Murdo Fraser chairs the SNP dominated Committee for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism and is well known for his no nonsense approach to wind energy.However, even as Chairman, he is impotent to sway the Scottish Ministers from their Road to Ruin. On relevant topics from Bannockburn to Wind Farms he has been willing to challenge the Government. This article is very interesting as it encompasses many of our demands such as a Moratorium. Does it reflect the future direction of the Country post a pro Union vote. That remains to be seen. I think it a great shame that Ruth Davidson was voted Party Leader at Holyrood as I am sure Murdo would have proved a fire brand that might have lit the Bonfire of Vanities of the First Minister instead of the ineffective squib we presently have. Annabelle Golding was a force that the SNP feared despite the minority status of the Conservatives in Scotland. With the future seemingly a see-saw of Labour/SNP politics with the Lib-Dems sinking without trace, we really need to consider that the time has come to bury the Thatcher legacy and perhaps consider Murdo’s suggestion at the leadership elections that Scotland needs a new right of centre party along the lines of the old Conservative and Unionist Party, without the baggage of Scottish Conservatives. I am not suggesting that they will rise to power but they could provide a more effective opposition than at present. We need a conservative party that reflects Scottish issues and does not genuflect to the Westminster cabal.

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."
