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.

    Nice to get a chance to tell you are so so wrong yet again – I don’t read the Express or any other of the ‘gossip sheets’ like ‘The National. The story came from reliable sources. Good to hear JB confirm that virtually all the SNP MPs are using the gravy train at our expense. According to the BBC this afternoon I see one them has been charged with fraud. Could be applied to that lot at Holyrood as well.

    What work Robert ? She is not a business executive working on an interview or sales presentation in London or Glasgow, who needs to concentrate and prepare. She has accommodation in London which must be much more conducive to work in than an aircraft on a fairly short flight, and if she is not out playing down there then she should have plenty time to get on with whatever work she has to attend to. Actually I don’t really care what her excuse is – she should not be milking the system.

    Did you see this headline :- “Woman of the people ‘Mhairi Black’ claimed £13,350 for 39 Business Class flights to and from London “

    There are 25 million homes and therefore 25 million license holders in the UK. That can fairly be translated as 25 million ‘shareholders’ in a public company. As the subscribers they deserve to be informed with fair and balanced news which is not happening – see todays headline ! Incidentally did you see the report of a few days ago that BBC reporters are paid about 40% more than the reporters working for other news media i.e. Sky, ITV, Channel 4 etc. Now that would have made a interesting headline for consideration by the ‘shareholders’.
