Webcraft.
At least the Dundee FC version was not full of swear words!

  • This Hitler video has been used by different people on many occasions.
    Last year there was an excellent version produced by a Dundee FC supporter as a protest at the draconian 25 point deduction by the Scottish Football League given to Dundee Football Club due to Dundee FC going into administration.
    The management of the SFL are so hopeless that they still do not have a laid down points deduction in their rules for a member club goint into administration.
    If it had been Rangers FC they would certainly NOT have received a 25 point deduction.

  • Urgent warning for pensioners and savers
    Another little known fact is that large charities will not receive compensation under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and I enclose a list of exceptions to the laid down rules which prevents payments to these charities. See Item 12. http://www.fscs.org.uk/what-we-cover/questions-and-answers/
    Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) is registered as a charity and as they have over 50 employees they will not receive compensation.
    In fact there are 24 Housing Associations in Scotland who are registered as charities with the Office of Scottish Charities Regulator (OSCR) whose office is in Riverside Drive Dundee.
    I enclose details of ACHA’s income and expenditure for the years 2013 and 2014 downloaded from the OSCR website. As ACHA is registered as a charity it is does not pay a penny in corporation tax on its profits. http://www.oscr.org.uk/charities/search-scottish-charity-register/charity-details?number=SC042713
    West Highland Housing Association are also registered as a charity and pays no corporation tax on its profits.
    There are Argyll & Bute councillors on the board of directors of both housing associations and they should be explaining how they can justify these housing associations being registered as charities.
  • Is this the ultimate dream Scottish property? Golfers will agree.
    Hi Lynda.
    Thank you for your kind comments.
    From memory I think that the Tower of Lethendy was owned in 1989 by a stockbroker who financed the cost of creating his own private 6 hole golf course.
    The six hole golf course will consist of five par 3′s and one par 4 making a total par of 19 for the 6 hole golf course. If the golf course is played three times then the par for the 18 hole golf course will 57.
    I do not know how the 8 tee blocks are arranged but tee blocks are known in the UK as teeing off grounds. Therefore some of the tee blocks will be for ladies and some for gents.
    The layout of tee blocks may be separate ladies and gents tee blocks (teeing off grounds) at two of the holes and joint ladies and gents tee blocks at the remaining four holes.
  • Is this the ultimate dream Scottish property? Golfers will agree.
    I do not agree.
    If a job is worth doing it is worth doing well.
    Newsroom is a bit unlucky that I know all about the Tower of Lethendy golf course thanks to my local knowledge.
  • Is this the ultimate dream Scottish property? Golfers will agree.
    Hi newsroom.
    Golfers playing on 9 hole golf courses such as Bute, Tiree, Carradale and Tarbert Loch Fyne usually play twice round to play the normal 18 holes.
    There is a 9 hole golf course at Glenalmond College in Perthshire which two sets of teeing off grounds one at either side of the fairway.
    This means when a golfer tees off on his first 9 hole circuit of the course he/she tees off using the tees at the left hand side of each hole and on the second 9 hole circuit he/she tees off using the tees on the right hand of side of each hole.
    This gives a different perspective of playing the course during the second 9 holes.
    The golf course at Glenalmond is a private golf course for pupils and staff only.
    Personally speaking I do not like 9 hole golf courses because I like to play a different hole for each of the 18 holes which does not happen normally happen on a 9 hole golf course.
  • Failing first time round, RMT go for 2nd strike to screw Scotland – and themselves
    If a Labour Government had won the 2015 General Election the RMT union would not have called these strikes because they would have had Ed Miliband and Alex Salmond “dancing” to their tune.

  1. “has the full hearted support of Oban businesses and the majority of Oban people.”

    How dare he say that without absolutely any evidence.
    Nearly all the people I know who live in Oban are dead against the idea. A few restaurants close to the bay may want it I admit.
    The bay (and its view) are for all of us. Not just for the gin and tonic brigade on their flash boats. Well done to the Councillors who are actively opposing the destruction of the historic ambience of Oban Bay.

    • W.S.:

      Could you tell us all who are the Councillors who are actively opposing the proposal? Then we might see whether “nearly all the people you know” will agree with them on May 3rd?

  2. The only evidence I have about the matter is the opposition from some of the Council paid staff who went out of their way to oppose the proposal when it was part of the Chord ideas. Their bent words against it (“Councillors shouldnt vote for tenders for the project because they would be surcharged if it didnt go ahead”) made me think that some people were opposed to it for their own personal interests rather than its advantages or disadvantages for the town.
    They led some to oppose the idea bacause they thought that the business case had not been made, when without a tender figure there could be no business case.

  3. I think the majority of the folk that live in Oban can recognise the hard economic sense of having a proper marina in the town and have powers of reasoning that extend beyond the cartoon stereotyping that appears to pass for thought with ‘WS’

    I do get the impression that there are people in Oban who hold long-standing grudges against some of the members of OBM’s board, and that this may also go some way to explaining the persistent lack of enthusiasm on the Council’s part.

    I presume everyone has seen the OBM/Hitler video?

    Time for some investigative journalism to see if these claims of self-interest are true and if not to put them to bed? Just a thought – I am bored with Spygate and its endless follow-ups now.

  5. Sorry to be a pain but who were the local councillors who spoke against the marina at the public meeting in McTs.Any takers, just to clarify the situation before the May3rd elections.Independent,SNP,liberal or maybe MacKay and Devon.
    Sorry I just can,t remember what they were that week.

    • If my memory serves me right, councillors from accross the spectrum voted not to support the OBM proposal in the location or form presented. Contrary to Jamie McGrigor’s statement above, the majority of Oban people were by no stretch of the imagination behind the plan. i dont know what circles the Tory list MSP moves in to make that sweeping assumption. Perhaps a ‘referendum’ needed!!!!
      If possible, (for a politician), could Neil Macintyre give his answer YES or No for pontoons between the piers.
      The seemingly never ending Chord issues in general are one thing, but the particular issue of Obans central waterfront is another where the council have got right.

  6. I dont recall any of the Councillors speaking against the proposal at the meeting – tho’ the editor of FA was there and may have a note. It was the staff man who was challenged by Skye McIntosh.

  7. Just flitted back to the corran halls CHORD meeting on Sept.2010.That gives us a better idea of the local councillors views.The one undeniable fact is that nothing has been achieved through Chord in Oban.So bring on the elections and lets see if nothing is what people want.
    Power to the People.
