    THE CLIMATE PLEDGE
    Co-funded by Amazon

    • Sanctimonious
    • Woke virtue signalling
    • Cynical use of young children

    Here is an idea. How about Amazon starting to pay taxes on their profits in the local jurisdictions where they are made? Then those taxes can be spent on measures to combat climate change that help the people that generated those profits.

    Even better still, let us have a debate about what we as a nation should contribute toward the fantasy of zero carbon, rather than have it forced on us by the environmentalist groupthink lobby, who have sold it to our populist PM and have all the political parties in their thrall.

    Okay, so I am a quite financially secure old white male (that is a ‘racist misogynist’ in crazed Leftie speak) wanting to know when the rioting starts after that old white man was knifed to death by that young black man (that is ‘helped to pass away’ in crazed Leftie speak).

    Surely somebody has organised some suitably violent protesting. I can probably chip in with some Molotov cocktails if we have someone at whom to throw them. Anybody up for some smashing up public property and looting?

    The white footballers must come up with some gesture before kick off on Saturday. What about a salute raising an arm in the air?

    Is anybody planning on running a countdown to the greatest comedy event of the 21st Century? I refer of course to COP26, when SNP-run Glasgow in the heart of SNP-run Scotland will become a global laughing stock.

    I wonder how many members of Police Scotland will be going off on the sick after a couple of days of Extinction Rebellion and Insulate Britain being glued to the streets and buildings of the city centre. With delegates arriving from countries as impoverished as Jockland but with no vaccination programmes, expect NHS Scotland to be quickly overcome by plague victims afflicted with new variants that have not yet been recorded.

    People will look out from their massively overpriced hotel rooms to see drink and drug addled Weegies staggering around the streets trying to avoid the piles of uncollected rubbish as the rabid Leftie unions time their strikes to maximise the embarrassment to Wee Jimmy McKrankie.

    Some of us are immortal. We just don't like to brag about it.
