Energy poverty under scrutiny

Oxfam has issued a report on fuel poverty which contains the usual bull about climate change blah blah and recommending more ‘clean renewables’ which are behind the problem in the first place. As wind  and solar just don’t deliver so lets go with clean coal technology while we wait for Norway to sell us a Thorium reactor, looks like they have beaten India and China with this. 17% of Germans live in fuel poverty as Germany’s rush into renewable energy has made the country’s energy unaffordable, unreliable and they have been forced to build ever more power stations which burn dirty brown coal while their nuclear reactors could be giving them cheap constant and reliable power. Will Russia provide the excuse Merkel needs to return to nuclear power

Abandoned dogs

Flavour of the day in Ireland due to 65 puppies needing homes is the need to house dogs before they are put down. In the comments on one meeja item there are people who just can’t read and so I have gotten a bit snotty with  them

“Enough tripe about buying from breeders.
If you are lucky to be allowed to adopt a dog from a rescue centre you WILL be checked.
There are people all over the country who WILL check your premises for suitability.
The adopted dogs WILL be neutered and chipped.
You WILL be asked for a donation to help fund the work done by the rescue centres.
I am a life member of the Kennel Club and as a former breeder I would not trust half of those involved these days as far as I could throw them. Many are brilliant at what they do but others are just fronts for puppy farming.
Right at the start I wrote “Some folks need properly bred dogs for specific purposes but mostly its down to snobbery.” Read it again and if you need a dog for a specific purpose then by all means go to a breeder but this journal.ie item is not about breeders but the need to home these puppies.”

Jewish community in Belgium on high alert

Of course the Irish Jihadi are supporting the creep of Islam across Europe as if it was a wonderful thing so I had to repeat this on an item on thejournal.ie

Translation in part
Malmø, Sweden. The police now publicly admit what many Scandinavians have known for a long time: They no longer control the situation in the nations’s third largest city. It is effectively ruled by violent gangs of Muslim immigrants. Some of the Muslims have lived in the area of Rosengård, Malmø, for twenty years, and still don’t know how to read or write Swedish. Ambulance personnel are attacked by stones or weapons, and refuse to help anybody in the area without police escort. The immigrants also spit at them when they come to help. Recently, an Albanian youth was stabbed by an Arab, and was left bleeding to death on the ground while the ambulance waited for the police to arrive. The police themselves hesitate to enter parts of their own city unless they have several patrols, and need to have guards to watch their cars, otherwise they will be vandalized. “Something drastic has to be done, or much more blood will be spilled” says one of the locals.”

Balkans floods

Lots of bleating from the Irish lefties as Ireland donates only €50k to the relief work. Ireland Ltd. is like a drunk in a pub buying drink for everyone while his wife and kids sit cold and hungry at home. With no money to pay for the water charge. Surely the Arabs owe their Moslem’s some help? Maybe Russia could help too but Ireland has people living on the streets and hundreds of other ways of spending money
