Being environmentally conscious great way of annoying parents, say 10 year-olds

PRIMARY school children with half a term’s learning about climate change have discovered it is a brilliant way of annoying the sh*t out of everybody. 

The ten-year-olds are bringing up single-use plastics, ocean pollution and melting sea ice at every opportunity and cannot believe how effectively it winds up their parents.

Tom Booker of Stafford said: “When Dad took the wrong turn the other day, I told him that all the extra petrol he’d used had killed a hawksbill turtle so he should be more careful. His knuckles were white.

“And when I’m trailing around Tesco with Mum, I check each and every item she puts in the trolley to make sure the packaging’s recyclable. If not, I order her to put it back.

“Miss Smithson at school said that our parents have caused these problems and it’s up to my generation to solve them, which I immediately recognised meant I could give them endless sh*t with no comeback.

“Now I get why rock stars’ sons become climate protesters. It’s such an exquisite form of revenge.”

Mother Sarah Booker said: “I might make him do a month vegan. I can, and he can’t stop me.”

Britain can prosper by mining the moon

There will be no problems in the post-Brexit economy because we will simply mine rare minerals from the moon, sovereign British territory since the Cavor expedition of 1901. Also convicts and undesirables can be sent there.

James Bond is real

James Bond is real, has always been real, is out there fighting for Britain and will return us to our rightful status as world leaders. He and Boris have shared several girlfriends.
