Mr. Blair's wind-up  

The proposed wind turbines on the mountains of Wales will not reduce reliance on traditional power stations. What they do produce is disproportionate to the environmental impact they have.

A couple touring Devon reported road signs in the hills alerting traffic to wind hazards, yet not a turbine in sight.

Tony Blair, committed as he claimed to be when Prime Minister to the urgent need for wind power, opposed plans to erect four 76-metre wind turbines in his Sedgefield constituency.

But he was perfectly happy for any number of wind turbines of 400 metres to go up in any number of Welsh constituencies.

At the time he was Prime Minister, Mr Blair was asked in Swansea: “Why is Wales being turned into a giant wind factory against the wishes of the people living in areas targeted?”

He replied: “The only thing I can say is that it has to be left to local decision makers.”
