    Default John Thurso

    Sent John Thurso an email five days ago expressing concern about the recent Bill on communications privacy.

    Got a two page letter today from his office in the House of Commons addressing the points I had made. Not saying that I agree with all he said but can't fault the man.

    Many people prejudge John Thurso based on his background, but anyone who has ever spoken to him at a clinic/corresponded with him seems to get a genuine reply.

    As you say, I don't agree with everything he says or does, but he definitely takes his job seriously.

    He is dealing with an issue for me and has kept me in the loop at every stage.

    Is this the same John Thurso who wanted to declare a moratorium on wind farms that is the biggest growth sector in his constituency? You just couldn't make it up.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Its no honour for the County, just the old boys network again. More contacts for Thurso & more chances to make money for himself. All of Westminster needs reorganising & this old boys system dismantled. Privy Councilor, what function do they actually do & how much extra are they paid for it?

    The biggest eyesore, more like, and how many locals are employed when erecting these farms for the rich?

    Caithness is crime free, the health system is good, the streets are clean, there are not many (any?) homeless people sleeping in shop doorways and the quality of life is good. You can't really complain but some always will.

    That's not crime!! I'm talking about burglary, rape, murder, armed robbery etc. NOT jaywalking and general drunken brawls.
