image for All New Wind Turbines To Be Built In Cities
Pick the bones out of this, you smug, pompous towny twats!

Wind generated electricity is here to stay - but rural dwellers have been up in arms about the number of gigantic turbines being erected in their backyards.

In an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights, a group of country dwellers have overturned recent planning approvals all around the UK.

All wind farms from now on are to be built within city limits, no rural sites will be approved and above all, no windmills will be permitted in green belts.

It is anticipated that windy streets, like London's Oxford Street and exposed areas such as Hyde Park Corner will prove attractive to windfarm developers.

As of now, sufficient space in London, Birmingham and Manchester has been earmarked by the Business Secretary, Lord Mangelson, Minister With A Finger In Every Pie, for the erection of more that 23,000 urban turbines.

"This is a triumph for British Fair Play" remarks "Towny Towers" campaigner Earnest Dogood "and we have the full support of the government. For too long the faceless bureaucrats have blighted beautiful landscapes with these contraptions. It is time the townies had to live with a few of them".

The first urban wind turbine is to be erected at Parliament Square, where it will have the inestimable advantage of the hot air currents from the Lower and Upper Chambers.
