Or as Wiki has it, fighting unwinnable or futile battles. One wonders whether Chris Huhne has seen this leaked report. and whether he is intent on following the Spanish Road To Ruin?
"...today’s leaked document reveals that even the socialist Spanish government now acknowledges the ruinous effects of green economic policy."
"The government report does not expressly confirm the highest-profile finding of the non-governmental report: that Spain’s “green economy” program cost the country 2.2 jobs for every job “created” by the state. However, the figures published in the government document indicate they arrived at a job-loss number even worse than the 2.2 figure from the independent study."
"Remarkably, these items have received virtually no media attention." No surprise there then!
And far be it for me to mention the fact that Obama is now asking Spain to stop a programme he wishes to introduce in the USA.
