Prince Charles doesn't need justification for his Genetically Modified Crops stance

Sunday, 17 August 2008 09:26

Environment Minister Phil Woolas thinks and says that Prince Charles should prove his assertions that GM crops are a possible environmental disaster. Phil Woolas should look to the record of politicians in general and realise that they never prove anything, all politicians mutter is their views without ever proving anything.

It's an example of Chard's Law which states that the more important a decision is, the less justification is needed for it.

Take for example an office worker wanting to spend a few pounds at work for some equipment or stationery that would make their job easier. They will have to go through supervisors and managers and justify the spending.

Now consider the decision to take the UK into a war in Iraq or Afghanistan, we're in there on the prime minister's whim, no forms to fill in, no budget constraints.

Like the law says, the more important the decision the less justification, and where politicians are making those decisions it's just down to what they think.

So Phil Woolas needs to sort out his own house and prove that GM crops are no threat or danger before attacking someone who will be remembered throughout history when the likes of him have been long forgotten.

 

'Daily Telegraph' echos our assessment

Wednesday, 13 August 2008 23:33

August 14th 2008, the 'Daily Telegraph' no less echos our use of the phrase 'cloud cuckoo land' to describe the Chancellor, Alistair Darling, in their editorial. However, the Telegraph is somewhat prone to using this same phrase about the government, so it's anyone's guess which of us got in first.

There's no doubt that this government is totally incompetent, failing, knows it's failing and hasn't the first idea what to do about it. There's only one answer, 'Listen to the people' - Gordon, get yourself to the palace in the morning and give us the general election that we crave so that we can see the back of you and the rest of your cronies!

If only inflation was the 4.4% the government admits

Tuesday, 12 August 2008 09:24

Does anyone actually believe the inflation figures the NuLabour put out? In reality inflation is much higher than the official figures, we all know it, and feel it every time we fill up our cars or buy groceries. Gordon Brown must think we're stupid.

What we need is a real measure of how far our money is going, taking into account everything that we spend, including council tax, VAT and all the other stealth taxes that this government has introduced, not a made-up figure that we all know comes from the same place as the old soviet tractor production figures.
