Max-Farquar-Website-Featured-Image Open Thread

This weeks Open Thread. I’m going to throw this one in to get things rolling: It was posted at Watts Up with That And Caratcus has been attempting to emulate Max’s Photoshop skills: More like the size of his “Little White Lies”… Read More »

Climate Week 2014


I hope you’re all looking forward to this years “Climate Week” – I know I am.  By which I mean it will give me yet another chance to rant and rage at the utter stupidity of this pointless, but apparently well funded, campaign. It was set up in 2010 by one Kevin Steele, who according to his Linkedin profile doesn’t ... Read More »

A Glimmer Of Hope

featured AnInconvenient Truth

I case any of you wondered, I am not (and never likely to be) a parent. There are many good and bad aspects to this, but one I don’t have any qualms about is bringing children up in the society we have now. The free and easy childhood most of us can remember is gone, unlikely to return. Instead it’s ... Read More »

Who Sold You This Then?


Many years ago (when Pontius was a pilot, as father used to say) mention the name John Cleese and it would conjure up the zany comedy show Monty Python’s Flying Circus – Fawlty Towers came later. To capitalise on their new found fame, Cleese and other members of the Python crew formed their own production company and made several industry ... Read More »

A Missed Opportunity


Bugger, talk about “Missed Opportunity” – I go out to the garden for 10 minutes, and as soon as I step back inside mother informs me she has just been pestered at the door by a man and woman team trying to get us to have cavity wall insulation. The fact that they were both wearing Hi-Viz jerkins should be ... Read More »

Friday Funnies by Microdave


Last week Friday Funnies touched on how easily an unwanted pregnancy could occur (particularly with a large pair of boobs staring you in the face), and suggested Blowjobs instead. Here’s more proof of the financial savings… More potential family problems: And another… Drink usually features in most peoples Friday enjoyment – it certainly does at this establishment: You won’t have ...

Another Bubble Bursts…

Windcrop Call In Liquidators Job Losses Wind Turbines Finance renewables bankrupt bubble bursts scam wind turbine feed in tariffs MD John Moore insolvency

You may remember my post last year about the small wind turbine installation company Windcrop. After the main bulk of comments a few more trickled in, two from people who claimed to know something about the company. Then on Tuesday was this astonishing comment claiming to be from the MD, John Moore: It’s difficult to know how to respond to ... Read More »

It’s all going pear shaped…

Wind Farm

For the “Renewables” industry. Cheerful Soul’s cartoons seemed to have been well received – the subject of renewable energy and the scams involved are one I have touched on several times. So on visiting the Caithness Windfarm Information Forum today I was  interested in their headline article. It reports how a group of individuals have scored a major victory in ... Read More »

Carbon Tax Cartoon Time


“And now for something completely different” – to quote Monty Python. MaxFarquar regular “Cheerful Soul” sent me a selection of cartoons from Down Under (the cartoons that is, not him), which poke fun at two faced PM, Julia Gillard. She has achieved notoriety for claiming that she would never introduce a Carbon Tax, and then doing precisely that once in ... Read More »

Climate Change – Are We Bothered?

Climate Change

Apparently not – Joe Public writes: Knowing the healthy level of scepticism shown by this blog’s esteemed readers about Climate Change, it should come as no surprise that ‘ordinary folk’ too, share similar beliefs. A somewhat unscientific but nevertheless plausible proxy for citizens’ concerns must be the popularity of Library Books. With that in mind, I undertook essential (but unfortunately ... Read More »

Friday Funnies by Microdave

Climate Control Shampoo

As I sit in front of the laptop on Thursday evening putting this together, the news is still dominated by the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby of the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, by a couple of scum masquerading as disciples of “The  Religion of Peace”.  I’m unsure if I should really go ahead with a “funny” post ...

Friday Funnies by Microdave


At last – we’ve been able to recruit a new editor, so the splelling misteaks shouldn’t occur again. Firstly, I have to read the riot act: I’m pleased that Caratacus liked the exploding grenade in last weeks Funnies, but before anyone makes sexist complaints about that clip and subsequent comments, please note that even blokes can make fools of themselves… ...

The british energy challenge

British Energy Challenge

A Guest post: It seems the UK population is not gullible-enough for this government’s liking. With a healthy, questioning attitude to most things scientific, we really do abide by the Royal Society’s motto:  ‘Nullius in verba’ which roughly translates as ‘take nobody’s word for it’. This is particularly so when it comes to so-called Global Warming; sorry, “Climate Change”. Immense ... Read More »

BBC – standards of journalism


A Guest post from Joe Public. “Auntie” BBC invested a fortune in wining & dining 28 so-called ‘climate experts’ to teach staff how to spread ‘Global Warming’ propaganda. One suggestion from that seminar was to get journalists to report stories with a consistent “Global Warming / Climate Change is happening’ theme. This could be achieved by either “not asking the ...
