129. Official: the more scientifically illiterate you are, the more you believe in 'climate change'...
Before I head off for my well-earned rest after my last well-earned rest, I can't resist drawing your attention to this delicious story by Lewis Page in the Register.Turns out that a stunt arranged by the US climate alarmist establishment to discredit sceptics has backfired horribly:A US government-funded survey has found that Americans with higher levels of scientific and mathematical knowledge are more sceptical regarding the dangers of climate change than their more poorly educated fellow citizens.The results of the survey are especially remarkable as it was plainly not intended to show any such thing: Rather, the researchers and trick-cyclists who carried it out were doing so from the position that the "scientific consensus" (carbon-driven global warming is ongoing and extremely dangerous) is a settled fact, and the priority is now to find some way of getting US voters to believe in the need for urgent, immediate and massive action to reduce CO2 emissions.Needless to say, the authors of the report fail to draw the logical conclusion from all this. Rather than see it as further proof that Anthropogenic Global Warming theory has about as much in the way of legs as the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, they instead ascribe it – a bit like Steve Jones did in his embarrassing and discredited report for the BBC Trust on the BBC's lamentable science reporting – on false consciousness.What's needed, the authors of the report appear to believe, is not better science – but more PR and spin.

130. Vince Cable's latest stuff on the economy is a pathetic waste of time | Telegraph Blogs
The coincidence of timing really could not have been more perfect. Vince Cable chose this morning to unveil the British Business Bank that his department is working up. The Business Secretary is an interventionist who thinks the government (already spending 43.3 per cent of GDP) is not doing enough for the economy.As Vince was burbling on in a radio interview about his department getting involved in the tunnel-digging industry and much else besides, a report by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) was also landing. It exposed the failure of the government's previous great interventionist initiative, the Regional Growth Fund.When the fund was launched by Nick Clegg he set a target of "delivering" 36,800 jobs, by doling out £1.4bn to companies. As Clive Aslett said the other day: you know a policy is a lemon when you hear Clegg announcing it. And so it has transpired. The symbol of the Regional Growth Fund might as well be a small, ellipsoidal, yellow citrus fruit.The PAC report reveals that so far the fund has only created 2,400 jobs. Only £60 million has reached front-line businesses with £470 million "parked" with intermediary bodies such as local authorities and quangos who are working out what to do with it.

131. Supporters of EU membership seriously need some better arguments – Telegraph Blogs
What is it with Euro-enthusiasts and their supposedly sobering alternatives? First, the European Commission said that, outside the EU, Britain would be like Switzerland. Not Switzerland? Not the wealthiest country in the world? Then the PM said that we might end up like Norway, which the UN reckons is the best place on Earth to live. Now, in the Financial Times, Jonathan Powell warns us that 'it would mean becoming a sort of Greater Cayman Islands, a tax haven and offshore shelter'. Ooh, stop, you're scaring us! Not lower taxes!

132. Britain's export enigma explained - Telegraph Blogs
British exports to the world aren’t rising, but falling. In February sales of UK exports were down 1.6 percent to £23.5 Billion.This is the lowest level since November 2010 – despite the fact that the world economy is somewhere between 5 and 10 percent bigger now than it was then.What has gone wrong?Mainstream economists – the sort of experts who failed to see the financial bubble coming – have struggled to account for this export enigma. Despite all the best efforts of government to rebalance the economy, and make the UK less reliant on domestic consumer growth, we are today more reliant on domestic demand than ever before.In my recent paper on monetary policy, I hinted at one possible contributory factor.Years of ultra easy money – low rates, QE, cheap credit – have created lots of “zombie firms”.

133. Middle England for wind turbines and expensive energy? Pull the other one. – Telegraph...
I note that the green lobby is trying to spin the protests at Balcombe in East Sussex as Middle England in revolt against fracking. What absolute rot! Never mind that some of the protestors were seen sitting in comfy middle-class-style camping chairs and drinking tea out of actual china cups (there will always be the odd useful idiot at these events) – the fact is that this was part of a well-orchestrated campaign by the usual suspects of the green-stained hard left to close down Western industrial civilisation by whatever means they can.Fracking is the best hope we all have of a quick economic recovery, lower energy prices and an end to the lunacy of onshore and offshore wind. Why, then, would any even half-way informed Middle Englishman or Middle Englishwoman oppose it?

