Mr Ed's Climate Police Will Come Calling
"The Great British Refurb" will fit every home in need of insulation in the roof or walls by 2015. By 2030 every home will be offered a "whole house" green refurbishment, including fitting renewable heat technologies like ground source heat pumps and solar panels.
Ed Miliband, the Energy and Climate Change Secretary, said teams of energy advisers would go around "house by house, street by street" to advise people how to improve their homes.
Loans would then be made available to pay for the new technologies, that can cost thousands of pounds.
It is not yet decided how the massive programme will be funded but it is expected a large amount of money will come from a levy on energy companies that will ultimately be passed onto consumers.
"We cannot afford not to act," he said. "
What fun dinner must have been in the Miliband household; the old man Adolphe was a Marxist illegal immigrant always grumbling about the Americans, David would have been banging his rattle in his high chair until he went to University and Ed is obviously named after and is as bright as a talking horse.
