I noticed something very subtle, today, while reading a recent article in the Guardian. If you can bear to read it yourself, here’s the link.
I may be imagining it, but I think there has been an almost imperceptible shift in the usual recent Gramscian and culturally Marxist language of mind control.
Let’s avoid worrying too much about the actual subject of the article, which is the British government’s proposed ban on the internal combustion engine in 2040, within the expected lifetime of certain newly-built cars.
Yes, this has almost single-handedly wrecked the retail vehicle market in this country. Yes, it is simply value signalling of the worst kind. Yes, we all know that our esteemed democratic ‘leaders’ and their string-pulling fonctionnaires need to live off our taxes.

(Author’s Note. This is an updated and re-written version of my earlier paper “Diesel Fumes” on the same subject).
Back in April the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, introduced from the coming October a £10 a day “toxicity charge” for pre 2006 cars, both petrol and diesel, entering the current London congestion charge zone. He also set out plans for a London “Ultra Low Emissions Zone” (ULEZ) . From April 2019 (brought forward from September 2020), it will cost £12.50 per day to drive in this zone a diesel car first registered before September 2015, or a petrol car built before 2006. Furthermore, he plans to extend this zone to the area inside the North and South Circular roads by 2021.
Given weekly, from now on, for “The most dangerous person on the planet”. Primarily for
“services to the Human Race that will lead directly or indirectly to its rapid extinction in geological time terms.”
Awarded today to Beth Stratford.
These people really are dangerous, much much worse and “more serious” than the Taliban (whatever he might be) or “Islamic Fundamentalists”. The latter can be cured 100%, with $20,000 each plus a sexy “Palestinian” girl and a 4-yr-old Golf GTI. I estimate that $100 million and 5,000 chicks would crack the “war on terror” – and the government’s old-car-scrappage-scheme can provide all 5,000 cars for about another $15 million.
The Beth Stratfords can’t be fixed so simply: they really believe what they are saying, unlike the former.
The dollars the Stratford-types already have: the girl won’t do it for them (I don’t blame her) and they (say they) don’t like cars. So we are temprarily stuffed for a bribe. Suggestions, any one?

Scary, scary stuff.
It confirms all I have ever suspected about GreeNazis and environmentalists.
I am indebted to davidncl for pointing to it, somewhere else, I think on Mr Eugenides, somewhere on his comment thread for this piece here.
I happened to stumble apon this Hugely funny website on the internet here. Let’s all make a point today to annoy the Asse-Hat, who’s weeping into his communion wine somewhere, about the planet…
Are the C of E pagan earth-worshippers yet?
The video on it is hilarious, everyone has to watch it…
And to ”Fred Bloggs”, would you kindly post something that could be better than this!
It really exists: check it out. And the strange guy who invented it really seems to care about what he sees as the “environment”……truly, Al Gorerot has penetrated human brains more thoroughly than was thought.
