Two events yesterday, each in their own way, struck chill in the hearts of ordinary mortals – as opposed to the increasingly vapid chattering classes whose detachment from reality seems to grow with each passing day.

The first was more immediate and recognisable - if long expected – the price hike in gas and electricity from another two utilities, following up from British Gas and EDF. Most consumers are now resigned to increases in their energy costs of up to 35 percent, and not a few are seriously asking how they are going to afford to heat their homes.

Given the huge price differential of natural gas between North America and Europe ($8 vs $18 MMBtus), I'm surprised a fleet of CNG tankers doesn't ply the Atlantic. That it would take Putin and his KGB cronies down a peg is an added benefit.

"...of such fatuity that, had we been able to boast of a media where the combined headcount divided by the sum of their individual IQs gave a number greater than one..."


This is a keeper, a gem.

..."Britain could become a net exporter of renewable energy "

...and a net importer of real energy.

Whatever merit there is in your arguments is undermined by your repugnant contempt for decency. Your article is painful to read for the unwarranted and immature malice it is laced with.

Mr Clegg a friend of yours? Perhaps you could pass on my best wishes.

BTW - it was extremely mature malice (unlike your grammar, which is anything but mature). You don't get to this stage without a whole lot of practice.

roly, listen to the ramblings of the Lib-Dims, you might then agree with the description of their leader. We live in Lid-Dim land, unfortunately, and get the propaganda rammed down our throats regularly, stupidity is nowhere near a description of them.

How interesting that your emotional response blankets your capacity for rational understanding. Even more interesting that you consider decent incompetence as a valid quality in a potential leader.

I too was amazed when I heard about this nonsense from Clegg. The man lives in a fantasy bubble. If a Jim Jones character came along and told the LibDums to drink his special potion, because it would be good for the planet, I'm sure they would all glug it down like the brainless cretins they are. Unfortunately they are going to take the rest of us down with them. God rot the buggers.

Re Derek Buxton:- stupidity is nowhere near a description of them.
I believe it was Napoleon Bonaparte who said "In politics, stupidity is not a handicap".

It is quite possible to understand the message whilst deploring the means of argument. A reasonable message rather lacking diplomacy in its delivery

It was not "lacking" in diplomacy, for heaven's sake. It was deliberately offensive, which is altogether a different thing - a reflection of the man's utter stupidity, beyond even that which we expect of our political classes.
