So much for Cameron’s “greenest government ever“.
George Osborne’s staff at his constituency office in Tatton this morning called the police after comedian Josie Long and a solar installation team – on behalf of carbon-cutting charity 10:10 – tried to deliver an early Christmas present of free solar panels to him.
Josie and her team tried to explain the panels were a gift that would not only save the local Conservative party money on their energy bills, but even generate income through the feed-in tariff as well as help the country to meet its climate change targets.
In reply, Osborne’s staff summoned the police.
“We did our best to bring some sunshine into George Osborne’s life this morning, but he didn’t want it. It just seems a bit odd.”
Josie has now offered the free panels to Boris Johnson.
Awaiting his response…
