It's The End Of Days

Prepare for the Apocalypse: Gary Younge, the Garth Crooks of the Guardian (or is it the other way round ?), has actually made a halfway sensible comment. Quite correctly, he asks why, if the Goreon is so obsessed with the environment, he didn’t do anything back when he was, y’know, vice-president.

Unfortunatly, Gazza misses the obvious answer, namely that embracing ecofreakery is the classic manourvre of a political euncuh. It provides the quickest route to Liberal deification with the least need to lay out actual, sane policies. Serious politics requires rather more than painting your backside blue and living in a tree. Acknowledging this truth is what Liberals call 'selling out'.
