Christopher Booker told your readers that the wind turbine at Kings Langley, Hertfordshire, only works at 8 per cent efficiency (News, December 17). Imagine my amusement, and horror, when I drove past it last night to see it not rotating (not unusual) but now floodlit, presumably to draw attention to the folly. Given the electricity used to light it up, is it now working at minus 8 per cent efficiency?
