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 .

    What a NIMBY.

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

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

    According to http://www.stopclarewindfarm.com BT have withdrawn their application on the grounds of, er, lack of wind however apparently West Coast Energy would like to build one there.

    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?

    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.

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
