At least spare us the green twaddle.
At least spare us the green twaddle. Despite Boris Johnson saying the UK will be the Saudi Arabia of wind power, the Government has abandoned its green homes initiative, removed duty on domestic flights, cut foreign aid by £4bn and is still imposing 20% VAT on domestic heatpumps. But could find £12bn of public money for its rich pals to run the Test and Trace programme which, since the rich pals didn’t know much about it not surprisingly didn’t work. The UK is still spending 32 times as much in subsidies to fossil fuels as to renewables, according to Forbes (October 29th 2020). Oil companies have donated £400,000 to the Tories in the past year (Guardian June 24th 2021). Cop 26? Comedy of the highest order. Sorry kids.
