The Guardian-reading lefties L&G had invited Joshua and me for Sunday Lunch at the new restaurant in the Kambos town square, the one with starched white tablecloths run by the grandson of Old Miranda. But the night before, Joshua and I wandered down for supper and I suggested that we try the new place for ourselves. Don’t get me wrong.

My late uncle Christopher Booker had the Guardian columnist George Monbiot, aka Moonbat, down as the maddest of the nest of vipers penning piffle for the loss-making rag owned by tax dodgers. Today Mr Moonbat takes aim at Dominic Cummings. His “crime”?

Dickhead of the decade George Monbiot of the Guradian has a book to plug and is all over the radio. Oh, which decade you ask? Every decade. Anyhow I have swapped emails with Jim Mellon on this as it concerns his company Agronomics (ANIC) which really interests me. I think today;s interims show the shares, at 9.25p are expensive but at a lower level there is a case for buying as I explain. I also look at Oracle (ORCP), correcting an error I made yesterday, Lekoil (LEK), Lamprell (LAM) and urge you to start donating to Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks HERE.

All journalists have opinions. None of us can be truly impartial as we have our own views and prejudices. If you are a columnist, that is to say you write opinion that is why you do what you do. The views of Polly Toynbee, George Monbiot and Owen Jones are well known. They are Big State money tree worshipping lefties and argue that line. On the other side Mark Steyn, Melanie Phillips or Peter Hitchens take a different tack. I do not hide my own libertarian take on life. But none of the above are reporting news and when doing that your prejudices do matter. You should bury your on news when reporting FACT.

As I tap out a few words on my laptop next to the bright blue sea it is about 27 degrees. It is T-shirt weather and the Mrs is forcing myself and Joshua to go for a swim in an unheated pool a bit later. It is hot here in Kardamili. But as you can see in the two photos below, in the higher points of the taygetos mountains behind us, the last remnants of the winter snow still cling on. These are not the highest points of the range but Al Gore would be mortified to see global warming still on the ground in the sourthnmost part of Europe in May. The computer models, global warming nutjobs like George Monbiot and the entire population of Canada, plus 99% of peer group approved scientists all predicted desertification not this.

Step brother Tom is like all of my family ( bar enlightened little step sister Felicity) a Guardian reading lefty and so sends me an article by lunatic global warming evangelist George Monbiot from the rag of choice of public sector workers arguing that Britain is very corrupt. Moonbat makes a couple of points which I agree with but on others he is either wrong or selective. I think Britain is incredibly corrupt but my analysis is rather different to that of Moonbat. And more honest to boot.
