This is one of Ritchie’s pet schemes. Go to the magic money tree to get all of Britain’s housing insulated. A !Green! Army, offering jobs, and insulation, and investment, in every community in Britain! Paid for by !Green! QE!
More than 1.5 million homes have been left blighted by botched cavity insulation work carried out to meet Government energy targets, experts say.
Properties across Britain have suffered dampness and mould, causing smells, crumbling plaster and stained walls. In some cases, the value of homes has plunged.
The problem being that we did actually go and do that and it didn’t work.
Just because national plans never do. There are always too many details, too many exceptions. You simply cannot wave a wand over 65 million people, 25 million households, and expect the reaction of all to be the same.
National planning doesn’t work because there’s not a uniform nation to plan.
