Tim Yeo: Satire Is Dead

Guido couldn’t believe his eyes when he read what Tim Yeo had to say about the Tory party conference today. Apparently:

“Conference has become too dominated by lobbyists and special interest groups, and it is driving away those genuinely interested in party matters.”

This from the same Tim Yeo who makes over £100,000 a year from green “special interests” while chairing the Energy and Climate Change select committee. The same Tim Yeo who quit a lucrative green job after a series of conflict of interest allegations. The same Tim Yeo who called for more flights to China on the same day his company agreed a huge contract with the Chinese government. He’s got some nerve…

          The reasoning is fine; but wtf is HMG doing buying Japanese cars? Let alone Eco lemons like hybrids? Every pound exported has to be earned back; same with state employees, they should be the fewest possible with security and defence the prime issues! No state employee adds value.

        Best thing for you Handy would be to lie low for a while. Once the Jimmy Savile enquiry really gets going there’s no knowing who else will come under the microscope. The girls (and boys) are busy lining up to tell their stories. It might get very uncomfortable for you. Suggest you hide up in Spain.

        So what?

        As long as he spends it in his local community supporting real jobs & B2B economic activity in the real economy.

        More money in the pockets of those that earned it means more money going into real growth – not Labour “growth” – taxing the life out of people to waste on Diversity Co-ordinators & illegal wars & bungs to the Unions.

        Now fuck off.

    John Snow has blotted his credentials tonight on the CH4 news.

    Two climate change scaremongers giving it their all and Snow’s mealy mouthed cravenness.

    Umm Snow where was the balance in the piece? – who are you going to allow onto CH4 to put the counter arguments to the global warmonsters?

    Droughts happen! Floods happen! Ice melts every now and then …. So there’s been what some call a ‘seven year drought in the USA’ – but hey – The Pharoes of old in Egypt got their ‘come-uppance’ for lying to the peasants about that it was the Pharoe King who brought y’all the rainy season – be grateful. Only after a seven year drought back then about 2000 years ago the peasants ‘wisened up’ to the ‘little coterie of cohorts’ behind the Pharoes (Spin advising wise ‘old’ men who duped them) – and saw their bull5hitting off.

      The moral of the original story was to save in the good years to carry you through the bad years.

      And that made perfect sense.

      Until the 2 Eds came along and advocated spending in the good years and even more spending in the bad years borrowed from the years to come.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
