There are much cheaper, reliable, pleasing on the eye and cleaner ways to generate electricity than wind.

Inn fact if we removed ALL subsidies we would after a period of intense turbulence emerge as a far more efficeint society.

Of course most subsidies aren't subsidies. The government commissions a service and has to pay for it, no subside involved. That would include, transport, road maintenance, NHS, etc.

I suppose if "subsidies" include the NHS, there'd be a lot less people around

a way to much reduce the turbulence would be to withdraw them very slowly

that's one case where it would be counterproductive. A much less healthy workforce means less productivity. So even economically it makes no sense, before looking at the moral/wellbeing side of it.
School is another. 3rd world countries not eduating their citizens results in a less productive citizenry/workforce.

This business about more 'efficiency' without government subsidy is quasi-religious nonsense. No high tech industry (software, armaments, aerospace to name some off the top of my head) can compete without govermnent subsidy *and* protection while the biggest corporate state in history masquerading as a supporter of free enterprise dominates all of them with military budget dwarfing the whole GDP of most other countries.
By the way, the success of US military procurement in dominating all these industries does rather give the lie to the inventiveness of "free enterprise". It may or may not be an expensive way to do things but it works.

Remind us how much taxpayer's money is going to go into Hinkley Point? And care to guess how much the costs will overrun by? And how much electricity consumers will be subsidising its cost through higher charges?

Rather less than is going into renewables, that's for sure, and it'll last a deal sight longer.
