Do Quangos support their aims?

Whilst the Scottish Government is so besotted with wind , can we expect the Public bodies such as SEPA and SNH to exercise the freedom to protect the people from their Political Masters. Certainly we have seen such as RSPB sitting on a very uncomfortable fence with local employees often horrified by proposals but the board being determinedly pro wind farms, no doubt coloured by RSPB’s own commercial involvement with renewables.
