Nothing sticks with Politicians anymore!!
If Trump and UKIP can blunder their way through successful campaigns then surely why can't anyone survive a political scandal anymore??
The fact the Shinners are keeping so quiet about it makes me think they're up to their necks with members being a part of the RHI scheme as well!!
In N.Ireland, if there is a scheme to get money from the public purse it is part of the psyche to get in as quick a possible and for as much as possible. It is the way we are, getting every subsidy that comes available. I would venture to say that the nationalist community has the edge over their unionist cousins when it comes to this. Their subservient attitude to the crown as its subjects still lingers. So expect that both sides have mates who have the hottest chicken and sheds in the world and to hell with global warming as long as the money rolls in every month.

BTW every business bought a boiler costing around £20K t0 £30K so the payback time will still be significant depending on how inefficient the boiler is:
Pellets: £120 per tonne bulk
Subsidy: £192 per tonne
Profit:£72 per tonne burnt
Breakeven point: £25,000/£72 = 347 tonnes
Now it depends on the burn rate, anyone have a clue? Solmatix (boiler sales) say 3/5 years.
