ForArgyll.com: Argyll's online broadsheet.

A poll by the Shetland Times in December …

Comment posted RSPB Scotland ‘disappointed’ by Scottish Government consent to Shetland Viking wind farm by Scots Renewables.

A poll by the Shetland Times in December 2010 recorded 36% in favour, 33% opposed and 31% undecided. Hardly ‘70% against’ is it?

Scots Renewables also commented

  • Onshore wind wil be cheaper than new nuclear or new coal by 2016 or 2017 at the latest. Only gas will be cheaper.

    I’ll take that as a ‘no’ then . . . .

    Well, doesn’t look like this site is coming back any time soon. I wonder if there is any appetite for a replacement?

    What I have in mind is a site which:

    a) Reports news that primarily affects Argyll, and leaves national/international issues largely alone except where there is an Argyll context

    b) That adopts a neutral reporting style for most reports or, where there is a strongly slanted opinion piece, balances it with an opposing view at the same time or within days. Cybernattery or pro-unionist propaganda would therefore be confined to the comments section and kept out of the articles.

    c) That makes extensive use of guest posters, as I certainly do not have time to take on Newsie’s mantle

    The primary thing that would decide me to go ahead with this would be a sufficient number of guest authors and editors to help me take the task on. I have all the necessary IT skills. The domain name ForArgyll.co.uk is already registered.

    If anyone is interested in this then please get in touch – you will be able to work out how to find me if you do not know already.

  • Of course Jenkins wants to move the independence debate from the ‘hows’ to the ‘whys’
    Great news from the Electoral Commission this morning.

    A fair question, fair spending limits and the bonus that the ‘No’ campaign have been asked to spell out what a ‘No’ vote will mean for the country.

    It looks as though we are finally on course for a fair and legally binding referendum that is ‘Made in Scotland’
