Show us your love Chris!

L-R Penny Alford - Eastleigh Oxfam volunteer, Fleicity Gibbens - Oxfam shop manager and Chris Huhne

Last Friday, Chris Huhne, MP for Eastleigh and Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, received a Valentine’s card from his constituents at his offices on Leigh Road. In the card, signed by Eastleigh residents, Mr Huhne was asked to show his love to his global neighbours who are facing the effects of climate change.

At the UN Climate Conference in December, World Leaders agreed to create a global fund to help poor countries adapt to the effects of climate change. Agreement on a global fund was a major step forward in dealing with climate change but to make it work long-term, sources of finance need to be secured internationally.

The Valentine’s card asked Chris Huhne to show his love for the world by using his influence as Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, and asks him how the government proposes to finance the fund.

The giant Valentine’s Day card for Chris Huhne read:

“Dear Mr Chris Huhne MP, I would like you to be my valentine and show your love for the world. At the UN Climate Conference in December, world leaders agreed to create a green fund to help poor communities fight climate change. My message is part of an Oxfam campaign to send Valentines climate change greetings to MPs across the UK.”

Felicity Gibbins, Oxfam Eastleigh Shop Manager said:

“We wanted to use Valentine’s Day to remind the public and our MP, that we are one global community, and our lives are interconnected with others, including those affected by climate change. It is fantastic that a global climate fund is being set up, but it is important to remember that funds need to be earmarked without delay in order for real change to happen.’

    Oh yeah! But who are we talking about here? It’s Chris Huhne! LIBERAL DEMOCRAT! That means we are NOT talking about the Tories! So who has pulled off the publicity best? Answer: Once again it is the LibDems! While conservatism dies on its knees, the LibDems seize their ground, right from under their noses. And why is conservatism dying and why will UKIP do its best to scupper Tory chances right across the UK? Answer: Because treacherous “Conservative” leaders have abandoned the foundation of true conservatism: British nationalism. And THAT is the reason why the combined impact of UKIP and the BNP will split the Tory vote in the next General Election too. The counterfeit Conservative party can NEVER win another General Election so long as it promulgates treason! Yours with sincerity, Pete Stewart, 20 years a Tory activist, 16 years UKIP!
