  • Lamont standing down immediately as Scottish Labour Leader
    The desperate grasping at Kezia Dugdale rather suggests that what you fear may happen is on the slipway.
    Kezia Dugdale is a talented MSP who shines in a very shallow pool where the best talents are unremarkable.
    With experience and a good mentor, she could be an influential politician for the future.
    But she is being grabbed at simply because she shines relatively, with no care for the fact that she needs time and guidance to grow to political maturity.
    She does not need to be propelled prematurely into the leadership of a haphazard parliamentary group within a national party which is directionless and underfuelled.
    With no sign on the horizon – at Holyrood or Westminster, of the thinkers that are so badly needed right now, Labour needs a strong strategic political intelligence to harness and redirect itself. There is no sign of that capability either.
    Political fixing and opportunism will get a listless party through the odd bad night but cannot fuel it for an expedition.
    The prospects are not good.
  • Oban North and Lorn by-election count under way: indications, analyses, result
    Obviously cross-eyed in adding this one up. Apologies. Will recalibrate this later.
    On the second point, this is a rule-of-thumb indicator; and some people who give first prefs do so out of temporary disaffection with another party and are not actually core vote for the party on question. So the most reliable rule-of-thumb is to take votes at face value – including those for newly disaffected independents.
  • Decoding Helensburgh’s Colquhoun Square: Comet I or Comet II?
    Had you made your suggestion on the lighting design for the square to Councillor Petrie who might then have taken if forwards at council level and become singularly associated with it through that process?
    We should make it clear that it is popular received perception that associates Councillor Petrie with the ‘Comet’ lights, rather than any claim made by the man himself.
    It would be very interesting to know of your complete plans for the lighting of the Square and the thinking behind what you had intended.
  • SNP Deputy Leader candidates set out their stalls
    It may be that this is an issue Mr Brown has not fully thought through.
    He does seem the most capable candidate and the most progressive one.
  • Lifeline for wildlife – 5p per carrier bag in Scotland from today
    Evidently all ‘single use’ bags carry the levy, regardless of the material form which they are made – paper, plastic or recyclables.
    But hygiene related bags – as for bread and cakes, for dirty products [eg with soil attached] and for medicines, are levy free.
    We’ve not seen anything yet on take away food packaging, like polystyrene fish and chip or pizza boxes.

  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.
