Invest £4 million in Scotland’s Tourism and is this how they repay you?

eagles brae

A local landowner has invested £4 million in a number of eco chalets (Eagle Brae) and is now faced with this horror of horrors right in front of his investment. The SNP party talk about investing in Scotland, oblivious to the fact that wind farms invest in German or Danish equipment and engineers, pay often absentee landowners vast sums of money and load us with the cost of this expensive unreliable energy. It is of no satisfaction that one translation of ‘carach’, the invented name of this wind farm, is “un-reliable”. The fact is that contra to the doctrine of wind developers ‘investing’ in Scotland(raping it is more accurate), the  truth is that many tourism operators such as Eagle Brae will not invest in Scotland and more importantly will not bring the much needed jobs to the Highlands if they are not protected from such a damaging proposal. Scottish Tourism currently employs 250,000 and generates £40 billion in income. Rather different to the 2,000 employees in the wind industry and the very negative cash flow they “generate”. After all for every £1 of energy sold over the border the vast majority will disappear abroad to service the debt, to line the pockets of the developers or to the off-shore banks of the landowners. The 1 or 2p of community benefit will have simply been skimmed from the subsidies we pay. Suggestions have been voiced that strike prices will in future be paid from taxes instead of subsidies, much vaunted by the EU. Are we that stupid? Who pay the TAXES? We do! Nothing will change but it will be like handing you back your change whilst the DECC have their hand in your wallet!

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.

    Insanity rules at Holyrood. No-one who would visit Eagle Brae would want a view of that monstrosity. This wind farm will be stopped – it has to be.

    Reblogged this on Cornwall Wind Watch and commented:
    oh but that looks lovely, and tourists love wind farms and they aren’t noisy and the local bird population must be booming and I’m sure they’re scoping this sight for a historic film location shoot, game of thrones maybe…..oh no wait, I see the sarcasm tab is on on the the pc. Sorry what a mess., good luck in your battles.

    Maybe they should discus their strategies with Donald Trump. He is in the same boat, with his golf course. It is not safe to invest in any country that has been taken in by the wind scam….
