Climate denial rests on the assumption that 97% of climate scientists who believe climate change is caused by human behaviour are wrong, and, remarkably, a small group of mostly journalists, politicians, business people, and general non-scientists - many with strong links to the fossil fuel industry - have managed to disprove the link between human behaviour and climate change, and in doing so unearthed a global science conspiracy.
To give the Chancellor credit, there is now no serious politician arguing that we don't need to reduce the deficit and find a way to run a balanced budget again in the long-term. Given we are spending almost as much this year on debt interest as we are on education, that is something to be thankful for.
I am writing to ask that you revisit your proposals for legal aid, proposals which have generated considerable criticism from across the board... Labour fully supports making those can afford to pay their legal fees do so, and clawing back costs from wealthy criminals. Legal aid should be reserved for those most in need.
I had been to the Houses of Parliament two times before, but on neither occasion had I been lucky enough to experience anything of importance. Today, though, was different. Today, I experienced Prime Minister's Questions. What I actually viewed can be likened quite accurately to a primary school playground.
Yet again, here we are, another leadership contention, more spiteful words, contradictions and backstabbing from the Labor party on a whole, and now Rudd is PM again. A man enamoured by his own celebrity. Australian politics has suffered an immense loss in credibility and the Australian public is embarrassed.
George Osborne was clear from day one as Chancellor of the Exchequer that we had to cut borrowing and the nation's debts; so that we could once again live within our means as a country. In a changing world, to be competitive, create the jobs of the future and support those who need care, you have to be able to pay your way.
A heavily worked phrase used by the tourist industry is to describe a particular destination as a "country of contrast". Sri Lanka is surely such a country - at one level a popular tourist destination... In contrast it also detains its citizens without trial, restricts freedom of expression, arrests members of the judiciary, stands accused of committing war crimes and routinely tortures.
What about the government's austerity response to the crash? Why are many of the policies advocated by the Green party rarely, if ever, featured in programmes such as Question Time, or Today, on Radio 4? Sustainability should be the guiding principle at the heart of our industrial and economic policies.
