidy Was The Most Ridiculous Green Scheme Deramed Up
A plan to subsidise solar panels on homes was “one of the most ridiculous schemes ever dreamed up”, a Government minister has said.
Lord Marland, an Energy minister, hit out at the cost of so-called feed-in tariffs, which the Government has axed as part of the cuts programme. Last week Court of Appeal ruled that the sudden axing of the tariffs ...

Goodbye Great Britain
Recently, there have been two powerful challenges to the conventional wisdom about the United States. First, Robert Kagan published a lengthy essay in The New Republic, arguing that predictions of America's decline as a global power are woefully premature. .Is it possible, I found myself wondering, to do something similar for Britain? Robert Colvile has a go in this Daily Telegraph article ...

Our rising debt levels are becoming unsustainable – soon we may be talking about wealth confiscation (By Daniel Knowles, Daily Telegraph)
Debt, debt, debt; we’re drowning in it. This morning, the Office for National Statistics published the latest estimates of public sector borrowing. Though borrowing is falling faster than anticipated, thanks to the fact that spending cuts are finally beginning to kick in, the national debt has risen to 64.2 per cent of GDP. More significantly,…

The Obama administration knifes Britain in the back again over the Falklands - By Nile Gardiner World
In yet another display of disdain for the Anglo-American Special Relationship, the Obama administration has weighed in on the mounting tensions between Great Britain and Argentina over the Falkland Islands. Just two days after Prime Minister David Cameron issued a robust statement in the House of Commons vowing to defend the sovereignty of the Falklands,…

Drones In The Hands Of The Paparrazi - It's an ethical minefield
America's use of drones for targeted killings is serious enough. But commercial and law enforcement uses are on the horizon. Whether you view them as model aeroplanes for grown-ups or the handmaidens of the killer robot, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, are taking off in earnest. ...

The Observer uncritically regurgitates Trotskyist smears against Katharine Birbalsingh- By Toby Young, Daily Telegraph
There’s a disgraceful attempt to smear Katharine Birbalsingh in this morning’s Observer. Under the headline “Katharine Birbalsingh criticised over ‘wasteful’ free school project“, the paper’s policy editor Daniel Boffey tries to create the impression that there’s growing local opposition to the Michaela Community School – Birbalsingh’s free school – which is due to open in…

We’re being sent the bill for the euro crisis again – this time by the IMF - By Daniel Hannan First it was individual banks; then whole industries; then entire countries; now it’s the world. Western leaders have reacted to the failure of each bailout by decreeing a bigger one. Unable to admit their mistake, slaves to the defunct economist whose thinking dominates our economics faculties and central banks, they act like so many Nick Leesons,…

The Three Parent Family More on the progressive left's war on the family and the scientific dictaorship's attempts to dehumanize us all.

The Wellcome Trust has funded the research (the figures vary between Ł4 million and six million …

As Obama Positions Himself For A War In Syria We Learn That Like Gadaffi, Assad Is Popular With His People
Most Syrians back President Assad, but you'd never know from western mediaAssad's popularity, Arab League observers, US military involvement: all distorted in the west's propaganda war. Suppose a respectable opinion poll found that most Syrians are in favour of Bashar al-Assad remaining as president, would that not be major news? Well one did and we never heard a word of it in the Obama felching western media ...

Will bringing back grammar schools boost social mobility? by Toby Young Daily Telegraph
The possibility that England may shortly see its first new grammar school in over 50 years has, predictably enough, re-opened the debate about selective education. Yesterday, for instance, Allison Pearson came down firmly in favour, while Fiona Millar shot back with an instant rebuttal. I’ll get into that argument in a moment, but first let’s be…

So Why Read Books Anymore
There is great “truth and beauty” in Homer’s Iliad, but I would not try to make his sale on such platitudes. Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire remains a classic. But I confess it can be hard to get through. Conrad’s Victory or Knut Hamsun’s Growth of the Soil, if authored by writer X this year, would be trashed on Amazon.So what are the reasons, in this age of ...

Dystopian Prophecies Are Coming True - The Government Will Soon Choose Our Wives
Thinking of this entertaining new literary award – “the Hatchet Job of the Year” – it was natural to turn to Macaulay’s Essays, for few reviewers have ever been less reluctant to wound.

How come people are forming the impression that the UK Bill of Rights Commission is doing rather less for the public good than a ...

Labour See The Light As Ed Balls Slaps Down Leftie Flat Earthers - Dan Hodges, Daily Telegraph
Ed Miliband began the week talking about tough decisions. Ed Balls has ended the week taking them. His announcement to today’s Fabian conference that he is backing a public sector pay freeze was bold in itself. But coupled with the briefing to this morning’s papers that Labour will not automatically oppose any of the Coalition cuts.

