Head over to Lucia's for an explanation and the video. And you can tweet him @VerminSupreme

Can't head over to Lucia's. Her stupid software has blocked my IP address.

No problem for me (from France)

I'm blocked from Lucia's at home in Thailand but I can access it from work offshore Mozambique.

I wonder where he got a welly boot that he can fit over his head? Do you think the other one is in the wash?

Heh. Reminds me of the Nimbin Festival in Australia in 1973 - the first great counter-culture event here. Being in the sub-tropics, it rained. My friend Martin started the Hari-Gumboots movement, which led a group of faithful, chanting followers to the pub each day, to the disgust of the hippies.

Me, I stayed in Sydney where there was electricity and running hot water.

Truly sad.

Is this the level?

Having now seen the video the guy with the welly boot on his head is clearly not playing with a full set. The other lot are just a rabble.

How is it that the rabble is now on the side of the establishment? i wonder what they feel about that.

Haven't you EVER heard of gumboot diplomacy?

The following page was set up by Lucia to allow unblocking of IPs.

A fellow with a lofty sole.

There can often be certain visual markers, plainly visible from afar. They’re mainly connected with a dysfunctional dress sense. They tend to wear an extra or curious item of clothing which makes them look silly but you just know, they absolutely think it somehow makes them chic, exotic or at least different. It’s that bad hat or overly loud tie or the wrong livid colour of hair dye or blasts from the past, like wearing bell-bottom trousers. It’s the sartorial manifestation of that same blind spot of self-reflection, inherent in being a prat.

So true ...

Outside the Heartland Conference

A welly boot is odd enough when all alone the right way round
But when upon a head it is upended
And that head holds 2 per cent of the brains to be found
In an anti-science demo by dupes established

That welly-boot is worth a sketch and also a word
That helps convey the message clear
That deluded minds did there uphold the most absurd
Climate views that rich NGOs hold dear

They hold them dear for they bring loot
In buckets from the gullible and decent
But hold, there’s something new afoot
Something that’s quite recent.

The climate game, so wicked and so sorry
Is before our eyes unravelling
Only 50 drones turned up to megaphone their folly
While sense and worth were talking

Is that how you end up if you are always putting your foot in your mouth?

Wannabe Boot-neck, he'd never pass selection though.

Thanks for the link, I'll try and use it from work (it blocks me too). Funny thing is I saw all the talk about being blocked at her site and had never had any trouble until I clicked on a link from another blog to something at her site.

Kiwi icon Fred Dagg did a great song about gumboots

Ah, Fred Dagg, haven't heard that name since 1976. Thanks Andy.

For all Vermin Supremes faults, he is probably the least corrupt and most honest political candidate in the USA, and is honestly expressing his true feelings not just knowingly following an agenda. Besides, isn't America entitled to their very own Official Monster Raving Loony Party?

Sorry you got blocked. Unfortunately, I can't just lift the software because some things just hammer my site and make it crash. Unfortunately, owing to presenting shared IP addresses, people in the UK are very likely to be blocked. It's worth recording my email and emailing me so I can unblock and also find out if a 'rule' I'm using to block things is unduly harsh. (I need to verify I haven't screwed up the unblock page to. I'll put checking on my todo list for Tueday. It's a holiday here.)

I've actually managed to get the hammering under control-- but I do suspect some 'rules' that block people are too harsh. Unfortunately there is no way for me to know for sure unless people whose names I recognize email me.

Vermin Supreme. Supreme garbage. Natural attraction.
