For The Birds

A wind turbine has destroyed a White-throated Needletail.

The last General Election was a contest between a Government not yet quite politically able to commit itself to coal again (although it would have done so by now, if it had still been in office), but fully committed to nuclear power, and an Opposition which instead wanted to pay its relatives and other financial backers shed loads of public money in order to have wind turbines on their land rather than anything that might employ any of the common people.

The next General Election will be a contest between an Opposition fully committed both to coal and to nuclear power, and a Government which is instead paying its relatives and other financial backers shed loads of public money in order to have wind turbines on their land rather than anything that might employ any of the common people.

To those who answer that this incident occurred in Scotland, it applies there, too, and the case for coal and nuclear power is as much a case for the Union now as it was in the 1970s.
