Welsh First Minister Condemns Steel Workers

Steel giant Tata is closing down part of its Welsh Newport plant and laying off hundreds of workers because it cannot afford to keep paying high electricity costs. Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones seems quite cut up over the closure, demanding Westminster does more to curb energy prices:

“we’ve been saying for a long time, as have Tata, energy costs in the UK are too high… Now we’ve said this many, many times to the UK Government and they have not responded effectively yet, but we do need to see action to help not just Tata but all those industries who do use a lot of energy, to actually become competitive compared to those industries they compete against in Europe.”

Odd then, that after Carwyn took personal responsibility for the Welsh energy sector, he ploughed ahead with his plan to “move to a green economy as fast as possible“; encouraging the mass construction of the subsidised windmills that have sent energy prices soaring. Fel rhech mewn pot jam…

Charles Moore on the aid charity’s sex scandal…

“Oxfam was the Harvey Weinstein of aid – arrogant, bullying, conspicuous in its faults, yet utterly immune until the balance of fear mysteriously changed overnight.”
