Green Taliban’s windmill fails

The UK is being carpeted with windmills, promoted by the Green Taliban but with the cash being trousered by rich toffs (which is what with happening with all of the loony Green schemes).

Well there is one less of these monstrosities in the UK today.

The £250,000 tower, which stood as tall as a six storey building, was hit by gale force gusts of 50mph.

The structure then collapsed at a farm in Bradworth, Devon, leaving a “mangled wreck”.

Margaret Coles, Chairwoman of Bradworthy District Council, said hail storms and strong winds have hit the area and the turbine, installed just three years ago, simply could not withstand the wind.

“The bolts on the base could not withstand the wind and as we are a very windy part of the country they [the energy company] have egg on their face,” she said. “There are concerns about safety.”

The Bradworthy Parish Council, who opposed the turbine, expressed concern that there was “nothing exceptional” in the speed of the winds.

Installed by renewable energy company Dulas it was supposed to have a life expectancy of 25 years.

How long before Meridian’s bird-blenders start falling on the locals around here?

      Chance would be a fine thing! But your average greenie is too busy jetting about the planet lecturing us on our carbon footprints.

    Bloody lice on the landscape………the watermelon commies have a lot to answer for and time goes by inevitably their shithouse schemes will be found out.
    Unfortunately money and time is wasted while the bullshit slowly fails.

    Where’s Gareth Morgan, looks like these fuckers kill just as many birds as Felix. Oh that’s right the world is heating up because of fossil fuel use and wind mills will save us all, what a joke.

    Germany is dumping nuclear after Fukushima and they have realised that their wind farms aill not produce the reqd energy. So they either go COAL or buy energy from France the majority of which is produced by NUCLEAR
