stewgreen - re the UK Sky coverage, the Committee hearings posted here not long ago where media reps were questioned included a Sky representative who is an unabashed greenie. She made no bones about it in her testimony.

OTOH, Sky in Australia is much more objective and credible. Sky, and its political editor, were chosen for the first time ever over the ABC by both major parties to run the Leaders' Debates before the last election.

The myth of the leaden hand of Murdoch on everything he owns dies hard. The truth is more complicated.

LB

It is an example of the moral standard of the present day "establishment" and they have the gall to question why the populace do not "believe" anything they utter.

Jesus' Sky News is even worse than the BBC
- A clear simple message : video 1 shows a globe surface changing shades from green thru yellow to orange and thru to to red as a clock counts up to 2100.
Video 2 : lots of shots of extreme weather to finish up in a flooded pub in Mansfield, which was without doubt caused by climate change.
- In the real world not even the IPCC has published any peer reviewed science papers with any evidence that there really any more extreme weather than normal.
I can only think that to push such an alternative reality the Sky guy must have a Greenpeace girlfriend and a salary that depends on advertising from wind farm corps and the WWF.

Interesting local council election results from yesterday, note that voting was after the Godfrey Bloom 'outrage' that the media used to disrupt the reporting of policy at the recent UKIP party conference.

From a ConHome poster's vote analysis:-

In the 10 local elections where UKIP contested they gained the following % of the votes

Devon 15.2%
Tendering 21.9%
Mole 13.3%
Forest of Dean (Red) 23.5%
West Sussex 32.2%
Barnsley 26.4%
Forest of Dean (Clifford) 29.3%
Sevenoaks 35.7%
Banbury 16%
Blackpool 22.8%

Thus giving UKIP an average poll share of 23.45% .

Sevenoaks was a UKIP gain from Labour

Clearly rattling the Conservatives. On BBC Southeast TV News Cameron was wheeled out trying to claw back the strong UKIP presence in Kent with promises of 'we hear you' or words to that effect.

And followed by a piece with Greg Barker saying he is now more confident that fracking is safe, having just visited Pennsylvania to see how its done for himself. )But the BBC of course adding some wacko frack protestors in for their last word.

- I have always thought Judith Curry a weak appeaser who doesn't properly shout "emperor has no clothes" when she should
but the alarmists have pushed her too far now ...see her essay on the Magic 95% basically she says "It's just a bloody GUESS, it's not proper science" exasperated face. (my paraphrasing)
link : 95% (?)
- and she republishes Joshes 5 Questions cartoon - wow now she's a proper skeptic

- Australians A nasty sneer at Tony Abbot, in a BBC comedy radio show.

fan of old racist, sexist white men ? "give us a twirl luv & fetch me a tinny"
It's just a sneer without any comedy value, so I don't know who authorised it. (it's only on the BBC website for another 48 hours)
- Normally on NewsJack people send in their own sketch ideas and the producer selects the best ones for the team to make.
here's a better one
- 2015 Jeremy Clarkson is an MP in for parliament (future environment minister ?)
..and Chris Huhne has become the new Stig (or rather his wife has)

@Phillip Bratby , oh Pity if it seems Tamsin Edwards didn't speak up for the truth. Maybe she has been leant on. When I met the No 10 policy guy I recommended, that he look her up.
