10,000,000 Miles in a Nissan Leaf?

Friday, 16 December 2016


I have been informed by someone in Northern Ireland that 
Northern Irish version of the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme paid out:
£1600 subsidy for every £1000 of pellets burnt

And that these payments continue as I type this

What is totally unacceptable - is the way that the media - BBC, ITV etcetera have swerved telling us all the scale of the screw-up on a individual "consumer" basis. The BBC in particular announcing arbitrarily and frankly risibly reduced overall estimates of the taxpayer's liability for the payments.

What we are very obviously witnessing here is weapons grade incompetence from public servants - and a cover up that's allowed the perpetrators to evade responsibility via "retirement", "promotion" and sideways job hopping.

This is an isolated case in a far, far away land bearing no relationship to the superlative service provided by DECC BIS in the pursuit of efficient, fit for purpose UK energy supplies. /sarc

We on the mainland are on the hook for a large part of this - yet the BBC keep hiding the details by keeping it all on their Northern Ireland web site - when this iis patently a mainland issue as well.
