One casualty of the SNP future could be Freedom of Speech

Churchill quote

Both Policies of the First Minister and the SNP government on Wind and the Referendum have split Scotland apart. I won’t say in two as the percentages are certainly not 50/50. However, more and more we find that freedom of speech is seriously eroded. Even the anti wind side of the argument has to consider our position. With the wind industry famous for lies and dis-information we sometimes forget that supporters of wind have an opinion too. We may disagree but they do have a right to voice them. We can then enter into debate. However dishonesty breeds a situation where these freedoms come under attack. Debate becomes debased into a shouting match. One might suggest that the Farage/Clegg debate exemplifies this with Farage debating and Clegg spinning sound bites and challenging Farage’s h0nesty. That is modern politics and not deabte and the resulting opinion polls aptly describe which we prefer.  The casualty in the end is the honest man!

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.
