Hot from the printer (or is it “burner”?), I have my new DVD, with a lot of lively stuff on Europe, on climate, and on a range of other issues. Copies are being sent to constituencies across the East Midlands: ask your constituency office for a (free) copy, or e-mail me (with your street address for mailing) requesting a copy (available while stocks last).
It opens with a five-minute bio-piece put together by the ECR group, including footage from Brussels and (believe it or not) Windsor. Then there’s my rather lively speech at the European parliament offices in Smith Square, London (formerly Conservative Central Office), including a cameo appearance from Rupert Matthews, at the launch of my recent book “Sceptic at Large”.
We have a pre-Cancun climate debate in Brux against Environment Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, with some very robust exchanges, and another chaired by Andrew Neil against some highly forgettable Lib-Dem MP on the proposal to increase our CO2 emissions target from 20% reduction to 30%.
There’s a BBC interview for the East Midlands Politics Show on the Bombardier rolling stock order (partly filmed in my back-yard), and another with Russian Television (honest) filmed entirely in a studio. Plus a number of interventions I’ve made from time to time in committee and in plenary. If you prefer soap operas and TV dramas, you’ll probably be bored to tears. If on the other hand you’re concerned about the independence of our country and the viability of our energy supplies, it may be of interest.
