23rd March SNP Conference at Eaton Court, Inverness.
Despite high winds and very low temperatures a good turnout of protesters assembled at the Castle and marched through Inverness to the Eden Court Theatre. A petition raised by
Wind Wise Radio in the US was to be presented to the Alex Salmond by the 93 yr widow of Tom Weir. Rhona Weir is a lovely lady and the total arrogance of the SNP leadership that refused to accept the petition of some 4400 people from some 45 countries who value Scotland’s scenery and landscape. The best they could offer was a meeting with Paul Whitehouse, the rural affairs Minister at a hotel in the Town. This was an insult on the belief of out of sight out of mind!
