The question that needs to answered. When are the people going to demand a stop to this stupidity.
The politicians are so carried away by this idiocy that they still insist that schemes such as that to erect 181 giant turbines on the island of Lewis, on which the Scottish Executive has the final say, have popular support. Yet Allan Wilson, Scotland’s Deputy Minister for Enterprise and Lifelong Learning, recently had to admit that, of 11,546 representations so far received by the Executive, only 59 were in support of the Lewis scheme, with 11,397 against.
The fact is that the Scottish people – as opposed to their politicians – are waking up to the realisation that wind power is one of the greatest hoaxes of our age. But, lest we feel insulated from the tragedy about to befall the Scots, we must recall that this is only a more extreme version of a collective self-deception which now has almost all our politicians in its grip.
