Windfarm Targets to be met by 2023, minister claims.

The government's windfarm targets look to be met and possibly surpassed by 2023, the Welsh minister for meteorological affairs explained to a packed news conference this morning.

'Despite being bordered on at least one side by the Irish sea,' explained the minister, displaying extraordinary geographic skills, 'we have sadly never had enough wind to support our needs. But the new windfarms currently being built should allow us to generate enough wind to be self-sufficient by 2023.' Asked if the plundering of third-world moving air resources had anything to do with the decision, the minister explained that the change in policy was, in part, due to the new 'ethical foreign wind policy' undertaken by the current Labour government.

'Although cheap imports of wind from Mozambique have in the past been considered good for both nations,' continued the minister, 'a shift towards independence from the wind-producing nations is also a matter of national security.' The windfarms, large fans driven by electric motors, can generate anything from a gentle zephyr to a gale, depending on national needs.
