British Wind Farms Are Over Subsidised And Wasteful Of Public Money

British Wind Farms are "over subsidised and wasteful of public money" - PM David Cameron

Finally, at long last the politicians have woken up and smelt the coffee, Green energy and jobs are just an expensive mirage, the public know and now the politicians realise the public know.

Time for a political damage limitation exercise, Cameron and all the other erstwhile believers in Climate Religion will never admit their gullibility in believing the warming alarmists scary lies about Anthropogenic Global Warming, but as politicians they need an exit strategy from the Church of Climatology.

So expect a 50:50 mix of criticism like Cameron’s words at Prime Ministers Question Time which were later followed by the classic there are “perfectly hard-headed reasons” for still building wind farms, expect the “hard headed reasons” to be mentioned less and less as the politicians slither away from the Green Dream.

Wind farms built across the British countryside have been “over subsidised and wasteful of public money”, David Cameron has said.

In his strongest ever criticism of green energy, the Prime Minister suggested too much taxpayer cash has been given to on-shore wind farms, which are now highly profitable for developers because of generous susbsidies.

“We’re cutting the subsidy to onshore wind because I think it has been over-subsidised and wasteful of public money,” he said during weekly Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons. “The second thing we’re doing is the Localism Act will give local communities a greater say over issues like wind turbines”.

Mr Cameron’s comments came in response to Ian Swales, MP for Redcar, who is objecting to the installation of 120-metre wind turbines within a mile of two villages in his constituency.

“Does the Prime Minister agree that giant turbines should not be built so close to residential areas without local people having a say?” Mr Swales asked.

There is no compensation for those living near a wind farm in Britain, unlike countries such as Denmark. However, there are currently two bills proposed by a backbencher and a peer suggesting a minimum distance between a wind turbine and a dwelling.

Too little, too late Cameron should have shown some leadership months ago and put a stop to Attila the Huhnatic’s one man crusade for a Britain covered in  bird choppers, instead the people who should be congratulated for putting a stop to the Green Dream in Britain are Essex Police and the Crown Prosecution Service.

  1. Kyoto expires this year. Perhaps the European politicians are finally waking up and we will see more “exit strategies” the nearer we get to December 31.

  2. Don’t get your hopes too high – offshore turbines don’t have any irritating neighbours to complain about noise. Only when the Camermong drastically cuts subsidies for them as well can we (possibly) breath a sigh of relief….

  3. The thing to remember too, as has been explored in Oz, is that the money allocated by our government with subsidies of course, goes to foreign companies. Is this the same in England or rather UK?
