David Cameron: What about this?

Back in March I wrote about the arrival of the windmill.

And now it's gone.

No windmill

I noticed a few weeks ago that the windmill wasn't spinning quite as fast as before. Originally even a light breeze was enough to set it off but recently it needed quite a strong wind to produce any effect. A few days ago one of the vanes looked distinctly wonky and I thought that the pole was starting to vibrate dangerously. Yesterday Mrs F & W saw engineers remove the vanes and today I see that the whole device has gone. The engineers took photographs of the pole fittings on the gable end and I've read that vibration can cause serious damage to walls.

Bring back nukes.

I agree. Is all this wind emanating from Holyrood?

Think I'd feel a lot safer working in a nuclear power station than on a rooftop tonight.

I think so. I can see the pole from here in the West Wing of the Bloghouse and notice that there's a protective cover on top.

They're repairing it, right? Then they'll put it back?

At least only about half of that would have been paid by a taxpayer grant.
