Britexit for the UK? In, out and shake it all about for Scotland? Shortly after the uncertainties of thee independence referendum, the UK and Scottish electorates have to face up to another ‘generational’ choice on staying in or leaving the European Union. It is again not a simple decision. On one hand, there is Brussels greedy for a European federation, anathema to many and on the other hand, the problems of leaving the single market without a parachute!
In its determination to ensure that our electricity is delivered via a market driven arrangement, albeit regulated, Westminster has created a quite Byzantine generation policy operated under a very complicated regulation arrangement; and it has certainly not designed it with Scotland’s particular electricity generation strengths or need in mind.
