Retrospective Consultation!

Yes, retrospective consultation is a new one on me as well, but obviously isn't to Gregory Barker MP, Climate Change Minister at the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).

The hapless Mr Barker has been given the 'poisoned chalice' job by Chris Huhne of consulting on a reduction in domestic feed in tariff for renewable energy. He is so anxious to be rid of the job that he announces that the reduction of the Feed in Tariff will be introduced on the 12th December 2011; a full 11 days before the consultation ends on the 23rd December 2011!

I now have a whole new understanding of 'meaningful consultation.'

What a shambolic way to run a government. Clueless doesn't begin to sum it up. It's a hell of a kick in the teeth for workers at Sharp as well as the plans to reduce energy bills for thousands of householders in Wrecsam.
