Comment posted A genius event to market Argyll and the Isles in the winter season by keith stanger.
Very interesting & certainly well worth a look. I must put the date on the calendar. Er, what is the date? Mid-September – do we assume that it’s the 15th/16th?

- SNP alerts infantry to prepare to hunt out Carmichael
The chances of the SNP persuading Parliament to suspend Carmichael for telling a lie months ago is surely zero. The negative behaviour of the SNP since May is hardly likely to attract support from anyone – particularly on a subject which is perceived as patently vindictive posturing.

“Dealing with these sorts of issue as ‘regulations’ rather than elements of legislation will see them subjected to a lower level and intensity of scrutiny which, in measures of this kind, is going to be troublesome.”
That’s how legislation works. The Bill introduces the Act which outlines the broad principles of control and allows the introduction of Regulations which control the detailed nitty-gritty. The advantage is that regulations can be introduced/amended/revoked without an Act of Parliament and all the procedure and time that entails. Whilst it is true Regulations do not normally attract the scrutiny of a Committee it doesn’t mean that they are not subject to scrutiny at all. An individual (or MSP for that matter) can subject the draft of Regulations to as much scrutiny as they like and comment accordingly. Whether the Government takes on board those comments however is a moot point.

The new turbines have about 3 times the rated power output and are a good bit taller as a consequence. I suspect the new ones will need a much larger foundation to cope and allow continued operation of the existing turbines whilst construction of the new ones is underway. I wonder if this is the first of many such projects and how it fits in with recent announcements about subsidies

Only if Scottish Ministers grant consent when he submits an application under Section 36 of the Electricity Act. SNP ministers ensuring Tory landowner is subsidised by shedloads of public money in a time of austerity. How ironic is that?
