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.

  • Savills say new version of Land & Buildings Transaction Tax 27% higher than rest of UK
    There is no need to have a debate about the declining population in Argyll & Bute as the reason is quite obvious.
    The schools in Argyll & Bute are keen for as many school leavers as possible to go university when they leave secondary school. Whilst that in theory may be a good idea in practice it means that most of the school leavers do not come back to work in Argyll & Bute after graduating from university as there are few if any jobs in their chosen field in Argyll & Bute.
    Schools would be far better encouraging their school leavers to serve an apprenticeship in one of the trades but that does not look good in the league tables for secondary schools.

    Hopefully the next Permanent Secretary to the Scottish Government will be fair and independent to all parties at Holyrood and not cosying up to “nippy sweetie” Nicola!
  • Gordon Brown to stand down from Westminster at General Election
    Gordon Brown has a cheek being paid a full MP’s salary at Westminster since May 2010 as he has hardly attended any sessions of parliament. He is like most politicians in the UK who are out to earn as much money as possible whilst carrying out the least amount of work possible.
  • Michael Russell’s message to Argyll
    I am also a responsible dog owner who owns a West Highland White dog and I feel very strongly about this issue.
    We used to have two West Highland White dogs but sadly one of them was put to sleep last June aged 10 as he was suffering from cancer.
    One thing is certain. I will not be bullied by Michael Russell who is supposed act for all his constituents no matter what party they voted for and it is high time that Nicola Sturgeon told him to stop his bullying tactics.
    The only way to deal with a bully is to stand up to him.

    Willie.
    I would certainly not waste my time contacting the UN Secretary General as the United Nations are a bunch of toothless wonders!

  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!!
