A Weblog monitoring coverage of environmental issues and science in the UK media. By Professor Emeritus Philip Stott. The aim is to assess whether a subject is being fairly covered by press, radio, and television. Above all, the Weblog will focus on science, but not just on poor science. It will also bring to public notice good science that is being ignored because it may be politically inconvenient.

The sinister left dextrously analysed.....

A trenchant piece from Nick Cohen in today's The Observer (January 9): 'Cowards of the left' (differently headlined in the print version: 'Our illiberal elite'):

"Many don't want to acknowledge the breakdown. Times when old certainties fall apart are unsettling. They force people to decide what they believe in: Do you want priests to be able to control 'their' people? Are you for fascism? If you answer 'no' to both questions, you will undoubtedly find when the battle is joined that you will have to spend as much time fighting the left as the right."

Well worth the read.

Philip, wondering what the story is behind that change of headline? Hm! Coughee and comfort for my cold! Aaaaaaaachooo!
