In case either of my readers (hi, Mum) were wondering the lack of posts this week isn’t a sign of anything more than that I’ve been a bit busy. I certainly haven’t suddenly started believing that all is right with the world after all because clearly it isn’t. I just haven’t had the time to seethe about it at length in the blogosphere and have had to settle for occasional quiet seethe-lets in the car instead.
And I can’t offer much this evening either for the same reason, but I just wanted to point out this from The Daily Mash the other day:
Chairman Lord Turner said: “The only problem we can possibly foresee is if it’s not as windy as we think it’s going to be.
The report was welcomed by the large energy providers who said that if they were going to pick a figure of out of thin air for how much more they felt like charging people then they would probably have chosen £110 as well.
Lord Turner added: “It’s not that green technology is, in itself, massively expensive, it’s that if it doesn’t actually work then you have to get the energy from somewhere else. Usually from people who aren’t very nice.
“So you end up with an expensive thing that doesn’t work all the time plus expensive energy from horrid people. And that is massively expensive.
“But it’s fine, because it’s going to be windy.”
Yes, and just the other week we saw that they’re just as good when it’s a bit too windy, didn’t we?
