Screwy business

Her Majesty installs a hydroelectric turbine at Windsor Castle that won't produce enough electricity to do anything useful and certainly won't create any surplus electricity that can be sold to the national grid, yet the insanity of the government's "green" subsidies means that she'll be making a steady profit off of the useless lump of iron as if it were cranking volts to the nation 24/7.

As far as the Queen is concerned, I'm not that bothered.  She's really just getting back a bit of the revenue that the Treasury nicks from her every year and then grudgingly refunds a thin slice under the euphemism of the Civil List. However, this story is repeated up and down the country at every "green" project that could as easily be replaced with a camp fire made of bank notes.
