She's Right, Actually... (14 August 2019)
Caroline Lucas "is more right than she knows. Brexit is not, of course, a straight-out war between the sexes; whatever nonsense she claims, women took prominent positions on both sides of the Brexit debate before and after the referendum. However, Brexit can be interpreted as a rebellion of a culturally still masculine majority against the effete, feminised culture of the elites. The endeavour involves the masculine qualities of risk-taking, courage and problem-solving - virtues which have been largely excised from today's society in favour of nannying and banning. Lucas's own green agenda is of course the acme of it all: eschewing all logic in favour of lunatic virtue-signalling..."
An All-Female Cabinet? How Sexist Can You Be? (14 August 2019)
Green Party MP Caroline Lucas has made the ludicrous proposal to form an all-female 'national unity government' to stop 'no deal' Brexit and hold a second referendum ... 'Difficulty, intractable problems have found the beginning of resolution thanks to the leadership of women' claims Lucas. Well, not Brexit so far, Maybe it's time to let the men have a turn? Except that would be to buy into the ridiculous identity politics idea that people should be picked on the basis of irrelevant features such as sex, race or sexual preference rather than their suitability and aptitude for the role..."
Whatever Happened to Shrewd, Charming Women in Politics? (14 August 2019)
Caroline Lucas "has called for an all-woman Cabinet to defy the decision of the nation made in 2016 ... How would Miss Lucas, whom the BBC promote as an expert on climatology despite her degree in 19thC feminist literature, react to a demand for an all-male Cabinet?..."
Caroline Lucas Apologises for Proposing 'All-White' Cabinet (12 August 2019)
"The former leader of the Green Party has apologised after a deluge of criticism from the left for her silly season 'unity government' proposal ... Read her full statement here:..." / Reader's comment: "[I]f we have a 'disastrous' no-deal Brexit, that would mean a significant reduction in economic activity and hence in CO2 emissions. Isn't that what [the Greens] want?"
Lefties Turn on Caroline Lucas (12 August 2019)
"Caroline Lucas managed to achieve the remarkable feat of uniting right and left against her with the daftest proposal of silly season so far for an all-woman (and all-white) emergency 'cabinet of national unity' to take over and block no deal ... Just women Caroline likes though, not women like Priti Patel, Liz Truss, Gisela Stuart, or apparently Diane Abbott. Corbynistas who used to go dewy-eyed at the mere mention of Lucas have now been rapidly unpersoning her..." / Reader's comment: "As usual, the lefties all turn on each other because the game of identity politics is all about being the last person standing, whatever the cost. One of President Obama's few wise words on this issue - that the circular firing squad is at work again"
The War on Democracy Must Be Diverse! (12 August 2019)
"Lucas, the ostensibly leftish leader of the Green Party, proposed forming an entirely undemocratic 'emergency cabinet' made up of her and her exclusively female chums. Its job would be to trash the thing that 17.4 million of us voted for - leaving the EU. And how did the woke left respond to Lucas's lunacy? By pointing out that her proposed cabinet consisted entirely of white women! Yes, it wasn't the fact that Lucas was essentially proposing a coup against democracy that got the woke lobby's back up - it was that there were no black faces in her clique against the masses..." / Readers' comments: "I wonder if it has occurred to the men who support The Greens that feminist identitarians like Lucas hold them in such low regard? Of course, they'll deny it but you only have to look at what she's saying to understand what she thinks" / "It's funny, isn't it? How much more clearly do they want her to say that she thinks they are inferior? ... on she prattles"
Caroline Lucas's Coup Against the People (12 August 2019)
"The winner in this week's race to the bottom is surely Green Party MP, Caroline Lucas. Her plan for an all-woman cabinet of national unity is as deranged and desperate as any dreamt up so far ... Lucas may litter her article with references to democracy, but riding roughshod over the views of citizens is integral to the green agenda. The Green Party needs Britain to remain in the EU in order to pass the environmental legislation it wants to secure. Its members know that if they had to put their proposals before a national electorate they would never win support for them, no matter how much they talk of emergencies or hide behind Greta Thunberg. Lucas makes the link between Brexit and the environment explicit:..."
Green by Name, Red by Nature (12 August 2019)
"[W]e see clearly how the Green party have earned the nickname 'the Watermelons' as they are green on the outside and red on the inside ... Caroline Lucas has called for the creation of a parallel 'cabinet of woman' to interfere in or halt Brexit ... The list of names is a veritable smorgasbord of the sort of anti-democrats that have plagued the Brexit process for three years now ... Ms Lucas' call for a 'cabinet of women' is not just nasty, authoritarian and anti-democratic, it is also politically and historically illiterate..."
