Government surveillance of windfarm protestor

In an eerie echo of the use of anti-terrorist police to investigate Climategate, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change has apparently authorised the use of surveillance to delve into the background of a windfarm protestor.

The victim, George Watson, is going to sue.

Appalling, if true.

A flavour of what was there can be seen at this EPAW page (at time of writing) but the links are dead.

Reality check at 13.46 on Friday 13th (ha..!) January - wind producing 0.4% of demand - equates to 5.6% of available capacity...
Fills you with comfort that these monstrosities figure so prominently in the government's future energy policies, doesn't it..?
Sorry - forgot - from 2020 onwards, by UK law, wind will blow constantly in every corner of the Kigdom at 25mph....