Global Warming - Climaytologists Issue A Grovelling Apology - NOT - James Delingpole.
I've just been listening to BBC Radio 4's More Or Less. It was the episode announcing that the Global Warming Policy Foundation's scientific adviser Dr David Whitehouse had won a Ł100 bet made on the programme four years ago with climatologist Dr James Annan. Annan predicted temperatures would rise in that period; Whitehouse predicted they wouldn't. Annan lost.

Why Is Britain Ramping Up Sanctions Against Iran
Sabre-rattling at Washington's behest is an idiocy, and likely to do little other than escalate the steps to open conflict. Britain is out of Iraq and desperate to get out of Afghanistan. So why gird ourselves for a fight with Iran, a proud country of 75 million people with whom we cannot go to war without taking leave of our senses?

When exam boards speenfeed answers to children there is no hope for education.
The truly extraordinary thing about the latest exam board scandal is that the board in question felt it necessary to help children cheat. That is to say, the WJEC thought the questions it was setting in its GCSE exam in Information and Communications Technology were so difficult that children would only be able to cope if the answers were provided to their teachers in advance ...

Post Normal Science
As the memories of the Soviet Union and Mao's China fade, a new generation of Marxists has materialized. Still-living members of the old generation are keeping the faith. How can anyone be a Marxist given the Marxist horrors of the 20th century? It could be jealousy, rebelliousness, primordial archetypes, indulgent child-rearing, or a college education. Ask a shrink. Marxists use front groups and front causes to hide their true intentions. This is like the movies, where aliens disguise themselves as humans until they expose their true bodies -- bodies that feature ...

As Euronazis Call For More Integration, EWU Nations Are Starting To Hate Each Other
My friend Denis MacShane can never be accused of a loss of nerve. Sticking unfailingly to the Europhile line, he is reiterating the unreconstructed received wisdom on the break-up of the euro. On Radio 5 Live this morning, he warned against what he presumably sees as the triumph of the Eurosceptic argument. “If we don’t make any case…

McKinsey Trampled On The Rain Forests, How Can It Be Trusted To Advise Governments.
The firm consulting on the NHS shake-up has given advice on forest protection that benefits only big business. Its secrecy is causing concern. The world's most influential management consultany (motto: "If it can be measured it can be managed") is a favourite adviser of big government, big finance and big business. And no wonder; the advice they give always seems to be what the client most wants to hear.

It Was Not Just One Man Who Killed Michael Jackson - Christina Patterson, The Independent
People said, while crying in front of cameras, that there had, at long last, been what their banners had demanded: "Justice for Michael!". His mother agreed. "I feel," she told reporters, "better now." Everyone seemed to. Everyone – apart, perhaps, from Conrad Murray, and his defence lawyers, and maybe some of the women who claimed to be his girlfriend, and maybe some of the mothers of some of his children – seemed to feel an awful lot better now ...

The Euro Crisis Is Eroding Democracy Charles Crawford- The Daily Telegraph.
The eurozone crisis is eroding our democracy. How do we withdraw our consent from being governed like this?

Would A Computer Outsmart You?
When you chat to your mates online, are you sure they are not machines? If you're not, maybe you've entered some Gibsonian cyberspace inhabited by an artificial intelligence (AI), or maybe you should think about getting new chat mates. Alan Turing set out this challenge in 1950 based on a Victorian "imitation game", in which competitors had to work out if they were communicating with a hidden man or woman. Turing reckoned that, if a program could convince people it was a human, it was to all intents and purposes thinking. He predicted that machines would easily pass the Turing test by the year 2000, but none has even come close. The Loebner prize exposes this failure and is boycotted by ...

Gadaffi Comes To Westminster
The Tories are revolting! Amid major threats of a mulity in the ranks over David Cameron's imposition of a whip on the debate about whether we should have a reerendum on whether Britain stasys in the EU or deserts the sinking ship. As opposition in the party grew Cameron did a very passable impersonation of recently deceased third world tyrant Mumammar Gaddafi by threatening to sack Conservative junior ministers that in a one man one vote system he was the man who had the one vote.Over to you Mr. Farage.

Actually “pathetic and stupid” is how “health expert” Professor Philip James, from the delightfully named “International Association for the Study of Obesity” described the government’s health strategy, announced yesterday. Prof James went on to say that the junk food industry “manipulated” individuals into consuming their products and that was why legislation was needed.Hmmm would the “International Association for the Study of Obesity” be the same group that has been accused of taking millions of pounds from drug companies who make …..oh….. anti-obesity drugs ... ?

Labour's Voodoo Economics
Ever since losing the election, Labour has been running the argument that deficit reduction is counter-productive, since raising taxes and cutting spending crimps growth and therefore actually increases the size of the deficit rather than reducing it.

