Boris Slams Wind Farm "Disease"
London mayor and presumptive future Tory leader, Boris Johnson, loves nukes and fracked gas but decidedly does not love wind power.
The senior Tory said turning to a new generation of nuclear plants and fracking would cut energy bills and boost the economy.
Writing in The Sun on Sunday he said he was shocked by the number of wind turbines he saw on a recent drive to Scotland.
"It is a good 20 years since I last drove all the way to
Scotland, and in the interim something unbelievable has been done – in
our name – to our green, pleasant and precious countryside," he said.
"I mean the windmills, the turbines – whatever they are
called. I mean the things that look like some hideous Venusian invasion,
marching over the moors and destroying the dales; the colossal seaside
toys plonked erratically across our ancient landscape; the endless
parade of waving white-armed old lunatics, gesticulating feebly at each
other across the fields and the glens. "They seemed to be everywhere, and I asked myself, when were
we consulted? Was there a referendum? Did someone ever warn the British
people that these moaning seagull slicers were going to be erected on
some of the most sensational scenery that God ever called into being?
