Praise for Chris Huhne from The Ecologist

Kicking off a new series in The Ecologist, earlier today the magazine wrote:

Redoubtable Huhne

But actually, from a purely environmental perspective, it’s hard to stay too depressed because (whisper it) there are some signs that this government may really be serious about its green agenda. The simple presence of the redoubtable Chris Huhne at DECC is cheering for a start: this is a serious and intelligent politician who is showing encouraging signs of knowing how to maneuvre and fight to get what his department wants. DECC didn’t do nearly as badly in the cuts as some had expected; he preserved the scheme to build a Carbon Capture and Storage plant, albeit in a smaller form; he has reiterated, over and over again, his support for renewable energy, and he recently set out the Green Deal in a landmark speech to the London School of Economics. Have a read of this speech here.

It gives you a good idea of who you’re dealing with; it is clear and thoughtful, with a real understanding of possibilities.

You can read the full piece here.

    Some of the stuff appearing on this site recently would make Orwell proud.

  • Praise indeed Norfolk Boy; however Mr Blair was one of the best political writers of the 20th cent, and wonderful though the writing is on LDV is, I’m not sure it is quite equals the brilliants of Blair.

    On the subject of George Orwell/Eric Blair, some of the comments on LDV from the Labour trolls are like something out his novel 1984 (which the Labour government thought was an instruction manual). I mean the after 13 years of Labour government, this country has higher levels of inequality than it did after 18 years of Conservative governments, and less houses built. Under Thatcher manufacturing fell from 25.8% of GDP to 22.5%; under Blair it fell from 20.0% to 12.4%, a rate of decline which was almost three times faster.

    War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength
