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?

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

      Which is a shame.

        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.

        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.

      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’.

    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.

      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.

    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.

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.”
