'Yeoville - AFC Energy'.
Didn't realise you were a footie fan, Josh.
Magnificent image, as ever.
Credit where credit due, let us remember that Guido Fawkes did the main lifting with trougher Yeo, going back many years...
OT, but, I thought BH readers may be interested. http://suyts.wordpress.com/2013/06/09/keenan-confirmed-met-position-laid-to-utter-waste/
A fine statistician, Hank, did a comprehensive head to head comparison of AR(1) to Keenan's proposed ARIMA (3,1,0). No question. ARIMA is superior. Just thought you guys might find it of interest.
JTC, good point, I can do Guido his own version ;-)
Josh, as a Guido follower, the Monday morning post is always a cartoon, traditionally done by risible cartoonists whose names temporarily elude me (Mark & ??). Yours would be a wonderful break from that.
Just thought you guys might find it of interest.

EXTREMELY.!! Well worth a plod through.
In my more dismayed moments I'd put the entire Met Office Climate Cadre, NASA Goddard, CRU and the IPCC leadership into that pigsty. In my more positive moments, I just wish they had never existed as the world would be a better place if they hadn't.
The odious Yeo belongs there, but he doesn't deserve to be there all on his ownsome. A far larger sty would be required, but then it would be very hard to pick out the individuals involved in the small scale required to accommodate them. Excellent cartoon!

Brilliant Josh ! Bringing home the bacon.
I met Yeo's son. We bonded over our mutual love for Paul Gascoigne.
A request and idea for Josh.
I can picture Yeo standing snootily as a statue amongst dozens of other preeminent 'Climate Clowns', in a Pantheon type setting with resplendent robes and accompanying slipped laurels.A fitting record for the future, of the false messiahs of doom and leaders of the phenomenon of the Cult of CO2-phobics and 'ambulance chaser' style weather obsessives !
Only been following this casually from afar but this bloke has to be as thick as two short planks.
When I take a bribe I always, as the bribee, check out the corporate credentials of the briber and their foot soldiers whispering in my shell like ear.
You know it makes sense.
Technically, such a revelation is not irony, a mostly incorrectly used word. However, whatever sord fits, it is pretty thick right now. They are all in it for the money.
Tim prove that you are an Honorable man ,give up all your interests in Renewable Energy and tell us you still believe in Global Warming.
Mmm, I can 'smell' the ordure reeking and seeping from the screen, all together a rather apt caricature methinks, nice one J.
And, take a look at Josh's 'Mad Men' cartoon at Watts Up!
Interesting contrast in styles, and reverence! The comments led me to this, which should appeal to others here...
Tallbloke's caption competition
(If you can bear to look at Cook, Mann and Lewandowsky collectively.)
The cry is for Yeo to Go. Unless it's to a long holiday in a solar-heated, wind-powered cell (at his own expense, not the tax-payers') I think it would be a mistake. Just imagine, if he's forced out of office he will be a loose cannon. He won't lose his contacts (who, I'm sure, he "looks after" well - you have to give to get) and he will be able to peddle his influence, albeit slightly diminished from not being in office, with absolute freedom and a total lack of transparency. So, jail him or keep him where he can be monitored.
@David Chappell. I agree absolutely.Yeo has been corrupt for so long and so blatantly that any censure, short of prison, is a misscarriage of justice.
I'm not sure. What's Huhne up to these days? I'm sure it's no good, but how influential?
jamesp - that is exactly the problem, these crooks disappear off the radar and it is extremely difficult to find out what they are up to, but you can bet they are Jack Hornering (stick in his thumb and pull out a plum...).
I suppose I don't mind so much as long as they're not making policy, but I take your point. As Yeo let slip, he can do and say what he likes in private!
Brilliant cartoon, as ever, but the constant pig references do seem a little hard on the species. I have yet to meet one that is anything like as greedy, badly behaved, untruthful or just plain dirty as Mr Yeo.
Has anyone noticed a severe lack of Comments on Tim Yeo articles in the Press?The Telegraph is not even allowing them and the Mail only has 13.
JamesP. You are right, mea culpa. I am actually very fond of pigs - I think they are wonderful. So herewith I sincerely apologise to all members of the Porcine Family. Let's hope they don't mind too much and see the funny side.
No doubt Tim Yeo enjoys the PM's 'complete confidence'...(Usually precedes an undignified exit...)
I think most (real) pigs have a sense of humour.. :-)
