Ken, although I’m no great fan of PFI …

Comment posted Question: How can we license fracking when we have permanent drought? by Robert Wakeham.

Ken, although I’m no great fan of PFI I can’t imagine many projects quite as disastrously managed as a very large hospital that suffers from a ‘fail dangerous’ power supply where the emergency generators have repeatedly failed to kick in when needed – ever since the hospital first opened.

  • It’ll be very interesting to see how the marine turbine array in the sound of Islay interacts with shipping, and also the larger marine life from seals to basking sharks etc.
  • If someone could invent a way of ensuring that ruminants got a regular glug of red wine the value added for a barbecue product could be a winner.
  • ‘…Free-Thinkers and Open-Minded folk….evidently spurious…’ Your arguments seem frequently to be the reverse of open minded, W.S.
  • That explains why I’ve never heard a cow fart, but I can assure you that it’s the reverse with goats – at least, if they’re feeding on typical mediterranean scrub. And there are plenty of goats in the world.
  • To cut to the nitty gritty, if we were to take the subject of atmospheric damage really seriously, should we be debating how to stop cows farting?

  • 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’).
  • New Transport Minister humiliates CalMac MD
    If a second ship was added to the Craignure route because the Isle of Mull couldn’t cope with the traffic, it’ll be interesting to see what happens when she’s on her own again.
  • ForArgyll on Pause
    Salem? Really? – Would that be Salem near Llandeilo or Salem near Aberystwyth? – are you sure they’re not moving on to Mull just to get away from you?
  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    For Nigel MacLeod: given the current ‘pause’ in this website’s customary wide coverage, the way in which the discussion under this particular topic has spread to cover all things Calmac is surely not in the slightest bit surprising – and if particular issues arise concerning Islay service provision I’m sure that people will be keen to add their comments.
    For myself, I’d be really interested to hear the reasons for the recent ‘crash landing’ at Lochmaddy, and to see whether lessons can be learnt, given that there was what appears to have been a similar incident at Kennacraig not that long ago and it’s surely reasonable to assume that lessons were learnt then.
