Patrick Hennessey, erstwhile 'Political Editor' of the Daily and Sunday Telegraph, reports that David Cameron has been hit by a major protest by Conservative MPs over the Government’s backing for wind farms.
That current planning laws are 'rigged' in favour of the state is not addressed by Hennessey; that Huhne, rather than face a charge of treason, has settled to face the lesser charge of perverting the course of justice is not addressed - but I digress; that the building of wind turbines is the result of compliance with EU requirements is not addressed; that these 101 MPs will have as much effect as those calling for the repatriation of powers is not addressed; that Chris Heaton-Harris is no more a eurosceptic than Cameron is a Conservative is not addressed; that the Conservatives who are ministers and parliamentary private secretaries are unable to sign because they are part of the government “payroll” and as a result are unable to represent their constituents concerns (another deficit of our democratic system of representative democracy) is not addressed; that Tracy Crouch can punt a football further than she will be able to punt opposition to this is not addressed.
And this article is journalism? And Hennessey is a journalist?
Sheesh! Is it any wonder the public are 'ignorant' of matters important when they are reliant upon 'informers' such as Hennessey?
Update: The text of the letter to which the article refers can be read here. Heaton-Harris' amendments aren't worth the proverbial crock of!
