Well! Well! Do I detect a slightly negative attitude from Webcraft to wind turbines.Could this be something to do with the Clachan proposals being on his own doorstep ? He also does not understand that it is the boat owners in places like Ardrossan who desperately need to get away from it all to places like Puilladobhran, where they have peace and quiet.That’s why they bought the boat in the first place !

  • All very commendable but a touch of the old ‘rose tinted spectacles’. Having been in the sailing business on Scotland’s West Coast for almost 20 years and having brought several thousand pleasure sailors here to enjoy its spectacular and world renown sailing waters,I have to point out that due to the industrialisation of these waters, those visitors will fast disappear. You refer to ‘a water corridor’ between mainland and islands, our marinas,our sailing grounds being so attractive, but soon you will have to use the past tense. Craobh Marina is threatened with massive turbines being built on the adjacent hills, Puilladobhrain,probably the most used and popular anchorage in Scotland, is close to having turbines immediately above. All of these will be seen for miles and miles offshore. And of course we have the biggest travesty possible – the Tiree Array – and it won’t stop there. The size of turbines being proposed now means there will be no hiding place as they spread further and further North. If you are not up to date on what is coming please take a look at this short video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taDs8ekhl08

    There are 25 million homes and therefore 25 million license holders in the UK. That can fairly be translated as 25 million ‘shareholders’ in a public company. As the subscribers they deserve to be informed with fair and balanced news which is not happening – see todays headline ! Incidentally did you see the report of a few days ago that BBC reporters are paid about 40% more than the reporters working for other news media i.e. Sky, ITV, Channel 4 etc. Now that would have made a interesting headline for consideration by the ‘shareholders’.

    Morning all ! As nothing else of interest is happening I’ll just mention something from yesterday which convinces me that the BBC is a real and threatening Political Party. One person out of the 60 million odd in this country voiced a personal opinion – not backed up by anything or anyone else – he said he thought Boris Johnston had not really wanted Brexit. I repeat – one person in over 60 million without any corroboration on any sort and yet the Biased Broadcasting Corporation made it their online national news headline for much of the day. It’s not that they attacked Boris necessarily, it’s their total arrogance that they think they could do this to anyone they don’t like, thereby politically influencing the opinions of the viewing and listening public.That’s not in their Charter !

    Most of the media this morning comment on the success of the UK economy post Brexit – even the Guardian ! What ‘eejit’ of a political leader would want to separate her group from such a successful organisation – only one trying desperately to keep her inferiority complexed ‘soldiers’ onside. For the sake of Scotland she knows there will be no further independence referendum but has to keep up the drip feed of pretence to stop her followers leaving to join the new hard left socialist Labour Party..
