Vivien Dance smiling benignly at the Princess Royal …

Comment posted Helensburgh candidates putting the rules back by PBP.

Vivien Dance smiling benignly at the Princess Royal as both stood on the Victoria Hall steps, as seen on the front page of the Helensburgh Advertiser, when Mrs Dance had been explicitly banned from the property because of the election ‘purdah’ – how does that shape up with the rules?

  • Helensburgh’s Colquhoun Square revision a continuing and maturing asset
    Not Council haters, Bob, just new Colquhoun Square haters. Helensburgh Civic Centre is a superb example of how to blend old and new; Colquhoun Square is a fine example of how not to.

    Not only are they already looking scruffy, you have to get on your knees to read the already fading text on these mini-monuments, which also provide the biggest obstacle course for the blind in the West of Scotland.

    What is already known locally as ‘the concrete jungle’ will be a complete eyesore in no time if the present level of non-maintenance is maintained..

    Too think we sacrificed a classic and beautiful Victorian town square for this!

  • Helensburgh’s Outdoor Museum shortlisted for FK Interior Design Award
    Can’t believe this waste of money is up for an award. You have to be on your knees to read any text on the plinths, and when you do it is material readily available from other sources. Meanwhile the plinths provide a massive obstacle course for the blind, scattered merrily around what has been turned into a totally sterile town square.
  • Tactical voting in Argyll and Bute: Alan Reid the most likely pro-union consensus candidate
    The SNP have also single-handedly destroyed Scotland’s licensed trade, restaurants, and private clubs with their grossly restrictive alcohol driving limit legislation, changing the pattern of life for so many who now do not bother to go out. Pubs and clubs are closing all over the place, and many more will follow.

    Yet another woeful decision from Argyll and Bute Council. I trust the Council will be fully responsible for any costs arising and that, as they are now responsible for enforcing parking regulations, they will be out in force to do so.

    Yet another blow to local commerce after the years of mismanagement of the CHORD project and other works. It is hard to imagine any town centre shops and businesses staying open that day.
