Governments, investors and even the World Bank are rushing for the exits in the Great Escape from the green energy bubble.

Solar energy appears to be the worst affected sector so far. Dow Jones reports on a startling U-turn by Britain’s ultra-green government has caught investors off guard and shock waves across the markets will likely precipitate the further rush from green energy projects to shale gas.

The UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change made the shock announcement as it revealed a comprehensive review of its Feed-in Tariff (FIT) program.

And of course the plod were involved. Natch.

A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary said police had "spoken with the hotel's management about the issues."

What was the offence, you ask? Remember the Christian couple who were castigated for turning away a gay couple? This is the exact opposite. It shows that we have a class of person that is professionally offended.

What was the offence?

Police investigated a village hotel owner for erecting a "Poofters welcome here" sign, in reference to a recent court ruling that B&Bs are obliged to accept homosexual customers.

Well Done Brillo
