That message isn't very polite to our hard working M.P.

He might be 'hard working' to some but for someone who purports to be 'green' in the 'greenest government ever', he's not doing a very good job at all. Find out more about tar sands below. Cheers

I would hope that progressively messages get ruder and ruder to our MP who is working hard to ruin this country and betray the majority of people who voted for him. Where has he shown a single iota of principle, other than the principle of staying in office? How many people who voted Lib Dem thought they were electing a tory coalition? Check out the tar sands posts above before you start feeling sorry for this appalling specimen. Words like traitor and snake spring to mind...

We got the leaflet through our door on Thursday. Seems rather odd that whoever produced it didn't have the courage to put their contact details on the leaflet, or even a web address where people could give their feedback. It seemed more about a smear campaign on one MP. If, as the leaflet alleges, it is really the fault of Conservatives in government then why not attack them instead?

I think that it is fair to show what NB has said recently on the matter. It seems fair enough to me.
‚??I have made it plain to Lush, and others, that I am seeking to secure the best deal I can for the environment from the discussions ongoing in the EU about the Fuel Quality Directive. In my view, that means tackling all highly polluting crudes, not just tar sands from one particular country.
‚??I simply don‚??t understand why people who care about the environment can ignore all these other sources of dirty oil.
‚??I accept that there may be a genuine debate to be had about tactics, but I find it disappointing, and actually a bit insulting, that Lush ascribes motives and explanations to me that are simply wrong. It seems anyone who disagrees with their analysis must therefore be acting in bad faith.
‚??Firstly, what I am putting forward, if I can make it stick, far from being a wrecking move, will produce a better result for the environment.
‚??Secondly, I am not seeking to delay anything, but want a comprehensive package in place in the EU as soon as possible.
‚??Thirdly, I have not discussed this issue with the Prime Minister or anyone from No 10, they have not raised it with me, and I have not been leant on by anyone in government. However if Lush genuinely (and wrongly) believe that I am ‚??being forced to tow the Tory line‚??, perhaps they should be helping me rather than attacking me, and perhaps instead targeting those who they think are responsible.‚?Ě

Norman is a fine fellow ,a wonderful chap and not at all a lying ,hypocritical planet destroying tory stooge and fantasist. What`s more I find imbecilic middle aged men with receding hairlines poor dress sense and disposable priciples rather attractive don`t you? That should be quite enough to get him re elected ,If not I`m sure some nice oil company will find employment for us somewhere ,so not to worry......................... How`s that Norman? That`s telling em eh!I do so love my job,sigh.

Ignore all the lies and smears Norman. Everyone who matters knows what a brilliant job you are doing.

Yes ignore all the criticism Norman every one who matters (your pet gerbil,George Osborne,your wee Auntie Gladys from Morningside).All know what a brilliant job you are doing in bringing this country to it`s knees.Ignore the critical voices ,yes I know they are deafening, but instead concentrate on the voice tha says, "Norm,Norm, due to an electoral fluke ,the giant seagull of fate has deposited you, Norman Sycophantus Baker on top of the political greasy pole!"You the rather dim uncoordinated Scottish lad that the locals used to hang over a hole to attract maggots when they needed bait to go fishing at the weekend.Listen to to the voice that says, "Norman,Norman think how much an ex gov`t minister with absolutely no principles could earn in the private sector!"Don`t worry Norman by the time every body realises what an incompetent fool you are and boots you out of office you`ll have a ministerial golden parachute and a rather large pension to soften the blow!Ever yours, your constituency Agent.

Norman Baker was campaigning on climate change, long before it was 'right on' when most people had never heard of climate change and those who had denied it existed. Now a private business headed by a millionaire has decided to spend thousands of pounds to try to blacken the reputation of Norman, in a way that would shame the News of the World. Norman has consistently supported environmental issues. He's been an advocate for Transition Town Lewes, for climate activists, he's attended climate camps and called for judiciary reviews. He's been an outstanding MP and is thoroughly decent human being. Lush has an outlet in Riyadh but have singularly failed to criticise the Saudi government for their human rights record and their treatment of women. Perhaps they should put their own house in order before attempting to criticise others.

Norman Baker makes all the right noises and dresses himself up in whatever clothes he thinks wiil get him elected, just like his leader David tuition feesClegg.They are both along with the rest of their party with one or two exceptions(Charlie Kennedy) a bunch of lying scumbags.He deserves everything that`s thrown at him.

All you seem to do Dingo is call Norman names, with all the intellectual brilliance of Jeremy Clarkson. Even when elected an MP, Caroline Lucas was living in Brussels, not Brighton! Did she catch the Eurostar home each Thursday? So I understand why some feel they must smear Baker.
