More Than Windmills Spinning at DECC

Troubled times at the department for windmills and other omni-shambles. Guido hears that the hunt is on for a new Special Advisor for the DECC – a suspected nark for No.10 to keep an eye on Greg Barker and John Hayes. Despite his high-Toryism, Hayes is felt to be “wandering off reservation”. Ed Llewellyn is said to be particularly unhappy with the larger than life Minister after telling the Prime Minister that he “wouldn’t hear a peep” from Hayes just hours before last week’s wind-farm mess. Meanwhile one source says that “Barker’s lost in all this green deal crud”.

The LibDem SpAds – Chris Nicolson and Kate Waring – are said to not like the idea of a spy one little bit, and Guido understands they have kicked up a mighty fuss. What was that pre-election promise about cutting the number of advisers?

    Get Britain Out says:

    EU STILL wastg BILLIONS every ar as auditors refuse to sign off accounts for 18th yr in a row

    Mitt Mormoney says:

    I wear magic underwear! And you Brits aren’t ready to host an Olympics! I liked meeting Mr Leader, Ed Miliband.

      Gordon the medicated says:

      Tough luck Mitt.
      It takes a special kind of man to win an election.

      Which is a shame.

        President Obumboy says:

        Hello Gordon, how was Cape Cod? Trust the boys scouts were to your liking.

        With my re-election I shall be following the British model for the United States – fags everywhere, Global Warming, Gay Marriage, $10 gas, Wars for Izzy, and more faggery. America wants change and boy will it get it.

      Rest of the World says:

      Thank you America.

        President Obathhouse says:

        My fellow fags, at times like this I look to the United Kingdom for inspiration and guidance in matters of high level cover ups of a fag/pederast-riddled establishment and getting the dumb shit plebs to believe in change.

          Lord Ali Stare Mac Alpine says:

          Quite right. Maggie looked after me and Leon Brittanica when we buggered boys. Toot toot!

    Armando says:

    are these people plagiarising my scripts?

      That would certainly explain how Ed Miliband got the job.
      And would explain pasty tax and Brookes and plebgate. And even explain something so unlikely as Sarah Teather.

      All of our politics since 2001 have been written by satirists.

    Kebab,The Lefty Tosser says:

    A man died and went to Heaven. As he stood in front of the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. He asked ‘What are those clocks?’.

    St. Peter replied ‘Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie=Clock. Whenever you lie, the hands on the clock. This one here is Mother Teresa’s. The hands have never moved so she has never lied. That one over there is Abraham Lincoln’s. It moved twice, so he only lied twice in his whole life.’

    ‘Well, where’s David Cameron’s clock?’ asked the man.

    ‘It’s in my office, I’m using it as a ceiling fan’.

    Wigam says:

    I am in agreement with Obama that a natio needs hope, but hope cannot be plan A

    Hope is not enough, action is also required.

      ÁC1 says:

      a false hope is all they’ll have left.

      You can build an economy on reciprocation, and you will destroy the economy with a lack of reciprocation. Welfare states are the opposite of reciprocal.

      Then again hope is a close cousin of that religious term faith, and marxism has always been a religion.

    Labour"Mole" in CCHQ says:

    Lessons that Cameron must learn from Mitt’s defeat

    Brown out and pay me damages says:

    Very tiresome.

    Grumpy Old Man says:

    i can understand the angst of Nicholson and Waring – who needs moles and leakers when LibDems are around?

      Ehtch says:

      Yes, Windy was named such for his weakness of his home-brewed cidar. PRAAAAP – opps, I am very Windy today.

      When I was young, my favorite in Camberwick Green was the bloke that had the garage, with his pick-up truck.

      Same fella did the french Magic Rounabout, whathername father, that’s her, Emma Thompson the actress, from beebland. Magic Roundabout as here,

        Ehtch says:

        If watching that clip of the Magic Roundabout won’t make you look at your spiff and ask yourself “what am I smoking”, then nothing will, said Florence.

    Ehtch says:

    My view of windmills, and the Severn hydro-electric barage (which I hope happens – non-nimbey) is “whar marvellous pieces of technology, will keep my laptop and mobile dodahs charged up in future.

    And shale gas exporation, it has to be done. And Jap Hitachi nuclear power stations, again has to be done, as long as the flood risk analysis is done, you could say, tidal swells and waves especially. And there needs to be two more Queen’s speach xmas kettles going on Dinorwig intantish hydro stations too in the UK,

    If you want the lights to stay on in the future, wake up all, even you losd of flannel, and you know who you are. Christ, we are fast approching 70 mill on our isle, and NI! There was a fraction of that when we first burned electrical lighbulbs in our homes.

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”

Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
