French nuclear plants come to the rescue, delivering needed electricity as freezing weather causes Scotland's wind farms to seize up, producing just 2.5% of potential at a time of peak electricity demand. Scotland is officially opposed to nuclear power.

    I realize the French have excessive capacity and sell that capacity to make a profit, which is great for everyone, but part of me wishes they would just tell the Scots to freeze and live with the consequences of their beliefs.

    It wouldn't bother the Scots, they are used to being out in the cold.

    No matter how many times socialists are bailed out, they never admit they were wrong.

    Don't the Scots have all that peat to burn?

    They stopped because of the environmental consequences. They'd rather freeze.

    On this news, I would invest in companies involved in the distribution of alcoholic beverages in Scotland. I suspect that the colder it gets, the more booze the Scots will put inside their bodies to keep warm.
