Telegraph | News | Miliband promotes plan to buy rainforests

Ministers are proposing an extraordinary scheme to tackle climate change in which the Amazon rainforest would be turned into an international trust and its trees sold to individuals and groups.

Plans for the wholesale "privatisation" of the rainforest will be raised by David Miliband, the Environment Secretary, at a summit in Mexico this week.

The scheme, endorsed by Tony Blair, aims to protect the plants and wildlife from logging....

Quite right too - the denizens of the political saloons of Islington have a far better idea of how all that green stuff should be managed than the poor little brown people who live there - so a few beads and mirrors and bingo they will sell the land to us!

Go on Dave -
Take up the White Man's burden—
Send forth the best ye breed—
Go, bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives' need;
To wait, in heavy harness,
On fluttered folk and wild—
Your new-caught sullen peoples,
Half devil and half child.

Power has completely turned Millie's head. The money (billions of it) will - of course - be squandered by the local governments. The locals will see nothing from it. They will carry on as before.

How, then, will Jasmin of Kensington and Ricky of Bootle stop the locals from chopping "their" trees? Will they sue for their lost toys? That won't work, so the scheme would need to be policed. Either we don't police it (billions squandered to make Millie look caring) or we do police it, in which case we have to pay for troops on the ground in a police action to stop impoverished natives from living off what was once their own land.

This is unutterable racism and imperialism. Who let these madmen out of their asylum? I hope the nations concerned tell Millie where to stick his ideas.

My wife just commented that, when Jasmin and Ricky fly to South America to hug their trees and protect them from the natives, they will generate more CO2 than their trees could ever process!

What a bloody brilliant idea. We'll re-create the Empire and this time no one will be able to dispute our right to it because we'll have the title deeds to every acre.

It is a bit odd that the socialists came up with the idea though.

Somehow the idea of'send best of all ye breed' doesn't include a picture of the hemp wearing, smelly Islington layabouts
Still, I believe some of the natives are cannibals.
