Comment posted Pilots concerned on wind farm generated air turbulence by Robert Wakeham.
Just spotted your invitation to comment, Halcolh, and I’m too polite to refuse. The times I’ve criticised you it’s because I’ve been quite sure that your pronouncements were half-baked, and it’s rather worrying that you really do seem to believe you speak with great authority, and when others pick holes in what you’e said you sometimes resort to the sort of rudeness that’s really rather childish. Over to you, SR.

- Perhaps what we need is a well informed and diligent anti-bullshit activist – I recollect there used to be one, a good one, but he seems to have bailed out in exasperation but maybe one day he’ll be back…
- I don’t think that your comment is much use, Malcolm, as he seems to be comparing just Australia’s ‘man made’ contribution to world Co2 production with the whole lot – and while this is seemingly intended to reassure a small and reportedly very co2 profligate population in a big country, it’s not representative of the world picture.
You might say that we in Scotland / Britain aren’t, either, but it’s the overall world picture that counts, it’s the whole world that sinks or swims depending on how the population behaves, and nether we nor the Australians can really afford to play the ‘we’re too small to count’ game.
- In recent years it seems to have got easier to build a house in the ‘countryside’ – in Argyll at least, although it does help if you’re building on the site of a previous dwelling.
- No Bill – there’s been quite a lot of intolerance amongst a few commentators on the Dunoon ferry saga on the the views of others, and I don’t apologise for arguing my corner in the face of boorishness.
- I’m not getting involved in the discussion of figures – that’s for yourselves to scratch your heads over – but surely the statement that ‘…the average temperature of the UK has risen and electricity consumption dropped 3% last year..’ might be misleading because – though I’m not a global warming denier – it depends when the year was measured, as we’d just come out of the second of two much colder than usual winters, and our relatively badly insulated houses are one of the biggest energy users.

- New flybe strategy clear – Edinburgh and Inverness to benefit
My only experience of London City was unfortunate, when I thought I’d be clever by connecting out of Schipol into London City (much nearer my destination) rather than Heathrow. However, it took a four hour wait at Schipol for Thames estuary fog to clear, whereas none of the other London airports was affected. Makes me wonder whether Boris’s scheme for a new mega airport on the Thames estuary is more than a little bonkers.

‘…with a face like a bulldog….’ – an unfortunate description, given that everyone knows that bulldogs are British, whereas MacAskill is presumably convinced that he’s not British.

I thought Salmond had crossed the frontier to foment revolt among the border people down in Carlisle. The English should beware of little green men in kilts.
