Profile of an arch Ecotwat

who we are

Alexis RowellAlexis Rowell

cuttingthecarbon was set up by Alexis Rowell after he discovered that man-made climate change meant the North Pole was going to disappear in his lifetime. Alexis's first career was as a BBC journalist from 1989 to 1998, mostly reporting on the consequences of the fall of the Berlin Wall. After completing an MBA at INSEAD in 1999, and spending seven years working in business development for technology companies, his concern about climate change led him to seek election in 2006 as a councillor in the London Borough of Camden. He was appointed Camden Eco Champion and Chair of the council's all-party Sustainability Task Force.

Excuse me Alexis. How the fuck can climate change eradicate the North Pole? And of course, surprise, surprise, he was moulded by the BBC. And he’s a fucking ECO champion!  Hang him.

Employment 101. Or should that be 1?

For those of you who have been hiding in the jungle for the past umpteen years and have popped their head up over the long grass, to see if the war is over ....
the UK is in DEEP trouble.

The population of this country is approximately 60 million of which 32 million are retired. That leaves 28 million to do any work.

There are 17 million in school or at Universities.
That leaves 11 million to do any work.

Of those there are 8 million employed by the UK government.
Leaving 3 million to do any work.

1.2 million are in the armed forces pre-occupied with fighting a pointless war in Afghanistan, with a lack of proper equipment, on the USA and UK governments pretext of killing Osama Bin-Laden. Or something.

Which now leaves 1.8 million to do any work.
Take from that total the 0.8 million people who work for Local County Councils.
That leaves 1 million to do any work.

At any given time there are 488,000 people in hospitals or claiming Invalidity Benefit.
Leaving 512,000 to do any work.

Oh, and let's not forget there are 511,998 people in prisons at the moment. That leaves just two people to do any work.

You and me.

And there you are, sitting on your arse, at your computer, reading this load of bollocks that I've just posted on the blog.
Is it any wonder that we are all in the shite up to our necks, my B.P. is through the roof from the stress of trying to cope on my own and my liver is on the verge of 'jumping ship' in the hope of finding an easier life.
