Comment posted School Meals saga: Council distorts facts and blocks Martha’s blog by IslandDweller.
Hopefully the BBC team will follow up – I have sent the “you and yours” team a link to this article
@ L Patrick – I’m sure we would love to support the council – if only they would behave properly and not like a body controlled by the Ceaușescus

- Vodaphone Rural Open Sure Signal 3g mobile coverage programme seeks community applications
This is absurd! 3G is now history.
My phone is 4G capable, and I’ve sampled 4G coverage in Glasgow. It’s light and day faster than 3G. Argyll needs 4G coverage in villages, not this insult.
Furthermore, the mobile networks are required to get 4G coverage to 98% of the population, which is quite a tough requirement. So it seems doubly pointless to install 3G, as they’ll have to invest in 4G in rural areas anyway.
(No idea what happens to the 98% requirement if there’s a yes vote…).
- Martin Briscoe: Three Peaks Yacht Race – first arrivals in Loch Linnhe
Pedant moment. Highest peak in England is “Scafell Pike”. Snae Fell is on the IoM.
And on the main subject matter. Blimey – I bet they’re shattered at the end of this!
- HIE building 20-bed upmarket bunkhouse on Rum
In the travel business HIE means “Holiday Inn Express”. I was very puzzled when I glanced at this headline! Memo to self, read more closely!
- Upgraded train service for Oban but no marketing initiative to sell it
The new UK timetable started on Sunday (18th). The early departure from Oban is now operating.
- StagecoachSmartcard scheme launched in west of Scotland
@Jerry. It may come sooner than you think. TfL (who run things in London) have introduced this. You can pay your fare on any London bus by waving a bank card (so long as it has an RFID chip) over the terminal by the driver. It works a treat.
It works in London because there is flat fare for every bus journey, £1.45 anywhere. The vast complexity of fare options on longer distance bus journeys is the challenge for the tech people.
