John Agnew - or Stuart as he likes to be known - is not the brightest of sparks.
He is a self-appointed expert on matters of which he knows nothing, but it is on the subject of climate change where he really provides the best entertainment. According to his blog, there is no such thing as global warming because it was a bit chilly on his farm last weekend. He writes "According to the last figures I heard, we had not actually warmed at all in the 2000s!" Where he heard that we can only speculate. Perhaps he was briefed on the subject by that other buffoon and wannabe Lord, Mad Monckton, UKIP's resident loony.
Average temperatures for the period 2001-2010 were 0.20°C above those of 1991-2000. Not a particularly startling statistic, but one that exposes Agnew's stupidity for what it is.
By extension, Agnew could argue that are no such things as tidal waves, because his farm was not hit by one last Tuesday. But that really is the level of intellect in Farage's UKIP. And people wonder why the party is not taken seriously.
