Did the Princess Royal remember to curtsey?

  • I wonder what has happened to ‘good old Kintyre 1′?
  • ‘Illegal’ – needing planning permission? libellous? packed with porkies? – we need enlightenment.

    Five hundred 20 ton truck loads of concrete? for each foundation? – are you sure about that, JB?

    ‘…after which it will be decommissioned if it is not repowered.’ – I get the impression that there is every likelihood that turbines will be replaced, with more efficient and/or larger machines, maybe well within their 25 year lifespan; the history of Gigha’s community turbines, bought second hand from the Haverigg 1 site in Cumbria with eight years’ design life remaining, points to this.

    A lot of people would doubtless think ‘what real harm is one wind farm in such an enormous landscape?’
    The wind farms in Argyll are mostly widely scattered and generally not ‘in your face’ except for a few unlucky people living in relatively remote places – nothing like the massed ranks of turbines lording it over each side of the M74 around Beattock.
    But go up into the Argyll hills and the perception is rather different – venture up to the An Suidhe wind farm above the A83 near Auchindrain, or to the Meall Mor telecoms cluster above the A83 between Ardrishaig and Tarbert, and you might be surprised at how many giants are lurking in the hills and that’s without contemplating the sort of ‘infill’ that the big boys are planning for the Kilduskland hills around the back of Ardrishaig.
    So I think that one windfarm encroaching on the wide open Rannoch landscape is one too many, that the government has to understand that in some areas enough is enough.

    Barking’s the word for it.

    I think there were indications of that ‘trend’ in the way that dear Donald Trump’s plans for the Menie dunes were ‘enabled’ – and far more recently and closer to home, the manipulation of Argyll & Bute councillors.

  1. Don;t know. Probably no more than exhausted campaigners throwing everything at it in the last day, with helpers who stick things up all over the place.

  2. Is it fair to publish something that is only heresay about two candidates, whoever they are? If you don’t have a clue what has happened why bother saying anything – unless, of course, you have a personal bias.

  3. See what happened there Lowry??

    Newsie comes on with a non-story – non attributed, no quotes and no evidence. You ask a more than reasonable question and the next two posters – Crazy and Stepehen ignore your poiint and comment on the Newsie’s non-story.

    Gawd help us all if these half-wit zealots get in…

    • Unionist posters?
      What are those?
      And does your correspondent, echoes of good old kintyre1, have any substantive evidence to support his implied charge?

    • It happens in the Dunoon and Cowal area also.

      We know who does it but they come out with excuses like “do you have substantive evidence to support this implied charge” or “it wisnae me, a big boy done it and ran away”

      But guess what? Their posters stay up!!!!

    • No, Simon
      That’s what Lowry meant.
      Pay attention, please.

      On second thoughts, the “Burn them!” should be deleted for Health and Safety reasons

  4. Pending the announcement of what constitutes an illegal election poster, a light-hearted post was responded to with a light hearted comment.

    In future such comments will be marked JOKE, to help those with a irony deficiency.

    Serious comments will be marked SERIOUS, to help those with a reality deficiency.

  5. 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?

  6. Stpehen – but if you mark them JOKE – then they are supposed to be funny!!!

    The ‘light-hearted post’ and ‘light hearted comment’ were about as funny as week in jail.

    Have a good day :)

  7. Yes, Simon appears to have fallen into my troll-pit. Can I refer him to the sage advice of that great actor, Whil Wheaton?

    FWIW, outside my polling station in Helensburgh today posters for Dance, Mulvaney and Robb, but not anyone else. Also bonus sighting of Mulvaney wandering down the street, looking a little lost.
