The Guardian reports on “Climate Week splitting the green movement”
Steele responds that this is “a big tent campaign. Climate Week is all about showcasing solutions, we’re trying to create a national occasion which everyone can seize, and in order to do that we need to include the major areas of our economy like banking and commerce. We are focused on the best things that people do.”
Hey, compost-for-brains. If you were “focused” on the “best things that people do” in banking you’d be getting the Co-operative Bank to sponsor your grotesque wank-fest (while closing your eyes to its financing of Manchester Airport). But they wouldn’t be able to pony up the kind of money you think you need to make this a ‘success’, and a nice little CV-enhancer for you and your greenwashing chums.
RBS? You have got to be shitting me.
And for his encore, Mr Steele is organising a conference with the working title “Engaging with and listening to your underlings.” Keynote speakers Hosni Mubarak and Muammar Gaddafi (tbc).
