Fifty days to save the world ...

Mr Brown suggests that we probably won't, after all, need any lovely new power stations to make electricity to run Britain, because if we don't do something about climate change by 9th December 2009 we'll all either drown or burn.
Gordon Brown said negotiators had 50 days to save the world from global warming and break the "impasse".
Maybe those eco-warriors are right after all, maybe the Police should have let them go ahead and shut down Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station instead of setting their nasty dogs with big teeth onto them, because Mr Brown is bound to be right. Al Gore says so.

Aren't we lucky to have a prophet like Mr Brown leading our country, whose foresight will save the world from an environmental catastrophe, in the same way as his financial acumen saved the world (including Britain) from economic disaster.

So you see, Mrs Rigby really hopes that when Mr Brown was talking about his "50 days to save the world" he wasn't referring to the almost 50 days until he and other leaders will be getting together for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen - which runs from 7th to 18th December 2009.

Mrs R wonders which day Mr Brown is due to speak - it wouldn't be 9th December would it?

This rush job to get the Climate Change Treaty signed sounds awfully like the TARP rush job. And we know where that led.

The bl**dy treaty is bad news for the world - economic devastation. (Follow the links and watch the videos). It heralds in a new cash cow for governments and dosh for their pals, while impoverishing the rest of us financially and stripping us of more freedoms.

Fight the damned thing for all it's worth!
