Another corporate "loophole" it seems, this way they can be cited as being proponents of clean energy! Such shenanigans need REGULATION (I know, the corporate "R" word)!

i'm not giving the british gov't a pass but in certain countries, it is hard to make them do what donations are marked to do. somali is an example of this.

Why aren't I surprised - it's usually par for course with Conservative governments that they ensure their sponsors are allowed to wet their snouts in a trough of taxpayers' money.

How disgusting, I'm so sick of hearing about ways monies are suppose to go for one thing and it ends up on the hands of money stealing crooks.Thanks Cal
