Comment posted Revised plans announced for new Kintyre creamery by Treblet.
Tesco’s prices are normally about the same as ASDA sometimes cheaper for some items and slightly dearer for others. However on a weekly shopping trip Tesco and ASDA are certainly cheaper than every other major supermarket chain such as Morrisons, Sainsbury and the Co-op.
You cannot include Lidl’s or Aldi as you would be hard pressed to do a weekly shop in one visit to either Lidl or Aldi.
I am a member of Kantar World Panel (also known as National Shopping Monitor) and I scan my shopping. Therefore I know all about the prices in supermarkets.

- Some of the Fair Trade products I have purchased in the Co-op are dreadful. I have had Co-op Fair Trade wine which tasted like vinegar and Co-op Fair Trade chocolate which is not nearly as good as Cadbury’s.
Tesco and ASDA will not open new supermarkets in a town unless it has a large population. The only reason that there is a Morrison’s in Fort William is because Morrison’s fell heir to it when they bought Safeways.
If the people in Kintyre do not like Tesco then that is their choice. They will certainly notice that they will pay a lot more for their shopping if they start using the Co-op in Campbeltown instead of Tesco.
You obviously do not like Tesco.
Where I live I would be delighted if Tesco decided to open up in competition with the Co-op. It would certainly make the Co-op reduce their prices and join the real world.
Supermarkets like Tesco are keen to take over post office’s as they hope people collecting their pensions and other benefits will then spend their money in their supermarket.
Tesco are still doing well when their main competitor is the Co-op.
- I would not be surprised if Tesco pull out of Campbeltown and sell their exsisting store to Lidl. The only reason that Tesco have supermarkets in Oban and Campbeltown is because they fell heir to them when they bought William Low’s.

- Has Councillor Iain Angus Macdonald’s rush to transfer to the SNP fouled the Ward 5 by-election pitch for Iain S MacLean?
There is no chance of councillors using Skype for meetings when they get mileage of 45p per mile to attend them in person.

I find it unbelievable that we have Dick Walsh back in charge after he cost Argyll & Bute council taxpayers millions of pounds because he signed off a document which he did not understand.
Talk about the blind leading the blind.
I am surprised that Dick Walsh’s mate Douglas Hendry has not taken a golden handshake to quit his job.

Yet another incorrect statement from yourself.
It did not cost the government and taxpayers trillions of pounds to support the UK banks.
For your information a trillion pounds is a thousand million pounds.
The government may have spent billions of pounds supporting the UK banks but eventually they will get their money back and probably more.
Do you actually know anything about financial matters or do you just like “spouting off” on forargyll.com and making yourself look stupid.
You certainly fit the bill for standing as a MSP!
- SNP gain a councillor at Argyll and Bute
As one of his constituents I suggest that you try to shame your local councillor into resigning and standing in a by election in his ward representing the SNP party.
It would be interesting to see how many votes Iain Angus Macdonald would receive.
In my opinion councillors should no longer be paid an annual salary and we should return to paying them a laid down fee for attending statutory council meetings.
That would encourage councillors who rarely attend council meetings to make more of an effort to attend otherwise they would not get paid.

I am surprised that you do not know about it.
If a resident phones their local Service Point to complain about something such as a street light not working the call is transferred to the Contact (Call) Centre in Campbeltown where it is logged to justify someone’s existence and eventually repaired.
Previously if a resident phoned in to complain to their local Service Point about a street light not working it was promptly repaired and usually within 24 hours.
