Ever flown with easyjet? Ming thinks you are stinking rich

Or my old 'friends' R***air, come to that.


Anyway, the increasingly ridiculous Ming Campbell has attempted to defend his proposed levels of asphyxiating 'green' taxes on flights thus: "The vast majority of people who use so-called cheap flights are people earning quite substantial sums of money - or people with quite substantial pensions". So, all those folk flying abroad for their summer holidays each year earn 'quite substantial sums of money', do they? Whenever I am on a R***Air or easyjet flight, I'm forever bumping into scions of the families Getty, Gates and Rothschild, and the sound of bottles of vintage Krug being cracked open can get wearing, and as for the caviar food fights, don't get me started. I'm sure it is the same story for my UK readers.

And it gets sillier: "The threat of global warming should be included in the national curriculum for every schoolchild, to ensure the issue is better understood". Far more important than the Three Rs, eh?

He has swanned around the dream world of "foreign policy" and is utterly at sea with real politics where you can see the joins.

What I hate is the way they call this sort of thing Tax "incentives". They are Tax punishments.Mind you at my last company I was told my incentive was to avoid getting kicked out.

There is a real problem with restricting travel to the rich . You are taking the circuses away and thats always bad

"people earning quite substantial sums of money - or people with quite substantial pensions".

He must be talking about MPs then

What a ridiculous nonentity

All too true. Anyway, I'm off out shortly, so do not expect the usual standards of rapid reaction.

What a scumbag he is - I flew Ryanair recently it was 50% East Europeans doing family visits home from the UK bless'em - and 40% poorer independent travellers - like myself. If I was rich I would not fly bloody Ryanair - it brings a whole new dimension of cruelty to the phrase "cattle class".

I think global warming already is covered in georgraphy classes.

The last time I flew Ryanair I was squashed between Brad Pitt and George Clooney and the only whisky they were serving on board was Glen Livet, whereas I would have preferred something a little less common. I tried to have a nap but honestly, the noise from the roulette wheel clicking round and the chips being raked across the table was too irritating.

The live fashion show was nice, though, and I did buy a nice little cocktail dress for a snip - £5,250. Fortunately, my Roller was waiting for me out on the runway, so I didn't have to go through all that Immigration and queuing stuff with people flying BA and Air France.

Why does anybody become a libdem?
What are they for? they are not even a protest vote party such as ukip or the monster raving loonies.
I despair
, Mong Campbell should be shot out of a cannon into the same pit of burning excrement used to execute the other Cmpbell and blair and Brown

Why are they teaching "global warming" in state schools and indoctrinating children with crackpot theories? What's next, Creationism?

The world has been warming up over the last few years, but not because of anything man is doing. We're not powerful enough to influence the universe. The sun is throwing out more flares just now and there isn't a blind thing we can do about it. So if the lefty, anti-progress one-worlders could just shut up, that would be very nice.

PHitch - Campbell, Blair and Brown? Why limit yourself? The entire cabinet would be good.

Agree with Verity on both of her above posts.
I suppose we'll having a quota on long-haul flights next

Prat. and like Newmania, I'm going to repeat myself. Prat.

Now, does one spell prat 'pratt' or 'prat'?

Just the one 't'.

Wonder how Ming travels between London and his consituency. I'm a fairly regular traveller on that GNER route and I've yet to see him. I suppose that must mean he gets the National Express coach.  



Blogger Croydonian said... 8:25 pm

I do not think I would wish long distance coach travel even on Tessa Jowell. Well, maybe.

Verity you will be underwhelmed to know only yesterday The Guardian was promoting Intelligent Design.

it's hey-nonny-nonny next....(apologies, obscure reference).

Classes on global warming until you're 18 planned now, according to today's Times.

If Minge Campbell is trying for 'Arsehole of the Year' he should be aware that arseholes, unlike him, are fundamentally (pun alert) useful organs whereas he is not. And the same applies to my licence upon his nickname.
