Thread: I realise it's Friday afternoon, but this clip is actually worth watching.

    I realise it's Friday afternoon, but this clip is actually worth watching.

    Not for the points that are being made. They are the usual specious environmentalist nonsense.

    No, the reason to watch this clip is because the mask slips. These guys not only want to turn the clock back to some pre-industrial paradigm, they also want to destroy capitalism in the process.

    Of course, what Monbiot doesn't mention (and what the slack-jawed cretins applauding in the audience either don't know or don't care about) is that the contraction in global growth he so blithely espouses would not only kill tens of millions of people, it would inevitably hit the world's poorest hardest, since they are the ones currently benefiting from economic growth because that is what is dragging them out of poverty. He knows that, but he sees it as a price worth paying.

    These people are genuinely scary.

    Not really. Everyone knows the poor simply loveliving in poverty. You can see it; they're so happy, always smiling..

    "Plenty of strikers can score goals," he said, gesturing to the famous old stands casting shadows around us.

    "But a lot have found it difficult wearing the number 9 shirt for The Arsenal."

    Yes. And then they come here and look bloody miserable. There's a lesson there, I think.

    Indeed. It must be the cold, I suppose.
