Island interests blowing in the wind down here

From my Daily Record column
THREE weeks on from the general election and no sign in the House of Commons order paper of Western Isles SNP MP Angus MacNeil renewing his commitment to any kind of effective representation.
It's notable that Labour's Ian Murray MP has tabled a question pressing the Energy Minister Greg Clark to make a statement on the Tory manifesto commitment to supporting island windfarms in Scotland.
The Lib Dems' Alistair Carmichael has also organised a Westminster Hall debate on the issue.
Thank goodness someone is looking after the islands' interests.
