High vole-tage

In a possibly serendipitous moment, scientists at Cern in Switzerland may have hit upon the solution to two separate problems here in Orkney.

Apparently, whilst colliding a small mustelid with a high voltage cable, LHC boffins have discovered statistically significant evidence for the total annihilation of the former, but not the latter.

Pardon my vivid imagination for the conflating thought that the much-anticipated interconnector cable from Orkney to the Scottish mainland would have a part to play in stoat eradication. Combining the funding for renewables and ecological protection for the greater good? It is indeed a fleeting thought, whose graviton-like existence has yet to be proved.
