Green energy Tory gets the arse card

De-selection is a brilliant idea…perhaps we could look it here for useless MPs. Labour could use it to e=rinse Trevor Mallard and National to get rid of Lindsay Tisch, Colin King, plus a few others.

In the UK they are giving a green Tory the arse card.

Tim Yeo, the Conservative MP and chairman of the influential Commons Energy Committee, has been dropped as a candidate at the next election

His local constituency voted at a meeting on Friday night not to re-select Mr Yeo as its candidate in the 2015 general election.

Mr Yeo, 68, who has represented South Suffolk as its MP for 30 years, is said to be ?considering his options?. He has the right to appeal the decision or put himself forward as a candidate when the selection process for a new MP gets underway.?

In a statement issued to the local newspaper, the constituency party said: The executive council of the South Suffolk Conservative Association met on the evening of Friday, November 29 and voted not to re-adopt Tim Yeo for the 2015 general election.

?Mr Yeo is now considering his position and will advise the executive council of his intended course of action.?

Mr Yeo, a former environment minister in John Major?s government, is an enthusiastic supporter of renewable energy including wind turbines, which are deeply unpopular among many grassroots Conservatives.

Good job…and good riddance.
