I found myself unemployed, Norman Tebbit said 'get on your bike', I foolishly did better, I got on a train and went south working for a millionaire, she was having a dinner party and told all present in most vicious terms that there was no need for unemployment benefits, if lazy people couldn't find work they could always be employed on farms picking potatoes, being foolish and believing that freedom of speech wouldn't result in further unemployment I pointed out that the massive majority of unemployed wanted to work and that if all of them could be transported to pick the spuds they would die of starvation because machines could do the job better.
She wasn't just horrified that one of her lower minions would dare speak out of turn, she dismissed me on the spot and within 24 hours was removed from the premises supplied by the job.
A difficult time, I'm just glad I was single at the time.

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

What I want to know is how all those folk got down to the metropolis.

I can't see much evidence that they walked(they had too much energy left for dancing in the streets)...perhaps they cycled....No, don't be silly...how many miles is from Grimsby(they would have had to set off sometime in August)

I bet all of them have mobile phones.....and if you look at the messes each of these protests have left, it is clear to see that their concern for the planet does not extend to disposing of their (hopefully) recyclable rubbish responsibly.

This lot are just virtue signalling loons who think nothing of stopping people from getting to work...ST Thomas's hospital is one of the places that has been inconvenienced by their actions.

The UK is one of the lowest producers of CO2.....if they want to make an impact on climate change, then they should set off in the general direction of China.
If they start walking now they might just get there by 2025 I just hope they will be prepared for rubber bullets, water cannons and tear gas.....Chinese riot squads don't pish about like our plods.

Cashy, they are just virtue signalling no counts who want to appear superior to those of us who have to work for a crust.

They want us to change our lifestyles so that they can continue to fly on their ski-ing holidays and drive their gas guzzling cars.

There was one eco warrior went off grid...took her family into the woods somewhere, only ate what they could catch and cooked on an open fire....I wondered if she had considered that her woodfire for cooking created carbon dioxide emissions.

The planet is emerging from an ice age so it is to be expected that the temperatures will rise.....also a better way to control climate change is to limit the number of people on the planet....to limit procreation.

Me and my family have been recycling and repurposing since before the word recycling was used.....in fact I still have a rag rug made by my Grandma...and she died in 1956!

exactly. clothes were called hand me downs and remember going with my mam th church jumble sales where i always got a toy to play with later. we were not a poor family by any stretch of the imagination but knew how to use stuff to its full value and time. we tuned lights off when a room was not in use, used the sunday joint to its full potential. young couple next door are into this save the planet stuff but have three waste bins whilst we who are sceptical of the subject only have a half full one. i give up sometimes i really do.

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

The situation this morning where these morons disrupted rush hour travel was appalling.

Those who glued themselves to carriages should be left there until the glue loses its grip....once they have spent 48 hours glued to a train carriage....without food, water or toilet facilities maybe it would bring them to their senses.

The celebrities who are supporting this cause accept that they are hypocrites, but still they carry on....and their brainless followers drink in every word and action.

Get the hoses out....drench them a bit....it is getting colder....maybe they will go home to get warm clothes.

Yes, our family was poor too.
We did what was called 'make do and mend'....no food was ever wasted.
Even mouldy stuff had the mould scratched off.
All our clothes, toys (not that we had many of them) books, shoes etc came from jumble sales or from the fa,ilies whose children had grown out of them.
The only time we got anything new was at Easter, when we got a pair of sixpenny socks....it was considered unlucky to not have something new to wear at Easter.

I was kind of hoping one of them would be stupid enough to try climbing on the roof of a train powered by overhead wires.
These actions show they have total disregard for the people they are alleged to be trying to save. Thousands of people would have been trapped underground on trains while this clown delayed the service. The actions of those idiots deserve a custodial sentence.

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

Could this be the hidden agenda behind the Thunberg phenomenon ?

https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/..._with_swedish/

… the Swedish 'green' energy companies could well make a killing. Don't think they realise though that for every person she 'convinces' two others feel like collecting up all their plastic household waste and setting fire to it in the garden for spite.

I wonder how much greenhouse gas has been produced by the eruption of the volcano in New Zealand....and how was it the fault of humanity.

Also an interesting note is that Greta Thunberg cadged a lift to a climate change conference in Portugal from a yacht owner....but all the carbon emissions that she did not make were wiped out by the yacht owner flying across the Atlantic in order to get to the said yacht.
Ludicrous isn't it that this 16 yr old knows so much...and is frightening the bejasus out of children all over the world.

I don't see these young people giving up their devices, or choosing to walk to places they want to go.

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

Look the sun will flare up one day and incinerate the planet anyway so let's just get on and enjoy things best we can while we can instead of listening to some mentally ill midget who wants us all to adopt a morbid Scandanavian style miserable depressive outlook.

I enjoy my 'morbid Scandanavian style miserable depressive outlook', it's taken me a lifetime to perfect it.
