To all our fantastic SAS supporters: Happy Xmas! from the team at SAS.
With Xmas upon us once more, we bring you a round up of all the latest news to hit the headlines over the past six weeks, including our visit to the SNP conference, the Smith Commission outcome, and the new, emerging picture of the world energy markets.
Our thanks to Iain Green for his wonderful Xmas cartoons, and also to a few very special individuals who have selflessly campaigned against turbines and in the process provided much support and assistance to us all; Angela Kelly of Country Guardian, Gillian Bishop and Dave Bruce of Views of Scotland, Andrew Joicey and all at Sustainable Shetland. We wish the latter all the very best at the Supreme Court later this week and hope that Santa brings them, and us all, a much-deserved Xmas present this year!
