Comment posted Argylls to be scrapped – along with the best recruiting battalion in the army by Iain McCallum.
I am repeating myself, but there are Tory grandees spinning madly in their graves at this pathetic excuse of a Tory government’s destruction of the British Army. My understanding is that they want the TA to supplement the Regulars. That will never work. With due respect to the Terriers, they can never be as well trained and prepared as regulars. And worse still, what employer in their right mind will employ, or allow their staff to join, the TA? TA troops will be away from their full time job most of the time to cover the short fall, leaving an employer to cover for the gap that will be created.
As an ex-Royal Marine and a (soon to be) ex-Tory voter I could weep

Crikey Longshanks! You come across equally as bitter as those that you feel are equally poisonous.

Flipping heck LC! Why bother if it bothers you that much?
- Campbeltown Picture House planning for spectacular return
I look forward to it reopening, but I also fear that when things like the Wee Pictures close, they never recover. People get out of the habit of going, and no matter what is offered, folk will be doing something else. I heard that when they showed the closing ceremony live there was less than a dozen people in to watch
- Two major winners last weekend: Mach 1 Stages Rally and Kintyre community
but the astonishing number is that 90 volunteers signed on for marshalling – 80% of whom were local people…….as an exile from Campbeltown I would say that knowing the folk, there is no surprise that so many local people volunteered to help this amazing event run smoothly. That is what they do. You only have to look at the success of the likes of the MoK10k and other events in a place that is as far away from anywhere that you can get to see what the locals will do. And that’s not counting the various fundraising events run every week. Well done to all concerned
- ‘Mach 1 Stages’ – the inaugural Kintyre car rally is GO for 5th & 6th July
Outstanding effort for getting something like this to South Kintyre. Lets hope, like the 10K that it is the start of something big.
