Eishken - I

On Kintyre there are two large windfarms, both clearly visible from the sea, but not in my opinion eye-sores. I don't know anything about the local politics and economics of these farms but consider it good that someone had achieved something. Surely the best response to wind farm proposals is constructive negotiations with the locals backed by their politicians. And if the politicians do try to sell the family silver (rare I do think among indigenous peoples) then make it clear they will be out of a job after the next election. Or is my view of democracy at work altogether too naive?