134. Where is Bongo Bongo Land, anyway? - Telegraph Blogs
Have you been to Bongo Bongo Land? I have – but only in Tintin and dogeared copies of Sanders of the River and the fabulous Deborah Kerr and Stewart Grainger version of King Solomon's Mines. Still, I think we all have a good idea what Ukip MEP Godfrey Bloom was on about when he told a meeting of supporters in the West Midlands that he didn't want vast sums of taxpayers' money being squandered on pointless foreign aid. Often, he noted, it ends up not in the hands of the needy but on "Ray-Ban sunglasses, apartments in Paris, Ferraris and all the rest of it" for grasping Third World kleptocrats.If anyone has a problem with the factual basis of Bloom's argument, let them speak up now.

135. Cllr Ralph Baldwin: Why I am joining the Conservative Party | Local Government
Cllr Ralph Baldwin of Barking and Dagenham Council announces his decision to join the Conservative PartyOver the past months I have been preparing myself for a massive change. Ironically it has been a much smoother process than anticipated. People are often questioning their parties, more often than not because they care very much about the issues and policies their Leaders are implementing. It’s a sign of healthy vibrancy and introspection, of intelligence and debate, of freedom over control. When you are sitting in the Council Chamber of Barking and Dagenham, one thing you quickly realise is the silence and even the local paper mentions the strange “lack of discussion” in meetings.It is no longer about “loyalty”, it is about nothing short of totalitarian control. The strangest aspect was the lack of discussion in the Labour Group meetings where people were too afraid to speak out. The fear was palpable.When you watch Question Time their attack lines are generic and clumsy, referring to people losing their jobs and businesses, or helping millionaires (Labour still courts them and is led by them), relying on “Eton” as an elitist criticism when Labour still brands it’s MPs a political “elite” to satisfy their pretentious delusions and attack their own long dead ideology, with the usual hypocrisy and their future MPs and Parliamentary staff are mostly inexperienced ex-public school people.Of course Labour is not offering an alternative to the policy of austerity and yet is trying to play two games at once, relying on a strategy they practised upon their own membership to prove to themselves how dim their own members were (they do not understand the virtue of loyalty only control using any means) and that is to proclaim a programme, no matter how shallow and go through the motions only whilst trying to steal Conservative ground. Ed Milliband attempted to create a “New Generation” without actually making any real changes at all to his party other than to try and con more members into campaigning harder and even diluted further their input at Conference

136. Royal Mail's lazy, slow-moving postmen have enjoyed a monopoly long enough. Time to bring on...
I blame Postman Pat: kind and cuddly, animal-loving and child-friendly. It gave everyone the impression that posties were the best public servants, a beloved feature of the neighbourhood.Yeah, right. Viz magazine's Postman Plod (see above) is nearer the mark. Postmen (postwomen are no better) have got away with sloppy delivery and lazy attitudes for years now. Thank goodness that, as of today, TNT Post UK is challenging Royal Mail by unveiling its first major UK trial of delivering post in the west London area.Until today, the Royal Mail posties have got away with the kind of work ethic that would get them fired within minutes in the private sector.

137. Eurocrats: 'The more we spend, the more you save!' – Telegraph Blogs
It seems pretty clear that, in the short term at any rate, Eurocrats can't muster the necessary majority for a Financial Transactions Tax. So they've moved to Plan B: an EU-wide stamp duty on share trading.Such a levy already exists in some states, including the United Kingdom. But to propose it is to beg the question. There is an implicit assumption that EU spending must rise in real terms every year – as, indeed, it has for the past half century. But why, at a time when every one of the 27 member states is looking to cut its budget, should the EU, uniquely, be trying to acquire new revenue streams?The EU budget will rise by 15 billion euros over the next two years. According to the OBR, Britain's net contributions will go from £6.9 billion to £9.3 billion over that period; our gross contributions from £11.9 billion to £14.8 billion. This compares to total savings of £8.6 billion across the whole of our domestic spending.Other countries – Ireland, Latvia, Portugal – are making far deeper cuts. They, too, can see their austerity measures being cancelled out by the Brussels budget. Why doesn't the EU look for savings in line with its constituent states?

