George Soros again. His profiteering and donations have really helped the EU lose support

https://order-order.com/2019/02/18/damian-collins-used-remain-campaigners-analyse-pro-brexit-outlets/#disqus_thread

"Damian Collins’ committee appointed former Labour Councillor and 89up CEO Mike Harris to carry out the analysis. Harris has previously called the backer of Best for Britain, George Soros “the largest single donor in human history for the defence and strengthening of democracy.” Soros also funds the campaign to overturn the biggest vote in UK history, and Best for Britain has itself received multiple fines from the Electoral Commission"

Why George Soros again?

Somebody from Labour has started to understand basic economics. She'll get deselected

https://order-order.com/2019/02/18/faiza-shaheen-caught-saying-sadiqs-emission-tax-unfair-will-hit-poorest-hardest/#disqus_thread

"Labour’s rising media star Faiza Shaheen has been recorded at an event calling Sadiq Khan’s new pollution tax “unfair” and warning that it will hit working class traders and families hardest"

She may achieve real fame, by being quoted with praise, by Trump.

It does sound like a breakfast cereal, but if it could power the UK for an hour a day, it should keep everything reliably regular.

Forget the spray can wielding scum. A good message would be sent out by jailing the Green Scammers that set up recycling centres, that then catch fire, burn for months, pollute the air, ground water and land. Somehow, the scammers recycle their earnings into jet fuel and their foreign property

" .. but to claim that the countryside and ocean is almost buried under litter is 97% bonkers.

It is 100% pure green crap. Recycled plastic has simply been loaded into otherwise empty shipping containers for their return to the Far East. China is now reducing its cooperation with the scam. All UK households can relax having carefully cleaned and correctly recycled their empty plastic bottles. They may reappear in BBC footage of polluted water in Thailand

(The lady expressing her anger to me, was not from the Indian sub-Continent)

Cloth production and clothing has always been labour intensive. The industrial Revolution was not just about clouds of steam, smoke and metal bashing. Water mills powered Lancashire looms, before steam, processing cotton farmed by slaves in America.

Immigrants from the Indian sub Continent increased in number following the events of 1947, and as cheap labour, post-war, doing "women's work", many were migrated towards textiles up North.

I don't know how long ago you were in India, but reasons for avoiding mechanisation include lack of reliable power to run the machines, and lack of finance to buy the machines. (The World Bank has been blocking international finance for such projects because of Global Warming) An employer in India and many other areas of the world, with many employees does enjoy status, loyalty and respect, provided he doesn't abuse it. Many communities benefit from capitalism in this manner, especially if there is no welfare state. Young, old, infirm, disabled etc are provided with less demanding work, for reduced rewards, but it is exploited by the ruthless and selfish.

If it was more profitable to develop factories in India, British companies would. It was, so they did. Power is now cheaper and more reliable in China, and India can't compete.

what is it with 97%?

As far as litter is concerned some roads have accumulated litter on the verges going back years - cleanup? - some community groups are doing some work - I'd like to see the return of community payback sentences at magistrates court where oiks are tasked with cleaning up especially the little shits with spray cans.

Comrade Harrabin has a piece on plastics recycling, saying that 97% of plastic bottles are being returned (in an unspecified place, perhaps a galaxy far, far away). https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-47273778

There's that number again. Claim a success rate of 100% or 50% folks will say it has been conjured out of thin air. But 97% is so very specific that, well, iss gorra be right, innit?

Harrabin quotes a spokesperson for the Campaign to Protect Rural England. Whilst I applaud their motives, the claim that "Our countryside, rivers and oceans are choked with plastic" is a little wide of the mark. From Llandudno I can see all the way to Anglesey and all I can see is, er, water. I hate litter as much as the next man - and often pick up other people's - the disgusting $%##%£s - but to claim that the countryside and ocean is almost buried under litter is 97% bonkers.
