Go for it, Catherine. Burn all the ears. This issue needs a lightening strike – to be the best.

- The example of the Alliance should never be forgotten in terms of a descent into ‘anything goes’ that should never be replicated.
The best guarantee is Roddy McCuish’s nature which has been steadfastly honest. The challenge for him will be to hang on to that in the face of anything – and that is bound at some point to bring its difficulties.
We have all seen politicians who have become little more than holograms after selling off any semblance of integrity. It is hard – now – to imagine the straightforward Roddy McCuish committing or permitting any departure in that direction.
We will be as much on watch with this administration as with any other. And, as we have said, the presence of the Argyll First group is both reassurance and canary.
It is not the number of bodies in the coalition that matters, it is the substance of those bodies.

- Arctic Star medal struck – and will be posthumously awarded
HPw sad that he died so young. But you will certainly get his medal.
You can download an application form from www.veterans-uk.info/arctic_star_index.htm or write to The Arctic Star, MOD Medal Office, Imjin Barracks, Innsworth, Gloucester, GL3 1HW.
The criteria for the new meda, which your father and you as his family certainly meet, are:
The Arctic Star is granted for operational service of any length north of the Arctic Circle (66 degrees, 32’N) from September 3 1939 to May 8 1945, inclusive.
The Arctic Star is intended to commemorate the Arctic Convoys and is designed primarily for the ships of the convoys to North Russia and their Escorts. Eligibility is defined as follows:
Navy and Merchant Navy – Naval and Merchant Navy service anywhere at sea north of the Arctic Circle to include, but not limited exclusively to, those ships participating in, and in support of, Convoys to North Russia.
- ‘Shake off those winter blues’ free at Cabin Fever gig tonight at Craignish
We got the information yesterday morning and published it at once.
- Brian Wilson on Clyde and Hebridean Ferry Services tender
You are quite right about the number and degree of confusions in this area.
We are preparing an article for publication which, amongst other things which are quite an eye-opener, will clarify these positions.
- Lysblink Seaways off the rocks at Kilchoan
This does make rather a nonsense of the early decision to send Herakles back to Kirkwall before she even got to Ardnamurchan – because Kingdom of Fife was within 20 miles of Lysblink Seaways.
Hard to see what the role is for Herakles here at this stage.
- Russell offers to meet Council administration to discuss Castle Toward
It has to be said that this is now into ‘flogging a dead horse’ territory.
Of course there is perceived political advantage at play [this is politics and they all do it] – but continually reheating it is an error of judgment and does the members of SCCDC no favours.
They need to be allowed to refocus in whatever way they see themselves shaping their own future – and ‘differently’ is as likely to be better as worse.
But first of all, as human beings, they need a break to recharge. Their efforts have been unceasing.
