The Parody that is Lord Monckton
~ Anyone who has followed climate change has doubtless heard of the 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, Christopher Monckton, the self-styled "Lord" Monckton. Even our appallingly ignorant Republican party has swallowed his schtick, notwithstanding that he could easily have been a contestant in Monty Python's Upper Class Twit of the Year.
He is the consummate blowhard, which makes this parody all the more exquisite:
Don't feel too much pity for this pompous fraud. He calls himself a member of the British House of Lords, although he is not. That institution took the unprecedented step of issuing him a letter setting him straight, and putting a notice on their website. Undaunted, Monckton stood for election 4 times, never receiving a single vote, apparently not even from himself. That's serious twit cred.
