  • Comment on: Government to axe BBC Trust and hand powers to Ofcom

    ian harris's comment | Sat, 27 Jun 2015 11:56 am

    let's hope OFCOM can erase the BBC's all-pervading left-leaning, metropolitan Guardianista views on politics, global warming, equality/diversity and just about everything else

  • Comment on: EU slams UK’s wind subsidies cut as “mind boggling”

    ian harris's comment | Wed, 24 Jun 2015 4:35 pm

    the only lie is that heavily subsidized wind power can ever replace electricity from fossil fuels or nuclear. Climate change fanatics have convinced EU politicians who are not scientists that we are all going to die. Global warming is not happening, and man-made emissions are not causing it. In the name of phony, self-interested science we are crucifying our industries with stupid, unrealisable targets, whilst India and China power on using coal. Get over it!

  • Comment on: The government is lying to us about wind farms, says green energy boss Dale Vince

    If that were so, the government would continue to subsidize wind farms, all of which are privately owned. In fact, the government has realised, in face of moans from Greens, that turbines are an inefficient way of generating electricity, as the wind often fails to blow when needed, and expensive and carbon-emitting back-up is required.The only non-carbon-emitting currently available is nuclear, and anti-nuclear nutters have managed to prevent nuclear stations being built. Now the situation is becoming desperate. There are no 'renewables' capable of keeping the lights on without conventional power station, whether coal, gas or wood fired, other than nuclear.

  • Comment on: Better deal or Brexit: business leaders urge wholesale change or EU exit

    Considering what a large percentage of all income tax top earners, bankers especially, pay, this comment is just class envy nonsense
