    The procession of the repatriated military dead in Iraq and Afghanistan through Wootton Basset painfully underlined the enhanced vulnerability of the young in warfare, almost always in the forward positions.

    Thank you for this.
  • Council Leader reshuffles the pack
    And Fergus Murray has no specialist expertise in economic development.
    He happened, as an experienced senior planner, to have expertise more adjacent to economic development than anyone else in the council.
    Argyll in an area where sustainable economic growth is the single – and challenging – determinant of our survivability.
    Yet this hopelessly unfocused council thought it was fine to appoint a waste management specialist as Executive Director for Economic Development and what what used to be Strategic Infrastructure – who had experience of neither.
    And while Fergus Murray runs himself ragged as the plate-spinner extraordinaire of Kilmory, the Executive Director for Economic Development and Infrastructure spends her time making plans to combat the rate of employee absences due to sickness.
    This cannot be part of the brief Sandy McTaggart, her predecessor, fulfilled. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the economic and infrastructural development Argyll desperately needs.
    This sort of issue would normally be handled by the HR Manager and the CEO, but they may have less time on their hands.

  1. I remember when Brian Keating acquired the Ugadale and the Beachcomber about 5 years ago and he was talking then about reviving the Kintyre Club then. I think alot of people thought he was mad. It was so great to see him yesterday, and see his project reaching fruition. Saving the Royal, building the new course, recruiting the Americans, reviving the Kintyre Club…. He should be very proud!!

  2. What a great project for Kintyre, Keating & Southworth should be commended. Both have done a great deal to help the area. Building the second sustainable links course (which can never be moved to China), Restoring the two most beautiful hotels in Kintyre (both over 100 years old) to their former glory..(with better water closets), employing 100′s, attracting 1000′s and also restoring the Kintyre Club, a much forgotten institution which captured the very spirit and pride of Kintyre when it was the mother of Scottish enterprise.
