Ok you would have though by his Green speeches that Prince Chuckles would be only too glad to show how green his Duchy estates are.

Ahh but no, the Duchy refused to release any data but its now ruled they are a public body and must release the data.

The information tribunal ordered that the duchy must release information about its activities as they affect the environment.

The prince's lawyers had fought attempts to access files concerning a controversial non-native oyster farm in a special area of conservation by claiming it was a private estate.

The decision means that the duchy, which provides the prince with his income, will be exposed to significant public scrutiny for the first time and its decisions could now be subject to judicial review under environmental information regulations.

Even more a hypocrite than Gore, thats a high bar to have beaten.

Wonder if he will carry on his Green speeches and his support of Jones and his merry crew.

Your term "lunatics" hardly begins to describe it.....

That document was issued by Ofgem today, 3 November 2011.

Brownedoff - very funny!

Please tell me that you made this up as a joke.

Just to confirm that the UK has been converted into an state ruled by lunatics, please read this 6 page document, dated 3 November 2011, generated by Ofgem:

No prior knowledge of the arcane workings of Ofgem is required to understand this insane merry-go-round, the document contains all the information and background needed.

However, it is worthwhile reading to the end just to get a sense of all the hoops that electricity suppliers in the UK have to jump through, even if the will to live is extinguished by the time you reach the end.

Naturally, BG will not suffer as a result of these antics by Ofgem, all the penalties arising will be passed on to their customers, as will the costs of having to participate in this nightmare.

All suppliers of electricity are obliged to waste money and manpower on this annual pantomime and the costs are passed on to the customer.

Remember, this is part of the "saving the planet" project.

I always think its odd how Scottish Labour react to events differently fron the NuLabs down south. So in Scotland Labour were all up in arms about the Pam Am bomber being let free whilst silence down south (no doubt because of some secret deal hey Tony).

Now we have Gray complaing about SNP's renewable energy plan whilst Milipede is going on about CAGW being so important because he does not want to answer to his children in 20 years.

It has been reported on the main Bishop Hill blog Mr Ert. I thought it was interesting as well :)

Today, I read a print version of this article. Thought it might be interesting for some here...
Scientific fraud in the Psychology field is the name of the game, and this unethical chap has been caught red-handed for "“several dozen” published papers, many accepted in respected journals and reported in the news media".
The article goes on to state that Psychologist "Dr. Stapel took advantage of a system that allows researchers to operate in near secrecy and massage data to find what they want to find, without much fear of being challenged."..
...It gets better still:
“The big problem is that the culture is such that researchers spin their work in a way that tells a prettier story than what they really found,” said Jonathan Schooler, a psychologist at the University of California, Santa Barbara. “It’s almost like everyone is on steroids, and to compete you have to take steroids as well.”
And do they make their raw data available? It seems not:
"In a recent survey, two-thirds of Dutch research psychologists said they did not make their raw data available for other researchers to see. “This is in violation of ethical rules established in the field,” Dr. Wicherts said.".
