Update: eco toffs

Dave E adds more to the sorry tale of limp wrist toff radicalism;

... Lily Kember, one of the spokespeople for this bunch of eco-toff crap, is the product of a the Godolphin and Latymer School, the fees for which amount to some £14,000 pa - more than my total annual income. These fees were generously paid by her mummy and daddy to, ahem, give her the best start in life. So it seemed very strange when one of her climate chumps was quoted as saying:

We're here because our parents' generation has failed us

But perhaps she wasn't referring to her own privileged upbringing, but the fact that the great unwashed no longer know their place and have aspirations to take advantage of cheap modern travel.This pillock also said
We're afraid of what the police might do to us, we're afraid of going to jail Don't worry, Odious Ferry says you can share his cell.To make matters worse, Energy Secretary, and political caste member, Ed Miliband is reported to be calling for "popular mobilisation" to support politicians trying to pressure world leaders into a deal on climate change. He went on to say there needs to be "a mass movement" along the lines of Make Poverty History. Well that will be great news for the wristband producing sweatshops in Bangladesh, and the washed up rock stars with messianic delusions and a mountainous back catalogue to sell.And just to illustrate the pointlessness of this approach - there's still massive poverty all over the world, it didn't work.What a sorry bunch of fucking wankers

Three points:

1. Why the homophobia? (limp wrist?)

2. Most people are sent to public school when they are about eleven - i.e. they probably have very little say in the matter themselves and even less political consciousness at that age. I think going to public school (which I didn't) says more about someone's parents attitudes than their own.

3. Some working class people may gain some short term relief from cheap holidays in the sun but as climate change bites - as we've already seen from Katrina - it's the working class who will suffer the most.
