ECOTRICITY founder Dale Vince shares his opinion on the Secretary of State's decision to grant permission for an incinerator to be built at Javelin Park.

He said: “Eric Pickles has to be the biggest hypocrite in Britain.

"He’s spent most of last year telling us that Localism was important when it comes to renewable energy and using this as an excuse to overturn planning decisions and stop wind energy projects going ahead - and now he does the polar opposite.

"He’s over riding the very clear very strong wishes of local people (and planning committees) not to have this incinerator and quite incredibly he’s invoking climate change and renewable energy as a justification – to burn rubbish – which is clearly not a renewable resource.

"Eric Pickles should be renamed the Minister for Hypocrisy. "
