Watch: Tim Yeo Stung By Sunday Times
Offered To Be £7,000-a-Day Advocate and Lobby Government

It’s all over for Tim Yeo. The Energy and Climate Change select committee chairman has been stung by the Sunday Times, offering to become a paid advocate for a fake firm for £7,000-a-day.

“The reporters approached Yeo posing as representatives of a solar energy company offering to hire him as a paid advocate to push for new laws to boost its business for a fee of £7,000 a day. He told them he could commit to at least one day a month, despite the fact that he already held four private jobs and was in negotiations to take a further two. Setting out what he could offer, the MP said: “If you want to meet the right people, I can facilitate all those introductions and I can use the knowledge I get from what is quite an active network of connections.” Asked if that extended to government figures, Yeo replied: “Yes.” The House of Commons code of conduct forbids members from acting as paid advocates, including by lobbying ministers. Yeo also said he could help them by guiding them on submitting evidence to his own committee, which he described as “a good way of getting your stuff on the map”.”

Confirming what we knew all along: Yeo is one of parliament’s most shameless Honorable Members. Guido has hunted him for years, you can read all this blog’s stories on Yeo here. Westminster is for sale…

UPDATE: Funny that he mentions his “active network”, on Newsnight a couple of years ago Guido accused Yeo of of abusing his position as an MP to facilitate a green investment network. He threatened to sue…

            He won’t go. He will have Dave’s private backing because Yeo and SamCam have the same environmental agenda (you know the one that involves screwing the little people) and SamCam is the one who wears the trousers in that house. Mercer went because he hates Dave and had no top cover.

            Meanwhile when none where paying attention, the green nazis decided to cull thousands more poor and vulnerable people, every year.

            “The government sneaked in a new amendment that amounts to a decarbonisation target by the back door.”

            “By 2020, [the amendment] said, Britain must reduce its electricity use by “103 terawatt hours”, rising by 2030 to “154 terawatt hours”. This could have been understood only by someone aware that we currently use each year some 378 “terawatt hours”. So what was being proposed was that this must be cut down in six years by 27 per cent – more than a quarter – rising 10 years later to a cut of more than 40 per cent, or two fifths.”

            The green fuel poverty program, is still on track.

            He’ll get away with because no one in Parliament thinks this is wrong. Mercer got the bums rush because it suited Dave to be rid of a critic not that what he did was wrong. Yeo reeks of corruption but then the whole lot are at it. SamCam is Dave’s master and the agenda on this one will be set by her. Green is Good because it’s a direct tax on ordinary people who cannot avoid it unlike the elite who both earn from it and don’t pay it.

We seem to be edging back to 1991 to 1997 Tory back biting, dodgy dealing, and general sleaze, that was what brought the Tory government down in the past and look what you got a Shakespearian actor and Gordon, a stage managed sham, dodgy dealing, manipulating information to go to war on false pretences, the Tories actually voted for it. It is no wonder the electorate are getting ready give the two main parties a good kicking by voting UKip, that is in spite of knowing nothing little or nothing of their policies actually are, except for getting out of the common market (or to be more correct the European Union)

    Thoughts on the Scoundrel and green religion says:

    Green zealots are an unscientific soft touch ripe to be exploited by greedy politicians/business people.

    Green bubble is like the banking/housing bubble. Everyone now says no one saw financial crisis coming when in reality many did and ten years from now the pundits will say no one saw the man made global warming scam.

    Greens are prepared to pay and suffer to avoid conventional fuels and it’s easy for them to be exploited.

    Yeo is a disaster most commentators have been watching for years waiting for his hubris to trip him up. The religion of man made global warming has until now made him untouchable.

    Zoe Williams of the Guardian probably still thinks it’s ok to be a criminal as long as you are a green criminal.

    Diane Abott supports Yeo..Nuff said.

    He’ll still keep his money though and expect him to protest his innocence to the end.

    Unlike most good films the Yeo baddy will probably win, if making mucho Wonga is considered winning.

    Tim Yeo is available to lobby for green scams says:

    I totally refute this story.

    I did not say that I was available to lobby on behalf of green scammers for £7000 per day.

    It was £8000.

    This is a massive one. For the books.

    I don’t see how any history of the AGW will be written without including the Yeo episode in it.

    What is the effect this story will have on the willingness of (97% of the) British people to believe in AGW?

    And especially to pay for such schemes?

    Tree rings and climate satellites and so on were simply a fig leaf for this kind of cash.
