Whatever else he is, Trump isn’t daft enough to deny the obvious, but does that make him a hero in your eyes, Malcolm?

  • On the subject of cars, I find it very strange that we live in a society that sets increasingly ambitious targets for moving to renewable energy – and for increasing thermal insulation of buildings – but exercises no control over the purchase of ‘gas guzzlers’ other than what appear to be rather ineffective tax penalties.
    The price of fuel is irrelevant – if you’ve got the money there’s no limit on how profligate you are on the road.
  • ‘..I think the days of rich men dictating what can and cannot be done in Scotland are now past’ – so did I, and was surprised at the way in which an obvious ‘fat cat’ was given a platform in the Holyrood parliament to promote his personal cause. How many of the rest of us would be granted that privilege?
  • On the subject of intermittent tidal power, I’m surprised that the Sound of Islay scheme seems to be going ahead but as yet there’s no talk (as far as I know) of complementary tidal schemes to even out the electricity produced, nearer than Kyle Rhea . The Corran Narrows, Connel and Otter Ferry all spring to mind as having potential.
  • Scotland needs to get cracking with developing efficient, viable, energy storage systems – and reviewing the profit margins on government subsidised windfarms, to discourage ‘the get rich quick brigade’.
  • It’s definitely a brainwashing conspiracy Malcolm – when are you going to march on Edinburgh?

    Just for the historical record, ‘A Salmon’, can one assume that by now you’ve consumed your bonnet?

    MM – lies coming from Obama? – I seriously doubt it, perhaps you’ve got him confused with Trump?

    ‘Shear arrogance'(sic) is over-egging it by a long way, Malcolm, and remember just how much vindictive sniping there was by people without the guts to identify themselves.
    I think that the For Argyll folk deserve great credit for tolerating all the garbage in the interests of free speech – I would have been sorely tempted to ‘out’ some of the more vicious commentators (and recommend they seek counselling on the state of their mental health, before they get into real trouble).
  • SNP MP backs call for CalMac to put MV Coruisk back on Mallaig-Armadale service – and is to go direct to the Transport Minister
    So, if I understand you correctly, different Calmac ships require different, mutually incompatible, linkspans.
    A polite response is ‘Oh dear’ but there are far less polite reactions that would surely be in order.

    It’s Buckfast, not buck fast – and is named after a Benedictine abbey (also known locally in South Devon as ‘Fast Buck Abbey’).
