Climategate continues to roll. Australia’s parliament just imploded over discord due to the emissions trading scheme being pushed by opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull. Five Liberal frontbenchers have resigned (plus seven MPs) because they actually want to discuss the scheme rather than just allow the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to dash off to Copenhagen and grandstand as a friend of the chairman. Rudd’s Labor party needs support from seven non-government senators to win passage through the 76-seat upper house.

Meanwhile, the BBC site blissfully burbles on about Copenhagen and CO2 reduction pledges, the Telegraph heaps praise on the Tories for the proposal to offer to give us goody vouchers if we reach our personal recycling targets!

When Sun reporter Trevor Kavanagh wrote up his interview with Tony Blair in June of this year it carried the Blair quote:

"I would rather nail my testicles to a speeding train than be President of the European Union,"
