Cash for Ash ruled "Not a Good Idea"

Recommended Posts

In a rare bout of sanity a Northern Ireland Judge has ruled that paying pellet burning RHI claimants far more that the cost of the fuel (aka Cash for Ash) is not a good idea - Apparently overpaying by £700 Million over the next 20 years is against the public interest. Somewhat bizarrely it's only against the public interest this year - Next years the same lawyers will all be paid to come back and argue whether or not overpaying by £665 Million over 19 years is a good idea. The politician behind the scheme (a Mrs A. Foster) is currently pursuing other "money no object " initiatives.

Maybe the judge could be persuaded to get on a ferry and take a look at the latest Hinkley-C master plan.

If you are following the inquiry its not painting a good picture of the civil servants or the politicians one bit. They turned down a different scheme that would have been £300m cheaper to run but would have cost just £3.5m extra workload to set up. Seems the civil servants didn't fancy doing any work which is no real surprise.
