The Scottish renewable sector can only thrive and deliver at its best when the motivation for developing this industry, the management of it and the method of its operation can be aligned. That will only be possible in an independent Scotland.

Scotland can be an energy powerhouse, but not within the Union. Scotland has to be independent to lead the way in renewable energy.

Needs a local Fat Controller it does.

Perhaps one of those who bankrupted their own shipyard trying to build their own damn ferry?

    How does that work then?

    Independent Scotland: We’ve got loads of renewable electricity, does anyone want some?

    Every other country apart from England: sorry chum, you’re too far away from us/we’ve already got loads.

    England: Can you send some when the wind isn’t blowing? Oh, you can only send it when the wind IS blowing? Sorry, not much use to us……we might take some off your hands if its dirt cheap at other times though…..PS when the wind isn’t blowing would you like to buy any of our nuclear/gas powered electricity? It is a bit dear tho……

    Independent Scotland: WTF are we going to do with all this electric we have no use for and is costing us a fortune?

  2. The grift is endless – my question is does he feel that his trashing of Sturgeon will ingratiate him with the SNP contenders to the extent they will provide him with a seat in the Lords to solve his financial problems? Seems a strange tactic to me!

    Well, English folks will drive to Gretna Green to recharge their EVs with lovely green renewable leccy.

    That would be the response from people with IQs greater than room temperature. Unfortunately, we have the politicians and civil servants we have, and the response is more likely to be “Great! We’ll buy it all! What’s your highest price?”

  5. “Great! We’ll buy it all! What’s your highest price? (we want to peel off the highest graft after all..)”

    Energy powerhouse, eh? In what other industrial and/or technological sectors has Scotland acquired “powerhouse” status? None, eh?

    My foremost memory of Scotland was staying at a very nice (and expensive) hotel in Edinburgh and still having to step around sleeping drunks to get across the lobby to the restaurant on Sunday morning. When I commented (sarcastically) to the staff about it, they seemed genuinely confused by the fact that I minded.

    And Tartan Wogs eat haggis. That alone should tell you everything you need to know about the Scots.

    Not to align myself with the “Wha’s like us?” mob or anything, but the west of Scotland is actually pretty strong in this new class of small satellites. Clyde Space in Glasgow is one of the biggest players in the field. There’s barely a Falcon 9 goes up that doesn’t have something built just down the road from me on it.

    One reason I know the Nats are full of shit is that they never talk about it; it’s always the bloody wind farms.

  8. “One reason I know the Nats are full of shit is that they never talk about it; it’s always the bloody wind farms.”

    But then, it’s not the economy is it, it’s always and only the virtue signalling. And the Anglophobia of course.

  9. Not sure about the trashing of Sturgeon is such a good idea given the way the party seems controlled by a small group, the tag of ‘continuity candidate’ in this case was just a polite way for saying sock puppet

  10. “Well, English folks will drive to Gretna Green to recharge their EVs with lovely green renewable leccy”

    Given the poor range of EV’s that’s not likely to be much use. Even assuming us “English folks” made it over the border, and were prepared to wait ages while re-charging, we’d use most of it up just getting back home!

    “PS when the wind isn’t blowing would you like to buy any of our nuclear/gas powered electricity? It is a bit dear tho……”

    That would be good to see – it might (finally) get through the thick heads of “Renewables” proponents that cheap power is of no use if it’s not available when you want it…

    You probably wouldn’t know it from reading MSM, but the UK is huge (relative to its geographical and financial size) in satellite technology. SSTL in Guildford and Airbus in Stevenage build a lot of space stuff, which is where the profitable part of space exploration is – launchers are generally a money pit, though Musk and Bezos may change that, in time.

  12. If Scotland goes independent they will the the Canada to England’s USA – always defining themselves ‘not like the English’.

    It’s bad for Canada and it will be bad for them.

  13. ‘they will the the Canada to England’s USA’

    Does this apply to Southern Ireland Agammamon?
