just to endorse the fact that PRS (Editor: Performing Rights Society) plus other excessive charges has just closed down my business. Our estimate for one night’s live entertainment per week was nearly £800.
Most performers are millionaires already so why they need to continue milking society is a mystery.
Local Radio stations if they support community life and local businesses should be exempt. Most of them are not functioning for personal profit.

- SSE’s record breaking efforts for Kintyre and Arran
Well we had 4 days without power on Bute last winter, and now Arran. At the AGM of the Scottish Islands Fed. on Mull last Sept. we had a work shop/discussion with Community Energy Scotland. One of the suggestions was that local power generation systems should have an option of closing off from the grid if necessary so that the power could be used locally. Sounds very sensible to me.Perhaps micro-generation and storage or PV operated systems should be encouraged. Nano technology or fibre optics could be employed. Just a pity that it’s always the large companies that have to take control of theses options. If there are any engineers out there who could offer feasible suggestions we would like to hear from them.

Knocking down the walls sounds the best idea. Also renaming the rooms is an option.Make sure you have a lounge, a dining room, and a study before you start to count bedrooms.The list could be longer with imagination.

Shouldn’t that have been YES THEY ARE STILL DIRECTORS OF SPFA?
I wonder what their legal requirements as company directors are? I would have thought they would have to stand down, or the SPFA should be publicly discredited.
