Comment posted School Meals saga: Council distorts facts and blocks Martha’s blog by Robert Wakeham.
Maybe too much choice? – and the wasteage must surely bump up the cost.

- But ‘Government and European imposed procurement restrictions’ – just what are you referring to, JayC?
- In some cultures the only form of response to criticism and protest is to attack. Reminds me slightly of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, but then he thinks the country and its people are there for his benefit, rather than the other way around.
- Something else for the New Order to look into, if promises were made but never honoured.
- Looking at the ‘damage limitation measures’ taken by the council I just wonder if they’ve seeped out of a bastion of the old order within the senior management? Any attempt to impose the rule of omerta looks like it could backfire very badly indeed, and the sooner whoever’s responsible realises that southern Italian practices are no longer acceptable – or resigns to spend more time with their family – the better. Otherwise they might just be digging their own grave.
- ‘Argyll and Bute Council’ – yes, but which one, the old contemptibles or the new order? – I wonder if the latter are aware of the ‘one party state’ trick of blocking Martha’s blog, or was this a ‘delegated decision’?. Wait till the Daily Mail etc get to hear of that.

By the way, apparently it’s Barclays that’s keeping the Coop afloat (or pulling the plug, in due course)

Simon – if you were cavorting about confident in the power of your bow thrusters and then suddenly the damn things didn’t work and you wound up in a collision, would you take the blame?
- Positive Attitude PA23 – Dunoon votes YES to BID
AS you know, Simon, I don’t always agree with your sentiments, but this ‘no hangers on’ stuff has a slight whiff of the intolerant and undemocratic about it.
However good the BID motives are – and I wonder why a decent local authority and chamber of commerce can’t together achieve the same? – it should surely be voluntary on the basis that success will attract the doubters and naysayers to ‘join up’.
I thought that the concept of press gangs went out of favour around the same time that slavery was abolished.
- Testing A83 Emergency Diversion – passed with distinction
There already is ‘some traction going’ according to the Glasgow Herald, a few days ago – reporting that the government is planning a mass tree planting programme on the vulnerable slopes.
- A83 resurfacing at Dunderave to start 16th March for 5 days
Five days doesn’t sound like much time to deal with the ropey stretches on this section of road, properly rather than just cosmetically.
