Techroom: ‘Al Lee for Congress’ has a website – and, keeping an open mind, I assume the thread is genuine.

  • Perhaps it’s time to re-introduce direct rule over our American colonies for the sake of the future of the world
  • W Hutchison: It may be just another typo, but do you really mean ‘stand in the road’? – the trouble is that on the A83 there are stretches without even a verge, offering no refuge to walkers and cyclists. Anyone ‘standing in the road’ is facing a bigger threat than fracking-related global warming or earth tremors, and might even be suicidal – the government and local authority are clearly failing to provide for what they claim to promote.
  • Politicalpony: which country do you inhabit?
  • Al Lee for Congress: ‘proven to be a criminal hoax’ – tell us more.
  • Cycling to work in Oslo is probably a lot safer than cycling along the A83, and despite the core path strategy it would seem that at least one Argyll & Bute councillor thinks that walking and cycling are unnatural activities.

  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    I wonder what caused the Hebridean Isles’ heavy contact with Kennacraig pier?
    The Isle of Arran got into trouble in West Loch Tarbert in 2010 when a mechanical failure led to just such a heavy contact with Kennacraig pier, but that was in February just days before she was due into drydock anyway.
    And there must be a question about to just what degree Calmac’s ship breakdowns are simply due to the age of their fleet, if the Finlaggan’s mezzanine deck was inoperable just when it was most needed.
  • Supreme Court finds for appellants on Named Persons
    That ‘someone petty enough…’ is obviously alive, if not well.
  • Luss Estates opens unmanned 24 hour filling station in Luss car park – and Arrochar Mountain Rescue was first user
    A good move – and it joins the considerable number of 24-hour electric car charging points that have been ‘rolled out’ in Argyll in the last few years.
  • Supreme Court finds for appellants on Named Persons
    And Mr Swinney’s got such a mild and reasonable manner for someone defending a measure that (even if he hasn’t the nous to realise it) has just that wee bit of a whiff of authoritarianism about it.
    It’d get a wry smile from George Orwell.
  • Charity seeks volunteers for 2016 Great British Beach Clean
    Where do you get the hearsay criticism of ‘immigrants’ from, if it’s not your personal experience?
    I don’t know about beach litter, but my impressions of highway litter is that it increases the nearer you get to Glasgow – but whether that’s down to the natives, or immigrants, I really don’t know (although I suspect it’s more likely to be the natives).
    One of the problems in Argyll & Bute is the way in which sea lochs trap litter from far and wide – the head of Loch Long at Arrochar is a prime example, and the amount of trash you can sometimes see on the shores of the Clyde from the train between Helensburgh and Dumbarton is astonishing – but whether it all comes from people living around the Clyde is another matter.
