Comment posted Russell stance on Argyll Ferries raises serious questions by Gus Mackay.
Arrived at McInroy’s Point yesterday at approx. 16.20, just as the ferry was about to depart.There were three lanes of cars left behind, including us.
By the time the next ferry arrived,loaded and departed we left behind more than two lanes of cars.
Western had three ferries running but surely this is proof they are not coping (to the satisfaction of customers) since being awarded the monopoly situation we find ourselves with.
This happens regularly so please spare us the drivel from those who don’t live in the area and don’t use the ferries.
This is not as it might seem a criticism of Western, they run a decent service.
What is obvious to all is there should be a vehicle/passenger service running from Gourock to Dunoon town centres as there was before the Scottish Government reneged on an election promise to provide two new ferries for the route, instead lumbering us with the bathtub boats.
Competition is healthy and that is what is needed.

- I did say approx. 16.20, it was perhaps very slightly later.
The ferry we departed on left at 16.50
It was not a criticism of Western, I said they run a decent service.
Your reasons for saying maybe WF should have been running four rather than three boats, taking into account your usual stance does not justify comment.
- How many ferries were they running per hour?
More importantly, CalMac were restricted to one per hour – hardly fair competition!

- Walsh to lead all but Lib Dems, Conservatives and George Freeman
Dick Walsh would have appeared to have played a blinder during this ongoing fiasco.
He has stood back as the Snp have torn themselves apart from the inside and the outside of their own group.
Two ‘leaders’ gone since the election is hard to understand, but, as I have said on FA before they were not up to the job.
As we move forward it is only right those named by newsroom should not be anywhere near the new administration, and I would hope some of the councillors involved would not have the brass neck to take positions with additional allowances. But I doubt this will happen.
There is much to do in Argyll & Bute, it is now time the elected councillors were busy doing what they were elected for.

Well said Neil, close run thing on who is talking biggest load of crap but I think you can safely give that ‘award’ to ‘dougie’.

Let’s not beat about the bush, dividing the council budget proportionately is not going to happen, so JB’s pal is talking nonsense.

You now appear to be trying to salvage some sort of credibility for this ongoing shambles.
Given the fact you know the answer to your last question, why ask?
