On Climate and China
Chinese and climate change is an interesting one- huge chunk of world population, relatively low outputs compared to Europe, UK or USA.
You can understand them thinking why should we do more when you lot do f'all...
As to sabotage- who knows what happened? There's a reason LibDems try to get decisions made in public- you can be held to account.
Back room deals always need a fall guy- it was China, or it was USA etc- does it matter? We're F8cked either way.


On taxes and public sector spending
1 in 6 of the population work in the public sector. Tories want to make 1 million redundant last I heard. Current unemployment 2 million.
Yeah this makes a *lot* of sense.
It's the same issue with pensions- we've an issue where social workers want more cash now, with an agency getting a cut and f*all pension instead of working for the council where they get less "now" but a decent pension. Our pensions aren't golden plated- it's just everyone else has been off spending theirs when times were good.
Another 30 years from now we're gonna be in serious pension pain. probably earlier.

Actually by GDP, up until the crash it's been fairly steady.

okay so i barely come on here anymore so don't know whats already been said on this (checked back 5 pages and couldn't find anything) but i found this article very interesting: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2 ... mark-lynas

also, i'm not sure what you mean by relatively low outputs? China's GDP is bloody huge, below only Japan and US i think, I am aware of the problems with GDP and how low GDP per capita is, but still, china does not have relatively low output....

PLUS they have the second biggest carbon footprint, and it is growing very fast : [/url]http://www.allcountries.org/ranks/carbo ... -2004.html[/url]

so this whole argument that developed countries need to do more before expecting developing nations to is a bit silly in reference to china, plus regardless, developing countries is where improvements will have the most value added....

bleh, why am i getting into this? i should be writing my essay... on the chinese economy :S

White asbestos, Bird flu, CJD from eating beef, Salmonella from eggs, Millennium bug, Global cooling... All causes of massive panic in the last 20 years, all ended up being nothing to worry about. Global warming smells a bit similar...

Okay so its nowhere near as good as the last similar one I found which sparked the semi-official dance routine to The Road...
(remember? *gesture* *gesture* *point* *laugh* or something)
... but another The Road computer game video has popped up again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW-5lhJCb50

Seriously, whats the obsession?!

On a similar(ish) note, I think we should all learn tarrant's theme tune (see the latest euro tour diary) in order for a mass singing of it at the roundhouse gig.

Seconded.
In a 3000 capactiy venue, how many people do you think it would take to make sufficient noise above the crowd chatter for this to be heard...? I reckon it would take about 50-100. This is do-able. It must be done.

I'll be 28 in March. Here's another blog about lending and borrowing drums at a gig. Anyone who plays in a band should read my extremely wise words of wsdomy wiseness.

I borrow drums relatively often, but I don't commit any of the cardinal sins. I'm lucky in that I'm "super-punk", so I don't need more than one cymbal stand, or any rack toms.

Last month I dropped part of someone's hi-hat clutch on the floor. A tiny, tiny screw, of the sort that's almost impossible to find on a normal floor, never mind one that's covered in amps, wires, and miscellaneous junk. I had to tell him; I was mortified. After everyone had finished playing I scoured the place with a fine toothcomb. Found it after about half an hour. Thank god.

End of the night, desperately scouring through the miscellaneous junk on the floor, looking for a screw. We've all been there right?

What, at the end of a night looking for a screw? Yes.
