Comment posted Council issues prompt response on Martha Payne’s NeverSeconds clampdown by Grant MacDonald.
Maybe it’s just me but the £77k (currently) raised for Mary’s Meals has actually lifted my spirits.
The fact it took the unwitting collaboration of an unfortunate headline in an unfortunate newspaper and the incompetence of a council often ‘at war’ with those it is supposed to serve is perfect.
Two wrongs can actually make a right.

- Whenever I see your posts, I am equally reminded of the well known Wombles song.
Strange synergy there.

- Michael Russell looks like the first SNP MSP to put a personal Plan B into action
Just a brief note to thank FA for this.
At the bottom of my driveway is my letter box. Halfway up is the wheelie bin… Those sods who steal my wheelie bin every week and give it back empty appeared on schedule and I’d remained ignorant of this important missive.
- Experience autumn and choose your national tree
Jade. Agree about the Scots Pine. It’s a tree which always looks like it will survive, no matter what our country throws at it.
- Fudge rules: no change – yet – at Argyll and Bute Council
I suspect many of the familiar faces are still here but simply cannot be bothered correcting posters with an agenda. I tend not to post often as “the usual suspects” suck the pleasure out of debate.
If I were to write, we do NOT need a vehicle ferry, just a passenger ferry capable of achieving the crossing reliably, someone is bound to crawl out from under a rock. Or press the dislike thing repeatedly.
- SNP Group Leader not even sure which day it is
Perhaps I can be fairly judged as blowing this beyond proportions but when FA opt to ridicule a political party based on an email content which they have been forwarded, it’s brilliant.
We’re living in an age where people are being detained at airports by a UK Govt using dodgy legislation, we’ve a whistleblower taking refuge in what we used to call a Tinpot Dictators embassy, and some bloke hiding in the despised Soviet Union to keep himself away from the clutches of the land of the free.
Oh, and we’d someone in Argyll setting up Spy Accounts to check on public complaints about council activities. I hear the council paid her enough for her never to need work again…
While the article is obviously tongue in cheek, everyone should defend FA’s ability to write it.
Who knows, the current anti-porn legislation could perhaps define The SNP as a body which should be banned from the internet as it’s attracting people.
- Scottish Government forced to intervene on loose-mouthed Russell gaffe in Campbeltown
Never suspected I’d write this but, in fairness to Mr Russell, even 20 minutes on a boat is better than 2 minutes on a bus. A bus is simply transport whereas a boat is always an adventure.
Of course, my caveat comes from the unpleasant passenger boats on the Dunoon run. When adventure feels like life threatening danger, it’s not worth it. (And I’m a boat person and know these stupid boats are able to handle the crossing. Ideally, without paying customers.)
