When the Press turn against a politician the picture paints a thousand words. Piggy in the trough. Why is this guy still in a job? He delayed fracking for eighteen months and is now hiding behind EU requirements for Environmental statements that may well delay fracking for another two years. He is a cancer in the bowels of Government and like all cancers should be cut out urgently. Like all Cancers, those elements around him in the DECC need to be neutralised with the same urgency. He is a Green of the worst order and if UK Energy Policy is to support the populace, we need his removal forthwith. Osborne is flicking around with £75m off the insulation grants, although they actually save energy costs. However the green taxes to Europe and the ROCs payments to wind and the FITs to solar remain untouched. The £75m is transferred to general taxation. Whilst not taken from the poor which is a benefit, does he think we are that stupid to realise that he is just taking it from our other pocket. A thief is a thief whichever way you cut it and to most of us, green taxes are simply THEFT!
