Dear Commissioner,

I have just read your letter to ITRE Chairman Jerzy Buzek MEP on the subject of the EU’s industrial competitiveness, and I am sorry to say that it left me profoundly depressed – though not quite so depressed as I daresay the Chief Executives of companies across my East Midlands region would feel, had they been obliged to read your pages of bureaucratic verbiage with little substantive content.

It seems to me that there are two major issues.  You mention both, at various points, but you present no significant ideas for serious change.

The first is energy.  As former Industry Commissioner Antonio Tajani put it, “We are creating an Industrial Massacre in Europe (with energy prices)”.  Plants are closing, jobs are lost, investment is being forced out of Europe in a range of energy-intensive businesses, including steel, aluminium, glass, cement, chemicals and petroleum refining.  The extent…

The Daily Telegraph is rapidly turning into a bigger joke in the Street of Shame than The Sun. In the same website column last night we read:

dtimmigration1It’s a success! We’re tolerant! I’nt immigrants brirrant, eh?

Four inches further down we read this – no change of visual, we’re cutting costs here:

dtimmigration2Send them back! They’re spiralling out of control! We’d be done with them if it wasn’t for that fat Commie bastard Vince Cable! Immigrants eh, doncha hate ’em?

So what Theresa May has actually done here is slag off Vinny ‘Flamenco’ Livewire for a huge success by not controlling it on her watch, when she was, um, supposed to be stopping that same ‘it’ which is, er, a huge success.

Not for nothing is she known in these columns as Theresa Mayormaynot.

The post 1940 cooling in Iceland didn’t fit NASA’s agenda, so three years ago they simply made it disappear.

With three days to go before an ‘important’ Greec/eurogroupe meeting – and four days to go before British election voting booths close – the Bank for International Settlements has handed both Syriza and UKip a tactical nuke…if they’re willing to use it.

There was a knockout (in every sense of the word) chart on Twitter Sunday evening from @Edward_hugh which puts into sharp focus the Trojan efforts made by EU members to ensure they have nothing to fear from Greek default contagion. And yes, I have my foot to the floor on the iron pedal here. For your greater astonishment, I have added yellow and black asterisks to show some of the more horrifying exposures. Put together, they look like a flashers’ convention:

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

PLOS ONE has published a study which suggests two thirds of rabbit species will be severely affected by climate change. The authors of the study think climate change will force rabbits to migrate towards the poles, or to higher altitudes, and that some species will suffer significant range declines.

The abstract of the study;

Climate change during the past five decades has impacted significantly on natural ecosystems, and the rate of current climate change is of great concern among conservation biologists. Species Distribution Models (SDMs) have been used widely to project changes in species’ bioclimatic envelopes under future climate scenarios. Here, we aimed to advance this technique by assessing future changes in the bioclimatic envelopes of an entire mammalian order, the Lagomorpha, using a novel…

There has been shock and outrage after leading Liberal Democrat Danny Alexander openly used the highly offensive ‘N’ word in an interview with BBC television yesterday.

Mr Alexander had previously been accused of using the word – which many people say is so offensive it should be eradicated from the English language – in other recent discussions about the future of the party.

The following is an extract from an interview in which Alexander uses the ‘n’ word twice in the space of just a few sentences (warning – offensive language):

“The truth is N**k was making an argument that we as pro-Europeans actually haven’t made our case anywhere near powerfully enough or consistently enough for 20 years. Turning that round is a big job. It can’t be done in two debates. I felt incredibly proud of N**k for doing that, because he was standing up for an argument that I really believe in.”
