I wonder what has happened to ‘good old Kintyre 1′?

  • Did the Princess Royal remember to curtsey?
  • ‘Illegal’ – needing planning permission? libellous? packed with porkies? – we need enlightenment.

  • Gigha community ownership on brink of failure
    Longshanks, I don’t know enough about Gigha to make any comment at all, save for observing that you, as an enthusiastic user of this blog, are an unpleasant little hypocrite.
  • Public consultation for Tarbert on pedestrian facilities for A83 through the town
    Good news that the Barmore Road / Harbour Street junction pedestrian problem is being addressed.
    Travelling up Barmore Road in a Citylink bus also demonstrates another (less dangerous but very tedious) problem, where the A83 of standard 5.5m width is routed through an urban area involving pavements, kerbs and stormwater drains in the edge of the road.
    In both Tarbert and Arrochar these storm drains are set lower than the road surface, so that buses and HGVs are forced to bump their way along the road if they’re to avoid colliding with oncoming traffic.
    And this in the country that once produced engineering innovation – and pioneering geniuses like John Loudon McAdam – pretty sad, really.
  • Gordon Brown to stand down from Westminster at General Election
    Well said, Integrity? – and it’s a sad fact that there was a surfeit of ‘tiring and childish abuse’ in the lead-up to the referendum.
    The endless chanting of ‘bitter together’ was enough to put me right off voting yes, and political debate does seem to bring out the worst in some people and polarise issues to an extent beyond childish.
  • Ferry schedule for Ullapool during harbour upgrade works with enhanced services to come
    I must be missing something – plenty of photos, but not of the bow ramp, and it doesn’t seem to feature anywhere in the videos.
  • Hazard warning lights on A83 for Rest and Be Thankful
    I’d like to suggest that Transport Scotland invest in one more wig-wag sign warning of potential trouble on the Rest & be Thankful, to be sited at the entrance to the Holyrood parliament, as a reminder to our dear MSPs of what’s going on in the real world.

  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.
