Who are the politicians?

According to an article by Robert Mendick and Edward Malnick in The Sunday Telegraph today,

"In October, a flagship Conservative policy, which would have required local referendums on large-scale projects such as wind farms and housing estates, was quietly abandoned after intense lobbying by RenewableUK. "

Who were the politicians who made the decision to give way to the lobbyists? And did they have any links (family or otherwise) to the wind industry?

We need to know.

The article also describes how the wind energy industry "drafted in eco-activists to drum up support for wind farm projects in the face of local opposition."
(The Windbyte website has some good examples of this kind of behaviour)

As we keep saying - how can anyone call such "eco-activists" Green?

Incidentally, we have a page on our website that lists more politicians who have spoken out against wind farms - in addition to the 106 who wrote to David Cameron. There are some surprising names included, and it is a work in progress, so if you know of any more please contact us.
