“The Prime Minister has confidence in the Energy Secretary” says a Downing Street spokeswoman, which effectively means that Huhne is toast if he is charged with perverting the course of justice, cast iron Dave now only has confidence in the Minister for Climate Religion and bird choppers, somewhere along the line “every” has become a political casualty.
Huhne has always maintained that he will hang to his cabinet position if charged, Cameron has now made it clear that he will make the decision not Huhne. Read the rest of this entry
The opposition to wind farms in Britain is growing steadily, from just local groups opposed to the building of bird choppers all way to an all party group of MP’s opposed to wind farms.
At last Westminster has caught up with public opinion that wind farms are heavily subsidised, inefficient, expensive and they destroy landscapes.
In the scramble to meet Chris Huhne’s desire for 32,000
wind turbines Huhne’s Follies all objections to wind farms are trampled flat, even when it is acknowledged the wind farms kill protected birds and destroy sights of natural beauty, or historical significance. Read the rest of this entry
The end of Chris Huhne saga is drawing closer as what is widely regarded as the last obstacle to charging Huhne is gone.
Just before Christmas 2011 Essex Police made it clear that they want Huhne and his estranged wife Vicky Price charged with perverting the course of justice and lesser speeding charges. Read the rest of this entry
Flashback: 1982 a corrupt Argentine Government led by General Galtieri is in dire financial trouble and deeply unpopular at home, in a desperate effort to divert attention from his problems at home Galtieri reiterated Argentina’s old and completely baseless 19th claim to the Falkland Islands. As history shows Galtieri made the biggest mistake of his career when he decided to invade the Falkland Islands; despite some limited success the largely conscripted Argentinian invaders were decisively beaten by the British Forces in a 74 day war which ended on June 14th 1982.
The Falkland Islanders wish to remain British, their experience of life under Argentinian occupation can best be summed up by, on June 14 every year the islanders celebrate Liberation Day.
FastForward: 2012 a corrupt Argentine Government led by Cristina Kirchner in dire financial trouble and seeking to divert attention from the problems at home is making the same erroneous claims as Galtieiri for the Falklands. Cristina Kirchner who assumed power after the death of her husband Nestor in 2010 is politically toxic, a close ally of Hugo Chavez, even Barry Obama cancelled a visit to Buenos Aires scheduled for April 2011.
The solar industry is in global decline and nowhere more so than Germany where in the closing days of 2011 Solon, who were Germany’s first photovoltaic producer have filed for insolvency with debts of 275 million euros.
BP has pulled out of solar, in the US Solyndra went bankrupt and there are 11 further renewables companies in the US, all going the same was as Solyndra, down the tubes.
Please note some people could find this video clip upsetting, the suffering of the vulture is all too plain to see.
Wind farms kill birds, there is no argument about this fact, the argument is about the numbers killed and how it is acceptable for Green hypocrites to sanction the killing of birds of birds of prey by the renewables industry, while at the same time screaming for the maximum penalties for anyone or organisation that kills a bird of prey.
The estimates for bird deaths submitted when a wind farm is approved are around 12% of the actual deaths caused by the bird choppers, the shocking news from Spain that between 6 to 18 million birds are killed annually illustrates the point, sadly. Read the rest of this entry
One of the major problems facing industry and households in Britain today is the price of energy, there is a solution to the current very high cost of gas and electricity, shale gas.
As usual the Green ecomentalists led by Chris Huhne, the minister for Climate Religion and Green subsidies have spread fear stories about fracking, quoted a junk science documentary, Gasland, as the definitive source on the Green perils of fracking.
The resistance to fracking is wholly ideological, nothing else, as cheap gas makes the already economically unviable wind and solar industries who are subsidised to the hilt by Green taxation, subsidy, Feedin Tariff or whatever you want to call it, even more unaffordable.

Wind farms are not only a killer for reliable affordable energy, jobs and economic prosperity, they are also a killer for birds and bats.
The Golden Eagle is under threat from bird choppers in Oregon where licences allow the killing of protected bird species, as long as it is by approved Green industry. In Norway bird choppers are also killing Golden Eagles, while in Britain the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) sanctioned the killing of birds: “Any threat has to be weighed against the national imperative to develop green energy sources“.
