Scottish Conservatives Euro Manifesto – Where do we stand now?

manifesto_highlandsJust to clarify, this is not a party political broadcast but simply identification of a Manifesto that contains an energy policy that does not support wind.

It is a great disappointment that Struan Stevenson, Conservative MEP for Scotland, has decided to stand down this election. One may question the validity of the one Euro MP for the Conservatives but SNP only have two, Labour two and Lib-Dems one.  Can you name any of the other MEPs? I couldn’t until I looked them up and frankly their last sojourn in Brussels and Strasburg has hardly rocked the boat. Apart of course for Struan who has managed to handle the two elements of Scottish Interest, Energy and fishing, in a most constructive way. Ian Duncan is his heir apparent but I wonder where we are going on the EU. Only today, a short time before the elections, Scottish Conservatives are launching their manifesto. On Energy, Stuan’s legacy lives on and we shall see, if Duncan is elected, whether his successor elect lives up to that.

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.
