Do not decisions depend on whether the pryce is right?

Should not Huhne be hewn along with his damn turbines? In his article today in the Daily Telegraph he makes a statement that is one of disbelief:
"But a golden age of cheap energy looks increasingly unlikely – and wind turbines are certainly here to stay."
The fact that wind energy is not cheap is solely the fault of politicians both past and present; and one does have to inform Master Huhne that the length of time wind turbines may remain in use is on a par with the length of time that he may remain in office. When the public finally wake up to the fact that they are being taken for a ride, likewise the police, Huhne and his beloved turbines may well both be blown away.

He also states in his article:
"This year, for the first time ever, we imported more gas – whether piped from Norway or shipped from Qatar – than we pumped from our own continental shelf. We are keen that the market continues to invest in the capacity, storage and infrastructure to support our import needs, and are working with Ofgem to sharpen the incentives to ensure that suppliers can meet demand."
Earlier, discussing shale gas, Huhne made great use of the word 'could' thus implying that the stocks of shale gas may not be as great as prophesied and casting doubt on whether those stocks could be recovered. Surely it must be obvious to Huhne that discovering whether those stocks exist and are recoverable are preferable to the continuance of importing the same energy source and spending yet more money on an energy system which has been shown not to be energy efficient?

On both questions, namely the continuance of wind turbines and Huhne's political carrer, one can but repeat the heading to this post.

Just saying.........

It's becoming obvious that Huhne is one of the politicians we seriously have to get rid of, FOR GOOD!

Made my feelings about Huhne long ago, I read the Telegraph article with a morbid fascination, wondering, just what is he up to here?
I still cannot fathom it, if he's seeking to convince himself, DT readers or 'neutrals', on all counts I think he fails execrably.

I can't help but think to myself, his poor ex [and long suffering of the insufferable] wife is far, far, far better off now he's shacked up with that other bint.
