Eurocrats and theocrats want our abasement
The Gods Squad, various clerics, imams, vicars, cardinals, archbishops, bishops, Grand Muftis (is there a collective noun for them?) and rabbis, all trooped into the European Commission’s Berlaymont HQ on Monday to fight the good fight against us “greedy” consumers and our nasty CO2 emissions.
It is perhaps fitting that an out of touch, unpopular and referendum-phobic EU should look for divine help. After all both the eurocrats and theocrats have plenty in common. Both are a pretty preachy bunch and like nothing more than to lay on the guilt trips. Most importantly, both derive their authority from a higher source than the public.
Climate change has become the new orthodoxy for our times.
Truly it is a religion, be afraid, very afraid.
