Quite so. On the solar company closes down story:
Nearly 1,000 staff were laid off in Leicester yesterday as home insulation and solar panel provider, Mark Group, fell into administration.
Within hours Climate Energy, which describes itself as “the UK’s largest provider of energy efficiency solutions” had also closed down, announcing the news on their website.
OK, right. And Mark finds a comment underneath the original article:
Presumably British consumers will now buy Chinese imports and the British workers will go on the dole and the country loses the tax income.
Quite rightly pointing out that if it’s the subsidies that were paying those wages then we’re no worse off now, are we?
But it’s even more delicious than that. Because these were installation firms, not manufacturing firms. Installing…..Chinese panels?
