I know plenty of folks who would describe themselves as an 'environmentalist'. Very few, if any, share that view.

Animal rights activists maybe. Vegan fundamentalists certainly. Bosses of global corporations seeing profit in fake meat, most definitely. But environmentalists, no.

George is a pr*ck. For the purposes of this discussion, the environmental movement vis a vis food, farming and the environment is represented by Sustain. Have a look at their website. Put 'George Monbiot' in the search engine. He doesn't feature. He's just a gobshite self-publicist.

The National Beef Association are going to be p!ssed off. Having their proposal for a £100 carbon tax on OTM cattle kicked into the long grass. Shows what a sorry state the job is in when we have to rely on Boris to protect us from our own representative bodies. That's where attention needs to be focused; getting UK ags spokespeople to stop working on behalf of the cartel and start representing farmers.

Ignore all this BS. Its just college graduates playing a 'Who is the most woke?' game. It has zero implications for people in the real world because its utterly divorced from anything approaching the real world. As we are finding with the energy situation right now, eventually the word soup that passes for government policy hits the buffers of cold hard reality. And when it does all the fine words will get thrown out of the window in a mad panic, because people who have votes might just be getting a bit hacked off with having no heating, no lighting, hardly any food in the shops and what food there is going up in price weekly.

I belive I've heard something about this mentioned in a book before? Oh yeah I remember, studied it at school, I think the term was "thought police" or would "Minitrue" be more apt. As an aside I've heard quite a few of the books I studied at school are banned in parts of the USA 1984 being one of them.
 
It's making the public accept that they have to change their lifestyle that no one in power will face up to. Govt MP on the box earlier today said that Joe Public will not have to foot the bill for reducing carbon emissions!

Who else is going to pay FFS? It's time the Politicians told the public a few home truths!

People don't need to change their lifestyles. Its not in anyones gift to force us to change our lifestyle.
