The Voice judge Will.i.am goes to Oxford University climate change debate in gas-guzzling helicopter | Mail Online (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2148557/The-Voice-judge-Will-goes-Oxford-University-climate-change-debate-gas-guzzling-helicopter.html)
Despite his highly polluting journey to the university, speaking at the talk, the star said: 'Climate change should be the thing that we are all worried and concerned about as humans on this planet, how we affect the planet, our consumption, and how we treat the place that we live in.'
But his transportation to the event did not escape the attention of those at the university - or physics professor Mr Allen.
He said: 'The irony didn’t escape everybody. But he’s committed to the issues and he’s written songs about it.'
He added that a better understanding of the problems is probably more important than whether he travelled in the helicopter.
Anyone still wonder why Clarkson continues to take the environmentalists on :ok:

What an absolute idiot, Clarkson is right, they are full of it!

They're all the same…
Don't do what I do do what I say. And more of the same.
I saw on the news this week that a number of politicians from will be meeting to have a conference about european debt. What a croc of poo poos.
Simple. Stop trying to play Robin Hood and robbing the hard working of all their hard earned cash to give to the parasitic low life that refuse to earn a living.
Next dismantle the political machine and start again with a team on performance related pay.
Bring back all of the militaries from conflicts worldwide and repel borders.
Stop spending millions upon milions every year telling people how they should live and take a fraction of those millions and give it to those that gave for us to say thank you for keeping us free.
I could go on and on, I have a monstrous rant building…….

Out of interest does anybody know the identity of that machine? I did not know there was heavy metal like that anywhere in the UK just for corporate rental? I'd imagine its hours must be very low given the current economic climate that is ongoing.

It belongs to Paul Wexford (Victoria's Secrets, Bath and Bodyworks etc) but operated by Air Harrods from Stansted.

G-LAWX Sr no is 920007 i think so very low in the production number.
used a lot i believe for transporting pop/rock stars about while on tour and other such stuff. supposedly only got around 700 hrs!
Not the most fancy VIP machine, but its got a corporate interior and carries 9 pax with a galley, bar and a toilet.

He was more worried about making an Entrance than the Climate debate no doubt!

I had the pleasure of having a tour round that 92 back when it first came into the country .... just wondering how that tan leather-covered lavatory seat is holding out? Never struck me as being wholly hygenic :yuk:

Why - did you have trouble hitting the bullseye?

Cant imagine she would have too many problems

Whirls the toilet is still holding up well.
The cabin is set to carry 16. No galley.

I presume Air Harrods only take the best of the best when looking to fill a Pilot Seat?
Shear curiosity of course!
25th May 2012, 05:46
Presumably the pilot's seat did not spin round like The Voice seats? haha
The owner's correct name/spelling is Leslie Wexner, a measly #248 in the Forbes list of billionaires (http://www.forbes.com/profile/leslie-wexner/)!!

Like many on this forum, I'm sure, I declined permission to Forbes to name me in their list.
One must protect one's reputation, after all.

me too, you wouldn't want to be on the top 500 in this country anyrate, cos they're the ones to get the guts taxed right out of them in the name of this blessed carbon tax. That is the top 500 corporations anyrate.
No probs with me evil twin for a good rant, go right ahead.
We got some figures on goose Stuart Blanch's (Darwin envirnmentakl centre) idea to harness the sun's energy and sell it via cable to parts in South East Asia.
The ex air force engineer we contacted that did the figures had to listen to the Q & A tape where Blanch spelt it out, several times, to see whether he was hearing strange noises in his head or not.
A conservative cost of 75 billion every 25 years for starters just for the 120 square miles of solar arrays, which would need cleaning every few days, and so it goes on, cables would never be big enough to shift the current which would never have enough coming in this end to shovel it out the other etc.
anyone interested to see some workings on it send PM, be happy to oblige. I suppose you have noticed green power (solar companies) going to the wall like lemmings all over Euro of late. Get in quick buy some cheap panels!

... robbing the hard working of all their hard earned cash to give to the parasitic low life that refuse to earn a livingNot a too-flattering naming for corporate top managers, investment bankers and the like, but spot on :ok:.
(Sorry for OT.)
25th May 2012, 17:45
You're completly wrong:=-It's not corporate managers ,Investment Banks,or business owners. :rolleyes:It's the political hacks & Morons that pass laws that (Crush) over regulate (steal) Tax the livin shyt out of the working man. No business likes that carbon tax unless it's on the governments receving end of the bucket,:eek: Coruption & political payoffs.:ugh:
25th May 2012, 18:53
Hmmm .... if the political hacks & morons really tax the living sh... out of everyone, shouldn't their countries (budgets) be extremely wealthy, while corporate fat cats and investment bankers have an increasingly hard time getting by along with the working man and those who run a business? As far as I can see, it's rather working man, business owners/SMEs, and public budgets having a hard time as opposed to those who reap money instead of earning it. Anyway, OT and has already been discussed in another thread somewhere.
25th May 2012, 23:41
political hack taxers are spenders, I guess you havn't heard of Greece?

Maybe it's not that bad.
Could this be a Labor Party Genius!!
Finally Labor has somebody that
can organise a root in a brothel.
I think we have something here that is for first time proven, well so they say. Seems that one of our blessed statutory authorities - drum roll - "Fair Work Australia", have a finding that one of our federal politicians can actually 'organise' a root in a brothel.
Whether it was he or others doing the rootin' or bein rooted, with large chunks of the Health Services Union members money, is somewhat a mirthful point.
However we all think it a proper root, and I think he feels that he has rooted himself properly and the whole damn deal is the biggest root of all time. He gives the appearance of being a bit of a prat that wouldn't give a root though.
One thing for sure, there's bugger all rooting for him over here at this pont.
So just maybe, they aren't all a total root.
Oh, the FWA investigation only took four years to complete, which was another root which we all suspect is because his vote was critical in a minority Government that was supported by a couple of looney independants that we reckon aren't worth a root.
Otherwise he would've been chucked to the dogs long ago, in a manner of speaking. Don't know if anyone has yet asked him, can he play a piano?
