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.

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
