- What is the route from the Gamble Steps to the railhead?
- We cannot compromise the staff concerned by trying to speak to them – they are still council employees.
If there are other responsibilities in their job descriptions, they might form the basis for whatever redeployment may be in the frame, should that be acceptable.
We are aware that the Council told the Helensburgh Advertiser that there were no planned redundancies, with the men receiving their redundancy notices on the heels of that statement.
This can safely be read as the cowardly action of a paranoid council culture, knowing it would get hammered for these job losses but realistically having little alternative.
We thought about the Waverley of course – but it visits Kilcreggan very seldom and would not make a job.
As for maintenance, these days, with the unmanned piers which are the majority, maintenance will be done by a team sent in following a periodic inspection.
The issue here is the length of the perid.
CalMac have been having real difficulties with the Craignure jetty on Mull, which is council owned and whch is in a bad way.

The council’s management [?] of the CHORD project will go down as one of the longest shaggy dog stories in local authority history.
- Michael Russell’s message to Argyll
Curriculum for Excellence was indeed introduced by Mr Russell’s predecessor, Fiona Hyslop.
He is not responsible for its origins but he is responsible for implementing it.
The one who finally hits the ‘Go’ button is the one responsible for the consequences.
It is immediately obvious that CfE is a content free zone and a jargon riddled notion,
You have only to go to its website and try to make sense of what it says about itself and try to make reason of it.
Mr Russell as the incoming Education Secretary had the opportunity and the authority to bin CfE – but did not.
It is Scotland’s young people and Scotland’s future who will pay for the patent inadequacies of CfE imposed upon it through the superficial engagement of these two ministers.
- New Bute-built landing craft for Scottish Salmon Company – and a name tied to Tarbert
Quite correct. North Bute Primary is in Port Bannatyne and is the only primary school there – and we took a descriptive short cut. Apologies.
- Oban Winter Festival neglected in government promotion of Scotland’s Winter Festivals
So why not include the existing rail service from Glasgow to Oban within the Winter Festival rail access promotion?
- Russell gazumps new First Minister’s Cabinet reshuffle announcement
‘Leaving government’ simply means no longer having a ministerial post.
