No, Simon, the ‘sole responsibility’ lies with a whole succession of administrations stretching back to the colonial days before the Holyrood government – landslips and rockfalls are nothing new on this road.

- What stabilisation job? – look at the photos on their website.
- It could get to the stage (if it hasn’t already) that the BBC 5-day weather forecast becomes essental reading to assess whether the road to Glasgow is likely to be usable or not.
It’s one thing for ferries to be regularly disrupted by bad weather, but for this road to suffer likewise would be intolerable.
- Correction, Simon, ‘rests with the inaction of successive governments’ – not like you to let anyone off the hook, is it? And if you want to conflate this problem with other issues, perhaps we’ll eventually be subjected to the ‘final solution’ of you rolling all your various concerns into one huge rambling question to be addressed to all and sundry on whatever threads come to hand irrespective of relevance? – you could get an endless series of non-answers to make hay with.
- W.S.: I appreciate and understand your horror, but the fact is that – pre-Holyrood – Scotland was latterly governed by one person who from recollection was responsible for the full range of central government ministerial functions save foreign policy and defence. There seemed to me to be a distinct whiff of colonialism about that arrangement.
- The trouble is Simon, you’re not my teacher, the council’s got little or nothing to do with the landslide problems at the Rest, and regarding the way councillors voted on something I know no more than you and so can offer no enlightenment. You could try asking your teacher.

No parking area? – this suggests more than a whiff of smelly business, to put it politely. Definitely not ‘mince & tatties’, ‘Simon’.

Sounds sensible, difficult to see why the government wouldn’t follow this course.

I wonder if next year’s introduction of much stricter anti-pollution laws to enforce the use of low sulphur marine diesel fuel oil will increase the costs of ‘traditional’ ferries and make more sense of the economics of the new hybrids?

You, and Andrew Argyle, might have a point – John Sinclair’s posts (remember him?) were very evangelistic, and I think that he probably represented a substantial body of the nationalist mindset.
- Councillor Breslin removed from administration by unconstitutional Leaders’ protocol?
And all because local councillors choose to identify themselves with national party politics.
