A waste of time?

Does the announcement that SSEN will lay a subsea cable dedicated to replace the power station in four years time mean an end to the disastrous and destructive Viking (white elephant) windfarm?

I note Tavish and Alistair are angry at the announcement (Subsea cable set to replace power station; SN, 13/06/2017), demanding a proper consultation and a visit by the Ofgem chief executive.

After taking part and watching the outcome of countless consultation processes over the years, I have to say that I have no faith at all in any tick box consultation exercise as they never take in local community concerns or influence the desired outcome, and are just waste time and money.
