Meanie greenies

Delingpole is out in force today, picking up on the meanie greenies, commenting on research that shows greenies or more likely to lie, steal and cheat – and sell their grandmothers into slavery.

However, it could be the other way around. People who are disposed towards lying, stealing and cheating – and selling their grandmothers into slavery – could be the types who tend to gravitate towards greenery ... or politics, or both.

Anyhow, it is a fascinating thesis, and one that seems to stack up. The more you peel back the fa├žade of greenery, the more you find the money agenda behind it – seriously big money.

And that is what I'll be doing today. The research project I've started is developing a life of its own, and time pressure is crowding in. Blogging, perforce, is going to be light, but it should be worth it, jacking up the campaign into a whole new dimension.
