You'll Burn Twigs and Be Happy

If you go down to the woods today - they might have gone! At least that's already the case in Poland, where the liberal political elite are telling people to replace heat from Russian gas and coal with sticks foraged from their local forest.

The ruling Law and Justice Party has told chilly Poles that they can 'help beat Putin' by gathering fallen wood, although they are also told to ask permission from the forestry owners first. Wood-hunters are also warned that they can't actually cut down trees, but twigs and the occasional branch brought down by the wind can be picked up and taken home.

Millions of Poles live in Communist-era high rise flats or apartment blocks, so it is unclear just how many of them will actually be able to take advantage of the warmongering government's 'kindly' advice. 

It's not clear yet whether British or American politicians will offer the same advice to their subjects, but with many UK tower blocks still clad with highly flammable boarding, it has to be hoped that such ridiculous and condescending advice would be ignored.

We can, however, imagine President Macron getting in on the act: "The peasants have no gas." "Then let them burn twigs!"

While we have your attention, we would like to remind you of our Emergency Ukraine Appeal

While BILLIONS of Dollars pours into western Ukraine, the beleaguered people in the east have been forgotten and abandoned to starve or freeze to death. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN! In conjunction with our brethren on the ground in the area I am asking you to dig deep and send your immediate financial support (as best you can) to our EMERGENCY UKRAINE WAR APPEAL!
