"I do not think Scotland has always been 'excluded" from NP though."
Quite so. Four out of the existing nineteen UK nuclear power stations (whether in or out of operation)are in Scotland. Hence Scotland has its share of nuclear power - not to mention being the base for the UK's nuclear fleet. The current Scottish SNP govt don't believe in further nuclear power. That govt could be out of office at the next election or they could be forced to accept some policies they are against in the form of a coalition. That is democracy. The SNP would be about the last people to support building nuclear power stations in England though (and their Westminster MPs normally abstain on issues not affecting Scotland anyway) hence why folk feel the need to winge at the Scottish govt bemuses me. Surely it is UK unionist parties who are supporting further nuclear power and the vast majority of their said members come from English constituencies. So what good does whining at the administration in Holyrood do? As far as power in Scotland goes I think as well as wind and normal hydro power goes there are also long term ideas about harnessing the massive potential of wave power.
