Incinerator latest

It is the day before the election and Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg have been criss-crossing the UK today, seeking out every last vote.

By contrast, I have been in Fraddon all day at the Public Inquiry into the incinerator. Today’s witness for SITA covered landscape issues, who I cross-examined for an hour at the end of the day.

I focused part of my cross-examination on the fact that the Waste Disposal Authority had decided to develop the Parkandillick site as early as the middle of 2005, almost 12 months before the Council agreed the Contract and a long, long time before they had the decency to speak to local people.

Tomorrow the next witness will concentrate on historic environment issues. I will be cross-examining again.

Outrageous! Have you seen the film Zeitgeist (2007)?
