Comment posted Fife Council joins Aberdeenshire in asking for suspension of wind farm applications by Lowry.
Well, I’m in no position to decide that, but at least I could be relatively sure that the energy will be consistant and there when I need it.

- I have been to many communities near nuclear energy plants and was surprised to find that locals tended towards favouring their presence. This was because of the provision of employment as well as support for local businesses, schools etc. MIMBYism is not great. I don’t believe there is such support for windfarms.
- Whilst wind and nuclear energies may both require subsidising in some form or another, which one works best and which one can’t we do without?

Let’s face it, the Scottish Gvt. doesn’t want to invest in Argyll and Bute – period. Its focus is on the central belt and where its votes are – obviously not here!
The cheapest solution is the one they’ve chosen, which isn’t going to be the most cost-effective or sustainable in the long term but hey, do they care?

I read with interest the article in this week’s Oban Times where Alan Reid points out how some of the Scottish Gvt’s centralisation policies have resulted in a loss of jobs in Argyll and Bute and which, in turn, could also have an impact on population decline and the local economy.

Back to Jim Murphy: I’m delighted that he has decided to stand for the leadership position and declare that he will also stand as MSP in the 2016 elections.
Having watched his performance during the referendum campaign and (which has not been mentioned) the character of the man that was revealed at the terrible event of the Clutha Bar accident, I personally feel that he will be the best candidate for both Labour and Scotland.

Here we go, they’re getting into bed with the Tories. A right wing local authority looking after themselves and the wealthy to the detriment of the rest of us.
