US Assistant Secretary of State: “F**k the EU”

According to Kyiv Post, this is a leaked recording of US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt and US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland discussing a plan for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to help sort out the situation in the country:

Assistant Secretary of State Nuland: “That would be great I think to help glue this thing and have the UN help glue it and, you know, f**k the EU.”

Ambassador Pyatt: “Exactly.”

Always good to hear our transatlantic allies share our values…

WATCH: Bercow Flips Out

Something seemed to be troubling the Speaker at PMQs today. He boiled over during one exchange, completely losing it with Michael Gove. And to think the Education Secretary’s better half Sarah Vine was so nice about Sally in the Mail this morning…

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.

Guru Joshing: Arnie Graf Hits PMQs

Dave resisted temptation to stick the boot into Arnie Graf at PMQs today, though Alec Shelbrooke’s question was amusing nonetheless. Labour are trying to kick back at the story with references to Lynton Crosby’s status. Awkwardly that line doesn’t hold much water, Crosby is one guru who definitely does have a visa

Thanks as ever to @liarpoliticians for the footage.

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…

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
