A few weeks ago we opined that it may be necessary to look to the EC for our salvation in the matter of the government's enthusiasm for lining EDF's palm with gold for 35 years via its intended exorbitantly-priced electricity contract for the planned Hinkley C nuclear power station.
And lo! the EC has laboured - extremely quickly (although only released on Friday it's dated mid December) - and brought forth a devastating 70-page masterpiece, damning the dirty deed as illicit state aid. Only a preliminary opinion mind - but what an opinion ! Too late to offer a summary now, so more next week.
After the years of reading the desperate, mindless pulp and sophistry issuing from DECC and its predecessors every since Miliband's 2008 Energy Act, it is a true pleasure to read such cogent reasoning and plain-speaking. Here - have a read yourself.
And a good weekend ! This has started mine brilliantly: the radioactive turd that is EDF ushered closer to the WC. And there's another French team to be roughed up this afternoon ... Swing Lo !
