- Ah…..new to the area, eh?
Well you won’t fully appreciate that landslides happen more frequently at night…..it’s to do with 3 legged haggis scampering around the hills after dark. They get particularly frisky in the period just after St Andrew’s day.
If they were more like pandas the risk of landslip could be reduced to just 12 hours per year.
- I do wonder about the competence of transerv to manage the complexities of this piece of road.
They seem to be struggling to identify where a landslip is after it’s happened and yet we’re meant to have confidence in their ability to predict it, assess it and repair it, not to mention come up with some workable longer term plan.
But yes indeed, all credit where it’s due, that the current slippage is not at the site of the works done at previous slippages is a great achievement. Whether this is due to the works or due to the fact that the dangerously unstable top soil there has already slipped and been carried away….who can tell?

But I do wonder whether the most convinced unionists tend to be people who’ve little or no experience of living inside their homeland, people whose opinions are more likely to be influenced by manipulation from the self-interested political activists who are more committed to advancing themselves rather than anything else – people who enjoy stirring prejudice and intolerance.
However hard it may be to accept, but it’s the same sentiment that drives the internet abusers who are busy ‘turning’ young people to the ISIS path of intolerance, and terror.
- ONE VOTE for democracy and the freedom to be different
Well, yes, by all means forget the independence question and focus on the GE, and as you say, there’s much to recommend adopting a position of voting for a candidate who will put the interests of the constituency first. Yet I notice that despite your recommendation for people to adopt that position your own expressed views seem heavily influenced by not by the qualities of any candidate but by “vile rantings” of people who are not standing in this general election and that many of the rantings that you refer to and you claim have influenced you actually happened during the the indyref. As to these “unanswered questions”, they too I take it are a reference to matters that are pre-indyref.
I never for one moment thought you were innocent in politics.
