Wind farms paid record £.9.3m to switch off their turbines on Friday

But when you talk to a renewable advocate, thats not a subsidy. I ask myself what else it is. It’s like paying your local butcher for meat thats not wanted or your baker for the bread he made and nobody wanted. It’s like paying the hairdresser for haircuts performed on imaginary clients. Any entrepreneur knows that – that sometimes something that market does not want is produced. Then you have to take a loss. The age-old wisdom of the market. Except for those getting taxpayer cash. And what happens if you produce stuff that nobody wants and still get money for it. You produce more of it. Thats theft and we are all complicit as long as we vote for politicians that enable this theft.
