Owen Paterson: The 'unknown Cabinet minister’ has ...


... a fight on his hands Owen Paterson, a countryman and trenchant Eurosceptic, is uniquely qualified to head the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Congratulations to all those green campaigners who were quick to spot what could turn out to be the most significant of all the new appointments in last week’s ministerial reshuffle. While media attention was largely focused elsewhere, all the usual suspects, from the BBC to The Guardian, were seething with indignation over David Cameron’s surprising choice of Owen Paterson, the “unknown Cabinet ...


Owen Paterson becomes new Environment Secretary


Climate change skeptic Owen Paterson has been promoted to be the new Secretary of State for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Mr Paterson, who is a staunch right-winger, has previously voiced support for for 'fracking' - the extraction of shale gas - and has voiced opposition to wind farms. His appointment alarmed green campaigners. In a recent speech, Mr Paterson praised Britain’s shale gas reserves as “one unexpected and potentially huge windfall.” He praised America and its “can do culture” for taking full advantage of its ...


Paterson urged to work with parties


Northern Ireland Secretary of State Owen Paterson should work closely with Stormont parties, rather than launching criticisms at them from a distance, the DUP has said. After Mr Paterson launched a public consultation on the future shape of the Assembly, DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds said it was unlikely to shed new light on the subject. The North Belfast MP said reforms required agreement between Stormont parties, but said Mr Paterson was failing to build relations with them. Read more: Belfast Telegraph (14 August 2012)

The Knife Angel Statue deserves to be on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square
The Knife Angel Statue deserves to be on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square administrator Tue, 13/12/2016 - 10:53 Thursday, 8 December, 2016 In 2014, the resident artist and sculptor at the British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry, Alfie Bradley, began the Save a Life Surrender Your Knife project. Two years later and the Knife Angel Statue, created as a national monument against violence and aggression, is almost finished. It is a 27ft high sculpture, created with 100,000 knives surrendered and collected in nationwide amnesties in 2015/2016. Police recorded offences involving the use of knives or sharp instruments increased by 9 per cent to 29,306 offences last year. The largest contributor to the total rise was West Midlands Police, accounting for 18 per cent of the increase. We have seen a general downward trend over the longer-term, but these weapons are often used in a number of terrible crimes, including attempted murder, robbery and ass
The idea of holding a second referendum is nonsense
The idea of holding a second referendum is nonsense administrator Tue, 13/12/2016 - 13:25 Friday, 2 December, 2016 http://www.leavemeansleave.eu/owen-paterson-idea-holding-second-referendum-nonsense/ This week has seen yet more threats of legal action from the Remain campaign, five months since British voters made it absolutely clear that they wanted to take back control. 17.4 million people voted to leave the European Union, the largest vote for any issue in British history. Sir John Major was perfectly happy to govern with the 42 per cent he won as leader in 1992 and in 1997 Tony Blair formed a government with 43 per cent. 52 per cent voted to leave the European Union and now that must be delivered. If we do not deliver Brexit it will do catastrophic damage to the integrity of the whole political establishment. There seems to be a determination for Brexit to be resisted, by an ideological refusal to recognise the advantages of leaving the Single Market a

The Ivory Trade
The Ivory Trade administrator Tue, 13/12/2016 - 13:20 Thursday, 8 December, 2016 The Telegraph Online http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/12/08/brexit-could-save-elephants/ David Attenborough’s Plant Earth has once again captured the imagination of the British public. Across the country, people are tuning into the glorious images of dancing flamingos and menacing snakes. Yet while we watch at home in delight, the sad reality is that wildlife across the globe is under threat. There are few species more at risk than the elephant, which faces a battle for survival every day. The elephant population teeters on the brink of disaster, with one killed every 15 minutes. Today, MPs will debate the UK’s ivory trade, with many – from across party lines – calling on the Government to deliver its commitment to banning all ivory sales in the UK. As we build a new foreign and environmental policy outside the European Union, the UK has a chance to take real actio
