Comment posted Islay’s quakes ripple on to Fair Isle by Treble T.

It is a pity that the BGS do not show the depth in miles as well, then it would solve any arguments. For the record a kilometre is five eights of a mile or 0.625 of a mile. Therefore 8 kilometres equate to 5 miles.

    John Semple.
    What a lot of nonsense.
    From memory you were very keen on the use of video conferencing for Argyll & Bute Council meetings to save money.
    As soon as the 2012 elections were over and your party were in power as part of a coalition they was no more mention about video conferencing from you.
    In fact you even had the nerve to pay a visit to Islay to see what happened on the island and paid a visit to the monthly meeting of the Islay Community Council to justify you staying overnight on Islay and having a night’s DB&B at the council taxpayers expense.
    Islay Community Council meetings are held on a Monday night at 7pm.
    There was no need for John Semple to visit Islay at the Argyll & Bute council taxpayers expense because he had previously visited Islay at MAKI meetings.
  • The Union, the young, reform and the pound are the gold in the embers of indy
    In today’s Dundee Courier there is an article which states that the voters living in the housing schemes of Kirkton and Whitfield where most residents are unemployed voted Yes.
    This is probably because they believed all the nonsense that Salmond, Swinney, Sturgeon and Sheriden told them that in an independent Scotland everything would be wonderful.
    Of course this is total nonsense as in an independent Scotland VAT of at least 15% would be charged on transport, food, children’s clothes, books and newspapers.
    The VAT charged on domestic electricity, gas and heating oil bills would increase from 5% to at least 15%.
  • Salmond departure only hope for healing in Scotland – successor cannot be Sturgeon
    Alex Salmond should have resigned with immediate effect but there is no chance of that happening.
    Salmond still wants to be able to “lord it” at the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles next week as First Minister of Scotland.
  • Salmond departure only hope for healing in Scotland – successor cannot be Sturgeon
    Sokay.
    I totally agree with you as I know to my cost exactly what Michael Russell is like.
    On 22nd March 2014 Michael Russell had a letter published in the Ileach complaining about me and quoting my name because he (Russell) did not like me writing anti-independence letters to the Ileach.
    Michael Russell’s view is that it is his way or no way!
    The letter that Michael Russell had published in the Ileach was a very bad move by him as I promptly sent Michael Russell an email telling a few home truths including his failure to act on the dental crisis on Islay which is currently still on going.
  • Salmond departure only hope for healing in Scotland – successor cannot be Sturgeon
    Mike Russell has been a disaster as MSP for Argyll & Bute as he acts like a bully.

  1. Shortly after midnight on 1 Mar in SW Iceland there were two shocks, the largest being 4.7, which did some damage to property. Further shocks occurred over the next couple of days: some in N Iceland.

  2. My neighbour said “the Earth is speaking to us”, but he confessed he didn’t know what it was saying.
    Earthquakes on Islay are perhaps related to the Highland Fault which comes down the Great Glen and a branch turns left and runs between the two halves of the island. But they were deep (9–10 km) whereas the one the same day at Arrochar, and there was another one there at 8.34 am today, were much shallower, only 1–2 km.
    By the way, the BGS website says the Fair Isle one was 9 km down not your 1.9 miles – or have you got conversion problems!!
