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…

WATCH: Farage Gets Brillo’d

Andrew Neil gives Farage a bit of a bashing over his knowledge of some of UKIP’s more colourful policies, at least according to their website:

To be fair, who can argue with the traditional train colours stuff…

David “The Jews” Ward’s Annual Holocaust Memorial Day Slur

It’s that time of year again. David Ward, still a LibDem MP thanks to his party’s renowned disciplinary processes, is back comparing the Israel-Palestine conflict to the Holocaust as he marks Holocaust Memorial Day. It’s becoming an annual affair.

Any reasonable person can see this is pretty out of order. Not that his party will do anything about it…

Rennard Victim Says No Legal Action After Apology
LibDem Lord Compares Row to Apartheid

After ten years of cover ups and lies, Ming Campbell told the Daily Politics that now was the time for ‘period of calm reflection’. Meanwhile Lord Greaves went all crackers and compared the situation to Apartheid and the Troubles, suggesting that if Gerry Adams and Ian Paisley could reconcile, so could the two camps in this fight. As the unelected male peers and greybeard former leaders slog it out on the airwaves, one person this story is really about has quietly holed Rennard’s excuse for not apologising beneath the waterline:

So that clears that obstacle. Over to you Chris…

UPDATE: Another Rennard victim, Susan Gaszczak, just told Sky News: “An acknowledgement and an apology is all I want, and this will all go away.”

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
