Have i missed something, when did the Scottish Government gain control of offshore renewable energy contracts?

Yes, wind cannot sustain our energy requirements as it is inconsistent. Forget it and go for wave power or nuclear.

Everything else they do on land is a disaster, now off shore. I hope Nicola Sturgeon goes on her space program and gets stuck. She could rule there, then all our disasters would be over.

They are not Scottish waters, they are UK waters.

Brian, it is sad that you always seem to seek Scotland’s failure just to attack the Scottish Government. Pity your party was so pitiful when in power.

Power generation and supply in the UK is close to a sophisticated monopoly, with a virtual certainly of profits, and a guaranteed selling price – unlike many other industries. In return for that privilege energy companies should be required to share more with the host nation.

We’re so glad you’re always on Scotland’s side, Brian, what would we be without you?

Last Monday I looked at the wind generated electricity supplied to the grid.. it was 1 per cent; on Tuesday it had risen to 3.2 per cent.

Labor just have to back an Independent Scotland and they could be putting their ideas into action. What’s that Brian, you’d rather the Tories run the show from London! When was it you were last elected? Oh wow, 21 years ago.

Time for Rolls Royce mini nuclear reactors.

Always has been. If you are daft enough to think wind energy is going to keep the lights on, you’re the problem. Its lucky if you get 20 per cent if that and to say it’s green energy is a joke, as when the turbine blades are replaced they go to landfill.

Refugees present to Scottish councils as homeless after hosting arrangements collapse

The Nightingale buildings went up quick enough, only to be pulled down again. These would have helped this crisis. Build prefabs to get people off the streets. Stop paying hotels exorbitant amounts of taxpayers money while we are all suffering from hardships during these extraordinary times. Prefabs were good enough for wartime families of our own.

Not a surprise. We can’t sort our own homeless situation, so where did they think these people would live?

Welcome to Scotland! This is what happens when a gormless leader makes a statement in Parliament without researching what action would have to be taken to bring her promises into action.

If this is true it heaps shame on us all.

The English government was supposed to match them up to people who volunteered to take them in. Under the English scheme that took it out of the Scottish government’s hands. This is a failing of the English government and these people are going to the Scottish government to fix things.

Well, lovely to see the compassion of the Scottish people shine through! In case you haven’t noticed, these people have been forced to flee their homes due to a maniac forcing their way through their country – through no fault of their own! I highly doubt they would have left otherwise.
