Britain Jolly Rogered!
The inimitable James Delingpole delivers a scathing indictment of Huhne and the UK's Energy Policy which will eventually turn Britain into a Third World country.
In Cameron’s cosy circle of spoiled toffs it of course matters not one jot whether your electricity bill is £250 or £2500 or, frankly, £25,000. It doesn’t matter if your view is ruined by a field of ruddy great wind turbines (not if say your father in law is Sir Reginald Sheffield who stands to make large sums of money from “farming” that intermittent wind). It doesn’t even seem to matter what happens to all those businesses, small ones especially, which are going to be crippled by these artificially-induced energy price increases: not when in Cameron’s circles the only people who really matter are either in-the-loop corporate fat cats whose larger companies can more easily wear the extra costs or City bankers heavily exposed to “green energy” interests.
To the rest of us, though, these things are going to start mattering more and more.
