C.R.A.P. to fight £10,000-a-day lawyers with 10p badges
Power company lawyers arguing in favour of giant pylons through the Cairngorms National Park are having their fees paid by us, the electricity consumer - and now they want more.

Company lawyers are picking up an estimated £10,000 a day for appearing at the Beauly-Denny inquiry.
That cash comes out of OUR electricity bills - companies have even demanded a price increase to pay for their inquiry costs.
Cairngorms Revolt Against Pylons (C.R.A.P.) is fighting to keep pylons out of the National Park.
Pylons are 7-times bigger than you see on the A9.
We need cash to fight back.
C.R.A.P. has to rely on donations to pay experts to represent us all at the Public Inquiry.
We have designed exclusive C.R.A.P. badges and tea towels to publicise our campaign - place an order now!
CRAP chairman Jo Cumming from Laggan Stores says: "We are actually paying these companies to destroy the Cairngorms National Park as soon as it has been created. This line must be put underground."
"We have to make our case at the Public Inquiry on August 28 in Newtonmore and for that we must raise funds to pay experts - now."
Bury the pylons - London can do it...
In less than two years London has spent £70million ripping down 52 giant pylons obstructing work on the 2012 Olympic Games site and burying the cable in a 12km tunnel.
Beauly-Denny power companies have been caught time and again exaggerating the cost of putting power cables underground - increasingly standard practice in Europe, the USA and Australia. Scottish and Southern Energy reported profits last year of £1billion.
THE OLYMPICS WILL LAST JUST TWO WEEKS.
PYLONS IN THE CAIRNGORMS WILL LAST FOR OUR LIFE TIMES.
