Comment posted Major environmental groups seriously compromised by wind developers’ cash by Grant MacDonald.
Wow. Lots of people posting on this.
My personal stance is I’m wholly in favour of renewable energy and wholly dismissive of wind turbines as a viable entity. They are simply a ‘get rich quick’ scheme where mugs will suffer as they rely on our country being ‘lucky’ with the weather.
Since when has Scotland been lucky with the weather? When it’s properly cold in winter and people die, the wind ain’t blowing.

- I’m perhaps a bit ironic on the subject of windfarm nonsense but it does come down to a basic Scottish saying.
“You were lucky with the weather”
By debasing our nations future on ‘luck’… you couldn’t make it up!
No sane person would fuel their car just a little bit and hope the journey was mostly down hill. Except those who accept funding from windmill snake oil salesmen.

- An independent Scotland and the pound
Perhaps not entirely germane to the issue but worthy of a moments ponder regarding National Debt and the banking crisis. The recent report naming the culprits behind the Bank of Scotland disaster was interesting, especially if one views the CV of the folk involved. For some reason, every single one of them were from Halifax Building Society, tending to suggest the merger was actually a complete takeover as none of the senior management actually had bank experience!
Makes me wonder who the RBS bloke who’s been demonized was listening to?
- Struan Lodge closure proposal and costs confusion – have we not seen this before?
I notice Cowal Courier is run by an ex-News International employee. It makes me pause for thought for some reason but I do understand why Simon would cite it.

In the history of FA, I’ve rarely read so much tripe from usually sensible posters. “Rules of Engagement” equates to please unload your weapons and replace the missiles with blue practice loads. It was a war and the object is to win. Nothing else counts. As soon as someone stops talking and starts shooting, there is only one aim. To win.
Secondly, had Maggie supported our coal industry in the 1980′s would it have survived against cheap imports which continue until this day?
The answer is obviously no.
Our steel industry was paramount and should have been defended. After all, it wasn’t the case cheaper steel was going to be available within 10 years. Except it was and by the time it happened, the UK steel industry was closed down with the people involved either re-skilled or in the trash bin as they would never have retrained.
The woman did a heck of a lot wrong but the big picture tends to suggest she’d only one thing in mind and that was our country’s future.
Importantly, she never once mentioned Wind Farms as part of that future which is the sort of rubbish people will eventually write.
But she did view the big picture which is something not a single politician seems capable of doing at present, resulting in record low voting numbers.

Pity you didn’t notice the fact Newsroom had updated their piece 2 hours and 19 minutes before your latest input of spiteful drivel.
Slimey strikes again…

In fairness, the best I’ve managed was 46 minutes from the Airport. But it involved a quiet motorway and catching the last ferry by the skin of my teeth.
Once – a very long time ago – did Campbeltown in 2 hours from Glasgow in a sorted Lotus Elan. Dunno if that counts.
There’s a Christmas challenge to all those who post behind a non d’plume?
