Christopher Booker has highlighted a new development in our mad energy policy, inherited from Labour. Here is the article in which he refers to a new commitment, apparently made by the current minister in charge of our energy policy, Andrea Leadsom. Mrs Leadsom believes we should leave the EU and her expertise is in economics, but she now seems to have embraced the climate narrative and so has committed the UK to reduce CO2 emissions to 100% by 2050. Of course this is simply pie in the sky. She will have left office long before and it will fall to her successors to end the madness at some point to save the country from bankruptcy.
