Comment posted on Another part of the cost of the A83 closure by Malcolm Kirk

Having spent much of the last twelve months collecting and collating information on wind farms and working with others, some of whom are professional consultants,I can assure you the figures quoted above are pound perfect. However I leave it up to others to judge the quality of our respective posts.

  • Robert – Here’s one I made earlier
    Doc and anyone still following this – Please read the Express Article – says it all really
    The Guardian deliberately misconstrued the evidence in that piece – patience – all will be revealed when I come back.
    How much renewable energy would I accept at the present rip off costs – NIL.
    I love the way you and SR keep implying I am being obsessive – no – just trying to work with honest decent people to establish fair play for the consumers in this country.
  • There is no subsidy given to fossil fuelled Power Stations.
    Which bits have SR and you been avoiding – where do we start :-
    Allt Dearg / Ardrishaig / gravy train / excessive subsidy income / exorbitant electricity costs / up to 9 times in some cases / massive massive guaranteed profits / ridiculous 20 year contracts / ever increasing household bills / community bribes / virtually nothing manufactured in this country / our money paid straight out to people abroad / actual jobs -mainly Spanish hot air / questionable man made global warming / NETA graphs proving the uselessness of wind power / July figures pathetic / present daily subsidy £27.4 million whether they generate or not / who else gets paid millions for not working / billion pound subsidies to be quadrupled/there is probably more !
    You have 45 lines in which to match my suggested topics with answers. And please don’t say you are too busy – you appear on all these Forums all too often for anyone to believe that.
    I am not a subscriber to the Daily Express but I have just been sent todays headline ” Energy bills to rocket by £300 pounds.
    Now I must go – all Ireland awaits !!!!

  • Almost forgot:-
  • Morning ! You will be sad to learn that I am off later on a round Ireland trip in a 36 foot diesel guzzling 42 knot Red Bay fast RIB. OOOh Nooo I here you cry – yep – afraid so.
    Doc – I am worried about SR – he has been much quieter and less abusive than I am used to – do you think he is OK or are my well reasoned arguments finally getting through to him ?
    You, yourself, were asked and asked to give the contrary proposition to my mini thesis posted above as No 2 – that you have patently avoided doing so will be obvious to everyone following this Forum. You also failed to condemn Wind Farm operators who demand £800 from the National Grid for £55 of supposed losses – nothing to do with balancing – just sheer unadulterated greed.
    You will no doubt come up with some supposedly clever retort but I really think we can all see through you by now.
    Robert – I’ll let you get back to abusing the ‘Ferryman’ and saving up your pennies for your tunnel under the Clyde.
    Remember – keep a good sense of humour about you at all times !
  • Welcome back – you are nearer the truth than you think – Yes I have owned sailing boats since my teens – yes I was a Royal Yachting Offshore Instructor for twenty years – yes we had our own Sail Making business – yes my sons were two of Scotland’s top sailors – yes I am getting on a bit and yes my beard is fairly white. Does that make you feel good ? ( PS – I have also heard all the StarTreck jokes )
    However back to reality – if you were incompetent enough to allow your diesel tank to run dry so you were left floating around offshore with no means of propulsion then you would soon find other things were beginning to run out as well for example water / food / your crew’s sanity. You can live in your dreamworld lassie of always being supported by others who work their socks off, if you want – but in the yachting analogy I would make sure that until you thought things through properly and took proper responsibility for your actions, you would never go to sea with a crew gain.
    My Occupation – work 6 till 6 – walk two splendid dogs – build and fly radio controlled model aircraft – presently fitting out an old Cadet sailing dinghy for one of the kids at the local sailing club – make anti wind turbine videos and post to youtube – work on two thirds of an acre of garden with greenhouse etc – do as my wife asks (joke) etc etc. Check out achnandarrach youtube or:-

    I don’t withdraw ‘ shear arrogance’ Robert. When the people at ForArgyll actively encouraged so many members of the public to join in open debate online, you don’t just close it down virtually without explanation, and yes, without an Editor it is closed down. Whether there is some advertising income from the little that still exists could be the reason it has not shut totally. The attitude reminds me of a landowner who treats his tenants in the same manner – “Its mine, all mine,so I will do as I want – you don’t matter”.
    PS. Was there any public money subsidising ForArgyll ?
  • ForArgyll on Pause
    Wouldn’t we all Bob. To me it was shear arrogance for all those involved in producing ForArgyll to walk out without a full explanation to those of us who had contributed to making it what it was over the years.

    Just been revealed that 8 of the top ten travel expenses claims, have been from SNP MPs – and Mhairi Black is not even one of them this time with her £350 single flight costs from London City Airport. These 8 have cost £239,366 MORE, repeat MORE, than the MPs who held the seat before them. These are the people ScotsRenewables touches his forelock to. Come back LINDA – we desperately need your input again.

    Is this site being kept alive so that Charles can get some income from the adverts ? ?

    I wonder how many SNP MSPs there would be if the thumbs up/thumbs down figures applied to Salmon’s posts were reflected at Holyrood. The figures of course posted by real people not the SNP drones who have filled the top half of this page as instructed by their desperate mistress Sturgeon.
