Fortunately UKIP are, politically at any rate, an utter irrelevance in Scotland. Nevertheless it is always good to see them getting a hard time wherever they rear their ugly mugs...
'A leading UKIP member has stood down as his party's economic spokesman after he was branded a hypocrite for striking wind-farm deals on his Scottish estates.
'Professor Tim Congdon agreed the contracts with SSE in Argyll and E.On Renewables in Caithness, the Sunday Herald revealed last month. But Mr Congdon was accused of hypocrisy over the arrangements, which appeared to fly in the face of UKIP's anti-wind farm stance.
'The party claims the developments are economically "unsustainable" and eyesores that blight the countryside. Last night it emerged that Mr Congdon had stood down as economics spokesman following the row. But it is thought he wants to remain as the party's candidate in the Forest of Dean where he is due to stand in the 2015 General Election.' (Herald article).
