The average wind speed in the Betws area today is 17 mph, effective wind speed of only 8 mph, because it takes 9 mph to start the turbines. Even when a windy front comes in from the Atlantic, the turbines are almost completely useless, generating very little, wildly fluctuating, power. So they are a complete disaster, the result of ill thought out subsidies and the aristocratic greed of my distant cousin, Beaufort. This direct assault on democracy is best summed up by my attached sonnets and prose poetry in both languages, especially the sonnet against wind turbines on page 96 of “Collected Poetry – Barddoniaeth”, now very popular around the world in up to 182 countries. It begins with an extract from Milton’s “Paradise Lost, Book Eleven”, notably the famous lines: “But I was far deceived, for now I see / Peace to corrupt no less than war to waste”. John Milton was foreign minister for the 1649 Republic. My ancestor Oliver Cromwell became Lord Protector in 1653. The present Leader of the Opposition is a republican and a large minority in Britain has always adhered to the 1649 Republic. It is of course the model for the United States.