The Riff Raff Are Just So Awful, Darling (26 April 2019)
"Few events demonstrate the hypocrisy that lies at the heart of modern liberalism than Dame Emma Thompson flying from LA to London to tell all the little people that they must de-industrialise within seven years and return to the economic and social dark age. Of course, it is the little people who must do all the returning. The little people who are routinely branded racist, homophobic, misogynist - Christian! Asked if she flew economy class from LA to reduce her own 'carbon' footprint, Ms Antoinette replied, 'I b***** well don't, no.' Suffice that she flaunts how much she cares about the planet: Perish the thought she should consider doing what she actually preaches. The liberal elites in this country and elsewhere have wrapped themselves in a cloak of moral authority that accepts no argument ... always remember that they are good, and you are bad..."
Inside the Dotty Mind of Green Queen Caroline (13 December 2018)
"Were political polls and surveys always accurate, Hillary Clinton would currently be in the White House thumbing her nose at the 'basket of deplorables'. And Theresa May, with a thumping Commons majority, might - just might - have left intact the red lines drawn in her Lancaster speech of January 2017 and not faced a confidence vote. Despite having come to expect the unexpected, earlier this week it was a jolt to read that a survey by YouGov has startlingly declared 'Britain's most well-regarded party' to be, wait for it, the Greens..."
2017: Turning the Tide on Green C**p (27 December 2017)
"Eco-miserabilism suffered some welcome setbacks this year. Nothing vexed greens across the world in 2017 more than Donald Trump's inauguration. Before Trump, climate change seemed to have been cemented into American and global political life. It was central to President Obama's global outlook. But at the same time, it had become a symbol of decadence - part of the cosy consensus of political elites and tech and media billionaires, completely detached from ordinary Americans' lives and interests..."
Mass-Murdering Bureaucrat Tells Trump How to Run EPA (10 March 2017)
"Far from weakening the Environmental Protection Agency, Donald Trump needs to beef it up. Or so says a guy in the New York Times by the name of William D. Ruckelshaus. ... In a March 7 op-ed in the Times, Ruckelshaus writes: 'A strong and credible regulatory regime is essential to the smooth functioning of our economy.' Interesting use of the word 'credible' there from the worthless bureaucrat who, perhaps more than anyone, embodies what is so very wrong with the EPA and why it so urgently needs to be reformed..."
Anti-Flying Activists: Plummy-Voiced Enemies of Progress (21 February 2017)
"This morning three young greens blocked the tunnel to Heathrow terminals 1, 2, and 3 in protest against plans to build a third runway. To put it another way: three anti-flying activists ... those most entitled and eco-pompous of millennials, caused delays to thousands of people. ... But then, what are the needs and pleasures of common people who take to the skies in comparison with the haughty virtue of the environmentally switched on? ... The activists are linked to Plane Stupid, a little group of eco-worriers..."
Green Party Turfed Out Of Brighton and Hove (10 May 2015)
"The Green Party has been flushed out of power in Brighton and Hove, losing more than half its seats on the south coast council. Labour now have the largest group on the council with 23 seats, but are five short of an overall majority. The Green party has 11, down from 23..."
My Gloriously 'Brain-Fading' Day with Alice in Green Land (08 March 2015)
"There is something mildly amusing about a party that insists on meditative breaks, has a keynote speaker identified as 'a non-binary person from Belarus' and chairwomen who say things like: 'I would like to hear from someone who does not identify as a man'. ... This is a party that wants to ban the monarchy, House of Lords, much of the Armed Forces, free schools, foie gras and fur - while freeing up drugs, borders, brothels and ... [allow] people to join terror groups such as Islamic State. ... free university undergraduate education, ... free social care, free universal childcare, 500,000 extra new homes and a basic income for everyone costing almost three times the budget of the NHS. Since they also want to end economic growth, I asked their press team how these policies would be paid for..."
The Green Party is a Looney Tunes Alliance of Druids and Trots (06 March 2015)
"[M]any Greens aren't really green. They're red. It's not just that the party has become a bolt hole for every socialist and anarchist who thinks Labour is too Left-wing - their central philosophy is, itself, far more futurist than it is conservationist. A true conservationist wants to preserve the environment that they've inherited, along with its traditions, farming, heritage, old architecture and ancient ways of living. By contrast, the Green Party wants to reshape the environment to reflect a socialist purpose..."
Green Policies Are Mad - No Wonder Natalie Bennett Dried Up (26 February 2015)
"Articulacy is an essential requirement for a front-rank politician. Someone who is hopeless at communicating or making an argument has no business at the top of public life. A nervous, unintelligible representative is about as useful as a surgeon with trembling hands or a scaffolder with a fear of heights. ... Bennett was so useless, not because of her nerves or inexperience, but because she was trying to put forward crackpot, extremist policies completely alien to the British public. It was the wild, profligate, immoral absurdity of her party's plans that made her brain freeze..."
