Comment posted McGrigor and Kelly say Machrihanish airbase community buy out at a crossroads by David Roberts.

I wasnt aware that MACC would not be employing the current workforce as I was led to believe when the community voted on this that jobs would be saved and created , it looks more and more likely that the community has been duped into voting for something that MACC had no intention of delivering maybe its time for the Scottish goverment to take a close look at this …

  • Time to pull the plug on this as no jobs being created and a total waste of taxpayers money just to satisfy a few peoples egos…

  1. Good on you Donald and Jamie. Now that real Labour in Glasgow have registered Glasgow First as a political party for Council elections will Argyll First do the same? Then can we have a Conservative to vote for here. Mulvaney won’t sort it out, can McGrigor now do something.

  2. Newsroom – The Scottish Government has been going above and beyond to help MACC win ground from the MOD (pardon the pun)for many months now. I would suggest that the identification of Machrihanish as a sight of national importance for Renewable Energy by the Scottish Government paves the way for further investment. I have heard Iain Wardrop, the chair of MACC, praise the Scottish Government for its support on more than one occasion in the last few weeks, the announcement above is merely an attempt to be associated with good news. I don’t doubt that Jamie and Donald have been working hard, but no more than the rest of us have.

  3. As a concerened community member and a member of MACC I do not know what the MACC intentions for the airbase are.
    It seems that only a few privileged community members are in the know.
    What I do know is that MACC do not want the existing workforce, thus making them redundant (good start MACC)
    How can the Scottish gov and local councillors support this.
    Perhaps one of the privileged few could enlighten me on MACC intention.

    • I agree with you David the Scottish goverment should take a a close look at this situation. MACC have duped the community on several points. At the open meeting in the Victoria hall they said they would let the Community decide if they would purchase the airbase after seeing their buisness plan, now it looks like the directors of MACC will decide for us

  5. Have heard that MACC are just weeks away from accepting the purchase of the airbase.
    I sincerely hope that the Scottish goverment are not going to throw any more of our hard earned tax money at this.
    Why not invest some money in setting up several small businesses in the town, I am sure this would be a better solution for everyone, especially for the hotels and B+Bs (MACC have accommodation for 400) advertised on their website.
    Lets hope common sense avails.

  6. After doing a quick survey with the people I know from work and social friends, I have come to the conclussion that the community do not want to purchase the Airbase.
    It would be interesting if the newsroom could do a poll on this.
