Comment posted Western Ferries signs contract with Cammell Laird for new Dunoon-Gourock ferries by Jim B.
The BBC report on this says that the Cammel Laird name was taken over by another company and gives the impression that this company has only repaired and refitted existing ships.
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)?

- Problems with both pro-indy and pro-union campaigns
I still think that h20 is a reincarnation of Anne Baird and for those who wonder why I make this suggestion from time to time I will point out that John Logie Baird wrote articles under the pen name of H20.
Then there is the fact that neither Anne nor h20 can ever bring themselves to answer a question no matter how simple it might be.
The Yes campaign, in my opinion, is based on:-
Lies – example “Yes we have taken legal advice”.
False promises – example “Everyone will be £600pa better off”.
Inadequate planning – example “We will continue to use the services of DVLA, The Post Office etc.”. There seems to me that YES think the rest of the UK will rollover and meet the requests of Scotland.
Miasma – example “The White Paper” – contains nothing but pipe dreams.
Irresponsibility – example ” So if you do not wish the snp model or green model of independence you can still vote yes and vote for Scottish Labour or SSP, or even lib dem and Tories”. Following the pattern of the A&B Councillors?
I agree with most of newsie’s article.
For me, the future of Scotland is too important to hang on the idea that at least we will be voting for our own Government.
- The Ileach on Islay’s upcoming ninth single malt whisky distillery
I still fail to understand why the association is against minimum pricing. As far as I can see, the only whiskies below the threshold are supermarket own brands and the occasional supermarket (loss leader?) offers.
Where is the logic?
- Lib Dem performance in Euro elections may spin out into Argyll & Bute
Another Yes promise that will come to nothing I would expect!
If the yes mob are successful, the first thing that will happen is that MSPs will vote themselves a hefty rise in salary/expenses. Afterall they will running the whole shop.
- The no-no campaign
In the SNP comic which lodged in my mail box a week or two ago I noted that after Indy we are all going to be £600pa better off.
Can Jnr Tick tell me how I will receive this money? Will Alex send me a cheque? Will it be transfered electronically into my account?
I hope it is not going to come disguised as better services or such like as the only way I will be £600 better off is if I have it in my pocket to spend as I wish. (This is certainly what some voters will expect)
Johan Lamont was right today when she condemned the Yes campaign. It is dishonest and it is immoral, but were not the SNP always like that.
Jnr Tick may well be a Social Worker, that seems quite feasible to me. Ask them a question and you will get another question back.
- Will Argyll and Bute Council change its name?
If the newspaper type propaganda I received this week is anything to go by, it will all be rubbish.
Loads of promises, no costings and a slight snag with the guarantees – there is to be an election after the referendum which means there is no certainty that the SNP would still be in power and able to keep their promises.
Fortunately it still looks as if it will never happen.
