Today I am off to the annual conference of NOW (National Opposition to Wind Farms) to meet some of the victims of what I believe is the greatest public health scandal of the 21st century.
The great wind-farm scam is by no means a problem peculiar to Britain. All over the world, families are being driven out of their homes, electricity prices being driven sky high, jobs being killed, eagles being sliced and diced, cherished views being blighted, rent-seeking scuzzballs being rewarded. Some countries have proved better at fighting back against the menace than others. Right now, probably the most vigorous opposition is coming from Australia.
