Is this Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow, the centre of Manchester or Soho? No it is outside MacDonalds in the Centre of Inverness. Sir Stephen House, Chief Constable of Police Scotland, considers this a proportionate response. What world does he and MacAskill live in or is this what Policing in Scotland post Referendum is going to be like. And for those not aware those read circles are identifying 17 shot Gloch automatics. A heavyweight automatic favoured by special forces and the more gung-ho police forces around the world. A Chief Constable that I once knew, who had tremendous respect from his force, once told me that the day officers routinely carried firearms on the streets of the UK, consensus police would end! This is a reflection of the SNP’s attitude to the people of this once proud nation. They have NO respect for the people which is demonstrated by their wind policy and their centralisation of both the Police and the Fire service. There was nothing here about cost saving. It is all about Control! On saturday night there were no less than five armed officers in Inverness, neither a large city or a den of iniquity. Sir Stephen insists the move is essential becuase the Highlands has 40,000 guns in private hands, Yes sporting rifles and shotguns used for game control by estates and farms and everyone licensed and kept separate from the ammunition in locked gun cabinets. Not sawn-offs and Uzzi machine pistols favoured by the criminal classes. I suspect that come re-licensing time we are all in for a difficult time justifying our need to a Strathclyde constable.

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."
