"Tories Off-Beam About Wind-Farm Development?"
Quote: ""Sword into Plowshares"! Is the cry. What if your agricultural equipment is dual-purpose and capable of both war-time and peace-time uses? It is long past time that the philosophy of "dual-purpose use" become adopted throughout the M.O.D.. Also whilst it is true that the M.O.D have been using and abusing all the British and British held territory it can get it's hand's on since it's inception the recent (still occluded), debacle over Vesta's off-shore wind-farm contracts represents one of the greatest abuses of their position (at least of our domestic territory and for the moment ignoring their relationship with all aspects of "Nuclear Power"*), in living memory. Why should this be the case? Without an inclusive guiding philosphy of "dual purpose usage" our military will remain an exclusive cabal which both alienates and is alienated from a large percentage of the population. It is as a direct result of this alienation that we have become capable of the idiocies of defence expenditure and procurement that we have witnessed recently.

Ed's Note: DEFRA has still not responded to my inquiries (reported verbatim on forum, go to http://medialens.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3021 ), concerning the relationship between the off-shore radar profile issue and the siting of wind-farms around the British coast. It seems they can penetrate into our lives, go to http://another-green-world.blogspot.com/2011/01/keep-your-truncheon-in-your-trousers.html but we cannot pentrate into theirs, go to
