"Peter Hoskin says that only Ireland and Iceland have larger debts than the UK."

Er - no he doesn't: run your eye down the right hand side of his table.

His point is that our debt has risen much faster than in other countries. However, because of the golden economic inheritance, Labour have not YET delivered us to the creditors....

Interesting article by James Delingpole in the Telegraph - particularly for Labour MPs.

It appears that Dr Pachauri (who sits on the UN cimate panel) set up the The Energy And Resources Institute (recently renamed Tata Energy Research Institute) - funded by the huge Indian company Tata.

Interestingly Tata recently shutdown Corus steelworks in Yorkshire making Tata £1.2 billion from “carbon credits”.

Tata - whose boss has sucked up to Gordon Brown. You would for £1.2 billion wouldn't you?

It appears where the Indian industrial giant profits, British jobs are lost. But not because of competitive losses - but because of fraudent adjustments to data by scientists.

So are the oil companies really funding climate change skeptics ? - when is appears the steel companies are fundng alarmists - and JUST ONE INIDIAN company has gained £1.2 billion from their funding. Fraud? fraud? fraud?

Gordon Brown has been stupid enough to lose 1000s of jobs, not investigate the science and give £1.2 billion away to pay for it.

What an imprudent fool!!

Poor old Kerrychen. What a prime example of foot-stamping. It went on for ages, even spilling over into the comments.

Still, I don’t think she’s fundamentally evil, just a bit silly. Perhaps she just went into despair after seeing the latest pictures of Gordon of Kabul, this time wearing body armour, so as not to appear out of place again in his dark suit, sadly only managing to look like the lowest budget Dr Who monster ever.

I cannot see anything remotely embarrassing about that post by Kerry. On the other hand I have been reading her blog a long time now and it is fairly clear she has become a lot more careful about what she writes since she became a whip.
