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…

    Time for a change. Hopefully the people in Suffolk don’t look as thick as the ones in Kirkcaldy who keep voting for Gordon Brown.

    I still cannot get my head around being paid by outside companies whilst serving as an MP / Lord / Baron etc – it is obvious they are being bought & paid for.

    Fuck the constituents in South Suffolk. If they’re so stupid as to keep voting for the self-serving c u n t then they deserve to be ignored.

    Did he pay child support for his love child and does he even have a relationship with his son or daughter from that affair, or is he another waste of space who gets a woman up the duff and then runs a mile like the odious Cecil Parkinson?

    A nice lady rang me from the Labour party and said they wanted to invite me to speak at their conference in the autumn. In return for reading a speech they’ve written about how the coalition are to blame for Mark’s death, they’ll pay me lots of money and free booze and fags. And she also said if they win the next election, they’ll give me something called an NBE or something. Or maybe it was a JCB. Whatever, she said it’s really good and I get to meet the Queen and have a nice day out.

      Ah, because there are no fruitcakes in the mainstream parties are there?

      No Labour councillor for example, would claim to have copulated with aliens?

      No Limp Democrat MP would be anti-Semitic would they?

      No Tory MPs have ever had a room dedicated to the German Nazi Party and its memorabilia for example?

    I heard Tim Yeo questioning the personnel of various electric companies today. His attempt to sound so caring for his constituents was sick making. Having a go at those engineers who gave up their christmases with their families to help those affected by the storms was a disgrace. What was he doing at Christmas? Certainly not out with the engineers who had to wade through flooded areas to do repairs. He is too busy making millions and will not get his hands dirty. For goodness sake, you voters ,get rid of this guy- he has had a fantastic run and only wants to stay an MP to enrich himself even further.
