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:
