David Hockney

David Hockney is in the news again, as he has been appointed to the exclusive Order of Merit.

The Guardian lists the individuals in the Order of Merit (there are never more than 14 members at one time)- see more here.

Members include David Attenborough, as well as the Duke of Edinburgh. It seems rather sad that David Attenborough, who has spoken up so consistently on behalf of wildlife and wilderness, appears to have swallowed the Greenwash about wind turbines. He was one of those who spoke in favour of the Glyndebourne wind turbine at the Public Inquiry where the turbine was given approval, despite the fact that the area was about to be designated as a National Park.

Perhaps the Duke of Edinburgh will appreciate David Hockney's presence, to give balance if the topic of wind turbines ever comes up at a meeting.
