Newsroom – I am continually in awe of your ability to research and assimilate information and reissue it in such a clear and explicit manner.

- You have confirmed what I suggested above ie it may be that all sides can get something out of it. Been busy all day so have not actually read it in full but am happy to accept your summary. Cheers !
- Have not had time to go through this in any detail but it is at least up to date – it maybe that all sides can get something out of it :-
- Could you put a few £££ signs in your post Tim so that we can get an idea of the cost of upgrading the Grid over and above the £475 million per annum that wind farms are costing us at the moment. The amounts must be available on the net somewhere. Thanks.
- Don’t totally agree there Karl – you and I and all the other ‘extremists’ have posted a lot of good/bad stuff on these forums over many months – I think ‘newsroom’ has been following it all, and as a professional journalist, has issued a clear resume above of current issues, and hopefully there will be more in the future. It’s the ease of reading that makes any article stand out.

Yes – my son has played there and says is pretty darned good. Got a hole in one at his local last week ! ! However – hate to bring actual experience yet again to the hypotheticals on FA, but as a seaside resident of East Lothian for many decades I can assure Lowry and others that there are no bits of land on the Earth that get moved about more that coastal sand dunes, and yet they always survive. Bye the bye – it was the local authority employees who were so hard on the householders who didn’t want to move – not the Trump organisation.

Lowry – What was wrong with the Community charge – it simply meant that a single person paid less than a family – seems reasonable ! The disgraceful violent hate filled scenes were caused by Old Labour, the left wing Unions, and the active Communist Party of the time, who saw it as a chance to bring down the Government. As far as good old Council Housing was concerned it gave people choice. There were plenty excellent new Council Housing schemes round our way giving people a new home at a reasonable rent. I also knew people who bought their Council houses – the few that did, never caused a shortage for others. So that’s a bit of nonsense I’m afraid. Incidentally I been asked to convert a video presentation made to the Rural Parliament in Oban recently for uploading to Youtube. Stuart Young starts off with chastising Mrs T for selling the Energy Companies so should be of interest to you – I’ll post the video address here when it’s ready.
