DEFRA Funded Carbon Trust Says :Miliband’s Eco-Tax Plans Crap

David Miliband really is a cheeky sod. Last week we learned that the environment secretary doesn’t recycle his own rubbish, and has managed to piss off practically every farmer in the country by losing their lovely subsidy cheques down the back of the DEFRA sofa.

Now it turns out that he has:-

  • managed to cost NHS hospitals a fortune by making them buy carbon emissions permits
  • handed big oil companies a small fortune on a plate by giving them bucketloads of said permits
  • when challenged about it the Government simply lied to parliament* to cover it up.

Back in the summer Miliband penned a breathless piece claiming that “David Cameron’s hostility to Europe makes a mockery of his claimed green credentials”. Today the Government’s very own £105 million-a-year Carbon Trust Quango says that Milliband’s beloved EU Emissions Tax is a total fiasco.

Looks like all the time he spends writing his riveting blog has caused him to take his eye off the ball a bit…

*The Govemeister picked up on the fib.

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
