That Dull Green Sheen
"Government pulls plug on funding for Green Deal Finance Company after only 10,000 homes sign up to energy household efficiency programme."
Farewell then, to the Green Deal,
That revolution in upgrading Britain’s
Old and draughty housing stock.
It was so faithfully promised, but it
Turned out to be a "total flop",
Say ministers blaming others;
Not enough insulating; and
Too much ripping off of people,
Rather than old boilers from their walls.
So, no more loans for dodgy deals;
And no more cash-back grants which were
Far too popular, say the money men.
Just cold and draughty houses
Ready for another Winter.
Welcome to UK, where we've
Extra CO2 for everyone to share.
