Lambeth Council preparing for winter:-

"Snow wardens needed"

"We will give our snow wardens all the training and tools they will need, including;

a shovel
hi-visibility jacket
gloves
grit bin
a supply of grit.

We will provide community groups with additional equipment which can be shared amongst members.

Training sessions will be held during the weeks beginning 10 October and 24 October 2011..."

Read it all

When the penny finally drops that the peasants will not buy these useless objects, Huhne will start dishing them out to "key friends of government" at 2 vehicles per key friend (but at no cost to the friend).

One car will be left at home on charge (reimbursed by taxpayer) and one will be driven to the government office car park, then plugged into a government power socket (i.e. taxpayer foots the bill).

In this way, when the key friend gets home after a hard day watching his car being charged up, his other car will be fully charged ready to pop down to the shops.

His "work" car will then get plugged in overnight at the house to be ready to go to "work" again.

It will matter not one jot that the neighbours of the key friend, within a radius of 500m, will have their smart meter electricity disconnected from the system until the software detects that the friend's car is fully charged.

I am sure that there are thousands of this sort of friend in government circles, so only 850,000 of these key friends will be needed to do the trick:

The UK will need to put 1.7 million electric vehicles (EVs) on the road by 2020 and then treble take-up of the technology in the following decade if it is to meet its climate change targets.

Trebles all round.

Funnily enough the switch to Electric cars is worrying the Energy supplier - I wonder why?

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/10/13/electric_car_charging/

"While everyone wants to be a bit greener, one thing the utility companies are thinking about, and worrying about, is the problems that will arise on the power grid when everyone gets home at 6pm and starts charging their car. Already a peak time for energy usage, a wide adoption of battery-operated cars would push grids to the limit, and possibly over it, every teatime."

Guido breaks the news- Roger Helmer MEP resigns...

...'But it would be disingenuous to deny that my decision is dictated in part by my increasing disillusion with the attitudes of the Conservative Party. I am finding it ever more difficult to defend the policies of the Coalition, not only on my key issues of Europe, and of climate and energy, but on a range of other matters besides.

I will have more to say about this in coming days…'
