Tim Yeo Breaks Wind Pledge

Hot air has always billowed out of Tim Yeo’s mouth, none more so than when he advocated bribing local communities to allow onshore wind farms near their homes. The prospect of upsetting his own constituents soon saw this ingenious idea kicked into touch though. The green guru is now fighting against green development in his own backyard.

Apparently he is “determined to help the community fight the inappropriate proposal” made by BT to build a wind farm in South Suffolk. A sudden bout of common sense? Or a lack investment in this particular green cash cow?

    He is a Tory after all, what do you expect? A rich hypocrite on the take and on the make getting rich off the back of the taxpayer, just a typical ordinary Tory out for what he can get, living the high life.

    The wind turbine output today is very high at 40% of installed capacity. Still less than 8% of demand though.

    Wish I could put up a few and fleece the old consumer though. Those subsidies are great .

    An alternative budget would be done on an annual basis which, under EU rules, requires only qualified majority votes.

    What a NIMBY.

    Yeo is as self interested as any politician when it comes to securing his tax-payer funded income source.

    BT building fucking windfarms?…wouldnt they be better off employing more Indians to answer their phones when you report a fault.
    8 minutes waiting this morning, before Gandhi started interrogating me about all my contact details, emails etc…then telling me the fault will be attended to within 4 days.
    Yeah, great

    The greenish whatsinnitforme guru, master of interest of conflict. This time he is fighting for his constituents and not one of his core business segments. Perhaps he’s going straight?

    Mike Hogan says:

    I thought, reading the headline, that are our friend had farted. I now see that I am mistaken but then does he know that “wind” is methane? it does get complicated. Have you noticed that when Tim Yeo talks it is as if he has indigestion?

    Merseyside: 98% white, 100% Scouse though.

    If it’s a choice between Scousers or sheep-shaggers, I think I’ll stick with the Darkies…!

    I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve supplied on your place. They’re incredibly convincing and definately will definitely operate. Still, the particular posts can be short for first timers. Could you you should extend individuals a bit by subsequent precious time? Thank you for the particular post.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
