Easily the most interesting peer of the realm since Screaming Lord Sutch, the Viscount has been enthusiastically waging war on the warmists.
On a recent visit to Tasmania one of the warmists Mr Tony Press, chief executive of the Antarctic research centre, dismissed Monkton’s suggestion that there has been no global warming for at least 16 years, accused him of being unscientific and added the charge that Monkton was suggesting that scientists around the world were involved in “massive delusional group thinking”.
You can read Lord Monkton’s letter to the University of Tasmania <HERE>. If you are thinking of writing a letter of complaint you could find worse models to follow. The vice chancellor’s email address is in the letter, I took the time to drop him a line saying how interested I am in his reply.
Screaming Lord Sutch’s album Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends was named in a 1998 BBC poll as the worst album of all time.
Sutch founded the Official Monster Raving Loony Party in 1983, he contested over 40 elections, after standing against Margaret Thatcher in 1983 the deposit required from candidates was raised from £150 to £500. At the Bootle by-election in 1990 he secured more votes than the candidate of the Continuing Social Democratic Party (SDP), led by former Foreign Secretary David Owen. The ignominy was such that the SDP dissolved itself within days.
Several biographies have been written, sadly none were called Sutch ‘is life.
