Green and pleasant land?
This is a satellite image of the UK today, borrowed from an article in the Daily Mail. Even the Mail can't sensationalise this. False colour image perhaps? Well southern Ireland looks the right colour to me. No, it's not rigged. The UK is covered in snow from end to end and there's more on the way.
I would be fascinated to hear how the Green God's acolytes explain this in terms of global warming. I would also be fascinated to hear from anyone who knows of a link to a current picture of the Arctic ice cap and the sea routes around it. You know, the ice cap that's melting because of 4x4's and tumble driers and the sea routes you can apparently now travel in a pedalo. Not the ice cap that's currently growing past your front door. That's not real. The Warmers say so.
Dai Cameroid says he wants to make Britain 'green'. He'll have to thaw it out first.
A quick note to the panic buyers also. Bread is the wrong carbohydrate source to stock up on. It doesn't keep and it's too bulky to store it frozen. Stock up with pasta which is much easier to store and which won't leave you looking like a right drip if this lot manages to thaw before February. Your frozen bread stock will also prove useless if the power to your freezer goes off. Never mind the old 'there's plenty of gas' story. Maybe there is. Maybe the power stations won't close down even though the Greens have been trying hard to sabotage them (no, green folk, we have not forgotten).
Look at the snow and ice building up on the power lines. That's where the problems will be, not at the power stations. Dried food is much easier to store and is not affected by loss of power.
There's more winter to come yet. Before it ends, I'd love to hear from anyone who can look at that picture and say 'Yes, global warming is really happening, and Britain will never see snow again'.
Go on, Greenies. You've been saying it for years. Say it now.
