  • It is still in progress.
  • Thanks, Scott, That rings a bell.
  • Thank you for the correction. Was there a filling station that had been part of the businsss that was bought by the community?
  • Thanks for the Dick Gaughan link – new to me but an intriguingly different version from the Billy Bragg one which is the first and only version I’d previously heard.

  • Syriza, one seat short of overall majority, now talisman for the Scot Nats
    Could not agree more.
    Of course there is no effective Greek recovery. Mr McWhirter though, rightly identified the fact that – below the massive interest burden on the massive debt burden – the Greek economy grew [from a very low base] by what is now almost 4%. He did, foolishly – go on to compare that growth favourably with Britain’s. That’s the problem with polemic.
    As you say,there is no escape from austerity for Greece. It just depends on the specific source of that austerity, formal or informal, with the spectre you raise of it becoming worse in the chaotic collapse of an exit from Europe.
  • Syriza, one seat short of overall majority, now talisman for the Scot Nats
    This was no ‘offhand statement’ but a fully fledged major article, five columns wide in a six column page, six inches deep and with a two line two inch banner headline – text as quoted above.
    It is unprincipled to disavow Mr McWhirter when he is unhelpfully silly while trumpeting and basking in his dedication when he is helpfully astray.
    He put his career and is credibility on the line for indy. He may have written an awful lot of nonsense in the process – from the same unsound emotional basis as gave birth to the Syriza bonding – but those who were very glad of his open affiliation at the time look pretty shabby in distancing themselves from him in different times.
    The uncomfortable parallel is that, as may happen in Greece, Scotland could have been out of its union shelter, struggling with a currency problem out of the sterling zone and therefore, as Alex Salmond declared, defaulting on its share of the national debt it would responsibly have had to service.
    This is scary when we look at Greece. But it is what Scotland was seriously confronting only a few months ago.
    Just under 45% of us voted on a wing and a prayer.
  • How many nuclear powered lighthouses, buoys and oil rigs were there in the UK?
    Interesting, So we’re still using them – or a new generation of them.
    Their utility remains attractive.
  • 5 Argyll communities shortlisted in Vodafone’s National Rural Not Spot 3G mobile coverage
    Agreed, but is it not in the Kintyre peninsula? And we’ll be glad to be put right if the ‘peninsula’ is more narrowly defined than we have thought.

    We had an overly literate tick in the headline. Apologies. Now corrected.

  1. Being originally from Campbeltown, I am glad that the Gigha folk were able to buy their island, and the aerodrome at Machrihanish was bought. But, my question is, why should I as a tax payer, and all other tax payers have to support them and give handouts? Would it not be fairer to arrange reduced fees and interest from the state owned banks instead of public money (remember the government has no money, it is ours) I would like help to pay for my home, which the nasty bank actually owns till my mortgage is paid off, but there doesn’t seem to be a queue of politicians coughing up cash for that.

  2. I much prefer Dick Gaughan’s version of from his, in my view wonderful, album ‘Handful of Earth’.

    Also, I would just point out that large estates can receive enormous sums from the public purse under a variety of ‘schemes’ which contributes to their survival in their present form. So it could be seen that this contribution from the public purse is a small ‘balancing’ measure.

      • Generally good news here, but do be aware that the Tayvallich scheme does not include a filling station.

      • It looks like the auction is on 20th March. I am trying to contact the Tarbert community council to see if there is any appetite for this locally. I am also interested to know whether a similar option is available for another local landmark that has been closed and is in danger of falling into disrepair – The Columba Hotel.
