Nearly doing what you said you would do is still a broken promise

The SNP nationally are struggling to live up to another pledge. This time to increase fourfold the support for renewable energy production.

They have increased the support by 3 times that of the previous administration but 3 is not 4 and whilst I welcome the increase its not what they said they would do. Yet again a promise broken.

Mind you, its not helped when their colleagues on the Council back down on the commitment of the previous Labour administration to make all 7 of the 8 news school heated by biomass boilers. They claim it was for health reasons but I believe that it was for financial ones and they were not smart enough to see it.

biomass -

you read the report to the Council.

would you have rather endagered children's lives?

I am surprised. I thought that you were smarter than that.

Can you name one other place where the same decision has been taken.?


We had 18 months to find a solution which comes down to the mix used in teh burning process. Well within the bounds of possibility. This decision was taken for other reasons, mostly about finance, and did not need to happen

Nice to hear from you again.
