No sooner has DECC appointed Lord Deben to head the Climate Change COmmittee than one of its ministers finds himself in a spot of who-is-he-working-for-anyway bother.
Minister Greg Barker has been holding meetings with an eco-company called Air Products. Unfortunately it turns out that Air Products is a client of one of his DECC advisers.
Oh dear. DECC seems to be staffed by the corrupt and advised by the dishonest, doesn't it? It really is time for a clean sweep of both ministers and officials.
The noise on Twitter is that Air Products is closely linked to AFC Energy, which is chaired by Tim Yeo. It seems the two companies are working on a project together.
