Escape and evasion

Readers may recall this post on 25th January concerning the report from the Parliamentary Science and Technology Committee inquiry of the reviews into the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit’s (CRU) e-mails (Climategate).

It was noted that one of the Committee members, Graham Stringer MP, had proposed an amendment to the report that was rejected by the other three members, excluding the Committee Chairman, who could be bothered to show up.

One of those three members, Stephen Metcalfe MP (pictured), was contacted by a member of the public to find out more.  The story has been posted as a comment on Climate Audit in the screenshot below, and mentioned in a comment thread on the Bishop Hill blog (click to enlarge):

It seems some ‘Honourable’ members from the 2010 intake have been receiving training in escape and evasion techniques that the lads at Credenhill would be proud of.

Public interest 0-1 Vested interest.  Another poor showing for public interest, which remains languishing at the bottom of the UK Establishment League and faces relegation to the Politico Ignore List League.

    The Tory candidates who make up the new intake were highly reliant on being ‘on message’ with Cameron.
    Thus – they will sadly also push AGW/Hoo-Sticks etc.
    So no surprise that this one toed the Cameron line.
    Still – a great shame.

    I thought Stringer was ‘Labour’?

    Yes Dan, Stringer is Labour.

    The Science & Technology Chair, Andrew Miller (Labour) started work as a laboratory technician at the Geology Department of Portsmouth Poly.

    By House of Commons standards, that makes him almost a scientist of the first rank.

    No wonder he tells the other dimwits how to splash on the whitewash.

    Sir Brandon Gough, Chancellor of the University of East Anglia, is accused of being complicit in academic fraud and corrupt abuse of public funds in relation to Climategate.
