What a surprise!
A power company that has received £6bn in UK green subsidies has kept burning wood from some of the world's most precious forests, the BBC has found.
Papers obtained by Panorama show Drax took timber from rare forests in Canada it had claimed were "no go areas".
It comes as the government decides whether to give the firm's Yorkshire site billions more in environmental subsidies funded by energy bill payers.
We told you. "Green" bollox is a scam to extract money from ordinary people and hand it to rich shareholders of opportunist "green" companies.
All this will eventually become the biggest "I told you so" in history. But the gullibles fell for it.
"Hello? Is that Acme Professional Marketing? Ah, good, Rishi Sunak here. I need a marketing photo for the election that shows me as a competent, hard-working prime minister who can be taken seriously."
"No, no, not in some posh room in Westminster, I want to lose the rich posh boy image... Well, I don't know... man of the people, common touch, maybe something up North..."
"Oh! A slave labour dodgy clothing workshop in a drab mill town? Yes! That strikes the right note!"
A few days later...
"No, it has to look natural, not posed. Oh, I also don't want Hunt looking like potential leader material, so can you take the picture while he's having one of his psychotic episodes? Oh! He's having one now! Quick! Take the photo! I shall put on my most convincing serious thoughtful statesmanlike face."
"Oh yes. Perfect! You've nailed it! This is without doubt the photo that sums up today's Conservative Party. Half a million, did you say? Worth every penny! No, no, the taxpayer will pay it, no problem. This will be the photo on every election poster. Thank you, thank you!"
