Nothing but bills from wind farm 

Credit:  Readers' Letters | The Courier | September 21 2020 | www.thecourier.co.uk ~~

When Scots voted for the SNP they thought they were voting for a nationalist party that would put jobs and Scots first.

It seems we have a party flying false colours.

Once again work is going abroad (‘Anger as BiFab misses out on wind farm work’, Courier, September 19).

This time it is the steel work for the wind farm off the Fife coast.

It will be built in China, as was the steel work for the new Forth Bridge.

Yet we have BiFab sitting on our doorstep with a third yard in Stornoway.

We also have many more places where the work could be fabricated in Scotland.

Every piece of steel, every nut, bolt, electric cable and the ships needed to transport them will be paid for ultimately by the Scottish public.

As I have said before, these foreign companies should have been told when they wanted to milk Scotland’s wind sector that they have to build here or go elsewhere.

There is nothing in this wind farm for us but bills.

How many more times are we to be ripped off by foreign companies aided by four political parties who care nothing for working people?

How many more times are excuses to be made why they could not be built here?

John G Phimister.

St Clair Street,
