So much for Cameron’s “greenest government ever“.

George Osborne’s staff at his constituency office in Tatton this morning called the police after comedian Josie Long and a solar installation team – on behalf of carbon-cutting charity 10:10 – tried to deliver an early Christmas present of free solar panels to him.

Josie and her team tried to explain the panels were a gift that would not only save the local Conservative party money on their energy bills, but even generate income through the feed-in tariff as well as help the country to meet its climate change targets.

In reply, Osborne’s staff summoned the police.
