No politics

No politics until further notice. Principles to selectively weigh up. Petulance to maintain. Self-righteousness to keep. Sorry..


After discussions, I now feel free to slander without reference to accuracy. So I shall. In tomorrow’s column. I apologise for the conceit, but I wanted to feign indignation before matters had been resolved. I had to be churlish with my employer and to my readers, and I apologise if you think I’ve had the balance wrong over the past 10 years.

Thank you to everyone who has telegraphed, rung, faxed, offered their children or commented on this post, here and on radio.

Where is the sea level rise?

Many readers have sent me this graph from Nils-Axel Mörner completely debunking the warmist meme that sea levels are rising;

Reader Professor Bob tells me you won't find this graph anywhere in the IPCC reports - or indeed any graph "back tilted to its uncorrected original". Once more it is left to the professionalism of climate skeptics to provide the public with unbiased data and analysis.

Cameron's announcement on crime expert

British prime minister David Cameron's decision to appoint a US street crime expert as an adviser after recent riots is a "slap in the face", a police body said on Saturday:

William Bratton, credited with curbing street crime as police chief in New York, Los Angeles and Boston, said he would help the British government develop strategies on dealing with widespread rioting and gang culture. 
The move comes after hooligans, arsonists and looters seemingly took control of streets with ease in parts of England's major cities during four days of riots. 
But a leader of the Greater Manchester Police Federation, which represents police interests', said Britain did not need somebody "who lives 5,000 miles away", and said the police had the situation under control.

Demand an end to alarmist reporting

The editor of the fiercely warmist Sunday Age offers you an opportunity:

Ever complained about media coverage of climate change in the media? Here’s your chance to change it

Feel free to help this paper reform its deceits and exaggerations. Because in fact:

predictions of sea level rises now seem to have been greatly exaggerated;

ice loss in the Arctic has not worsened in four years;

no one denies global warming is happening;

Let the Sunday Age know. Demand better journalism.


Another milestone for my TV show

Thanks very much again.

After just three months the total audience for our show has dropped out of the ratings surveys:

The Clot Report 109,000  
The Clot Report Encore 89,000

Our lowest numbers ever. We’re chuffed.

Rates must go up and they will

Terry McCrann once again does his analysis ahead of today's Reserve Bank board meeting

The Reserve Bank really has no choice. It must lift its official cash rate (today); and it will... 
Now a rate rise will come absent only some form of global financial meltdown before Tuesday. And the warring politicians in the US still failing to agree to lift their debt ceiling would NOT of itself constitute such an event.

Terry tells me he's the man to watch on monetary policy and I hear he has picked 18 of the last 2 moves in official interest rates.

Well done Terry. I'm sure today will be no exception. Read about the RBA's decision here.
