That’s interesting Ronnie, I too would like know why this is the case. When you say ‘quite diffferent’ can you elaborate? Are those meals on the island more nutritious, do they look more appetising? is there more choice? larger portions? Of course, these opinions on meals are all subjective as quality, how appetising etc. are not particularly easy to quantify.

- There appear to be two parties at fault in this debacle, A&B Council and a few national rags who are deviod of the ability to be reasoned and impartial. I think it was pretty obvious why these newspapers were so selective in portraying this situation in such a sensationalist and negative light, it suits their political agendas at the expense of a very well meaning child not to mention staff who prepare and cook meals with the budgets they have year in year out. This ban on photographing meals in the dinner hall could surely have been reversed without all the hype and mass media attention had the individual who made this decision appreciated that censorship, especially of an extremely productive and as mentioned well meaning child is something alien to Scotland. Maybe the staff at the school could have been given more reassurance that they were not at risk of losing their jobs, that it was merely reckless and thoughtless media attention. How refreshing to see Councillor McCuish on TV this morning holding his hands up admitting A&B Council had got it wrong, a rare thing in politics these days be it local or National. If only more politicians would do the same considering the gravity and serious repercussions of some mistakes made. Instead we get the usual predictable spin applied to their faux pas, shifting the blame.

“His action on Thursday is simply beyond understanding or defending; and would appear to have been executed without thought for those he led into territory they had never anticipated entering when they took office a year ago – and whom he has left beached”.
Newsie, good to see you’ve finally seen the light when most sussed Robb out a long time ago, except oor Mary on here.
Listening to several who had far closer contact with him it very quickly became obvious where his motives lay, hence his demise.
Your informer/source’s judgement prior to now has been well short of the mark.
- Strachur Post Office under threat of closure
I used to drive from Dunoon to use this p/o because it stayed open late.
Sandbank post office used to stay open until 9pm, that is if the particular member of staff on at the time knew how to operate system and process parcels etc., One or two of the less experienced could provide a very basic service but definitely better than no later service at all.
Like our banks, most post office’s opening times don’t always suit the 9-5 working day so looking forward to Sandbank providing the later service.

Your opinion, generally political, is going to be divisive regardless, and is what many of us “really dislike”.
Well researched factual information is greatly appreciated.

Herbie Dice – re your post dated 11th June 8.48
No need to apologise.
I am voting ‘Yes’ and will continue activism for an independent Scotland till the grave.
Pigeon hole me any way you see fit, Nationalist, social democrat, separatist but please do not mistake those of us who wish the country we live in to do what every other independent country takes for granted by aligning us with Nazism, a pathetic boring many times tried & failed weak inaccurate attempt to entwine us with that filth.
You say “Most intelligent and modern liberal people consider it an evil creed”.
The SNP should it be re-elected in 2016 post independence wish to keep Scotland a member of the EU, not very insular Herbie? Open borders, free to travel and integrate within EU member states.
The union you support has a government unelected by this country, Scotland, who wish to shut off movement of peoples from other EU states by wrenching UK from the EU appeasing the UKIP movement down south.
This sounds more insular and most definitely further to the right than an independent welcoming Scotland would be.
- New major financial issue, supposing Scotland voted ‘Yes’ to independence
“Have the proponants of separation, the SNP, made our society the slightest bit fairer in the seven years it has held power here ?”
Have the SNP had full fiscal autonomy? What about the powers to reform Welfare?
There’s two biggies for starters completely out of the reach of any democratically elected party here in Scotland.
Devolved matters such as health, education, agriculture and justice although hugely influential in progressing our society, will not give us the tools to close the ever widening chasm between the haves and have nots. This problem as good a starting point to creating a “fairer” Scotland as any.
