The problem identified by the program was not about global warming but how someone with the profound ignorance of Delinpole can influence such a serious debate.

The idea that the internet should decide the veracity of scientific findings is absurd. I don’t trust scientists but I trust the scientific method, it’s the only game in town, the alternative is to return to medieval myths, superstition and conspiracy theories.

Dissenters are the very thing that drives science forward and any theory is subject to challenge, however theories become accepted when a consensus is formed around them. Someone may come along with an alternative explanation for gravity but until such time we will work with the consensus view, no problem with that surely?

Go to: Pope 'could cancel UK visit' over 'offensive' Foreign Office memo

Are, now its all clear, this was a put up job. The government “allows” a junior official to make remarks that result in the Pope cancelling his visit. The government apologises (but not enough). Given the likelihood of civil action against the Pope if he sets foot on these shores and the consequent embarrassment to the government that invited him everyone is happy, even me as there will be no need to “man the barricades”.
