      Enough to generate all of Salmonds speeches for the next year
      Socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the abject worship of the state.

      No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent.

        In Scotland, tens of thousands of people are without power, and transport has been badly hit as a big storm hits the UK.

        The Met Office recorded a gust of 106mph at Glenogle in Stirlingshire.


        Cut-out Speed - At very high wind speeds, typically between 45 and 80 mph, most wind turbines cease power generation and shut down. The wind speed at which shut down occurs is called the cut-out speed, or sometimes the furling speed. Having a cut-out speed is a safety feature which protects the wind turbine from damage. Shut down may occur in one of several ways. In some machines an automatic brake is activated by a wind speed sensor. Some machines twist or "pitch" the blades to spill the wind. Still others use "spoilers," drag flaps mounted on the blades or the hub which are automatically activated by high rotor rpm's, or mechanically activated by a spring loaded device which turns the machine sideways to the wind stream. Normal wind turbine operation usually resumes when the wind drops back to a safe level.
