Climate Change Deniers Should Be Executed ‘Gently’ says Eric Idle, by James Delingpole.
What’s sadder, though, perhaps is that from now on every time we watch the final scene of Monty Python’s Life of Brian and the bit where Eric Idle says from the cross “Cheer up Brian…”, before launching into “Always Look On the Bright Side Of Life”, we won’t be able to laugh any more.
All we’ll be able to think of is a washed-up ex-comedy hero, formerly the darling of the anti-Establishment but now just another rent-a-stupid-opinion celeb, regurgitating on his Twitter feed the half-baked, ill-informed, junk-science green propaganda he has apparently picked up from falling under the spell of another Brian. The crap Brian. Aka the pouty-lipped, perma-smiley, supremely overrated, celebrity pop star physicist Brian Cox.
