I think the Chinese should all jump up and down synchronously (sin-synchronous elevation shifting) to speed up the Earth's rotation and prevent these devastating earthquakes. Then the climate band wagon will have no leg to stand on.

What's the betting the climate band wagon blames global warming?

You forgot to include Trump and BREXIT.

With the Greens being blamed in Germany for preventing another Merkel coalition forming, these Green political earthquakes just keep happening.

Since the ecotards have managed to inveigle themselves into a position of supra political moral authority it's to be expected that lame and unimaginative politicians seeking to portray themselves as doing good works pluck suggestions from the Green smorgasboard of disasters and doom-ery.

If Hammond goes for a plastic tax - it's the beginning of the end for the Tories - who have a whole raft of more pressing and important issues to address - that the chancellor is paying court and pandering to the eco-loons means - I reckon ... that significant eco-loonery is present inside the executive branches of UK gubbermint.

Naive and stupid? nah... cowardly and not up to the job morelike. Like some local council out of its depth - they are desperate to throw up smoke and distraction to hide their shortcomings.

So we're due to have 5 years of higher earthquake activity. Might there be volanic activity too? What's the betting the climate band wagon blames global warming?

I am with you and James Dyson, the least we need is a credible threat of no deal and go to WTO rules. The EU will never give us a good deal unless they believe we are serious, witness the Cameron negotiation they never believed we would vote to leave. We need a strong leader now. I think outing the wets in the party was a serious error now that their position has been made public they are very unlikely to go back on it although pressure from the vote to leave local parties could have an effect. The "Elephant in the room" with regard to NI border not being discussed it the possibility that the Republic will follow us out of the EU especially if they become significant net contributors and lose control of their financial policy. The person IMHO talking the most sense is Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Have revolting Greens caused Merkel's failure to form a coalition?

If there is a fresh German election, there is time for the Germans to reflect further on where Green policies have taken Germany as the winter festive period sets in.

EU European Council President Donald Tusk: UK must "Obey"

EU Threat To Withhold Britain’s £4.4 Billion Budget Rebate, Demands UK Pays £53 Billion ‘Brexit Bill’ in Two Weeks

After an EU summit in Sweden Yesterday, European Council President Donald Tusk renewed the threat and issues a two-week deadline for the UK to obey.

He said that “much more progress” was needed on the bill and issue of the Irish border, with British concessions to be delivered “at the beginning of December at the latest”.

He went on to mock Brexit Secretary David Davis for suggesting it was time for the EU side to also make some concessions. “I can say only that I really appreciate Mr. Davis’s English sense of humour,” Mr. Tusk added.

PM May, as every day passes the EU reinforces the belief it is a avaricious dysfunctional dictatorship; stop wasting time & money - Leave now

OK it's the Daily Mail but this is an observation that really is beyond challenge - so the BBC, Guardian , Independent et al will studiously ignore it.

95% of ocean plastic debris comes from 10 rivers in developing countries

But ecotards + politicians all over the place look to punish their local populations for using plastic....

It's old news, but not been reported by MSM until now to damage Hammond's upcoming socialist budget - good.

UK Govt Prepares For Tax on Disposable Plastics — While 95 Per Cent of Pollution Comes From Asia, Africa

Yet the move to punish British consumers — who already engage in recycling at some of the highest rates in the world — comes just weeks after German academics published research on the sources of plastic waste in the oceans worldwide, showing almost all of marine plastic waste comes from Asia and Africa.
...
Hammond’s move to tax plastics further comes as his Conservative party attempts to appeal to voters beyond their base following a disastrous snap election result and waning popularity. Besides the sop to Britain’s green lobby, Hammond is also expected to deliver giveaways to young voters in the form of interest rate cuts on student loan repayments, and the launch of a so-called millennial railcard, extending the availability of discounted rail fares from 25 to 30 year olds.

"Conservative party attempts to appeal to voters beyond their base" - which doesn't work unless it is a tax/regulation policy which makes everyone richer - as Mrs T proved - pandering to Greens will never persuade them to vote Conservative.

Why are the "Not The Conservative" Party so naive and stupid?

Stewgreen (Nov 19, 2017 at 4:47 PM & 5:29 PM): as I have pointed out before, these are all the trademarks of the Frankfurt School. Once you accept this, and that they have successfully infiltrated so deeply into the establishment, you can then prepare counter-attacks against them; forewarned is forearmed. Sadly, you probably will not, and will join many others in scoffing “Conspiracy theorist…”

@Pcar Malaga merely to deal with my stupid bank who insisted I opened a current account to go along with my investment account.
And then after 15 years suddenly put €100/year charges on the dormant current account, and tell me no they can't pay that by transferring money from the investment account unless I come to the branch.
And I've been a £500 shareholder in that bank for 20 years.
