Tim Yeo’s Greatest Hits

From leadership contender to loser in nine years, Tim Yeo bites the dust. Guido has been exposing his absenteeism and conflicts of interest for the best part of a decade. As far back as 2007 Guido reported his hypocrisy in lobbying for an end to unnecessary air travel as he flew around the world on golfing jollies. In 2010 Guido accused Yeo of using House of Commons banqueting facilities to wine and dine a group of environmental investors, while at the same time raising money for AFC Energy, a company of which he is the chairman. Yeo’s denial to Guido on Newsnight that it was “absolutely outrageous” is particularly amusing today.

Later that year Yeo put his name forward for the chairmanship of the Energy and Climate Change select committee. Guido warned at the time, “MPs look set to elect a man completely tied up with an industry that he would be responsible for the checks and balances on”. They didn’t listen.

By 2012, Yeo’s conflicts of interests were adding up. He was now earning over £100,000-a-year from his green investments as he lobbied the government to stop green cuts. Then there was Yeo’s dodgy taxi firm dealings – he resigned from the company when Guido started sniffing round – and his call for extra flights to China just as one of his companies signed a huge deal in the country.

2013 saw Yeo stung by the Sunday Times, offering to become a paid advocate for a fake firm for £7,000-a-day. The cops took an interest but Yeo survived. Though not for long…

Read all Guido’s stories on Tim Yeo, dating back to 2005, here.

    Looking forward to deselecting Cameron next and replacing him with a real Conservative. Cameron can then join the Libs where he really belongs.

    Remember, we are in this mess still because our Honest Dave couldn’t get a HofC majority at the last election when Brown was in power and considered the worst PM of all times and really detested by every one. His bad judgement to go into the the election debates was part of his downfall, and then he allowed Labour to claw back seats so that the Tories would end up without a majority.

    He really has no chance of power in 2015 considering he couldn’t win in 2010, and he didn’t!

    His love of all things European Union will add to his demise. The 2017 alleged EU referendum will never happen, and even if it did and even if the vote went against the EU, and these are all very big ‘IF’s’ Parliament or the Government is not bound by the result. Remember France and the Netherlands voted ‘Non’ but it was just conveniently ignored by the political elite, so what makes you think any thing different would happen here.

    This country is going to be part of a Federal United States of Europe, whether the people like it or not. It will happen, come hell or high water, even with our Honest Dave at the helm. It’s what the United States want too and part of a long standing deal that concluded the end of the second world war.

    Guido is reporting that Tim Yeo has been deselected.

    The South Suffolk Conservative Association have voted not to re-adopt Tim Yeo MP as their candidate for the next General Election. Selection for the South Suffolk constituency will be opened in due course.

    My guess is that Cameron will elevate him to the House of Lords.

    A single mother with eight children who receives £2,000 a month in benefits has had a string of bus lane fines slashed because she claims she can’t afford to pay them.
    Marie Buchan, 31 racked up 10 tickets in just one week after straying into the bus lane when her youngest daughter Olivia, then aged two months, was admitted to hospital with bronchitis.
    Ms Buchan, whose children are aged between four months and 12 years old, receives £500 a month in state handouts and said the £600 of fines left her facing financial ruin.

    stvwh says:

    The recent deselections of Conservative candidates, including today Tim Yeo, have demonstrated the misunderstanding and isolation between the central Conservative elite and the local party membership.

    Cameron, Gove, and Osborne, very publicly gave their support to Yeo, putting them at loggerheads with the the local association during the period of the vote. They have thus not shown any consideration towards an association which put and kept Tim Yeo in power for thirty years, even loyally supporting him through some very embarrassing revelations about extra-marital affairs. Such is the state of the automatic assumption of rights that the Conservative elite hold, I doubt that there will be any contrition shown by Cameron. He completely and unnecessarily ramped up the stakes by stepping into an affair where he was clearly not wanted.

    We are left with the question of who is to be the next South Suffolk Conservative candidate? Will they be allowed to choose their own appropriate candidate, or have to take a parachuted-in PR-approved slick-haired candidate from Cameron’s A-list, or even Boris Johnson, who is looking for somewhere to hang his hat?

    Congratulations though, to the local Conservative association for taking this very bold action.against Tim Yeo. Don’t let Cameron’s metropolitan pals’ assumed hegemony over such local constituencies overrule your wishes.

    Why are Labour and the Labour run Unions so keen to keep education in the UK at a sub standard level ?

    Recall that if UKIP get power, one of their pledges is to get the advocacy groups – read propaganda NGO’s – out of schools pronto so some actual teaching can take place.

    It would be good if Gove could soften the Unions up a bit first, and even better if teachers could remind themselves why they went into the profession.

    If they are not there to teach, they should just fuck off.

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    State education is not about teaching.

    It is a tax funded child care facility allowing parents time to work, and for the state to indoctrinate the younger generation as it sees fit.

    There are two important issues right there: Control of how people form their ideas and perceptions, and a redistribution of tax income back to the lower and middle classes.

    The teaching staff are essentially state controlled drones who are dependent on the state as employer. The Unions fill the void as they do any other mass public sector space as ever: They are usually politicized and are part of the mechanism used to keep the teachers in line.

    When the real nature of state education systems are understood it all becomes much simpler, and the role of the Unions in ensuring that teachers stick to the state provided script which is used to program the minds of the students a certain way, then the Unions role in ‘educating’ children becomes clear.

    He’s told the BBC that he’s been dumped because he voted for homosexual marriage.

    No mention that he’s a thieving crook using his position to get back handers from eco firms, eco lobbyists and anyone else who will bribe him.

    The BBC will of course believe him. They like anti homosexual marriage stories.

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    The objective is not to secure a particular political outcome.

    As many on this site point out, LibLabCon is really different sides of the same thing. There is no real choice there, but people are allowed to feel that they can vote for an independent party they feel more comfortable with.

    The objective is to impart enough skills en masse to create a workforce which on aggregate has the skills needed to solve national level problems (eg. Infrastructure) and supply industry with human capital for its needs (factory workers).

    Nowadays there is much more focus on political ideology as the industrial demands on the population are much reduced, in part due to the de-indutrialization that has taken place over the past thirty years.

    It does work, or rather did work, but has been greatly undermined mainly since the internet has come on the scene.

    The previous propaganda / control model requires limited sources of very well controlled information with unquestionable authority.

    The net has undermined and clouded this authority model for many people (how many take I’cke as gospel, yet disparage the BBC – sometimes incorrectly…), and the barriers for access to information have been broken.

    All that remains holding the old system together are economic barriers and social class.

    Economic barriers prevent individuals in large part from realizing their dreams / ambitions, or utilizing new found knowledge by pricing productive means out of their reach.

    Class barriers predispose behaviour between people and generally have a negative effect on the aspirations of those deemed (and who deem themselves) to be of a lower class.

    The biggest failure and greatest harm that the state education inflicts on people is that it does not impart the tools for independent learning, and instills a sense of dependency in people which prevents them from being self sufficient and independently productive.

    The net hasn’t fixed this latter problem just yet, but this shift is occurring and that is the single biggest threat to those who would seek to control a previously subservient population.

    The state education system was (and still is) very effective at maintaining that low grade status quo.

    Cameron has not won an election yet and he won’t either in 2015. It’s a fore gone conclusion.

    If Miliband enters no 10 next year, it will be as a result of Camerons’ liberal policies and his support for a federal united states of europe.

    No doubt the usual brown nose suspects will appear to support him.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
