Here are two items from the Independent on Sunday:

IoS – Brown to wrongfoot Cameron with 100,000 new eco-homes

IoS – Murdoch: I’m proud to be green: In one of the most unexpected conversions since Saul of Tarsus hit the road to Damascus, Rupert Murdoch is turning into a green campaigner. He is making the whole of his worldwide operations carbon neutral and setting out to “educate and engage” his readers and viewers about global warming.

And today, we have this from the Downing Street Echo:

The Sun – EXCLUSIVE: Brown the builder gets going

The Sun – Only Brown can fill Tony’s shoes

Oh, and this shining endorsement from the Page 3 girl:

The Sun, Page 3 - 14 May 2007

Memo to Rebekah Wade:

Prepare your troops for an all-out assault on global terrorism warming:

Core messages:

– We could all die horribly. Quite possibly tomorrow.
– This must unite in this struggle and not let petty differences over foreign policy sway us from our task.
– What is done is done. Let us look to the future and work together toward our goal a common goal.
– Anyone who dares dredge up the past or have a pop at us about anything we’re up to presently does not take global warming seriously, and is therefore an enemy of the people.

Immediate tasks:

– Register ‘Carbon Cheats’ as a trademark.
– Provide evidence that the EU is driving climate change.
– Oh, and have someone investigate the average carbon output of an illegal immigrant.

In short, nothing much changes… but we go green from today.

Murdoch Smash!
