Has Westminster fallen out with Big Wind?

Before we start cheering from the rooftops, we must carefully consider what has been said. Communities will have greater say and Bribes (sorry, Community Benefits) will be five times larger. When we see the subsidies removed I will get excited. Until then I simply see it as giving us back a small part of the money they have filched from our back pockets. Until then there are enough in our communities who just smell the money! Usually notGulliver directly impacted by the turbines and often a little idealistic or consider themselves likely to benefit commercially. The legacy of wind will not be so much the monstrosities but the division of communties. What is a certainty is that such as Eric Pickles and John Hayes plus the hundred plus back benchers would seem to be in the ascendency. The Chancellor of the Exchequer is certainly anti subsidy and Ed Davey’s recent speech was an absolute bomber. If they want to save mega bucks I would suggest an early shower for the DECC. The fact is that Middle England is the conservative power base and Cameron’s courting of the urban elite is actually rather pathetic. Wind farms have impacted to a greater extent than perhaps even Gay Marriage on his core voters and Cameron needs to start supporting his rural base. My simple response is watch this space, read the small print and hope that common sense is finally stalking the corridors of power. AND HOPE FOR A MIRACLE!

Daily Express today “Wind farms may be stopped by Locals”

Delingpole in The Telegraph “Finally the True Tories shaft Ed Davie’s Lunatic Wind Farm Policies”

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.

    Very interesting article and it is high time they come to their senses. Windfarms, somebody was behind the project and made a very good profit. That is the only benefit about windfarms.
