A Hole In One Of His Arguments

And so another hero bites the dust.

You know that moment when you discover someone you'd admired turns out to have a dark secret or unpleasant trait? Think of the moment in "A Close Shave" when Wendolene from the wool shop tells Wallace she can't stand cheese. "Oh no. It brings me out in a rash."

"Not even Wensleydale?" Wallace whimpers, clutching at cheese straws. (I've seen the film about 15 billion times thanks to TWMBO. Not that I'm complaining you understand. Any excuse for some W&G!)

Well it's a similar feeling I had when I read this hilarious sketch by Martin Kelner about the golf at Castle Stuart.

Yes, it seems the Voice of Golf, Peter Alliss, doesn't like wind farms. The comment he made is of course nonsense. No energy generation works 100 per cent of the time. And at least wind doesn't pollute.

Golf of course is one of the most environmentally-damaging sports with its huge requirement for water, chemicals and energy. Really all golf courses should have turbines on them. I'd suggest solar panels for the clubhouse roof but given the downpour during the Open maybe some sort of hydro scheme would be more appropriate!
