Comment posted Western Ferries signs contract with Cammell Laird for new Dunoon-Gourock ferries by Jim B.

I hope the Dunoon Ferry curse does not afflict this project.
Incidentally,newsie, unless you know something I don’t, the Cowal Games is always the weekend of the last Saturday in August, never in September as you mention above. Time for some Tipex (other brands are available)?

Mind you the capitalist system hasn’t been a great success either with the banks going down due to greed and having to be rescued by the proletariat.
Maybe it is time for them to take the upper hand for a spell.
Interesting conundrum communism didn’t work, socialism didn’t work capitalism didn’t work, Tony Blair’s 3rd way didn’t work.
Is there a fourth way that will work?
