Russian Bear Tackles Bug-Bear: Gazprom vs Windfarms !

Followers of the energy wing of this blog will have tracked Gazprom's slow rehabilitation from flailing dinosaur to market respectability (sort-of). Now their redemption is complete, as they tackle head-on the great energy bug-bear of C@W:

"Scrap UK's Wind Farm Plans, Says Gazprom Boss"

Good man Alexander Medvedev! And this is no-holds-barred stuff.

"If we do not want to see the authors of the 2020 strategy decapitated in a public square [Ed Miliband this means you] I do not think they can forget about gas," he said.

Actually, Sacha old chap, public relations doesn't quite work like this, because one of the reasons some folk like windfarms is, they reduce our reliance on, err ... you ... *coughs*.

Nevermind, you'll get the hang of it. And - keep up the good work, we know your heart's in the right place! PS - please swing in behind the German spot market; then you'll really get some good press around here.

Bloody cold in Moscow, just back this morning. -15 and they reckoned it was balmy!

Minus 15 is balmy over there because it's a dry cool.
