"Really new trails are rarely blazed in the great academies.
The confining walls of conformist dogma are too dominating.
To think originally, you must go forth into the wilderness."

Dear Mr. Clegg
The fuel protests hammer home a clear message. After the 10p tax rebellion, the local elections, and the Crewe by-election, no one can doubt the mood of the country any more. There is insurrection in the air. The British people are ready for change and they don't believe Labour can deliver it. Nick Clegg, The Daily Telegraph, 28 May 2008
Spot on and, with that, every likelihood that LibDems would also be decimated were a general election to be held imminently. Farther down the line, it’s not so easy to predict. Politicians, after all, possess a wondrous talent for lousing things up. It’s unlikely that David Cameron will do so, but I’m long enough in the tooth not to have learned to be wary about counting chickens.
If anything, even more than a corrupt, meddling, supine and sanctimonious government, your party has for years promoted the clamour arising from fascist environmentalism – Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, World Wildlife Fund and disciples of Mr. Monbiot, to name just a few. Despite a complete absence of empirical evidence, it has promoted junk AGW science and censorship in the face of copious observed data to the contrary. This has been done:
· in the face of dissent from world class scientific practitioners in huge numbers from virtually the entire Russian Academy of Sciences to legions of their counterparts in the West.;
· in the full knowledge that promoters of AGW science steadfastly decline to debate their work with dissenting peers, indeed even to release their data and methodology. These have had to be prised out and, having been, have led invariably to exposure and evisceration;
· in the full knowledge that AGW practitioners and their followers routinely engage in every form of chicanery to misrepresent the science (junk and real) as well as dissenters from their nonsense;
· notwithstanding constantly repeated warnings of more sensible non-scientific specialists regarding the devastating consequences to the economies of the West for no alleviation whatsoever of atmospheric CO2 concentrations – en passant, not that alleviation is necessary anyway. Treasure in uncounted quantities has been expended on productively worthless renewable sources of energy together with concomitant and fraudulent so-called carbon offset trading.
The electorate is bored with the fraud, and rightly so. Decline in average surface temperatures worldwide is plain for all to see and, with it, the certainty that CO2 plays no part in driving climate. Great benefit will accrue to the political party, which has the moral courage and the integrity to be the first to state that global warming, mendaciously morphed to climate change, is a vast and massive scam; were it not so patently dishonest, the less opprobrious word ‘delusion’ might be more appropriate. It would help greatly if all so-called climate change initiatives were abandoned, and the charitable status of environmental pressure groups was withdrawn.
Will this happen? Assuredly not from any government in which LibDems exercise influence. May you live with the consequences.
