Miliband and the rest of the motley crew that are masquerading as the government of these islands have been taken to task about their latest propaganda. Two government press adverts which used nursery rhymes to raise awareness of climate change have been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). It said the advertisements went beyond mainstream scientific consensus in asserting that climate change would cause flooding and drought. A total of 939 people complained to the ASA about the “Act on CO2″ campaign.
Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband said the ads should have been “phrased better…..” Yes and Himmler had a bad press so far as the phrase “final solution” was concerned?
Three other advertisements, including a TV commercial, were cleared by the advertising watchdog.
The ASA ruled that the banned adverts, created on behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to promote its carbon reduction initiative, made exaggerated claims about the threat posed to the UK by global warming. Two posters juxtaposed adapted extracts from popular nursery rhymes with text that warned about the dangers of global warning.
One of the banned adverts read: “Rub a dub, three men in a tub, a necessary course of action due to flash flooding caused by climate change.” A second said Jack and Jill could not fetch a pail of water because extreme weather due to climate change had caused a drought.
As can be seen in the YouTube video, the risible apologist David Roderick Shukman from the Brussels Brainwashing Commissariat has his work cut out to try and put as best a gloss as he can on the situation.
What does this mean? That the charlatans will have to tread more carefully in future vis-à-vis the lies they tell us. It is clear that the ASA are “not on our side” as they clearly accept the idea that the alarmists are “on the right path” but have to be more careful.
