The headline that epitomises the New Labour era: 'New Rules'

New Labour. New rules. New taxes. New schemes to prey upon the public and suck the blood out of business, or what's left of it. According to this report from the BBC:

"From April, all businesses and public sector organisations that use more than a certain amount of energy must register for the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme and, from next year, pay for the carbon they emit."

CRC? That stands for what, I wonder?

"The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) scheme requires businesses to cut consumption or face stiff fines."

And meanwhile Ed 'son of a red' Milliband, the Energy Secretary, warns that "recent rows over scientific data must not damage efforts to control climate change."

But Ed, you cunt, what you call a recent row was when the public learnt that the scientific data was a fraud. You can't just carry on as if nothing's happened. Oh, sorry, my mistake, you can. Ed says:

"It's right that there's rigour applied to all reports about about climate change but I think it would be wrong that when a mistake is made it's somehow used to undermine the overwhelming picture that's there."

Rigour? A mistake made? Well, I suppose you could call it a mistake. They got caught committing scientific fraud. As for the overwhelming picture, it ain't overwhelming once you realise that it was painted by the fraudsters.
