“My only objection to saving the planet is that I am sick of being harangued about it by worthies…It’s the suburban eco-bores who drive me nuts, those dishevelled zealots in their chunky handknits and home-made jewellery who so ostentatiously flaunt their environmental correctness fir the rest of us to applaud.

You cannot turn on ABC radio these days without encountering some open-line drone banging on about the virtues of her recycled papier mache toilet or the waterless washing machine (fuelled entirely by possum poo).”

Mike Carlton is annoyed by the enviromentally correct.
