Indeed the opinion of the English as as valid as the opinion of the Poles in Poland, which makes you wonder why the Scots get so upset and argue about it with teh English. Its other Scots who need persuading.
I'm not upset, just responding to an OP that finished with "oh joy.Does that mean we get to keep them?". Plus a wee smiley
I'm happy to promote independance, whether it's to us Scots, or the rest of the UK.
Yes, they already are.
The biggest investment in building the High Voltage DC transmission line to the south - and that will need to be paid for by the English, I thought it was already approved. Westminster already offers major tax incentives for wind power (much to the chagrin of most posters on this right wing forum). Whats stopping wind development is Scottish people objecting to it, not the tax regime.
Surely, the Western HVDC line is proposed to benefit England? I understand that generated power will be transmitted FROM, not TO, Hunterston? If we were an independent nation, then I could understand your point, but we're not. Hence, the UK
will subsidise this development.
I'm happy to say that you've strengthened the arguement for independance. All those loverly GBP's streaming in from our renewables!
As to tax incentives for renewable generation, they're available to the whole of the UK, and try telling Donald Trump that Scot's don't want wind farms
When Scotland gets independence I expect even more objections - 'spoiling our countryside to benefit the English'
When Scot's get independence, I expect most Scot's to step up to the plate and earn their place amongst the Worlds nations. Most of the NIMBY's I see on TV, especially in the isles, don't have Scottish accents. Guess which accent the have......
