Miliband lines up loft insulating jobs for after the election
Fuel bills will pay for eco-upgrades
More than 10,000 homes a week will be given 'eco-upgrades' under Goverment plans to make every home in Britain environmentally friendly.
Energy companies will work with local authorities to carry out the ambitious refurbishment programme "street by street" and "house by house".
Mr Miliband admitted households will pay around £50 per year to subsidise the nationwide scheme through fuel bills but insisted that this would be outweighed by savings in the long term.
The Home Energy Management Strategy is expected to create up to 65,000 jobs. To protect consumers against "cowboy eco-builders" a new accreditation scheme will ensure minimum health and safety standards for workmen.
So a state regulated army of turkey workers under local authority control will go "house to house" demanding householders alter their properties to conform with Mr Miliband's dreams and we all will pay for this scheme.
Is there a box to tick that says I've already paid to insulate my castle and I don't want to pay again or be bothered?
