It's one rule for them, and another for the rest of us.
Trudie Styler, wife of Sting and self-styled eco-warrior, recently took a helicopter to travel 80 miles from Wiltshire to Devon, a journey that would have taken less than two hours by train.
The actress and film producer is forever harping on about saving the environment, having set up the Rainforest Campaign in the late 1980s with her pop star husband.
The Stings are known for eating only organic food, supposedly grown on their land, although one member of staff recently admitted to serving up nonorganic salad from the supermarket.
So what was Styler thinking as she clambered into her gas-guzzling chopper, off to stay with friend and fellow greenie Zac Goldsmith on his organic farm in Devon?
Her own home, Lake House, a Jacobean manor in the Avon Valley, is conveniently located just six miles out of Salisbury, from where frequent trains run to the West Country.
On Monday David Cameron announced plans to crackdown on domestic flights by slapping a green tax on them, so perhaps Styler is enjoying the luxury of a private helicopter while she can get away with it.
But this isn't the first time the Stings have been caught out. In 2000 the couple threatened the Ministry of Defence with legal action if a nearby airfield were to be expanded.
It later emerged Sting had twice used the airfield in question from which to roar off in his private jet.
Styler's personal assistant declined to comment on her boss's travel arrangements when I called.
The Sting's ... ha ha.
This global warming thing is exposing Liberals big time. Even Jonny six pack is getting it.
I've heard of bio-diesel fuel, but I haven't heard of bio-JP-1 yet. Perhaps Ms. Sting would volunteer to flight-test it.

... by God know how many family serfs.
Conservation is for the Little People.

This "Gore-Bull Warming" scam isn't about "saving Mother Earth" or any of that, it's about more control over us peons, serfs and proles, while the upper crust jet about.
Power and control.
Plain and simple.
And this is a surprise to whom!!??
All of these limousine liberals tell us how to live OUR lives and do what they damn good and well please. I don't necessarily like him, but I respect Ed Begley for "talking the talk and walking the walk".
So far, of all the celebrity environazis, he's about the only one who does.
Is there some kind of law somewhere that says rich environmentalists have to be hypocrites?

They're called "algoreithms".
Lifestyles of the ecofascist jet-set.
I went to Wikipedia for Sting. He has about four other "very desirable residences" - old British real estate expression. Different parts of the globe. He has earned what he has under the capitalist system. Hard to knock that system in the light of other systems. He sure does'nt begrudge himself.
I am sent into happy chuckles at Rush Limbaugh and his advice on the guilty feelings of the successful. Once in a while he runs it on his show. Working class myself, I wish Sting and his eye catching lady well. My advice as follows:
Enjoy it while yer can
Does Giacomo only eat oats and alfalfa?
