Comment posted Quarrying at Glensanda: aggregating aggregates by Robert Wakeham.
Would make a good set for the next James Bond movie, but ideally the baddies would disappear into the mincing machine and that would be best achieved as the ship is unloaded and the cargo sinks into the hoppers at the base of the hold.

- Surely the difference with the wind industry is that it’s creeping over the surface of the country – and the surrounding seas – like some contagion that risks getting out of control, whereas Glensanda is an admittedly very large scale operation but in a carefully chosen area of a landscape big enough to contain it. Yes, it can be surprisingly visible – for example from the road through Glen Nant, 20 miles away – but it’s surely not the ‘total destruction of a huge swathe of countryside’, and it does have a certain grandeur in its sheer scale.

- Crown Prosecution wrong on Janner: evidence against him must be heard in public
According to the BBC news Lord Janner’s family have described him as entirely innocent of any wrongdoing – so, in my mind at least, painting all the alleged victims (who’ve provided enough evidence to enable the CPS to charge him with twenty two counts of wrongdoing) as liars. I wonder just who the liars are – and (quite apart from someone ‘leaning’ on the Leicestershire police in the past) I can’t help remembering the case of Ernest Saunders (one of the ‘Guinness Four’) who was released from prison after being diagnosed with incurable Alzheimer’s Disease, only to make a miraculous recovery and resume his business career.
