Wind Farms

Well, that's the end of wind farms, I suppose.

David Cameron has said he'll get rid of them if he returns to power. And I imagine the other party leaders will shortly have the same idea (and claim they had it first). It's a cheap policy and there are votes in it.

I have mixed feelings. On the one hand I think wind turbines are beautiful. On the other you can have too much of a good thing.

But I predict that eventually- once most of them have been swept away- there'll be a change of heart and people will start talking about how much they add to the landscape and campaigns will spring up to " save our turbines" and the few survivors will be lovingly restored and emoted over as symbols of millennial Britain.
