Comment posted Council statement on press staff suspensions and more leaked information by Robert Wakeham.
If anyone in a senior position in an organisation lets a bruised ego get in the way of sensible management, and vindictiveness takes over, it’s the senior that should go; I saw a very good office manager hugely embarrassed when a juvenile email was seen by the director she was making fun of. The director was hurt by the remarks, but the dust settled and no lasting harm was done. The event at Kilmory may well be just the latest case of vindictive treatment of staff for minor – if stupid – misdemeanours.

- Simon: I’m sometimes entertained by the abrasive tone of your comments, but what sort of sycophant is a slabbering one? Since a is nowhere near o on the keyboard, I’m concerned that it’s not a typo and there’s something I don’t know.

Doesn’t the SPTE have a remit to co-ordinate public transport provision here? – maybe I’m imagining it, or maybe they’re just pretending, or maybe they’re only really interested in Strathclyde bus services and the Glasgow subway (on the basis that only a tiny proportion of voters use the Gourock ferries, and politics is all)
- 31 hour shout Tobermory Lifeboat’s longest ever, ending in joint operation with Oban lifeboat
The Oban Times reported on 6th June on the MAIB report on a similar incident last July when a small container ship rammed the Isle of Bute, and apparently legal action is ongoing.
- Refloated cargo ship MV Fri Ocean escorted to Lynn of Lorne – and on into Oban
Not being a mariner, I wonder why – in this day and age of almost universal use of radar (and GPS?) for navigation – ships don’t seem to be equipped with a proximity alarm, a bloody great klaxon fit to waken the dead, that is triggered if the boat closes with an identifiable hazard.
It would have to be capable of deactivation in harbour areas and, eg, places like the Corran Narrows – but would surely be invaluable, especially at night.
Maybe it would be seen as a dangerous threat to the need for proper watch keeping.
- Auchindrain in crisis: facing paying off its two permanent staff
Considering how all the wind farm developers are so keen (and can clearly afford) to provide substantial funding to help local community ventures, this is surely a prime example of an exceptionally good local cause with national significance.
- Baton of SAMS Deputy Director passes from Jones to Miller
With the range of expertise at SAMS would I be naive to hope that it should be possible for this country to resolve the controversies surrounding marine aquaculture – the environmental impacts of waste pollution, and of sea lice infestation and treatment?
