Duke of Edinburgh describes wind energy as a fairy tale and useless! I never thought I would be in agreement with him but on this one he is for once spot on!
I had thought this was turning into a strange week when Clegg spoke out against the US UK extradition treaty. But I dismissed that as his being desperate to try and find something (anything!) sensible to say on any topic whatsoever, plus a realisation that it was simply his anti-americanism streak showing because if he really meant it he would have lambasted the even more grossly misused EU extradition treaty as well.
There have been a number of sensible comments filtering into the news this week on the EU and energy fronts, which has to be a slight cause for limited optimism that a few people are thinking in a more sensible direction.