Why Are Trans Fats Still Legal?
The trans fats in junk food are responsible for the deaths of around 7,000 people a year in the UK – and teenagers are most at risk. Elsewhere, these toxic substances are banned. So why are they still legal in this country?

Not The Missing Link Again Daily Telegraph top boring fucker science writer Tom Chivers reports on a newly discoverd fossil that may be from the earliest ancestor of humans but appeals to sciece wriyters to stop using the phrase "mssing link." In the comment thread (better than the post) readers appeal to scientists like Tom to stop wasting time and money on the irrelevant. Once therewere monkeys, now there are humans (and a sub human species called science tits) How we go from monkeys to humans, (if indeed we did) does not matter.

Our Labour Market Paradox
The UK labour market is deeply dysfunctional. Today, the Telegraph reported that there are three major cities where around a third of the homes contain adults that have never had a job. That is not an unemployment rate. No, it is something much worse. It is an unemployable rate. It is a number that tells us ...

Let's not be suckered into following Obama's lead
By Jeremy Warner - Daily Telegraph

Obama says reflate, and Osborne up yours – we are sticking to Plan A. That broadly summarises the juxtaposition of Barack Obama’s new $447bn plan for growth and what the UK Chancellor, George Osborne, said at Chatham House this morning. Christine Lagarde, the new managing director of the IMF, was speaking at Chatham House too,…

Why Are Poor White Boys Doing Badly At School?
When social scientists try to explain something, they look at all kinds of factors they can measure. Take education. You could try to explain variations in pupils’ results by looking at their parents class or wealth or education. Or we might look at school performance, teacher quality, class sizes and so on. Social researchers don’t like saying…

It's Depressing That The Right To Die Has Become A Cause Celibre
These days, the only time you hear the word “autonomy” said with any vigour, with heartfelt oomph, is in relation to assisted suicide. In every other area of life, the idea of moral autonomy has taken a beating in recent years. Parental autonomy is continually blitzed by know-it-all politicos and supernannies who want to subject…

Climate scepticism is the new racism, Al Gore has told an interviewer. And do you know what? He’s absolutely right.

Barack Obama Is Powrless He Might As Well Stay On The Beach
The first I knew of President Obama’s decision to holiday on Martha’s Vineyard for a third successive year was when the car rental folk told me that all they had for August were SUVs at a thousand dollars a week, his entourage having bagged the rest. We’ve been coming here, off and on, since American friends introduced us to the island during a sabbatical year at next-door Harvard. I imagine that Obama comes, like Bill Clinton before him, because it seems ...

Why we need a moral panic over last week's riots by Ed West, Daily Telegraph
The Economist’s Bagehot suggests that we shouldn’t get our knickers in a twist about the riots, quoting previous examples of moral panic about social disorder, crime and youth culture to show that last week’s events are nothing new. He cites articles about “young delinquents” in 1913, 1956 headlines about “rock’n’roll babies” and even reports from 1815,…

Starkey, Racism and The Underclass
Anyone who has met a white working-class lad or lass aged between 11 and 19 will know that David Starkey had a point when he said, rather crudely, that white chavs “have become black”. One of the curiosities of the gym that I go to in Lambeth in South London is that all the white…

Obama The Most Unpopular President Ever?
Gallup’s latest numbers are a real eye-opener. The polling company now has Barack Obama’s approval rating at just 39 percent, the lowest level of his presidency, and down 13 percentage points since the start of June. Gallup finds that 54 percent of Americans now disapprove of the president’s job performance. And according to the RealClear…

Cameron's Speech On Riots Focuses On Responsibility
With parliament recalled from recess, David Cameron stood at the despatch box to stamp out a crisis. Cameron's statement went on for almost three hours today but set the right tone of repugnance at recent events combined with a determiniation to tackle the decay in social values. To be fair Ed Milliband's response was equally sober and on target and free from any hint of the political points scoring we associate with politicians in opposition.

Riots: Left and Right look for simple answers
It’s the welfare state! It’s the cuts! It’s Labour subsidising single mothers! It’s Thatcher undermining society! It’s Left, it’s Right, it’s liberal intelligentsia, it’s conservative callousness, it’s Their Fault, it’s Their Fault, it’s Their Fault. Humanity is a tribal species, and it’s entirely natural that we lump ourselves into groups. Our brains are evolved organs, and…

The Intellectual Bankruptcy Of The Progressive Left
Last night’s high-octane encounter between Harriet Harman and Michael Gove is well worth watching. Not just as a piece of political theatre, but because of what it says about the “progressive” Left.

Eurogeddon Postponed Again
Euroggedon is postponed again. Jean-Claude Trichet has saved civilization. There will not be a spiralling bond crisis in Italy and Spain in early August after all.

