Waste of taxpayers’ money?  

Credit:  Shetland News | 05 October 2013 | www.shetnews.co.uk ~~

Your article “Viking confident” (S/N 4/10/13) quotes a Viking spokesman:

“We will continue taking the appropriate steps on this project to maintain our positive momentum and we remain committed to what we believe is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring the many economic and environmental benefits of the renewable energy industry to Shetland.”

Does this mean Viking are continuing to make inroads into the £6.3 million they were given by Shetland Charitable Trust without detailing what it would be used for?

Notwithstanding that Lady Calton has quashed the Scottish Government’s gung-ho, rail-roading award of planning permission for the project in the Court of Session, pending appeal?

Why is the Scottish Government appealing the judgement?

Surely Lady Calton is capable of deciding whether or not developers are required to hold a licence to generate electricity before being granted planning permission to build wind farms?

If Lady Calton is right the appeal would seem a glorious waste of taxpayers’ money.

If Lady Calton is wrong it would beg the question “Why is she a judge, it took her long enough to make up her mind yet she still got it wrong?”
