Now I am a great one for Independence. Independence of the Highlands from the Central Belt and the SNP Government in Holyrood! However as to the United Kingdom I feel that separation is a road we don’t want to go down just now. A form of federalism maybe with more localism to local authorities but I see absolutely no point in Nationalism when half the Scots live in England and half of Scotland’s residents are English, Welsh or Irish. However consider that the Union Flag, not the Union Jack as the BBC wrongly attributed it, (The Union Jack is the flag flown on the jack-staff of Royal naval ships) contains as it’s background the Saltaire of Scotland. That is the thing about independence, too many things would need to be changed. I thought that you might like my take on the new Union Flag representative of England and Wales in the 21st Century. The New Scottish Flag? Salmond had to hock that to pay for his aspirations so China has got that now!

Wind V. Coal
Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
Sir Martin Holgate, Chief Scientist at the Department of the Environment of the British Government - October 2004
