My guess is that the name change is to make it more attractive to the tourist market. Tying it into Loch Lomond makes sense from that perspective.

  • No nationalist politicisation of the Games?
    Couldn’t agree more Anne. The calibre of BBC reporting, both in terms of news programmes and documentaries, has been deteriorating year on year on year. For serious and comprehensive news reporting you have to dig a hell of a lot deeper than Auntie Beeb!

    If they have what a ridiculous waste of tax payers money that is (granted that wouldn’t be the first time the BBC have done that).

    The BBC news programs are supposed to report the news as and when it happens. It has nothing to do with allocating minutes to one argument or another.

    Lets say, for arguments sake, the three mainstream ‘NO’ parties are all involved in Scottish independence activities within the course of a weekend. In the same weekend the SNP are involved in one as well. As far as I am concerned the BBC should cover all four as all four are current and newsworthy. Following the ‘equal minutes’ approach only one of the three mainstream parties activities should be covered to counter balance the one SNP one.

    Covering all four is not showing a bias toward ‘NO’ – it is covering the news, what the BBC are paid to do.

    I am not saying a flat denial is good enough. If anything I am saying that even the denial wasn’t required.

    I don’t think the BBC should have to put forward any research to counter the paper. Predominantly because the paper was a flawed bit of research in the first place.

    It was covered in a thread on here before but my google searching has failed to find it. This piece of ‘research’ was ridiculously unscientific and as its credibility was so easily thrown into question it should have been binned as a piece of ‘evidence’

    A group of people watch news articles and determine whether, in their opinion, the articles clearly favoured argument 1, argument 2 or were neutral. That is it!! Human perception of message is wide open to preconceptions – that alone makes this sort of limited research somewhat redundant as a credible source of information to draw any conclusions from.

    I will wager if you took 50 different people and each of them watched all of the same articles the percentages would be notably different from person to person depending on their political opinion, view point, education, prior knowledge of the issues, any inherent bias they may have at the outset of the process etc etc.

    As a piece of research it fails far more than a lot of other papers that have been dismissed by both the YES and NO campaign depending on what the message in the paper was. Why should this one be given any more credibility than those ones?

    So no I don’t think the BBC should have bothered responding. I would defend their resource not being wasted on such an invalid piece of research just as I would defend the SG if, for example, a few ‘NO’ campaigners on here got their heads together and somehow collated flawed evidence from some other source that some area of SNP policy was detrimental to a minority group (I am making that up entirely – it isn’t a hidden accusation!)

    Apologies should say ‘both can ‘ rather than ‘but can’

    One of the embarrassing, but predictable, elements of the debate is the ability of both sides to reject all research which doesn’t support their argument whilst holding in high esteem research which sits comfortably with tgem.

    The media bias research is a prime example. A bunch of people sitting round watching tele and making a personal decision on whether a story leaned one way or another. Fails on just about every criteria for proper research yet is held up, even by.the SG, as hard evidence.

    I have sympathies with both sides of the debate. But can, and often do, make credible and rational arguments. The attitudes towards research and various papers are one of the failings in both camps.

  1. What was wrong with the ‘Colquhoun Arms’ name? – I thought that changing original pub / inn / hotel names to something considered more marketable was a peculiarly English affliction, but apparently not – unless the previous name was synthetic, which seems unlikely.

    • It will probably still be known locally as the Colquhoun Arms, however, I’ve been told that with the new opening they want to get a fresh start and previous people who ran the pub had let the place get a poor reputation.

      Now that Luss Estates have taken it back over and spent a hefty bit of money on it, a wee name change doesn’t seem to big a deal.

      Locally, the worry is how much a pint will cost!!!

  2. It is wonderful news to hear that this hotel will be re-opening and have a name that will attract tourists. The fact that there is a local history attached to the developers and that the blot on the landscape will be no more is just a joy. I love Luss and have missed the hotel facility over the years for a meal or coffee. We will definitely be visiting on our road from Strone to Glasgow. Good luck with this exciting addition to the West of Scotland.
