Turbine explosion is down to SNP and its non-nuclear policy

Share this article

YET again, Henry Nixon has written to the Hawick News to express his anti-wind turbine stance. As the SNP government will not entertain nuclear, how does Mr Nixon see Scotland powering itself in the future? Renewables: water, wood, wind, hydro, water-cooled reactors (oil) have so far been muted. Oh yes, we could buy elecricity from France!

If Mr Nixon wants to blame anyone for the explosion of wind turbines in the Borders, he need look no further than Holyrood for its non-nuclear power policy.