The Secret Behind the Green Party Membership Surge (02 February 2015)
"With the 'Green Surge' confounding Westminster pundits as the United Kingdom's own radical enviro-mentalist wealth redistributing party overtakes both the Liberal Democrats and UKIP in membership, it is only reasonable some questions should be asked of where all these new members are coming from..."
Putting Green Party Policy Under the Microscope (29 January 2015)
"I recently had a good read through [the] policy papers in the Green party website, and although one or two things I liked (the Green Party is opposed to EMU and the European single currency), many policies seemed controversial and even irresponsible. It is not hyperbole to say that if their policies were introduced in full, the UK would rapidly become unrecognisable, and teeter on the edge of financial ruin. Here are some of the policies I initially noted:..."
Yes, the Greens Are a Joke - But Not a Funny Or Harmless One (21 January 2015)
"The media chattering classes ... present the Green Party as a viable, vibrant and credible force in UK politics in the approach to the General Election. Here are some reasons why I think they are wrong..."
"[W]ith hopes if winning three seats in the general election, Natalie Bennett believes her party will take part in a 'confidence and supply' arrangement, propping up a fragile minority administration in exchange for key policies. What might they demand?..."
Lunacy of the Town That Turned Green (27 April 2014)
"[T]his is the greenest city in Britain, the launchpad for an attempt to reshape the nation's political landscape - and the result is a dismal farce..."
Some Jokes Are No Laughing Matter (08 March 2013)
"As a mere man, I was wondering how I might spend today, International Women's Day. Why is there no International Men's Day, by the way? I suppose for the same reason there's no Association of White Police Officers. Anyhow, it's all settled, I'll make my way to the London Science Museum's Exhibition of Gamification in Service of the Environment..."
Fascist Green Party Expels Christian Councillor Over Gay [sic] Marriage (11 September 2012)
"This is proof (if any were needed) that the Green Party is the most utterly and offensively intolerant of all political parties. Good grief, even the the BNP opens its membership to the odd black or brown-skinned person who subscribes to its political views. But God help you if you're a tree-hugging, whale-saving, global-warming-affirming Christian with 'traditional' views on marriage..."
The Green Party ('Green' as in Naive) (09 September 2012)
"The Greens, somehow, have come to be thought of as the 'nice' party, and their general philosophical stance - anti-Western, anti-national and anti-science - has for some inexplicable reason been deemed to be acceptable; an acceptance indicative of a strong current of generalised cultural masochism and misplaced ethnic and national 'guilt' that has polluted mainstream thought and discourse in Britain today..."
Water Consumers: Unrepresented and Abused (05 July 1012)
"There was a time when, in theory at least, MPs were the protectors of our liberties, and environmental campaigners were just that, campaigners. Now, it seems, the two groups have combined to promote agendas which has nothing to do with our interests. The agenda for today is water metering..."
How Environmentalism Turned to the Dark Side (08 June 2012)
"Over the best part of the last two decades, the twin delusions that we're destroying the planet and that we have to completely restructure civilisation to somehow save it, have taken root and gripped the popular psyche of the West..."
Nazi Greens - An Inconvenient History (18 May 2012)
"Two disturbing stories recently on the greens. First Spiegel magazine runs an article on the rise of extremist right-wing environmentalism in Germany. Then The Observer newspaper reveals that, in the name of preventing 'climate change', British aid money to India is paying for the forced sterilization of poor people. These are shocking stories. But not so shocking to those familiar with the story of Nazi environmentalism. Let's step back in time..."
The Rise of Leftist Eco-Fascism (02 May 2012)
"Threats to life and limb, property destruction, public smears, curtailing free speech and imposing un-democratic regulatory laws are associated with totalitarianism. The green-shirts of eco-fascism fit neatly into this category..."
Green Myths: We Have to Get Back to a Natural Life (04 November 2011)
"We live under this pervasive avalanche of propaganda that's telling us we're the single fly in the ointment that's killing an Earth that was somehow an Eden before we appeared to spoil the whole thing; if only we could change. Yes, if only we could change..."
Where the Greens Recruit (31 October 2010)
"James Patterson explains why universities are churning out whole regiments of Greens voters..."
Beware Green Utopianism (24 August 2010)
"[T]here is nothing new under the sun, and we have seen utopians come and go for a number of centuries now. And the historical record is not looking too good. Utopianism usually fails miserably, and/or impose huge costs on the hapless victims of it. The Greens' blueprint for utopia falls into this very category. Thus we need to learn the lessons of history here. Instead of becoming the guinea pigs of their social experimentation, let's recall the lessons of the past..."
