The UK doesn\’t have any silicon fabs, never will do.

We don\’t friggin\’ make solar cells, we\’re never going to, so how can anything any government do bugger up the export market for something we don\’t and never will make?

    Wouldn’t it be more efficient to make cheap plastic fake ones and give them to people to put on their houses, or something?
