Not goodbye, good riddance

So Huhne the buffoon the green loon finally bowed to the inevitable and resigned his cabinet post for bolloxing up the UK's energy supplies. Not because the environmental lunacy of the policies he was promoting, but because he'd been caught out by telling porkies to plod over a driving offence given to his ex when it was fairly obvious after her admission to being somewhere she could not possibly have been on the day of the incident.
Chris Huhne has quit as energy secretary after learning he was to be charged with perverting the course of justice over a 2003 speeding case.
His ex-wife Vicky Pryce will face the same charge in relation to claims she accepted his penalty points.
Mr Huhne, Lib Dem MP for Eastleigh, said he was innocent but would stand down to "avoid distraction".
Business Minister Ed Davey will replace him but Nick Clegg said he hoped Mr Huhne could return to government.
Essex Police have been investigating the speeding points claims for eight months.
Sadly though the envirolunacy that seems to believe that it has a right to wreck lives and industry carries on...
Friends of the Earth's executive director Andy Atkins said Mr Huhne had championed the environment in an administration that had "shown little enthusiasm" for keeping David Cameron's pledge to be the greenest government ever. He added: "The new energy secretary must stand firm against Chancellor George Osborne's anti-green agenda and make the case that protecting our environment is a way to boost not hinder our economic recovery."
Sadly Huhne has been replaced by another Lib Dem so we cannot expect much in the way of reform or common sense when it comes to power generation or a removal of the green levy which adds 6% on to our power bills as we all sit here shivering in the cold winter some of us looking at the snow which was supposed to become a rarity and wondering why the government insists on us paying through the nose for inefficient power generation schemes that clearly don't work when the wind doesn't blow or the sun doesn't shine.
The enviroloons simply don't get it, if it becomes a choice of being warm or feeling smug that we're helping the environment, the vast majority of us will opt for feeling warm and throw another endangered species on the fire.
Yes we do care about the environment, no we don't want mass pollution, but we know a fraudulent lie in the name and shape of global warming and climate alarmism when we hear or read it. It's getting colder, we know it, the records show it, we're likely heading towards a mini ice age as happened in the 1600's when the Thames froze in winter. So we look to the government to lead the way towards power generation schemes that actually work and don't cost us an arm and a leg to pay for.
The environmental movement by attaching itself to global warming shot itself badly in the foot, perhaps they should simply put up and shut up for a while.

Things will not change. How else can Cameron continue to justify giving his father-in-law £1000 per day of taxpayers' money if he did not continue with the lunatic green policies?
