Comment posted License charges for performances in Argyll and Bute: Russell warns of cultural threat by Iain Hurrel.
Important subject spoiled by aggressive undertones of point scoring against previous administration. Im very sure you would not have writen that, knowing that you have not already sorted it out.
Maybe you could now move on to the ferries and sort that out. However always good to know the out come before it happens.

- Yes Simon I’m sure that’s going to be the way, it does seem to be a sort of retirement plan or re shuffle thing for votes, but I think this time it will be diff, as most said or made out its not about the money anymore its about the area and I’m sure you will start to see Cllrs now forgoing these benefits / payments as a point of principle.
I don’t really have any political stand as it all seems to just get worse and the promises bigger and more out outlandish by the week, with as much back stabbing as poss.
What I find really annoying is newly elected Cllr’s with no track record to speak of slagging off Guy’s like Dick Walsh who most in Scottish politics could not hold a light to and only dream of a career / record like his. I remember only 30 yrs ago seeing Mr Walsh fill his car locally at the petrol station most mornings at around 7 in the morning and not always the same one (spread the love around)in a type of way? 30 yrs on its still the same, week in week out. I’ve never met another Cllr in all that time or seen one work so hard for the people of Dunoon, although it started before that i’m sure?
It makes me smile when you hear the trumpets of what we are going to do and how we are going to do it when we get in. Just that the trumpets stop not long after that and voices are not heard until the next election. there are Hard working Cllrs and that’s why they get back in, in most cases.
Personally I think Mr Walsh has done a truly incredible job of running the area in his time in office. Im glad that’s he’s not back in as Head of the Council as I think he may enjoy it very much more where he is now and has completed a very long shift for his area and ward. he;s better placed to actually make sure the administration get it right and stand by the election promises and not let them away with madness and really messing it all up.
The ferries thing will go away, but prob altogether now.
Anyway well done everyone that want to be a Cllr
Mr Walsh enjoy your new role of watch dog. Back to the pumps no doubt?

At last someone in politics that obviously really does get, and is willing to advertise Scottish product with more effect than a massive advertising campaign.

It say within the article this,
The Board of Stramash is prepared to fuel those developments with commercial lending and a professional business plan.
This can only mean bank and private lending as that’s what is classed as commercial lending, and great to a local business not having to go down the usual grant funding route, but standing on it own two feet. Although maybe had a help already to get off the ground with some grants in the early stages, which is how it should work and clearly has in this case.
I’m glad it’s not beside me, all that screeming kids noise all day.
Great to see a business doing well for a change well done Mr Story
- Jamie McGrigor pursues canopy option for A83 with Transport Minister
Alex, I don’t think the term pub owner is a derogatory remark with the hospitality trade, it’s a actual position of responsibility with the fabric of a community. You in the other hand suggest that The position of pub owner is something below this position not myself.
This as you know is what ever way your wanting look at it lots of folk have suggested this option before this time. The point being it will only be a qualified person that can tell us what the correct solution will be. By as you put it running a successful business with 17 rooms is not a qualification is it.
Writing saying it’s the solution to ministers who have no idea who Mr D Clark is will only be completely bewildered by the suggestion that he should listened to as a person of authority, I think Mr D Clark would agree with this as would the best part of the population out with Inverarray burgh.
You should just think a little more About the wider processes of a problem on this scale.
