Tim Yeo reaches for the sky

Conservatives.com - Tony Blair ditches climate change targets: Tim Yeo, Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment, today expressed his disappointment to the growing anger expressed in response to the revelations that the Prime Minister has been trying to weaken the progressive European position on climate change targets.

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.

*cough*

    Since you support the 'backing blair' website, you must want people to vote for Yeo, since Labour are second in South Suffolk and you wouldnt at any cost want Labour to win the seat.

    This is called irony - I'm only mentioning it because since you link to backingblair you are obviously a really clever person who understands irony and how big brother politicians are lying to us about the dangers of so called terrorism, and such highbrow matters.

    You clever people are so clever.

    I'm just curious, do any of you people live in South Suffolk?

    And why haven't you posted lately?
