I’ve yet to read all the details.
Is he on his way to EU Commissioner?
No. The backbenches.
Who’s taking over from him?
Liz Truss – new Environment Secretary. This despicable woman was the one who endorsed that children as young as TEN years should be taught about the dangers of porn in schools.
“The minister who thinks that lessons in porn are acceptable: MP says schools are free to teach children despite impact of images on youngsters”.
The Daily Telegraph also wrote of this.
Tim Montgomerie on Conservative home writes:
We certainly won’t get a minister who was so pro-fracking
Indeed no one’s done more to advance the cause of bee-killing, GMOs and fracking than this sold out individual.
Now he’s running for cover, and no doubt to collect.
Will he stand for re-election next May in Shropshire North? Or will he take the easy route out to collect his reward from Monsanto or BP?
Watch this space.
Thanks to his pro-fracking policy, we are embroiled in trying to stop a frack right on our doorstep, across one small field from where we live and work. Strangely Owen Paterson’s home is just a mile further away. My guess is he’ll be getting a few less Christmas cards this year and into the future. He’s really sold his constituents down the river.
The tent people who are planning to occupy the field, if planning permission is granted, might well decide to pay him a social call. You might say he’s dug his own grave, but that would be to overstate the threat. He at least won’t want to show his face round the local villages, at least while everyone is stressed out with the threat of fracking, and no one can sell their house. Longer term many could be made ill, and worse. What a totally useful bloody idiot he has proved to be. I am sure he’ll collect somehow, unless a miracle occurs, he changes tack and fights the programme from the back benches!!!
A blinding flash of light and a trip to Damascus are called for.
NPP – UK Column
Informative, and becoming noticeably funny. Gerish and Robinson, superb. They apologized for the sound of workman next door. They weren’t sure if it might be MI5 putting in new cable.
Plus Ian R Crane as passionate, verging on controlled fury, as I’ve seen him.
UK Column possibly doing what TPV were trying to do. Simple, focused, to the point, information is the star and bloody dead pan funny.
A spot of humour does ease the gloom.
