Despite the Scottish Government boasting that its decision to overrule Scottish Borders Council and approve plans for 19 wind turbines in the Lammermuir Hills would create 100 construction jobs, I can’t help feeling that local democracy is being sacrificed in the name of green energy.

There are local fears that this area of natural beauty would be destroyed, a view held by the local council. It begs the question as to why the SNP government, on the one hand, is pouring millions of pounds into Visit-
Scotland and on the other is tarnishing areas of natural beauty that tourists come to Scotland to see.
