Windturbines - epetition reply

Ooh, a letter from 10 Downing Street to AktoMan. Details here.

Summary: "We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to withdraw all subsidies and support to on-shore wind farms in valued landscapes."

Answer: "all proposed wind developments must take place within the formal planning procedure, which allows all relevant stakeholders to have their view and assess all relevant impacts on the environment, local community etc."

The rest is economic waffle that I, frankly, amn't interested in. The industrialisation of the landscape disappoints me. But, what the heck, there are elections coming up soon, as well as the tourist season. And what's the point in getting flustered, when there is sod all we voters can do about it anyway except put a cross in a box against some person/party that serves our own feeble interests best.