138. As long as the Eurosceptic vote is fragmented, the Euro-enthusiasts will keep winning –...
In 1993, Canada’s Conservatives were wiped out. The governing party lost all but two of its 156 MPs and began a lengthy spell in opposition. Defeat on such a scale doesn’t happen for just one reason, of course, but the Tories’ single biggest disadvantage is easily identified: the Right-wing vote was split........You can probably guess where I’m going with this argument. The latest YouGov poll has my party on 32 per cent, and UKIP on 9 per cent. Together, that’s a Conservative government; separately, it’s a Labour government. It’s true, of course, that not every UKIP voter is a former Tory. Then again, the relevant question is not ‘how did they vote before?’ but ‘if UKIP didn’t exist, how would they vote today?’ It seems not unreasonable to assume that the majority would support the most convincingly Eurosceptic party on offer.

140. How Hattie's friends defended paedophilia - Telegraph Blogs
Harriet Harman is calling for an independent inquiry into the Jimmy Savile scandal. A key question, she says, is why so many alleged victims felt “they couldn’t complain”.Well, one answer is that attitudes towards paedophilia in the 1970s were bizarrely relaxed – and not just in Catholic presbyteries or BBC dressing rooms. This was the era when activists on the radical Left lobbied long and hard for changes in the law to reflect a more “enlightened” attitude towards sex between adults and minors.But that won’t be news to Hattie. In 1978, she became legal officer for the National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL), which – in its evidence to the Criminal Law Revision Committee in 1976 – had said the following:“Childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in, with an adult result in no identifiable damage… The real need is a change in the attitude which assumes that all cases of paedophilia result in lasting damage.”

141. Wind farms: Ceausescu would have loved 'em – Telegraph Blogs
Wind farms are like one of those frustratingly unripened boils: you know that you shouldn't keep squeezing but they're so noxious and irritating and hideous that you just can't resist. If you've got the same problem, then I heartily recommend you read this brilliant essay on the subject by Russell Taylor.I love his dismissal of people who claim to find wind turbines beautiful: "….a sentiment I find as credible as a Soviet peasant admiring the Tiger tank that had just squashed his grandmother."But what really grabbed me was his analysis at the end of wind turbines' totemic significance to the left. I've touched on this before myself. It's why I christened them "eco-crucifixes", because they're not really about viable energy or even saving the planet but rather, like…

142. "The website David Cameron doesn't want you to see" - Left Watch | ConservativeHome
‘The website David Cameron doesn't want you to see’ is how left-wing activists are describing SearchTheMoney.com. The website is the brainchild of Laurence Durnan who created the Political Scrapbook blog, a relentlessly anti-Tory but not unamusing blog.The new SearchTheMoney website aims to make it simple for people to see who is giving to the Tory Party and to individual MPs. It aims to bring transparency to the financing of the Conservative Party and, it says, to highlight the extent to which the Conservative Party is dependent upon money from the City.The site is clearly a political rather than a transparency exercise however. It does not bring the same searching scrutiny to the financing of Labour MPs.

143. 'One Nation Labour' would ruin the country, just like Old and New Labour – Telegraph Blogs
Old Labour wrecked the economy in the 1970s and then collapsed (despite Jim Callaghan's brave stand against the far-Left union leaders) in the aftermath of the Winter of Discontent. Then, after wrecking the economy which Thatcher and Major had fixed in the 1980s and 90s, Blair did a runner leaving NuLabour and Brown to collapse in 2010. Now, as Cameron and Osborne, hampered by their Lib Dem partners, struggle with a mountain of debt left by the Blair/Brown debacle, One Nation Labour has been born. Its prescription for recovery is no different from that of Old Labour or NuLabour. The label on the bottle has been changed but the contents have altered very little.

144. Germans are finally losing patience with the euro racket – Telegraph Blogs
Forty-nine per cent of Germans, according to Die Welt, think they would be better off without the EU, as against only 32 per cent who think they would suffer. Who'd have thought it, eh? Germans being fleeced by the EU? Es braucht keinen Geist, Gnädiger Herr, der aus seinem Grabe aufstehe, uns das zu sagen: there needs no ghost, my Lord, come from the grave, to tell us this.One of the many things Germans have in common with us is that they are disproportionately penalised by the EU's budgetary structures. For half a century, their politicians have pre-empted any criticism of this unfairness by an elliptical appeal to historical responsibility. The appeal, as you can hear me saying in the above clip, must always be kept elliptical, lest its utter absurdity become evident.An Oxford contemporary reminded me, at our White Wednesday reunion, of a conversation we had had…
