Plans are afoot to build many hundreds of 400 foot wind turbines in the Solway Firth between England and Scotland. Please look at my photos for a minute and remember a time when Cumbria had one last asset left that made visiting Cumbria worthwhile..Its beautiful views and scenery.
Scottish coastline on the far right horizon. Soon to be obscured by 400 foot wind turbines..Whitehaven in the foreground.. God help us all!
Cher looking West on South Shore Whitehaven. Sunset - Friday the 13th of August 2004
August evening - Imagine 400 foot wind turbines on this horizon.
My wife Cheryl and I spend as much time as we can enjoying sunsets from our Western coastline. Looking out to sea, where we can watch the sun set over the Scottish coastline, across the Solway Firth. The view is spectacular. Certainly worth visiting the ancient port of Whitehaven for..for the time being that is..Plans are afoot to build many hundreds of 400 foot wind turbines in the Solway Firth between England and Scotland. I feel distraught about this plan. I am in my fifties now so I know that I will soon never be able to look at the view I'll attach, without the visual clutter of the monstrous 'whump whumps' - ( the horrible sound they make of the giant wind turbines) certainly not in my remaining lifetime.Blair has managed to wipe out Cumbrian Industry..The world wide brand name of hat manufacturers, Kangol of Cleator, for instance, has long gone to far off China (It's a Global economy now you know! - Stuff the little town of Cleator).Our farming industry has been decimated, many farmers have left their farms for good. That brilliant intellectual Prescott tells us that we needn't pay British Farmers prices when we can buy cheaper foodstuffs abroad.. (the numbscull).. We are living in the past for having that point of view! He says!Blair has created a whole new culture based on lies and deceit.. Some youngsters will grow up thinking there was never a time when truth prevailed.. When families were considered (with mums and dads) and vows were made - to love one another till death do us part. Old fashioned stuff I know, but on the whole, it kept our society together..So please look at my photos for a minute and remember a time when Cumbria had one last asset left that made visiting Cumbria worthwhile..Its beautiful views and scenery. Lets not give thanks to that reptilian lounge lizard Blair for wanting to destroy our last asset.. Our beautiful views..Try and imagine a million cries of seabirds falling to water with broken necks . More victims of Blairs folly. His pie in the sky ideas - like Iraq. That he could change the world for the better and that, as some say, he is of Churchillian stature. What fools those people are to say such daft things...Others like myself know the truth..We'll have to keep our views a secret because Blair may soon make any criticism of himself unlawful..
Because our area, West Cumbria and the Lakes, is a low population density area we probably have less peoples to fight the injustice that is about to befall us. We have so much to lose, visually.
Allonby is a lovely little village quite near to Silloth and is a very popular tourist area. The coastal views across the Solway Firth to Scotland are superb.. So what does a large Danish combine want to do to this section of coastline..? Build monster wind turbines along this length of coastline of course.. As well as in the middle of the Solway Firth. The Solway Firth is home to millions of seabirds. I dare not image the carnage that is about to happen to these poor creatures.
