Why so silent on turbines?

It was completely predictable there would be a furore in London-based media over proposals for a mere four 300ft wind turbines on the Yorkshire Moors above Haworth in Bronte Country.

I have been saying for years the people of England would not accept the scarring of England.

However, the English media have never said a word about the far, far worse desecration of Wales.

They have allowed it to happen. Why? Because they don’t care about Wales and because the sporadic, often trivial, electricity generated in Wales is being taken by pylon line to supply England.

Not a word was written against the massive 103 wind turbines in a single site above Llandinam, Montgomeryshire, in the 1990s.

Not a word is said against at least 70 wind turbines, a gigantic 400 ft, proposed for beautiful Nant y Moch, Pumlumon. The further proposed 800, up to 475 ft planned for Montgomeryshire, would cause apoplexy in the English media, if England were to receive them. Can you even imagine 800 giants, almost as high as Blackpool Tower?

We are clearly on our own in Wales, fighting the ruination of our beautiful little country to supply England with renewable electricity.

Yet where are our Welsh patriots? Where are our supposed leaders in the Welsh Assembly ?

They are the architects of the destruction of Wales! We don’t need enemies in the English media and Parliament while we have plenty of “enemies within” in Cardiff.
