Christopher Booker again turns his attention to the expensive white elephant that is wind power in a short Telegraph column. He opens his piece thus:
Talking on the BBC last week about wind turbines, which are at the centre of our Government’s energy policy, the Transport Secretary, Philip Hammond, said “onshore wind doesn’t need subsidy any more, onshore wind can pay its way”. This was so laughably untrue that one has to wonder whether Mr Hammond was being deliberately untruthful or whether, which is almost worse, he is so ignorant that he actually believed what he said.
It is well worth a few moments of your time. You can read the whole piece here.
