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.

db – if you scroll through the Machmaolain’s posts since it first surfaced on this blog it’s pretty clear that the main aim is to foment intolerance, but the trouble is that the intemperate ranting is so much like an off-colour music hall comedy routine – or Alf Garnett wearing a bonnet – that it’ll probably do the Scottish cause more harm than good.

I think that you speak with considerable ignorance – or is it just obtuseness? – and, for the good of your education, in the past a truck that had stopped at Butterbridge was knocked off the road, so sometimes it doesn’t matter how slow the vehicle is travelling, it can still come to grief.

What I don’t understand is how a 13 year old child’s interview at school (by someone who apparently wasn’t even known to her) is then apparently legally confidential and not to be divulged to her mother – who is surely legally responsible for her 13 year old child and bound to be concerned as to what’s going on.
Perhaps the answer is to accept that all children, upon reaching school age, should be removed from the care of unpredictable, uncontrollable parents and brought up by the state – thereby ensuring that they conform to all required norms and become model citizens.
It’s a Brave New World, isn’t it?
