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

- Welcome to Argyll’s Loch Litter-side and to Loch Litter and the Tossers National Park
I know that A&B finances aren’t great, but surely the policy of not putting litter bins in laybys is a false economy. I don’t excuse littering (not at all – it drives me mad) but if there were bins in the laybys I’m sure the litter problem would be reduced. Putting the bins in is not a panacea, I don’t think it would fix the problem entirely. But it would help.
- Game changing intervention as Labour candidate resolves Argyll black hole for mobile phone signal
Just read about this EE experiment in Cumbria. Seems to be very early stages, but this might help Argyll if they can make it work.
(Quite hard to read – lots of acronyms….)
- Possible game changer: Prestwick Trumped for Turnberry – and more?
He’s full of hot air and little else. Apply the ‘sniff test’. Is there really untapped demand for golfers to zoom in private planes around Scotland? Something that Netjets (who are massively successful in the private jet niche) haven’t spotted? Has he signed a guarantee of investment, or is this yet another PR opportunity?
Go into your favourite search engine and look up his previous venture into the airline business, ‘Trump Air’. Wasn’t exactly a lasting success….
- A83 Latest – closure [updating regularly]
In other parts of Europe with terrain like this (Alpine regions, Norway, etc), they’d have built a tunnel under the Rest years ago. I’m baffled why our road engineers don’t look at this – or are they not allowed to by political masters?
- 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…).
