Either........ Or............

Either, as the BBC reports, thousands of green jobs could drive growth, Huhne says, or we are, indeed, being led up the garden path.

And we all know where politicians lead us.........................

Lets hope they don't repeat the mistake the Australians made with home insulation schemes. Several home were burnt down due to poorly laid insulation.

And you only need look at Spain to see how wasteful "Green" jobs have been. Over half a million euro's to create each job, and 2,2 real jobs destroyed by each of them....

Ah, as in "Being led up the garden path", the second, and less acknowledged part of the saying is "to have my throat slit". It's an old pig slaughter reference from the days when farmers would slaughter their own swine on a 'pig bench'.

Very apposite.

Oh for goodness sake.

Go out and break a few windows, it'll have the same effect.

Nice one WY, but over our politicians heads I'm afraid. I really do despair of the stupidity from our ruling "elite". I would not hire most of them to sweep streets.

When will the media get it into their thick skulls?

Jobs are a *cost*, not a *benefit* !
