A Churchillian effort will be needed if Britain is to meet to meet the 15 per cent target (imposed by the EU) of its energy needs from renewable sources by 2020, Peers have warned.
Much will depend on the Government being able to persuade the public to use less power and to begin thinking about producing their own electricity at home - so called micro generation.
To achieve this planning laws will have to be shunted aside and Ministers given more powers to drive through renewable energy schemes even when there is local opposition.
So the silencing of public opposition and the destruction of inconvenient laws to do the bidding of our Continental masters is now described as Churchillian. Have they no shame?
