Comment posted Waitrose has £325k on table for Tuesday planning hearing – and opposition rolls in by newsroom.
This could be said to be an almost perfect line up of the numpties. Authoritative? Hardly. But no doubt it will be sufficient, along with a side dish of pak choi.

- We understand that it is practically unheard of for Councillor Danny Kelly, who is chairing the hearing, to overturn the planners’ recommendation. If he were to do so on this occasion, it would be strange.
- So where did the recent survey majorities FOR a retail development on the pier head come from – as quoted by Sainsburys in the letter we have published?
- Lowry – as you must know, we are a very small team with a huge amount of work to do and we cannot keep absolutely on top of everything.
We haven’t forgotten about this matter and we will be pursuing it.
You gave us a smile at the suggestion that this – or anything – might be ‘too political’ for us. Hardly our MO.

Apologies – we had no intention of ignoring Food From Argyll;but we didn’t mention any of the contributors in the photo-piece on the event.
The prior pieces were highlighting the specific emergence of Food From Mull & Iona, which like Bute producers, has an island sub-identity that is working hard to showcase the quality of the food and food products they produce and grow these very appropriate businesses to help to sustain their island economies. Since Food From Mull & Iona is new, we were working to make sure people knew about them and about the success they achieved first time out.
- The independence campaign: personal gains and loss
For John Sinclair – comments under Comment 1 above.
The visceral love of place expressed in ‘Caledonia’ is something we ALL share.
The territorial taking exclusive possession of it by one half of this now divided country and the active attempt to dispossess the other half from feeling that it also speaks to them and for them [to me and for me] is proof of what I personally most fear.
‘Should I become a stranger’? Half of the population is being made strangers now.
As an Irish person who made a conscious decision to come and live in Scotland, familiar with the songs of emigrants that are part of the tonality of every culture with a diaspora, I have always heard ‘Caledonia’ as a song in that vein.
It never felt as if it was a song of division, a song that excluded me from those feelings and from this expression of them.
And if it has become that, I can’t accept that Dougie Maclean would effectively license ‘Caledonia’ as a musical guillotine separating ‘them’ from ‘us’.
