Tim Yeo: Conniving to the End

Yeo fibbed his way through an interview with Channel 4 News last night, telling viewers with a straight face that he was booted out because of his views on gay marriage. Anyone who has ever been to Suffolk knows that is his most laughable spin yet – you can’t throw a quiche in Aldeburgh without hitting four interior designers. They kicked him out because he was a useless, arrogant toad.

Cameron, Osborne, Gove, May, Poulter, Ruffley, Coffeyyour boy took one hell of a beating.

        The extent of corruption in Europe is “breathtaking” and it costs the EU economy at least 120bn euros (£99bn) annually, the European Commission says.

        EU Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem has presented a full report on the problem.

        She said the true cost of corruption was “probably much higher” than 120bn.

        Yes love, a lot higher.

      Well, for how long has Tiny Tim been the member for that specific constituency, over 30 years was it, hmmmm it seems very much like an outing to me. Unless Tiny Tim has altered in some way, he is no different from when he became an MP in 1983, at the height of Maggies power, according to wikipedia he went to a good private school Charterhouse, then to Cambridge, “he read History and graduated in 1968. At university he “did no work, got a poor degree and adored it”he read History and graduated in 1968.” (maybe that gives an indication of his attitude, has the ability but will frame himself to do well). It still seems strange after just of 31 years it has taken the local committee to out him, I wonder if Boris wants this wants constituency, or has CCHQ some other favoured one in mind.

    Local Audit and Accountability Act

    Now everyone and his dog can interfere. Why could MPs not leave it alone and keep to the localism and observability set out by Thatcher in 1960.

    In local politics small businesses have to plead for permissions to local councillors. Why do all local business people now have to be film stars. Why do they have to suffer ridicule from internet publications just to attend and put forward their views. There are many capable council workers that have severe disabilities that have to attend and speak at these meetings. Are you setting them also up for ridicule?

    Or are you just trying to make sure all decisions are discussed behind closed doors and the meetings are just rubber stamping sessions for the minimal of attendance?

    The major threats to peace at present are as follows:

    i) The ECB and Euro: The actions of this central bank and the dubious nature of the Euro currency are the most likely trigger for real conflict.

    ii) G’ermany: Actions of the B’undesbank (repatriating Gold), D’eutsche bank et al. – basically being corrupt / insolvent institutions funding international terrorism and drug trade / corrupting foreign governments, and finally G’ermany’s imposition of real trade tariffs via the EU.

    iii) The EU : Especially its destabilisation of U’kraine and to a degree Syr!a / T’urkey.

    UKIP is fairly neutral on peace, but is perhaps helping to avert the possibility of major civil unrest in the UK, hence could be considered a net benefit for maintaining peace.

    Vote UKIP.

      I would totally agree but would also add that:

      iv) The sheer size of German industry in a single currency zone makes it inevitable that German companies will devour their weaker European competition and move production to the cheapest location within Europe, or wherever it is politically expedient to do so.

      v) Since there is a tendency for profits to be creamed off and directed to HQ there will be an increasing tendency for profits to end up in Germany because that is where the HQs of the EU’s biggest companies are. We already see this elsewhere in the former “single currency zones” within nations – London richer than the rest of the UK, Milan richer than the rest of Italy, Bavaria richer than the rest of Germany. In a single currency zone all the real wealth will end up in Bavaria. Unlike individual nations, however, the EU has no mechanism for re-distributing the wealth back out to the regions.

        AfD are opposed to the Euro not the EU.

        They have correctly identified the Euro as being an existential threat to the G’erman economy.

        Eurozone is good for G’erman exports as they are the main producer. However, they do protect their markets quite closely. This has been through ECB monetary policy of late: Most of the cash made available at low interest rates to other countries in Europe has been spent one way or another on G’erman manufactured goods…

Many cite as the main reason for their resignations and abandinment of the Tory party as down to “Gay Marriage”. Cameron has paid and will pay a heavy price for his support of this legislation and is unlikely to win the necessary number of seats(even long standing ones with large majorities like Yeo’s)

      What is fracking?

      Fracking is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside. Water, sand and chemicals are injected into the rock at high pressure which allows the gas to flow out to the head of the well.

      The process is carried out vertically or, more commonly, by drilling horizontally to the rock layer. The process can create new pathways to release gas or can be used to extend existing channels.

    Keep Calm, Vote UKIP says:

    The idea behind the Treaty of Rome, the EEC and the EU was for that situation not to happen.

    World War II was in large part caused by too much concentration of economic power in G’ermany.

    The widening economic differential between G’ermany and F’rance – the two countries on which peace in Europe really hinges, is the single biggest factor that will contribute to breakdown of peace.

    In particular – if the split on steel production that was set up after World War II becomes de-facto broken as a result of F’rench industrial output declining relative to a continuing strong G’erman output, then there are no barriers to stop G’ermany re-arming – except for energy supply.

    The EU dr!ve to get T’urkey and U’kraine to join is connected with that.

    U’kraine will weaken Russ!a’s direct control on hydrocarbon supply to G’ermany.

    T’urkey re-opens !ran and the middle east hydrocarbon supply period.

    Syr!a / L’ebanon / C’yprus are back in the frame thanks to the newly discovered reserves in the East Med.

    Be under no illusion that G’erman foreign policy has changed much since the NSDAP days: It has not.
