Kenneth Gibson MSP
THE much criticised plans for a so-called carbon capture power station at Hunterston have been dropped by Ayrshire Power .
The very surprising move by the company, set up by Peel Holdings, was welcomed by local SNP MSP Kenneth Gibson who has been saying for more than a year that the project was "dead in the water."
Ayrshire Power admitted that they faced economic difficulties and time constraints in trying to get permission for the £2-3b plant.

Thank God we will no longer have to listen to the cringe worthy objections made by the local anti coal brigade.
1. We dont want coal stock piled on our door step regardless of the fact it has been stock piled there for the last 30 odd year by the millions of tonnes.
2. Will the public enquiry examine the human rights of those who dig the coal abroad?
I assume now that the power station is doomed then the campaign to address the above 2 issues will be carried on as they remain very much on your door step.
I think we all know the answer to that one but hopefully we can now obliterate the Largs skyline with lovely efficient wind turbines to rival Eaglesham and harness all that Atlantic wind!
