Comment posted Council Elections: The count by Jade.
I’m gutted for Gordon, too. I’ve always found him very helpful and he’s done a lot in a quiet way. Alastair was a councillor previously and it’s good to have two island members again this time.

- Karl, Tiree’s covered by Ward 4 so your best bets are MJD and Alastair MacDougall from Mull. Know MJD spent quite a lot of time over on Tiree last couple of years hearing views.

- Parliamentary committee backs preservation of ‘The Tinkers’ Heart’
I’ve always been slightly confused with the terms tinkers and gypsies in Scotland – it meant something very different when I first encountered them in England. Down and admittedly a long time ago, gypsies were Romanies and tinkers were the ones you had to watch out for. Then we got new age travellers – many of whom we found to be the equivalent of tinkers. Where we happened to live before coming back north was a very long-standing site for gathering of the locals and gypsies – coins and artefacts dating back centuries still came to light when gardening. We had a lot of gypsies come by and they were the most charming people. Never stole anything and quite often they’d help us and we’d try to give something in exchange – rarely accepted but declined in the most courteous terms, purely because we’d given them a bit of space for a couple of days.
So if this is important to those people, we should be respecting it.
It seems the UK is falling over backwards to accommodate other cultures – sill waiting an answer on Halal meat in our local supermarket – perhaps we should widen our thinking?

Well, as far as this forum is concerned (don’t do Facebook or Twitter), there might be a less rudeness and a bit more debate of facts to support individuals’ various points of view. I know some may enjoy it, but sometimes it just takes over.

They’re lucky it’s only going to take six weeks – how many years have the folks of Mull being waiting to get the Craignure linkspan sorted?

Apologies, Sokay, but I don’t understand your post; perhaps you would care to translate?
