Any Way the Wind Yeos, Nothing Really Matters to Tim

One more week of voting down in South Suffolk as absentee MP Tim Yeo tries to grease up his local association.

Fast forward through the above video of Tim Yeo meeting with concerned constituents on Friday about windmills being built in the area and, at any given point, rather than listening to their worries, chances are you will see their MP absent-mindedly playing with his phone. For almost the entire hour, other than when he was speaking of course. Perhaps he was texting the Prime Minister…

As chairman of the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee, Tim Yeo was instrumental in setting targets for building windmills across the country. Yeo has raked in a fortune from his involvement in “green energy” firms and is outspoken in their support, even telling wind turbine makers that with opponents, “frankly, we need to be prepared to bribe them”. The wind turbine manufacturers who help to finance his trade association will be shocked to discover that, rather than bribing locals, he is backing them in opposing the building of windmills in his constituency near IpswichHis attachment to wind energy has been blown away as he fights to hold on to his seat as local Tories vote on whether or not to reselect him.

Radio 4 went down to Sudbury at the weekend to speak to some of his constituents and get their say. Their report found that two thirds of the people they stopped did not have a kind word to say about troughing Tim:

South Suffolk Conservative Assocoation, you have been warned…

    I would not trust Tim Yeo as far as I could throw him . He is arrogant and all
    he seems to care about is how he can make money out of the green energy lobby.

      All shall be judged.

      Yeo – Tim. – fraud, deceit, malfeasance, corruption. Abuse of office.
      Verdict – Guilty!
      Sentence – Tied to a wind turbine for eternity.

      *there has been clemency shown here. Most days the blades will not turn.

What a wanker you are, no fucker likes Yeo, not even his own mother who, I’m told, cut out her own womb with a rusty razor blade so as to avoid bringing any more fucking humongous c#u#n#t#s like him into the world. One can only hope your own ugly mother did the same after you were born you fucking dumb spacca.

      Actually if you read the whole piece the Daily mirror gets mentioned only once and only after they have NoW and Coulson’s names up front. Right after the word mirror is Rebecca Brooke’s. this leads into the remainder of the story about NoW etc.

      This is classic bias. Its not front and centre and sandwiching the Mirror in the middle of the other names allows a journalist to say I referred to it.

      At the end of the day its a classic journalistic trick used to hide the bits they do not want you to concentrate on. That the BBC should employ these tactics is despicable and shows they remain full of left wing bias. The stories can now refocus on the NoW and nothing more will be said about the Mirror

      Classic dark art really.

    Interesting trivia on number of EA vehicles from the Avoncliff Blog, which even I didn’t know: “To carry out its field duties, the EA operates a fleet of 4,747 company cars funded on contract hire with full maintenance (at high expense, along with the documented abuse of the mileage claim back system highlighted in this blog), with an additional 1,920 badged 4x4s. That’s nearly 7,000 vehicles (plus trucks) – that’s more than one official vehicle for every two employees… which does seem quite high – no?”

    I’m unsure if this also includes the “pre-lease” cars that staff receive during the interim before receiving their official lease car, nor am I sure if it includes the pool, hybrid and electric cars deployed across each of the area offices.

    More money seems to be spent on high staff salaries, inefficient systems, unnecessary vehicles and toys, and excess number of managers/”specialists” than on flood defences!

    “As chairman of the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee, Tim Yeo was instrumental in setting targets for building windmills across the country.”

    Is this a record for the amount of bollocks fitted in a single sentence?

    (1) There are no targets for building windmills across the country
    (2) There are EU targets for renewable energy, but they do not require wind – it could be hydro/solar/tidal etc
    (3) The EU targets were set in 2007 when Tony Blair was Prime Minister, at which point the Energy and Climate Change Committee did not exist. It was formed in 2008.
    (4) The Committee that did shadow the relevant department in 2007 – the Environment Food and Rural Affair Committee – was chaired by Michael Jack MP.
    (5) That Committee did not have any say in what targets the EU decided to set, which as point (1) makes clear, were not wind targets anyway.

    To summarise, Tim Yeo wasn’t the chair of a Committee that didn’t exist, which even if it had existed would have had no influence on the setting a target that was never set.

    BRAVO!
