Yeo: Judge Me By My Record

Tim Yeo grimaced his way through an interview on the BBC News channel this morning, saying through gritted teeth that he was “quite happy to be judged on my record”. Worth taking a look at his career highlights then:

  • Forced to resign in disgrace in 1994 over a second love-child scandal, this time with a Conservative councillor, after he had told constituents: “It is in everyone’s interests to reduce broken families and the number of single parents. I have seen from my own constituency the consequences of marital breakdown.”
  • Failed in his bid to become Tory leader.
  • Golfing correspondent for Country Life and the Financial Times.
  • Became chairman of the Energy and Climate Change select committee despite company directorships at energy firms TMO Renewables, AFC Energy and ITI Energy, lobbying the government on green energy policy while earning thousands each month from green energy companies.
  • Hosted events on the Parliamentary Estate for green investments firms without properly declaring interests and refused to say if he took  a cut:
  • Exposed by an undercover Sunday Times investigation offering to coach an energy company boss for an appearance before his committee.
  • Spends all his time playing golf, ignoring his constituents in South Suffolk.

Judge away…

Gaia Fawkes Quote of the Day

Bishop Hill:

Recognition that fossil fuels are of vital necessity for Africans might be off-message; it might impact on funding; the “colleagues” might be upset. But silence in the face of such a death toll is inexplicable.
