“Absolutely useless”

That’s how Prince Philip described wind farms recently.

And in a line that’s reminiscent of Clint Eastwood’s famous, “Get off my lawn!”, he told a turbine peddler who was hoping to set up shop on his land quite clearly to “stay away from my estate, young man.”

Why the peddler was surprised is anyone’s guess since the prince had good reason to pan the inefficient, massively expensive gimmicks.

    Besides being useless, and very harmful to the wildlife, they are very dangerous as well, when something goes wrong you wouldn’t want to be neer one. 😯

    Well he is only telling the truth. When you have farmers and their families complaining about the constant “whine”, and they end up at the doctor’s you know there is a problem, and boy are they ugly.

    Good on Phil- & for once, it’s not being reported as one one of his famous ‘gaffes’- he must have hit a real nerve with 1000’s.
