I was going to title this post some thing like “Chris Huhne: utter cunt” but then decided the “cunt” was superfluous as, at least in my vocabulary, “huhne” is a vastly more shocking cuss-word. It is now even challenging “balls” in my dictionary of insults.
Now, Mr Chris Speedy-Alibi-Gonewifeless* Huhne why might increasing energy costs be the case?
Could it be to do with you Chris? From wikipedia…
Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change
A noted and vocal environmentalist, Huhne accepted the role of Secretary of State with the stated intention of making the nation more ecologically conscious. Among his first actions was launching National Wind Week by speaking at an event in London’s Leicester Square on 15 June 2010. Underscoring his personal commitment to wind, Huhne has erected a wind turbine rising 8 feet above the roof of his constituency home in Eastleigh where he spends his weekends.
A lot of wind there. He is indeed at least as full of both that and piss (the piss he is taking) as the barber’s cat.
He of course utterly failed to underscore his personal commitment to energy conservation by simply sticking to speed limits like what normal folk have to. Correction! By having his ex-wife stick to them. Women, know thy place! You know behind the chap with the red-flag (flags are powered by wind) and all. The hubris of a man who expects his ex-wife to take the rap is not so much tragic as pathetic. Not so much pathetic as dismal. Not so much dismal as cuntish. Not so much cuntish as utter huhne. I mean who the fuck is Chris Huhne anyway apart from a twat over-promoted beyond the wildest dreams of things you find at the bottom of ponds?
There are of course swings, roundabouts and eye-watering bills in the energy market (it’s a market of course) but totemic (I use the word in every sense) Greenism such as Huhne playing Windy Miller is actually a distortion of the market beyond any human comprehension. A distortion he and his predecessors and acolytes have created. Huhne has basically put himself in the position of the arsonist who complains that it wouldn’t entirely have burnt down if the fire brigade had arrived more promptly. He is the sort of utter bastard who kills his parents and then begs clemency for being an orphan.
And that is almost why he is to be despised. I suspect though keeping the proles down via his quixotic windiness is to Huhne a feature, not a bug. Joe Public can’t afford to raise such totems to Gaia as his (practically pointless) turbiniculated offering - we can’t even afford him to do it either (it’s heavily subsidised of course). But then such things are never about actually making electricity at market rates are they? They are about the elect staking their claim to be morally better than the rest. Huhne is exactly the same as a corrupt old medieval robber baron who rapes and pillages and then pays for a few extra pews in the cathedral in order to be holier than the peasantry who might sit on them.
And that is why Chris Huhne is indeed a huhne. And that is why I hope the “unrelated” driving charges kick him into the long grass. Because they aren’t unrelated. They are symptoms of the same underlying moral pathology.
And yes, I do mean the analogy to feudalism pretty much exactly. That is precisely what Greenism is about. It’s not back-door socialism (”watermelons” and all that) and it certainly has nothing to do with the environment. It is simply neo-feudalism with a religion so new many don’t even realise it is a religion.
*Allegedly. And Robbie Williams isn’t gay and Ryan Giggs is a devoted family man. More controversially I’d say David Cameron is a conservative.
