257. Lies, damned lies, and The Wind is Free | Roger Helmer MEP
No it’s not. It’s very expensive indeed (or at least energy generated from wind is expensive — and intermittent). It’s an existential threat to our economy and our energy security (see piece below). So I couldn’t resist bringing home this little badge from one of the companies we met in Vaasa, Finland.

258. Sustainable energy just isn't …. well, sustainable | Roger Helmer MEP
I’ve just returned from a flying visit to Vaasa, Finland, with the European Energy Forum. The delegation was led by Slovenian MEP Romana Jordan. Vaasa boasts an “energy cluster” of cutting-edge companies in the energy field, and we spent a very solid day with Wärtsilä, a global Finnish company developing and making very large internal combustion engines. These have been widely used in shipbuilding, where the company has a substantial market share, and has production and assembly operations around the world, including key ship-building nations like China and Korea.But increasingly, engines of this type are also used for power generation, especially as back-up for wind. I’d always assumed that conventional gas-fired generation was the natural back-up for wind, but it seems that these machines are also ideal for the purpose. They can run on heavy or light fuel oil, or natural gas (think shale gas), and on bio-fuels and some oil wastes. They ramp up rapidly as the wind drops, and can switch instantly — literally instantly, we saw it done — from gas to diesel.Wärtsilä has made a rational commercial decision to market these machines as back-up for wind, given the commitment of European governments to renewables. But the message I took away was that wind, as a significant contributor to power generation, absolutely requires back-up.

259. Forever in Boris's shadow..... - Telegraph Blogs
It seems there’s one man who has managed to derive absolutely no joy from today’s triumphant victory parade, and that man is our Prime Minister, David Cameron. After a summer of watching Boris take centre stage, Red Dave must have been furious to discover that his speech to the cheering crowds would take place underneath…

260. The strange death of BNP England | Telegraph Blogs
The BNP looks like it is coming to the end of its existence, the political party’s decline and fall having a suitable touch of comedy. Having collapsed in the polls since their 2009 heyday, party leader Nick Griffin is now displaying the most obvious symptom of a movement in disarray – turning his energy on rivals.As Matthew Goodwin of Nottingham University explains, Griffin has produced a report on the English Defence League, "claiming that behind the EDL lie a number of shadowy neoconservatives and 'Zionist terrorists' who are seeking to manipulate public concern over Islam to launch new wars and split the far right nationalist scene".

261. The Met Office - defending the indefensible, as per usual – Telegraph Blogs
The Met Office is very cross with me. Well you can hardly blame it given that I've just published a big piece explaining what a spectacular waste of taxpayers' money it is.So now it has used some of the £200 million we pay it every year to get one of its in-house turd-polishers to publish a defiant blogpost defending its inglorious forecasting record, such as its non-existent "barbecue summer" and the terrible, snow-bound winter of 2010 which, as late as October that year, it was confidently predicting would be "unusually dry and mild."

262. No politician – not even St Barack Obama – can create jobs by spending more money...
The Independent reports that the Chancellor 'is drawing up plans for a major growth package to boost the British economy'. Good: that's what Chancellors are supposed to do, isn't it?So what are the elements of this package? Is George Osborne sweeping away the legislation that puts so many firms off hiring people? Is he slashing National Insurance? Is he scrapping Labour's equality laws? Is he withdrawing from the EU's 48-hour week rules, or refusing to implement the Temporary Workers Directive?Not according to the Indy. The package will mainly involve spending money and 'creating' jobs – especially in the field of alternative energy. 'The move follows President Obama's $450bn (£280bn) plan to create new jobs'.

263. Crony capitalism is failing; let's try the real thing – Telegraph Blogs
The past four years have seen governments throughout the West turn to a ghoulish corporatism, in which selected private companies are bailed out with public money. Understandably, people from across the political spectrum have reacted angrily. The Tea Partiers and the Occupiers are both protesting against the same thing, viz the rescue of large banks by taxpayers.But whereas the Occupiers, in a slightly inchoate way, believe they are complaining about capitalism, free marketeers point out that, in a capitalist system, bad banks would have been allowed to collapse, their assets sold to more efficient competitors. Bondholders, shareholders and some depositors would have lost money, but taxpayers wouldn't have contributed a penny.When we make that argument in full – as I did in a direct exchange with some Occupy LSX types recently (see here) – the typical response is 'Yeah, well that might be your theoretical capitalism, but we're dealing with the one that actually exists'.

