Exposed: Secret Blair denial scandal shame!

Attention Media Watch. The Daily Telegraph, employer of so-called 'blogger' Tim Blair, has been caught up in a shameful act of climate change denial.

At first glance, this story about snails causing a road crash in Germany appears to be a quirky news item - the kind of mildly amusing story about an unusual event you might see in the newspaper every day. However, there is more to the story. Much, much more.

In as blatant a case of denialism as you will ever see, Blair's employer has apparently refused to discuss root causes of the incident, as reported in the third paragraph here. Hang your head in shame, Blair. Make no mistake, one day you will be filling sandbags for Tim Flannery.

Over to you, bald dude.

British Rail has blamed train delays on the "wrong type of leaves" and the "wrong type of snow".

Maybe this pile up was caused by the "wrong type of snail"?

In France, one would add garlic and parsley, flambe (with a burning Citreon) and voila! Fine roadside dining.

Help! I'm being held prisoner by Margo's Maid at Margo's'.

Revenge of the Snails. It's a perfect Scifi movie.

Kae - it's a peculiar trait here that the back button does not seem to work once you're in - I'm not sure why.

Once you enter the ShadowLands, I guess, there is no easy way out. (mmh, sounds like a slogan!)
