    Ivor, a little slow today, I see? ;o)

    Incidentally, are the bumps on their heads the result of Danish police brutality, Eddie?

    Oops, sorry, Carolyn - didn't realise it was you who'd posted it up. So, is Eddie on another Blog course?

    You see, Big Sister, I'm phsychic, err sychic, err spyhic - I can see things. That No.1 from Pete Spindley was in moderation when I posted, but I knew what he wanted to say!

    That one in the front looks awfully cross. Hardly surprising I suppose given the size of the bump on his head.

    Not so sure this is in very good taste.
    On the penultimate day of Copenhagen with little worthwhile progress on what is the greatest threat to our civilisation the BBC 3-O'Clock news did not even mention this! Shame on you.

    "All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it's here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster" Barack Obama

    "Global warming is too serious for the world any longer to ignore its danger or split into opposing factions on it." Tony Blair

    "The danger posed by war to all of humanity - and to our planet - is at least matched by the climate crisis and global warming. I believe that t he world has reached a critical stage in its efforts to exercise responsible environmental stewardship." Ban Ki-moon

    skintick - Wrong on two counts, I think.

    It is in good taste, but more importantly, it's very funny.

    Copenhagen has been in almost every news bulletin for the past three weeks. Perhaps there was nothing new to report between 2 O'Clock and 3 O'Clock. It doesn't necessarily mean that the BBC has decided it's not important any more.

    Calm down.

    7. skintnick - please don't quote Blair, he's a liar, and there are some who would use that quote to claim it's all made up like WMD. I'm sure politicians known for their honesty could be quoted ... oh well, perhaps not.

    The snow people have every right to be protest, they have a lot to lose.

    Unsurprisingly the hashtag #uksnow has been trending on Twitter all afternoon...

    And someone's gone to the trouble to compile an interactive map of snow-related tweets, where people state the first half of their postcode plus a snowfall score between 0 (sun out, blue sky) to 10 (blizzard).

    Just about to log off at work, where it's dark and dry - although we had two periods where the weather turned from 0 to 4 and back again in the space of about 5 minutes!

    7 & 9 - Well, it must be true if Tony Blair said it; But don't panic, there's still time to establish another stage in the development of One World Government.

    Tony Blair was God's gift for 10 years. Now he is Satan?

    The issue of Climate Change is too VERY VERY big to be left out of any news bulletin; Sylvio Berlesconi made the cut for heaven's sake!!
