It has been some considerable time since 'the lesbian straightener' entered these hallowed columns. I refer, of course, to Mr. Chris Huhne, former 'il-Lib-non-Dem' MP who found himself in a spot of bother when his missus ratted him out to the 'Plods' over an incident in which he lied to them in a sworn statement. Apparently she had found out that he was having it off with one of her friends who apparently worshiped at the shrine of Sappho, well, she did until 'Superman' Huhne put her on the straight, if not narrow, road to normality! However, despite his, er, good deed, it did not save him from doing time in Cell Block 11!
Of course, all that is old history but following a rare visit to What's Up With That, the excellent site that gives you the straight news on so-called global warming, suddenly the old 'lesbian straightener' was back again. In a fascinating, if depressing, article, they offer up three examples of Green lunacy. The first featured the utterly stupid notion of felling zillions of trees in America, turning them into wood pellets and shipping them 'over here' so that the Drax power station could burn wood instead of coal. Needless to say, this lunacy can only be carried out with the assistance of £450 million a year subsidy from HMG - yeeeees, quite! Also needless to say, guess who is running this scam? Step forward the lesbian straightener! Where does he find the energy?
