Huhne, who has been a prime mover behind the plan for higher targets, hit back angrily, telling the Guardian: \”The short-termist view of sticking to 20% doesn\’t cut the mustard. Moving to 30% would give our businesses a head-start in new green industries and get us off the oil hook quicker, insulating us from oil price spikes.\”
What would you call someone who said that in order to protect us from prices spiking from their current 10 pence a unit up to as much as 20 pence a unit, we should all immediately install energy systems which cost us 45 pence a unit?
Yup, insane, that\’s what you\’d call them.
Unfortunately Chris Huhne is currently inside the Cabinet pissing out, not quite where we want him to be.
