The staggering success of the Alex Salmond crowdfunding scheme which reached its target within less than one day, has probably inspired the decision by Orbital Marine Power to do something similar to raise £7 million in funds for a new Orkney tidal turbine. According to expert on digital funding of pocket money and former Naemeritus Professor of Media Politics at the University of Pacific Quay’s School of Propaganda Studies, in Ayr, Dr John W Robertson:

‘Orbital Marine Power must have doubted the effectiveness of crowdfunding when their local MP, Alistair Carmichael, only managed to raise £3.54p, for his legal costs in the case know locally, allegedly, as the ‘The Big Fatuous Lying Bar-Steward’.

It was only after the dramatic success of Salmond, also, according to local Lib-Dem, Labour and Tory-supporting, bar stewards, a BFLB, that they decided to give it another go.

      They haven’t asked me back. I only reported them for misuse of public funds to Scot gov, Ombudsman and papers.
