(Update: The inexorable herald now has downgraded its guestimate to not just 40,000 but, wait for it, 'up to 40,000.' That's journospeak for 'fuck all actually.')
Adolf has a few questions for them.
Will they pay ten percent more income tax to fund our growing deficits?
Will they contemplate any reduction in the number of government employees?
Will they countenance any reduction in gummint spending?
Will they give up any of their gummint funded WFF and other rorts?
So who the fucking hell do they think will pay for it all? Don't know, don't care. Too dumb to worry about that.
Where were they when Labour issued the permits for all the mines operating currently in the conservation estate?
Nowhere to be seen.
Adolf's advice to the current administration is to ignore these fifty thousand ignorant pricks and:-
Drill baby drill,
Blow baby blow.
Dig baby dig.
Crush baby crush
Hell, if you can ignore 83% who voted against the smacking legislation, a few thousand hairy, smelly conversationists are a mere doddle.
No, it's not a typo. These people aren't conservationists. They're Luddites.
