I want to complain about this content:

  • Where are the messages of support from the protectors and arbiters of the countryside? all these unsightly pylons? tut tut. Off course its the right decision, because large studies have shown that it beneficial to our health to decrease the HVP radiation, as it links to leukaemia, according to a huge Swedish study on exactly this very subject. Sweden digs in its power cables it shields so much better. Further, maintenance crews say they are easier to maintain as they are underground, not high up in the air. With so many of the North sea operators being foreign, maybe we should introduce a 'network levy' designed to help and finance these vital distribution networks, they, as operators, are in receipt of state subsidies and should provide a substantial part of our future offshore network, whether its from wind farms or sea current generators, they benefit from being connected. We also should have another look at the safeguarding of our estuaries and the agricultural hinterland, starting with the wash. A tidal barrier and lock system could dispense with two nuclear power stations and safeguard the Fenland's from flash floods and salt water inundation, they supply one fifth of our national fresh food supplies. With chaotic weather patterns this would not only be a good national employment project to support but also make sense, sacre bleu. The Wash will not seize to be an attraction to birds, its salinity will go down slightly and 150 ships per year can still go in and out, but Norfolk and Lincolnshire could cooperate and change the net capacity with a massive tidal energy project, less dependency of French nuclear power and Russian gas, and a thumbs up to a plethora of local enterprises, good for the local economy, all this just screams at us 'yes please'..... Just sayin'
