That sounds like the stupidest scheme I've ever heard. Was it developed by ALEC??? Sounds like something the US greedmongers would do; and I guess with these multinational developers, that may be the case...or the UK has taken lessons from the US. I haven't heard about it in the US though, although I think we'd better get ready to combat this...surely it's on its way across the pond.

And now for another boneheaded idea from the greedy carpetbaggers who under the guise of the Green mantle just want another excuse to rape and pillage for profit as usual.

It is just shocking and outrageous that these actions are even thought of!!...this coalition government has an awful lot to answer to. Cameron and his cronies do not give a dam about people or the environment! & Nick Clegg is just a spineless idiot!!
