Have a look at the OT today Ken, Council refused to answer their FOIs into Spygate. Has there been a change of management at the OT?

  • Super-Sally got something right for a change!

    So no grandstanding by the power-hungry candidates of Helensburgh. Vivien Dance must be bealing, bet she’d already picked out a new outfit and handbag.

    Nevermind Viv, have a wee cucumber sandwich over at the Waitrose site n cheer yerself up.

    Not sure which is the funnier story this morning, this one or Rory Colville and his coat of many colours LOL

  • Baillie on latest A&E stats from Royal Alexandra Hospital
    As a recent patient in most of the hospitals in the West of Scotland, I think I am quite qualified to answer this from the punters point of view.

    First of all, anything that supports bringing A&E back to the Vale of Leven MUST be supported, by everyone in the political spectrum. There is a stretch of A82 between Milton and Bowling that makes this necessary. Roadworks or an accident in this stretch of road makes the whole of Dumbarton choke up and the place comes to a standstill. Ambulances can’t get through, let alone anything else. If it were you, would you want your loved one stuck on the A82 in the back of an ambulance with beleaguered but thank goodness we have them, Paramedics doing everything they can with their limited equipment? I was such a loved one recently and I thank my lucky stars there was no such delay in getting me over the river, there’s more than a good chance I would not be here typing this today.

    Another issue with this stretch of road is for getting ambulances on the way back from RAH to attend more emergencies, if the A82 is blocked up the other way as it takes no time to back up to Erskine – even something as simple as sunshine does that easily as half of Glasgow heads up the West Coast.

    Review of hospital staff in the 4 hospitals I have been in over the last couple of months – Superb. Everything to be proud about in the NHS. Doing a difficult job whilst being overstretched in every imaginable way. Every ward is full to choking. Patients are being sent home as soon as humanly possible and the beds filled as soon as they’ve been cleaned.

    There are a number of causes:

    Patients are being sent from hospitals all over Scotland to receive specialist care which they can’t get in hospitals closer to home.

    Patients being held in hospital because care packages are not being put in place quickly enough by agencies like Social Work etc.

    A&E departments not being available in more local hospitals.

    This list goes on…

    However, the answer to alleviate the RAH’s particular problem, is to re-open A&E services at the hospitals that now feed it. Its quite simply an overload problem. Too much of the population have to report there.

    I mean no disrespect to the fabulous RAH – Alexandria Paramedics and the RAH saved my life, but this is a service quite clearly at breaking point.

    BRING BACK A&E TO THE VALE!

  • Scotification pros and cons
    Quite frankly, I’d rather settle for the BBC being devolved completely.
  • Luss really does give a toss
    Raining pancakes in Luss tomorrow. I’m going out with a large net lol Good luck to all taking part.
  • Jim Murphy under pressure to confirm intentions for East Renfrewshire
    I have 3 comments to make here. Firstly, as an ex-Rangers supporter who lost her affection with the club long ago, I can tell you that there are some genuine fans of football attending Old Firm games and a good portion of Glasgow’s Finest Scumbags there for no other reason than to wind the opposing teams supporters up and hope for a fight. They most definitely should have their access to alcohol during the game cut off. They do a fine enough job shaming everyone within spitting distance of Glasgow as it is. At least lets hope they can sober up a bit whilst they are on TV.

    Point 2. Jim “Two Cans” Murphy. I would not waste my eggs on a man as greasy as cheap sausage fae Farmfoods. You’ll enjoy them much more at home people, especially if this hairdyed bampot gets into power – anywhere. Why? You think we’re skint noo? Wait til Jim the closet Tory gets his mits on the purse strings! I for one hope wee Nicola skelps his bahookie. No wait, after 50 shades of Grey, HE might like that.

    Thirdly… Its good to be back. Thanks all for the best wishes! x

  1. It’s a sad reflection of our times when the date of such a visit has to be kept secret for security reasons.

    I remember trying to drive from Connel to Oban when – unknown to me – the Princess Royal was in town and Scottish Water was busy destroying the A85. Such chaos have I never seen outside the Delhi ring road.

  2. Robert, no great secret, the date has already been widely pulicised in the local press. The Princes Royal will visit the Victoria Halls in Helensburgh on 25 April to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Halls as well the work of Enable and Jigsaw.

    The visit is being jointly hosted by the Friends of the Victoria Halls, Enable and Jigsaw.

    It is most unfortunate that Cllr Vivien Dance, who is one of the Directors of the Friends of the Victoria Halls and who works with Enable and Jigsaw will not be allowed to attend due to the visit taking place just 8 days before the elections.

    I am sure that she will be most disappointed that she will not be there. A photo opportunity missed just before the election.

    • Just for the record – there are no photo opportunities to be got – it has always been the case that this private visit would only be covered by Palace/Lieutenancy official photographer………….this is about community, disabled, charities, volunteers, and vulnerable groups and should not be politicised

      • We doubt that there is any way this visit could be politicised because any attendance by any councillors will, of absolute necessity, be proscribed.

  3. Since when did the incompetent Mr Sneddon become”an Executive Director” ???
    By order of Loudon? Or Walsh?
    On the basis no doubt of his paper to the Rural Schools Commission which was passed without comment by the Alliance of incompetent Independents, although I suspect none of them will admit to it, or calim value from it in their election addresses.

  5. “Purdah” and how it is applied can be an illuminating concept.

    The Oban Times, which even its most avid supporters would hardly claim to be at the cutting edge of political comment and social awareness, recently announced that it would be applying a political embargo during the run up to the council elections. How would we be able to tell? In the that very edition it managed to excise the names of some elected councillors from two reports while printing the names of other candidates for the same May elections within the same item.The same edition also managed to publish a wholly uncritical letter about the “superb performance” of the local area committee that must have come as some surprise to Oban and Lorn residents.
