Lembit Opik environmental foe?

Lembit Opik's cavalier attitude to the environment can perhaps be explained by his concern that earth is about to be struck by an asteroid. If we're all doomed anyway why worry about a touch of global warming?

I'm grateful to Tim Worstall's blog (I can't stand blogspeak 'hat tip' nonsense) for drawing my attention to this tale in the Guardian about Lembit's failed attempt to fly Chris Huhne in a private plane to "an environmental action centre in west London to set out an agenda focusing on values such as the environment and localism".

Now I'm well used to tales about LibDems facing two ways at once over policy but what a classic! Crossing the country in a private plane to talk about the environment and localism - a clear case of do as we say not as we do.

Lembit Opik has his feet a bit caught in between policy and personal behaviour (we all have, just generally not in public) but it makes him look a little bumbling and foolish, and oddly enough partially as a result I fancy him rotten.

I'm sorry, but I do.

The lolloping charming twit.

Oh dear - still there's no accounting for taste. Isn't he walking out with that weather lady with the expressive hands? If you can't waggle your digits over Cornwall you may not have much chance......
