Tory MPs Tell David Cameron To Cut Green Taxes For WindFarms

Tory MPs are joining forces in a new group pressing for the Government to review funding for a technology they argue does “more harm than good”

The disproportionate influence of the Lib  Dems on the coalition government has been clearly shown in many fudged policy decisions, the worst of which is the whole renewables crusade driven entirely by Chris Huhne and his insane personal desire to have 32,000 on shore bird choppers.

The coalition government is shaky at best, if this were not the case then the disingenuous Huhne would not have lasted so long, Huhne has in fact achieved nothing but promoting his Climate Religion and helped line the pockets of those rich enough to own enough land to have a windfarm cash generater that pays when it generates electricty, and also pays when it does not generate electricty.

British windfarms have been paid millions of pounds to not generate electricity, which Huhne seems to think is reasonable and provides cost effective power, most probably because Greenpeace, WWF and FoE told Huhne that Green subsidised energy is cheap, politically correct and wholly endorsed by the Church of Climatology.

Now, at last MPs are hearing the uproar about the whole Green renewables scam, well at least Tory MPs are, don’t expect any opposition from the Green socialists in the Labour and Lib Dem parties.

DAVID Cameron is under fresh pressure from his own backbenchers to slash subsidies for controversial onshore wind farms. Dozens of Tory MPs are joining forces in a new group pressing for the Government to review funding for a technology they argue does “more harm than good”.

Selby and Ainsty MP Nigel Adams, one of those who attended the group’s first meeting, urged the Prime Minister to act in the House of Commons yesterday by focusing support on “cost-effective and reliable” technologies like biomass rather than “inefficient, costly, large-scale onshore wind farms”.

He told the Yorkshire Post onshore wind farms were “cash cows” and added: “One person’s subsidy is another person’s tax, but if you do have this pot of money to encourage green energy I’d much rather see if be used on proven, reliable, cost-effective technology like biomass.”

The group, led by Daventry MP Chris Heaton-Harris, marks a significant shift in pressure on the Government from its own MPs over onshore wind farms which have often proved controversial, particularly when located near some of Yorkshire’s beauty spots.

“Cast Iron” Dave has two problems facing him now:

Cameron’s hold over his backbench MP’s is tenuous and politically he cannot afford a rebellion, the other is upsetting Little Nicky Clegg and his Lib Dems.

Chris Huhne is not popular in the coalition, not even with his own party, but Huhne is 20% of the Lib Dem presence in the Cabinet and a one time Lib Dem leadership contender.

Assuming Chris Huhne is charged with perverting the course of justice, then he will be removed and ergo the problem is largely neutralised  as the lunatic evangelist for Climate Religion approved energy will be gone, if Huhne is not charged then Cameron will be caught between his backbenchers and the Lib Dems, all the while  chained to a suicidal energy policy.

  1. I would of appear to have lost the original article I wrote on the subject of ” biomass ” but its pretty clear that making wood chips from good quality mature timber to burn like at present is pure environmental vandalism. Not only is it inflating the price of quality timber for use in building projects but its also inflating the price of chipboard, it must be sucking in far more imports from endangered tropical rainforests. That’s the thing about brain dead Westminster politicians, they haven’t got a clue what they are talking about when they talk of an ecologically sustainable economy, just parrot eco-fascist NGO propaganda !

  2. An article in yesterdays Daily Telegraph points to consumers paying £24 million subsidising wind farms that had to be switched off due to inclement weather conditions. We are forced to pay this! MPs from all parties should be standing up and saying enough. Where is the voice of the BBC when we need them? We need an energy supply which produces energy on demand.

    There is an excellent petition which is currently top of the DECC list to reduce the subsidy for wind farms. Petition 22704. Please Google it and vote. Then send it to friends and famliy and force a debate.

  3. A good start, but why stop at wind farms?. Why are the backbenchers not pushing for an end to ALL of the climate change scam?
