Tim Yeo reaches for the sky
Our hero said: "This is outrageous from a Prime Minister who has tried to identify himself publicly with what he has called the greatest threat to mankind this century."
There's this, too...
Independent - Blair's greenhouse gas policy 'scandalous': "This is scandalous. Blair is saying publicly that climate change is the greatest threat to mankind this century. But privately he is trying to get the EU to downgrade their targets."
Now, *this* is more like it. When Tim Yeo was shadow minister for health, education and assorted condiments, he obviously felt shackled by the domestic nature of his remit. Now he's (almost) in charge of the environment, he can tackle issues that influence the whole damn planet.
He's using some mighty fine words - and he has the Conservative's excellent track record of environmental concern and action to back them up.
