Mr Bowles otherwise known as SR – you are becoming very like your boss in Edinburgh – when he is being bettered,like you,he also becomes offensive.

  • Never hide from the truth, Bob. The friend mentioned loves Scotland for all the reasons people / tourists have been coming here since Victorian times – for the clean air, wilderness, beauty, that ‘ get away from it all’ feeling. He is genuinely concerned about the future of our country. However, getting back to the theme of this forum, he also owns 2 large wind turbines ( on an industrial site ) which bring in a lot of money and helps to pay his bills in these stringent times. As a businessman he takes advantage of the system, as ever land owner can do legally, but at the same time he is totally mystified how anyone in their right mind could have come up with such a ridiculously expensive method of producing power!
  • Just met with a friend who does not get up here as often as he would like – anyway he was telling me that through the docks business he owns down south, he is importing more coal than ever before – from all over the world -seemingly it is fairly cheap at the moment! He also said that in some areas of England there are posters going up saying support Scottish Nationalism – send them back where they belong – our ‘Dear Leader’ Salmond has really made an impression. RIP. Hopefully those of us who don’t have an inferiority complex about being part of the UK will prevail.
  • If anyone is interested I have updated my website to include a page with the graph data for the 6 consecutive Sundays I have up to now been producing individually, using the detailed information taken from the Irish Grid website. The animation for the 8th April is on the Homepage. http://www.windfarms.me.uk/wind7.html
  • Tim – I have learned from the comments above and in the interests of avoiding any further misinterpretation I am now using individual arrows to show the position and number of turbines when illustrating a map. I have just finished one this morning for the Galloway area and it says all I want it to say which is ‘ how many turbines there are/ will be, and where – and what heinous subsidies they will get paid by all of us.
    Bill – To finish off a topic raised above when the need for wind farms was queried because Shetland already had a gas turbine producing 45% of its grid electricity,could you ask Mr Fox if indeed that still exists and was consideration given to expanding that, rather than pouring a further £1.2 billion of our money into investors pockets.
  • Mr MacKenzie – to what do you refer ?
