Not a lot of use for a new boiler if the gas runs out or gets to expensive to use.

Doesn't burning gas create greenhouse gas?

It would be better spent on making electric water heating more available and efficient.

From April, people with a home wind turbine or solar panels who plug their excess power into the national grid will receive on average £900 a year.

Have they changed the planning laws to allow installation because many are turned down as they do not fit in with local authority planning rules

Good for the sales of wood burners click here recycle those old pallets and trees - as long as someone is planting new trees the it's only a temporary increase in CO2!

So if I hand the wife in I get a newer younger model. Sounds good to me.

Darling and Brown are utter embarrassments...just wait until after the election and you will really see/feel the effect of some hefty cuts and if I worked for any county council or a company that supplies said councils, I would not be taking out any loans/mortgages etc.

Is she gas or electric?

Gas or at least full of hot air.

Although not in the headline figures it seems that hidden in the document is the news that state pensions will not rise in 2010. That's to compensate for the 2.5% increase next (election)year and because the cost of living is falling.