In this grave crisis, the world’s leaders are terrifyingly out of their depth By Peter Oborne The Daily Telegraph
Certain years have gone down in history as great global turning points, after which nothing was remotely the same: 1914, 1929, 1939, 1989. Now it looks horribly plausible that 2011 will join their number. The very grave financial crisis that has hung over Europe ever since the banking collapse of three …

The heart miracle scam revisited Velvet glove, Iron fist blog
One of the more blatant scientific scams of recent years has been the heart miracle phenomenon, in which tobacco control campaigners create studies showing a dramatic fall in heart attacks after smoking bans. It began when Stanton Glantz of Americans for Nonsmokers' Right announced the 'Helena miracle' in 2003, claiming a 60% drop in heart attacks after the ...

The dawning of a new age - Raewald There are two cogent opinion pieces, both in the Telegraph, this morning that usefully summarise where we are.

Keep Repeating The Lie And It Will Become The Truth Shortly after the inauguration in 2009, Rham Emmanuel uttered what has come to be regarded as one of the signature lines of the Obama administration: “You never want to let a good crisis go to waste, because you have a chance to make things the way that you want them to be.” Spoken like a good, solid Democratic Socialist. Castro would’ve been proud. Well, we certainly have a legitimate crisis in front of us ...

Can A Biomass Boiler Keep Your Home Warm
Julian Morrison is a developer with a powerful interest in energy conservation. His restored and extended house, the Ginny Ring, on the Llangollen Canal at St Martin’s Moor near Oswestry in Shropshire, is a kind of love affair with wood. “It is made largely of oak, and the extension is timber frame made of oak,” he says. Windows, doors, curtain poles and stairs were all handmade by a local craftsman. But the pičce de résistance is the biomass gasification boiler, kept like a hungry beast in an ...

Who Is More Obsessed With Satanic Sex, The Church Or The Politically Correct Left?
A subtle rewriting of history is taking place on the back of the Amanda Knox acquittal. Reading feminist commentary on the case, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Catholic Church and its weird obsession with Satanic cults are ultimately to blame for Knox’s sorrows. Apparently, the Church, being stuck in the fifteenth century,…

If Creativity Can Lead To Madness Why Do We Offer Art Therapy?
I was recently at a fundraising dinner for Mind, the leading mental health charity in the UK. One of the big themes for the evening (other than Stephen Fry’s investiture as president), was the idea of art as therapy. My only qualifications to write about therapy and mental illness are a rather lame 2:1 in ...

Obama looks stupid as he lectures Germany on financial management
Germany’s finance minister Wolfang Schauble has launched a stinging rebuke to the Obama administration after Washington pushed for the European Union to boost its EFSF bail out fund. After Obama declared that the European financial crisis is “scaring the world”, Schauble shot back at the US president by warning: “It’s always …

The Large Hadron Collider’s search for the Higgs boson – the theoretical particle that is believed to give all matter in the universe mass – is, according to physicists, entering its last phase.

The Shallow Anti Americanism Of US Liberals
There are few subjects that provoke as much smug condescension and shallow anti-Americanism as the death penalty in the United States. And the “debate” over the execution in Georgia last Wednesday of Troy Davis, 42, convicted of the 1989 murder of Mark MacPhail, an off-duty police officer, marked a new low. The sheer emotionalism and partisanship…

Watermelons vs Shale Gas
God knows we could all do with some good news right now. And as it happens, from Oop North near Blackpool this week, we had good news in spades. Sure, it was known Britain was sitting on some pretty sizeable shale gas deposits. What hadn’t been announced before though, was just how sizeable. Quantitative Easing Failed - Why Are Economists Demanging More?
The IMF’s figures are pitilessly clear. The countries which decreed the biggest bailouts and stimulus package, the countries which printed the most money, are suffering the slowest growth. The Bank of England’s ‘quantitative easing’ was, in proportionate terms, bigger even than the Fed’s. Result? Our inflation rate is higher than our competitors’, our economy commensurately…

Science Fiction Is Not Just Fantasy
Britain doesn’t have enough young people becoming scientists and engineers.

Is the EDL the new voice of the white working class? By Damian Thompson - Daily Telegraph
From Saturday’s Daily Telegraph There’s a YouTube video doing the rounds which “anti-fascist” campaigners against the English Defence League don’t want you to see.

Coronavirus: Something To Make Us Smile
Most of us are confused about the rules we’re supposed to follow during lockdown, and no one more so that the thick, blundering plod who seem to think they should be arresting people for buying non essential stuff like food, roughing up people who are sitting in their gardens, or kicking front doors down and busting up illicit social gatherings of one person sitting alone in his house. So here is a concise summary of the rules, which makes what you can and can’t do clear as mud

Has The World Health Organisation Been Helping Chinese Coronavirus Cover Up

Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified BioweaponFor the past two weeks mainstream media reporting of the epidemic of a new strain of coronavirus in China has been getting more and more hysterical.

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.
