UK Science Museum Cools on Global Warming.

The London Science Museum declares Global Warming "Is bollox", revising the contents of its new climate science gallery to reflect the wave of scepticism that has engulfed the issue in recent months.
The decision by the 100-year-old London museum reveals how deeply scientific institutions have been shaken by the public’s reaction to revelations of malpractice by climate scientists.
The museum had intended to call it the Climate Change Gallery, but has decided to change this to Climate Science Gallery to avoid being accused of presuming that emissions would change the temperature.

"Last October the museum launched a temporary exhibition called “Prove It! All the evidence you need to believe in climate change". Which, some bloggers will recall, had an interactive poll allowing folk to pledge support for Global Warming, or not, as their Poll found out. We told them it was bollox, and hey, guess what. The Science Museum has taken it on board. Yay another victory

“The Science Museum will not state a position on whether or not climate change is real, driven by humans or threatening.

The London Times, "Science Museum Says AGW Is Probably Bollox"

So this bastion of real science, the font of knowledge for countless generations of schoolchildren, including me, has seen the light.

(Sorry for the lack of any further insight or illuminating pics and vids but I have personal issues at this time).

Go To Work On An Egg. Yes/No ?

Back when I were a lad eggs were a staple food dished up daily in a variety of fashions, fried, coddled, scrambled, boiled or poached and promoted in a series of TV ads featuring Tony Hancock using the slogan "Go To Work On An Egg".

(Soz 9 minutes, could not find a shorter one).

Then along came Edwina Currie (Conservative fornicator of UK X-Premier John Major) of the great salmonella in eggs debacle in the 1980s. In 1988 Mrs Currie, then a junior health minister, said most egg production in Britain was (were?) infected with salmonella. Although forced to resign the damage had been done, now eggs were deemed "a bad thing" and the press loved to remind us every now and again 2002

In 2007 the UK Advertising Standards Authority, keen to jump on the bansturbation bandwaggon, decided that
"'Go to Work on an Egg' was far too dangerous for modern-day audiences.
The Advertising Watchdog banned the catchphrase, claiming it "fails to promote a varied and balanced diet." and we were all gonna die from salmonela, hysteria, listeria, wysteria whatever they could think of next to promote their own self importance and forbade the egg industry from reissuing the old slogan.

Fast forward to 2010 and it sems that "You can now go to work on an egg every day", scientists say.
"Eggs have an "insignificant" affect on people's cholesterol, according to scientists, who are now recommending that most people can eat as many eggs as they want".

Not satisfied with that

Eggs are the new Super Food

"According to a latest report, eggs should be considered a ‘superfood’, for their ability to improve health and help in dealing with obesity too.
Eggs are one of the most nutrient-rich foods available and people should be consuming at least one egg a day to fetch good results. ‘Nutrition & Food Science’ will publish the study in June".

Thanks guys, I think my old Mum knew that and my Grandma, and countless generations of my ancestors since they domesticated wildfowl.

Allotment Terror

Allotments were introduced to Britain during WW1 (1914-18 UK) as a way of encouraging residents to grow their own food and thus aid the war effort but were so popular that they have continued in use ever since. Not only did they help the economically challenged feed their families, they also preserved a tenuous link with the land for the urban masses and gave grandad a small space to retreat to away from the Mrs. and screaming children, pottering around in his shed.

Some twonk from The Council was on local radio the other day poncing on about how, in the name of greenery and sustainability, they were doubling the number of "families" that would benefit from access to allotments, no doubt to meet the target of some exciting new government initiative or other.

So I got chatting with an allotment holder who told me that The Council were indeed doubling the number of those with access to allotments, not by increasing the amount of public land available but by turning one allotment into two whenever any were passed on, ie no net gain. No surprises so far in this land of smoke and mirrors.

The plot thickens; this halving/doubling policy started with allotments passed on by death or voluntary surrender by the allotment holders but then The Council started issuing Allotment Plans which specified what could and could not be done with allotments and woe betide any who defied them, allotment seized and redistributed to their servile favorites in a brutal campaign clearly copied from Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe. Allotment holders now find themselves spied upon to ensure that the specified proportion of land is given over to fruit, veg, flowers or whatever. This simple and useful pastime has been reduced to nazi serfdom in an atmosphere of fear and denunciation where the rebellious few who dare grow nasturtiums, which are flowers but can be eaten, or bamboo, an ornamental crop that is also an economic one, are mercilessly thrown off their land and condemned to the tender mercies of Tesco and Costcutter in a terror campaign akin to the destruction of the prosperous peasants or Kulaks in Soviet Russia, Joe Stalin would have been proud.

Arize allotment holders of Britain, you have nothing to lose but your chains!

Banned to face Booze Poverty?

Thanks to G.Browns shite handling of the economy for 13 years, Chancellor A.Darling seems set to raise the price of a bottle of spirits (hard liquor US) by eight fucking quid, what a cunt!
On a bottle of cheapo own brand vodka that amounts to an increase of 80%+ which is fair enough since only chavs (white trash US) and tramps (hobos US) drink that stuff.
Chavettes, binge drinking slags before they puke up, piss on any passing stranger that they or their "boyfriends" may or may not choose to randomly rob cuz it's the recession, innit" before they stab them.

But even my own favorite tipple Laphroaig 18 Year old

willl face a hefty 12% hike and for what? To pay for the Bank Bailout that has left Britain with three Trillion pounds of debt on top of the profilgacy of our Socialist administration wastings billions per hour on shit, useless and pointless IT schemes; billions more on idle feckless cunts breeding ever more unwanted sprogs for the
Free Money; importing countless millions of the worlds riff-raff to prop up their vote and, the real villain of the piece, creating millions of Public Sector 'Workers' paid generously to spy, cajole, nanny and punish us for going about our daily business and, of course, vote Labour to ensure their continued employment.
Yet that mendacious twat Darling tries to present this as "saving teen drinkers (see pic above) from the evils of alcohol", fucking lier; it's all about robbing the middle classes of CASH to prop up what remains of their evil administration.
