Will they or won’t they?

Build the wind farm, that is? “Insiders” claim the Scottish Government is going to turn down the proposal to build one of Europes largest wind farms in the Western Isles.

As the official decision’s not actually due for another two or three weeks, the SG seem to be a bit irritated by all the speculation, and have issued a very terse press release, basically telling everyone to calm down.

Why did I just get Michael Winners voice in my head there…”calm down, it’s a commercial”….
Yuck.

The evils of piping

Bagpiping, that is.

Apparently, they’re a threat to the environment, and not just the ears of those subjected to the often-horrifically-bad ones that pipe for the tourists on Princes Street!
Who would have thought that once banned symbols of Scottish pride would help decimate the forests of other nations!

Btw, I can highly recommend the Good Gifts site mentioned in the story, have used them for a few years, and they’ve always got a good present idea, especially the stocking fillers!
