Turbine down - one goes on fire


How often have you wanted to see this Mr Sloman? All turbines had been turned off because of storm force winds. Sensible policy Mr Salmond's pursuing then. Houses had to be evacuated after the turbine brake system failed and the blades 'free-wheeled'. It appears the turbine couldn't cope with gusts of 50mph.

  2. Too much wind and they don't work!
    Too little wind and they don't work!
    Too much power in the grid, they're switched off, and the owners massive compensation payments!
    They devastate our wild life.
    They ruin our wild places.
    They’re causing energy prices to soar.

    Which idiots supported the building of these monstrosities!!!!

    Please stand up everyone named Salmond and Hulme. Grrrr!!

  5. Looks to me like the holding-down bolts have failed. I seem to have mislaid my monkey wrench...

  6. Hi Gibson,

    I just can't shake this mental image I've got of you standing nearby saying "Hey Lynne, this grenade launcher gadget is really good"

  7. Could this be the reason behind Gibson's liking hoods on his jackets?

    He's a hoodie terrorist and the security cameras can't see who it is that launched the grenade..

  9. Alan - it's the SAS training that comes in handy, though hoods have a part to play!
