A bit unfair, B2. Simon’s reply was posted before newsy posted the update.

- Michael Russell looks like the first SNP MSP to put a personal Plan B into action
I’m glad you “like stating ForArgyll is impartial and reports news.”
But we knew that anyway. Thanks
- Terrifying near miss on London tube’s Northern Line on Monday evening
Is it perhaps time for us to have thumbs up/down for news stories? Or is this going too far?
Perhaps 3 thumbs – Like, Dislike, Irrelevant (to the reviewer)
- International fleet of classic Fife yachts to create a July sailing spectacle on Argyll’s secret coast
I’m a (sort of) internet punctuation bigot, and in this case Neil was absolutely correct – a short, enthusiastic comment in ALL CAPS.
(And I’m a sailor too, if you hadn’t guessed)
- Why has UK Borders Force changed immigration rules for cruise passengers?
So, how many Immigration Officers (and their associated desks) are going to turn up at Oban to disembark 2000+ passengers? 2? – even 20 means each one processes 100 passengers. And then hang about all day, because, unlike an airport, the cruisers don’t all disembark on arrival.
They don’t all go back on board. Some will take taxi or hire car to meet up with the liner at a later port.
- Scotland said to lack systems to maintain safe road markings
I don’t often agree with Simon but…
I went looking for NRSMA, and the report.
I found no National RSMA, but found RSMA
It’s a commercial organisation, supporting its members.
When you look at the “About” section, it’s very much about.
The organisation … promoting the industry as a whole and the collective interests of its members.
The RSMA’s team … support its members.
…providing a base for discussion, training and standards that help to ensure the health and safety of operators and to develop a highly trained, fully-qualified workforce
The report itself
is very much Highways Agency (Eng, Wales) based, with a couple of scathing paragraphs on Scotland towards the end (but no Argyll roads get specific mention)
The contact detail on the report is not RSMA itself, but a London PR company – Hadstrong
Style: Confidently creates punchy media stories on minuscule budgets
Skill: devises PR campaigns to give clients a share of voice in the media that outstrips their marketing spend ten-fold and changes their status in their industry
So, an on the ball, effective pressure group, deploying good resources. But, the term “vested interest” could apply.
Comment. If you’re driving at night, and can’t see where the road goes, slow down.
If you really really want the specs for road marking, it’s a 30 page pdf
I think it’s up to date, the previous version was TD26/05