Socialism and Radical Environmentalism (12 December 2009)
"Old, failed ideologies seldom are killed off easily, or die off only once. They have a nasty habit of showing up again and again in various guises with new titles. But the same old discredited notions and failed philosophies keep resurfacing, hoping to take in more gullible recruits..."
Damn this False God! (5 November 2009)
"Have you ever noticed how closely green zealotry resembles religious fanaticism? Well, now the law has, in effect, recognised environmentalism as a religion..."
"It's sick, it's disgraceful, it's offensive, it's crudely manipulative. But it's also a devilishly effective piece of eco-fascist propaganda to rival those 'stranded' polar bears on the melting ice flow or Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth..."
The Green Agenda (No Date. Possibly 2007)
"We should all want to be wise and careful stewards of the beautiful planet we call home. But most of us realise that humans in general are not being good stewards. We are wasteful with our natural resources and have reduced biodiversity. Therefore, when we read about groups and organisations calling for a 'green revolution' and a new relationship between humanity and nature it is easy to agree with their ideas. However, certain aspects of the modern green movement that is permeating every segment of our society are not about protecting the environment..."
The Green Agenda: The First Global Revolution (No Date. Possibly 2007)
"The environmental movement has been described as the largest ad most influential social phenomenon in modern history. From relative obscurity just a few decades ago it has spawned thousands of organisations and claims millions of committed activists. ... Where did this phenomenon come from, how did it rise to such prominence, and more importantly, where is it going?..."
The Green Agenda: The Great Shift (No Date. Possibly 2007)
"Environmental activists often claim that modern human civilisation is 'destroying the earth' and our harmful activities are overwhelming Gaia's ability to regenerate 'herself'..."
The Green Agenda: The Green Economy (No Date. Possibly 2007)
"The global green movement places very little value on the modern industrial society that has produced huge improvements in economic prosperity, health care, human rights, education and standards of living. In fact, the green movement hates and fears western-style capitalism..."
Environmentalism is New Communism (20 March 2007)
"As someone who lived under communism for most of my life I feel obliged to say that the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity at the beginning of the 21st century is not communism or its various softer variants. Communism was replaced by the threat of ambitious environmentalism..."

The Little Green Book of Eco-Fascism (2013)
"Do you believe we should bomb our economy back to the dark ages? Carpet our beautiful countryside with bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco-crucifixes? Indoctrinate our kids with scary North Korea-style propaganda nonsense in order to deal with the alleged perils of 'climate change'? Neither does [this author]..."
"If global warming isn't real then how come the ice caps are melting? Why would all the world's top scientists lie to us? What exactly is so wrong with biofuels, wind farms, carbon taxes, sustainability and preserving scarce resources for future generations? And what about Bangladesh, the drowning Maldives and all those endangered polar bears? [This author] has all the answers - and they're not the ones Al Gore would like you to hear. In Watermelons [this author] tells the shocking true story of how a handful of political activists, green campaigners and voodoo scientists engineered the world's biggest, most expensive and destructive outbreak of mass hysteria - one that threatens the very fabric of Western Civilisation. As the world stands on the brink of a new Great Depression, [this author's] message could not be more timely or urgent. In order to save our planet must we really surrender to the green movement's misanthropic tyranny? Or might there be a better way?"
The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World (2001)
"The idea for this book was born in a bookstore in Los Angeles in February 1997. I was standing leafing through Wired Magazine and read an interview with the American economist Julian Simon, from the University of Maryland. He maintained that much of our traditional knowledge about the environment is quite simply based on preconceptions and poor statistics. Our doomsday conceptions of the environment are not correct. He stressed that he only used official statistics, which everyone has access to and can use to check his claims. I was provoked. I'm an old left-wing Greenpeace member and had for a long time been concerned about environmental questions..."
"Fascism? Really? Isn't that a bit harsh, a bit demeaning, a bit reductive of all those caring, well-meaning environmentalists out there who just want to make the world a better place?
"Clearly you have much to learn about how the green movement rolls.
"Here's Jonah Goldberg's definition from his highly readable Liberal Fascism:
"Pretty much everything in that description accords with everything you'll read about environmentalist philosophy (and action) ... The only differences are that eco-fascism is not nationalistic but supra-nationalistic - that is, its ultimate aims are towards a One World Government; and that, inevitably as a consequence of this, there is no single leader you could cite as the movement's figurehead.
"But if you had to, I'd probably go for either Maurice Strong or George Soros."
