“What a ridiculous plan this is. A cable is run on the seabed from France but then instead of hitting land at the last moment so as to cause as little disruption as possible it comes up in Portsmouth (one of the most populous cities in the country) and then travels a route through Nature Reserves on the way to one of only 3 main thoroughfares into an Island City? Daft. But it's fine because the elected Council will not allow it to go through on behalf of the electorate. Well that would be true in a democratic society but it appears a decision has already been made at central Government level to ignore the electorate. I object to the Aquind Interconnector.”
