In other news UK Government has issued guidance on walking pet pigs .... it's not like there are some other rather more pressing issues they might be tasked with is it?

- You can’t keep a pet pig at your home until you get a county parish holding (CPH) number from the Rural Payments Agency (RPA).

- You need to get a licence from your APHA to walk your pig outside your home or premises.
- You must have your licence with you whenever you’re walking your pig, and you’ll need to renew it every year.

- You can’t feed pigs catering waste from any domestic or commercial kitchen, including kitchens that only cater for vegetarians.

Imagine the laws & rules Gov't would impose if dogs, cats, hamsters, goldfish first became pets in 2016:

- You can’t feed dogs catering waste from any domestic or commercial kitchen, including kitchens that only cater for vegetarians

Thus, potential fine or jail for giving Fido an emptied tin/yoghurt-tub/cake-mix-bowl to lick clean

Gov't - F*** Off and stop interfering in personal decisions

Apparently someone called John Hayes who's being - ironically imho - called the Transport Minister is threatening compulsory EV charging points at retail petrol outlets across the UK

John Hayes, Transport Minister for May's Socialist Party Gov't:

(2) Regulations under subsection (1) may, for example—
(a) require large fuel retailers or service area operators to provide public charging points;
(b) require public charging points to be available for use at prescribed times;
(c) require services or facilities prescribed by the regulations to be provided in connection with public charging points

Were Shell, BP, ESSO, Jet, Tesco et al forced to open petrol stations by Gov't Law?

No - they opened them hoping people would buy what they sold.

Same applies to EV charging points

Gov't - F*** Off and stop interfering in free market decisions

YP letter from Andy Kiss, Drax CEO
"our independently audited figures for carbon savings with biomass do take account of our entire supply chain"
"Our biomass-fuelled generating units deliver carbon savings of 68% compared to if they use gas, 80%... coal"

My mistake this research is from activist RichardFuller
not the more sensible Dr David Fuller

I woke up this morning to the BBC telling me
"New research shows that 9million people/yr die from air pollution"
Fortunately this research comes from Dr David Fuller
who came on to explain that
"92% of those deaths happen in poor and developing countries"

I note later that the headline was changed "pollution contributes to 50,000 deaths in the UK"
which is incorrect since pollution contributes to almost all natural deaths (ie reduces a few days of all our lives)

BBC has now twisted the story to Pollution linked to one in six deaths
different research ?
By the way their own chart does not show 1 in 6 for the UK, it shows 1 in 12 with the UK being well down the list of risk countries

I filled in the ASA complaint form

Seems that @tdecastella lived in France
but now lives in the UK and is illegally driving a car with French plates
British residents must have UK plates.

@Pcar how do we prove that the page is static
it could conceivably be "generated on the fly"
However Google doe not pick up such pages normally
and I can see that pagedoes come up on a Google search and is in Googles cache here
I'll tweet to the ASA.

Who regulates 10:10 ?
Its page has no about us saying whether they are a charity or no

Wiki "10:10 is a charity that enables people to take practical action on climate change, and combines these local actions "
