"Tory Patriotism Fuels Wind Energy Ad Campaign"

"England expects every Tory to do their duty and support British wind power. That is the unmistakeable message of a new advertising campaign with a union flag and wind turbine appearing in the right-of-centre Spectator magazine this Thursday."

"The use of patriotism is the latest tactic in an increasingly bitter war of words between Conservative party backbenchers and those committed to low-carbon energy.

Ian Mays, chief executive of Renewable Energy Systems (RES) one of the backers of the British Wind campaign, said the country's future energy security was being ignored by critics as North Sea supplies ran down."
