MINISTERS were forced to admit they had not made any “green” improvements to their own buildings, (your report, 27 December).
In the past three years not one building on the Scottish Government’s 79-building estate has seen any improvement on its energy performance certificate.
Everyone knows ministers’ mantra is, “do not do as I do, do as I tell you”. They have repeatedly scolded property owners to be more “energy efficient” but the parliament building with its leaking design and repair problems and high energy use is a major emitter of carbon dioxide.They have told us to use our cars less and walk but they are chauffeured about in limos and taxis.
The SNP policy on allowing the erection of wind turbines in every nook and cranny has led to higher electricity prices, fuel poverty and people sitting shivering in inadequately heated houses.
SNP politicians choose to ignore such hardships and only see reductions in carbon dioxide emissions that go towards their boast of the “best renewables targets in the world”.
