Wind power is not safe  

On the eve of the last Assembly election, Plaid AM Helen Mary Jones personally assured me that if Plaid got into office they would impose a moratorium on wind power in Wales.As a result of this promise, I voted Plaid.

In January 2007 in Ireland, during high wind, a wind turbine blade broke off and smashed through the roof of a farmhouse with the family asleep inside.

Apparently, 11 defective wind turbines had been installed on farms in Northern Ireland.

In February 2008, a giant wind turbine in Denmark totally disintegrated, showering metal shrapnel up to half a mile.

In June 2008, a huge propeller blade broke off a wind turbine at Sheffield University in high wind with the M1 motorway and irate residents nearby.

The above is brutal, hard fact. Yet Plaid, now in Government, will go ahead with a massive build of these dangerous, useless wind turbines right across our beautiful Wales.
