When I stumbled across this article, headlined 'LibDems to create 57,000 wind jobs', my first thought was that the LibDems were hiring more staff. Unfortunately, it concerns a 'plan' by young Clegg to create jobs building wind turbines by upgrading disused dockyards.

Then, true to form, we find yet another 'well-sourced' piece of journalism, here.

Err, Clegg & Bell have either not done their research (whats new) or just don't understand the subject they are speaking and writing about (whats new).

Consider these facts:*

Gordon Brown talks airily of building 4,000 offshore turbines by our target date - this would mean sticking two of these 2,000-ton monsters, each the height of Blackpool Tower, into the seabed every day for the next 11 years.

When they touch anything, even wind turbines, politicians get it wrong.
