Gordon Brown's Crime

I.C. - Gordon Brown Wanted Poster (2008)Please pass this wanted poster on. The crime to which it refers isn't the abolition of the 10p rate of income tax in the UK (CLICK). Making the poor poorer and the rich richer isn't a crime. It's the way of the world. New Labour, the Tories, Robert Mugabe; what the hell? No, this man's crime was to subscribe to new EU regulations which require all petrol and diesel sold in UK garages to contain biofuels, beginning on 15 April at 2.5% and rising to 5% by 2010 (title link). UN special rapporteur on the right to food Jean Ziegler has described biofuels as "a crime against humanity" (2007). Already food prices have risen in my local supermarkets by 10%, despite Government claims that inflation is much lower. The cost of food is rising across the world. Food riots in Egypt and Haiti have alarmed French ministers (CLICK). Even the World Bank is worried by the prospect of mass starvation (CLICK). Wildlife groups, being more in touch with nature than are fatcat politicians, have foreseen disaster (CLICK). Isn't it time you told your Euro MP that the crime of growing crops to burn is unacceptable?

What a perspicacious lady! I assume she reads Coxsoft Art News. I didn't even know we had a Green Euro MP. Euros tend to hide from the voters. I don't think BBC News knows we have any. They're getting no publicity in the forthcoming elections.

Unfortunately the Green mayoral candidate lost my vote when she signed up to that nonsense about calling an amnesty on London's one million illegal immigrants, along with Boris, Red Ken and that ex-rozzer. It's bad enough having illegals sleeping in our parks and on our streets. What are we going to do with them all if they become legal? Give 'em council houses we haven't got? Let 'em go on the dole? Legalize all the criminal activities they're engaged in: people smuggling, prostitution, white slaving, cannabis growing, pirating DVD's, tax evasion, lighting cooking fires in our parks?

Round 'em up and kick 'em out is the only sane answer. And police our borders so they can't return. Seems a Green solution to me. Why on earth did that soppy Green mayoral candidate sign up to an amnesty?
