The blame for the floods in Somerset can be laid not at Man’s door, but at the doors of many men. These men try to deflect the blame onto Man when they should be accepting responsibility for their actions. The EU is involved, the Environment Agency that cares more about molluscs than people, the Green agenda which seems determined to wipe out all humanity (but aren’t keen to lead by example), various idiot governments, and possibly more.
All this is not the filling for a tinfoil hat. As EUReferendum points out, it is documented.
So why aren’t UKIP shouting about it?
Some commenters are incensed by the recent comments attributed to Nigel Farage. Wiggia goes so far as to see it as an organised attack on UKIP, but I don’t think it is. I’d expect an organised (in the loosest sense of the word) attack from the Big Three but what I see in the likes of the Boiling Frog and other’s writings is more a sense of bitter disappointment. UKIP, and Farage in particular, seem to have completely missed an open goal.
Then again, whenever the subect comes up, all the opposing parties have to say is ‘Here we go, UKIP blaming it all on Brussels again’ – but it IS at least partly their fault! They would be right to point it out. The government are trying to blame it on global warming when they and their puppet masters are the ones responsible. ‘Global change’ or ‘climate warming’ or whatever it’s called today translates to ‘It’s your fault, proles.’
Yet there is documentary evidence that the enviroloons refused to clear silt from rivers or maintain pumping stations and that this insanity can be traced to some EU empty suit dozing in an office somewhere.
This disaster is not ‘Man-made’ but ‘man-made’.
Don’t bother even telling the Green Drones about this. I saw one in the Mail comments earlier who, when told about the Little Ice Age, responded ‘If there really was a little ice age, why isnt it on Mann’s hockey stick graph?’
Unfortunately I was too stunned to see that level of reality-disconnect in print to remember which of today’s fifty weather articles it was on.
Honestly. The Green Drones believe that a long-discredited squiggly line trumps historical fact. Do not attempt to converse with them. They will suck the IQ right out of your brain. In fact, they should be legally mandated to have warnings tattooed on their foreheads.
But back to UKIP. Why are they not pointing out the EU connection here? It’s a fair question. Farage last called for a public enquiry into the reasons behind the neglect of these rivers. Maybe he’s hoping that someone else, someone not of UKIP, will be forced to admit that it stemmed from EU policies?
Forget it, Nige. They will never admit it themselves. Never. They will conclude that it was caused by the extra lump of coal Grandma Penury added to her fire one freezing night in 1963. Anything but admit their own culpability. Their drones wil sing along, as always, because they are irredeemably stupid and believe absolutely any old shit as long as you first work out what their prejudices are, then play to them, then introduce new ones. It’s not at all difficult. The hardest part is keeping a straight face while you watch them lap it all up.
I have two questions for UKIP, in fact. Aside from the ‘why ignore the big blue elephant in the room’ one, I have another.
At this time, when they are in serious danger of winning seats in the next election, should we not be hearing of more of the party? Should we not be seeing a structure emerge? If you were to ask me about UKIP potential MPs now, I could only name Nigel Farage. We hear about few of them. Really, apart from Nigel himself, we mostly hear about the ones who get expelled or disciplined for generally behaving like dicks.
Why does Nigel do all the interviews? Is there anyone else in that party? Who would be Chancellor or Home Secretary or Health Minister or Environment Minister? On any subject at all, it’s Nigel who does the interviews.
Now, I like the guy. Never met him but he seems an affable bloke. Still, nobody can do everything. When someone tries, all they manage is a superficial layer of knowledge on each subject. That’s why we have specialists. Concentrate on one aspect and learn all the details of that one aspect. Leave other aspects to other specialists.
There should be a UKIP environment spokesman/woman/thing at this stage of the party’s development. Someone tasked with researching that one area. Someone who would have known how far the Environment Agency was under the Brussels thumb. Someone else tasked with financial matters who could go to interviews and explain exactly where the money is wasted.
You can’t do it all yourself, Nige. Nobody could.
We need to see that UKIP is not just Nigel Farage. We need to see some real expertise in the detail of each particular area.
I’ll still vote for UKIP even if they don’t manage to spread the load from one man. Even if it was only Nigel Farage standing for every seat, the alternatives are worse.
Yes, a swing to UKIP might mean Labour gets in again but really, does it matter any more which of those three gets in? There’s no difference between any of them anyway.
Might as well take a chance.
Well, early night for me. Up at horrible o’clock tomorrow. Fortunately it’s a one-off, I’ll have a more sensible 10 am start the rest of the week.
