Lord Duncan (right) was previously (truly) elected as Scotland’s sole Tory Euro-MP until the array of talent from the actually-elected new Scottish Tory MPs forced him to be en-nobled by Prime Minister May to qualify for this new job.
Duncan actually has some knowledge of the energy sector and previously worked for a Big Oil company. So:
Is 75,000 the number of new jobs he’s created in the N. Sea oil and gas industry?
Is 75,000 the number of new BPVs (battery powered vehicles) will be built in Scotland?
Is 75,000 the number of new wind farms the government will approve in Scotland?
Is this the price per/MWh which the Tories will pay for nuclear electricity from Hinkley Point?
Or is Lord Duncan simply just helping those lottery-winners hand over another £75,000 to the SNP?
Actually, it is the number of people who have visited the exhibition this year at Pitlochry dam – which is about the only thing even remotely connected to hydro-power which has been built by the Perth-based utility SSE since ‘the hydro board’ was privatised 30 years ago…
