Sticky situations

Dan Glass of Plane Stupid managed to superglue himself briefly to our glorious leader in order to secure a brief conversation about the mind numbing folly of expanding airports in the face of carbon apocalypse.
Gordon didn't seem to mind - as he really isn't arsed about the opinions of the common folk and simply filters them all out, so they don't damage the delicate balance of his internal bubble juggling.
If Dan had taken the trouble to get himself a few billion in the bank, of course, he wouldn't have needed superglue.
I think there's a lesson there for all of us.

Whilst Britain tries to water down EU renewable energy proposals, and internal audits reveal chaos at the heart of the nuclear industry, the carbon spewers race to mash up the arctic to grab 3 years worth (count 'em) of go-juice.
Also - jellyfish numbers swollen by over fishing and climate change continue to plague our leisured hours (excuse for a 'toon re-run) and the cheap flight criminals feel the pinch.

On an unrelated issue, I'd just like to register my own little protest at the further fascistic leanings of Sr Berlusconi, who has secured legislation guaranteeing himself immunity from prosecution whilst he presides over a corruption ridden lurch to the right in a country that really should know better by now. I hope this isn't the beginning of a trend, but I fear it may be.
