Here’s the running order of the main news stories last night on the BBC (PM Programme at least):
1. Boris Johnson’s senior advisor Dominic Cummings saying that after Johnson was elected there were almost immediately discussions in No. 10 about how to get rid of him. (Like yeah)
2. How Jeff Bezos had his 10 minutes in space (and sadly came back)
3. John Kerry, the US climate change envoy saying we had to deal with humanity’s climate change ‘suicide note’ and this needed China (who else) to set its targets much higher—or else the rest of the world would have to get to zero carbon emissions much sooner. This, according to Kerry, was ‘mathematically accurate.’ Mr Kerry, you are a complete fuck. If you and your sort had adopted the Contraction and Convergence approach when you had the chance to, either in the 1990s or even as late as the Copenhagen COP meeting in 2009, you could have saved some honour in talking about what is ‘mathematically accurate.' But since the US was and is one of the world’s biggest culprits in terms of contributing to climate change you chose not to. And now you want to pre-distribute the blame to China, which frankly is not historically responsible for the bulk of the problem. If that’s your attitude, you are indeed a useless fuck with no idea about how to solve the problem.
Yes, the swearing is regrettable. But entirely justified.
