Intelligent Warming

England: It seems members of far-right party UKIP are competing with the best of the Americans when it comes to bizarre scientifish ideas. Take Henley-on-Thames councillor David Silvester, who has a novel idea about the recent floods.

In the letter to the Henley Standard he wrote: The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel (and in naked breach of a coronation oath) will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war.

He added: I wrote to David Cameron in April 2012 to warn him that disasters would accompany the passage of his same-sex marriage bill. ...

It is his fault that large swathes of the nation have been afflicted by storms and floods.

His party have been quick to point out that he is entitled to his views, but that they are not those of the party. And I am perfectly entitled to mock him for those views and note that they're not that unusual for a UKIP member. Perhaps UKIP's objection is that he neglected to blame the EU in some way?

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
