    Well, temperatures were supposed to keep going up and going up and going up no end and we were all supposed to be dying in a perpetual heat wave by now, instead we've seen fairly static temperatures for the entirety of the century so far and growing of the ice sheets, we're ****ing over the climate so much that we aren't actually ****ing it over.
    That is totally incorrect. If you had bothered to do some research you would know that there are reasons why the temperatures are somewhat static and that the warming is actually slowed due to changes higher up in the atmosphere which are also the result of humans. Also acid rain and oceanic acidification, noth amused by humans are still massive issues.

    You mean there is reason after they went "oh **** we're wrong again?"

    There are several reasons. The scientists ignored the fact that extra heat leads to extra evaporation which has given us a temporary reprieve from global warming and there are things happening in much higher levels of the atmosphere which no one knew about (they are cooling for reasons which are very complicated) warming will begin again within the next few decades but again, the biggest threat we face is the acid.

    More evaporation should lead to greater warming, the biggest greenhouse gas after all is water vapour, and is this going to restart in the same way that it wasn't supposed to stop?

    It's great how you are avoiding the points you have no answer too...
    And again there are complex reasons why more water along with all the other factors caused a decline in growth. There are many articles out there written by people far smarter than I if you want to bother reading them. But if you are happy to wallow in ignorance then so be it.

    Britain now has a comprehensive school-educated Secretary of State for education, Mrs Greening likely does not know what makes a decent school, has no experience of a good school, and will consign another generation of young Britons, who are unfortunate enough to attend a comprehensive school, to a life of underachievement, false promise, mediocrity, and no hope.
    (Original post by Saoirse:3)
    Yeah, because there are no decent comprehensives and we should definitely only have education secretaries with an experience of schooling which we can't afford to provide to most of the country.
    Presumably UKIP would prefer a man only partly educated in the state sector, Michael Gove, to come back to Education?

    Patel Made ID Sec ... Not be bad , Clarke is the new Business , Energy and Industry Sec ... Looks like they are keeping DOT and merging Energy and Business considering Skills and Innovation is being handed over to the Education Department as well as HE and FE
    No more Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc) in a major departmental shake-up is a very bad move. Actions to reduce climate change also benefit health and reduce our dependence on energy supplies from Putin and other nasty regimes.

    And then the environment sec supports fox hunting too. I honestly had hoped May would not be that bad but she really is.

    I found the best bit of the SA article being when it said you can't take a decade and use it as the yard stick...after taking a decade and using it as a yard stick

    You have forgotten her belief in ending green measures to relieve businesses, and consumers of costly energy; give cheaper consumer durables; and boost the travel industry.

    See bold, what did you mean by that? Life_peer

    First of all, thanks for those positive remarks despite the lamentable flaws!


    As for your question, I'm not worried at all. I obviously can't speak my mind freely at this point but it's fair to say that I'm much more relaxed now, about three months into the term, than at the very beginning. Despite the formal prestige of my current role and the prime position of our party, I begin to realise the costs of being in government are perhaps not quite proportional to the benefits.

    The by-election was unfortunate and embarrassing for the government, however it's not the time to point fingers. I'm not feeling responsible, though I certainly could have done some things better. I now expect the government to lose a seat, however our mandate will remain to be stronger than that of the last government, and if UKIP continue to prefer this coalition government over one involving Labour, Socialists or Greens, our voting power will stay the same (although we'll have to take greater care to avoid snufkins and other backstabbing animals).

    Our current objective is to finalise all remaining Statements of Intent and of course publish a budget. We're also working on four new bills that should be ready soon.

    How does knowing someone's name influences their skill and expertise?! :confused:
    It doesn't, but it creates a new level of intimacy and makes the patient feel more comfortable which is important when they're ill enough to warrant a hospital stay - instead of feeling that they're being dealt with by a succession of randoms, they feel that they have specific people looking after them, and that can help create more of a sense of safety and security.

    Also, I don't know whether this is just the fact that I live in rural Kent where we do things in a more old-fashioned way, but there's a basic manners issue as well - round here, doing the kinds of things that someone working in a hospital might do for and around somebody and not introducing yourself would be considered an extreme act of rudeness and disrespect.

    Of course, it's the nice and polite way, however I strongly feel that the opposite does not warrant a reaction beyond asking them to introduce themselves. Briefly speaking, the campaign is a massive overreaction.

    Hardly a backstab though as I was very open about it.