264. Doctor **** - Telegraph Blogs
Phew! What a blessed relief! The rumours that the next Doctor Who was going to be Peter Capaldi – previously best known, of course, for his role as fictional Songs of Praise producer Tristan Campbell in the Vicar of Dibley – turn out to be true."Thank **** for that," as that amusing foul-mouthed spin doctor character in The Thick Of It, whatever his name is, would no doubt say.I'm delighted for at least two reasons. First, because it means an epic fail for Caroline Criado-Perez's most recent Change.Org petition: "Making the 12th Doctor Who another white man is racist and sexist. We want Diane Abbott to get the role – and if she doesn't Caitlin and I are going to scweam and scweam and…

265. The case for Swedish-style tax transparency – Telegraph Blogs
I'm half-attracted by Polly Toynbee's suggestion that all data held by the government, including tax returns, should be open to the public. Polly thinks that Nordic-style transparency would lead to Nordic-style income equality, but I'm not sure she's right. In any country, of course, some people will vote out of resentment. That is their tragedy: envy is an ugly and debilitating condition, but it is not nearly as widespread as its sufferers believe. The recent anger over top rates of pay had far more to do with the sense that some financiers were being rewarded for failure than with a general dislike of wealth. Nobody much minded gazillion-pound bonuses while their own ISAs were rising in value. It was only when their taxes were used to prop up incompetent banks that people objected. And who can blame them?

266. Birmingham, once the powerhouse of the nation, has been destroyed by decades of entrenched socialism
What's wrong with Brum?EVERYTHING, according to a damning new report by Ofsted chief Sir Michael Wilshaw who has described it as a "national disgrace" which compares unfavourably with Cuba and parts of Eastern Europe.I don't dispute his analysis for one moment. But I certainly don't share the Schadenfreude many will be experiencing on having their worst suspicions confirmed about arguably Britain's most despised city, home – so opinion surveys keep telling us – of Britain's least favourite accent. As someone who used to speak with that accent myself – Alvechurch C of E Primary – and whose grandfather and great-grandfather made their fortunes there, I see no cause for gleeful cackling: only despair at the tragedy wrought against our once-proud country by decades of entrenched socialism.

267. The world is obsessed with the US presidential poll, but the congressional elections matter more...
British Toryism can be surprisingly unpolitical. It's an instinct rather than an ideology. Or, rather, an amalgam of instincts: patriotism, distrust of officialdom, respect for property and so on.American conservatism is a far more doctrinal affair. Its exponents become as passionate when debating the virtues of Rothbardian versus Randian libertarianism as when weighing the merits of, say, Gingrich versus Santorum. In Britain, we see factionalism of this sort as the province of student Lefties, and a bar to electoral success. The American experience suggests that we might be wrong – that idealism stimulates enthusiasm.

269. If the NHS is the envy of the world the world is bonkers – Telegraph Blogs
I'm trying to think of professions where killing people wins you promotion, a higher salary and a bigger pension. Apart from the military, the only one I can think of is the National Health Service. Lest you think this is a sick joke, consider the case of Cynthia Bower.This lovely, talented lady first proved her mettle as chief executive of the strategic health authority NHS West Midlands, whose responsibilities included Mid-Staffordshire hospital. When evidence emerged that vast numbers of patients – possibly as many as 1,200 – were dying there from neglect and shoddy care,

270. Sore Balls in a squeeze | Left Watch | ConservativeHome
The Independent headlines its interview with Ed Balls today: "Lib Dems should leave the Coalition and join us". This is the best news angle that can be found from it, though the Shadow Chancellor is scarcely likely to have said: "So you're asking what I'd do if the Lib Dems quit government, betrayed Cameron, voted with us and offered to help make me Shadow Chancellor? It's obvious, isn't it: I'd tell them to get lost!" However, he is careful to make the obligatory reference to Nick Clegg having to go in any such circumstances. I think Balls's response is a means of spinning himself as more coalition-friendly - and less tribal - than his critics assert without conceding nothing of substance: if he'd said he was open to coalition after the next election that would indeed have been news.

271. First tobacco, then booze, then sugar: the control freaks who would happily ban everything...
In this week's Spectator I have a rant about all those pressure groups you see quoted in all the papers pretty much every day. Some are small, obscure and marginal – Bright Blue, the think tank for Lib Dems who want to play at being Tories, comes to mind – while some sound superficially respectable – the British Medical Association, say. What they all have in common is that they tend, on the whole, to lend far, far too much credibility to a hardcore of professional activists whose tedious and unhelpful opinions we would most of us do better to ignore completely.

272. Which? hails Boris’s rail investment | Back Boris 2012 Blog
A rail passenger survey by Which? Magazine shows that London Overground has been voted the most improved commuter company, a ringing endorsement of Boris Johnson’s management of and investment in the line. Southeastern railway, which the Mayor proposes to takeover with his plans for suburban rail, came bottom of the table – showing how needed his improvements are.The results come on the day Boris visited Clapham Junction, which would benefit from his plans for extending London's first orbital rail network. This independent survey is also a boost for point 8 of Boris’s 9 point plan for Greater London: reducing tube delays by 30% by 2015, building Crossrail and an orbital rail to link our suburbs, and extending the bike hire scheme.
