Comment posted NeverSeconds: time to let Martha Payne recover anonymity by newsroom.
This is a difficult one, Michael, a matter of fine judgment which we hope we’ve got as right as we can.
You’ll have noticed that we have not published anything on the blog itself.
Mary’s Meals thank you from the children of Lirangwe Primary in Malawi for the unexpected manna made possible by the funding the blog has generated requires to be made public.
The professional public sector PR consultant’s evaluation of Argyll and Bute Council’s press release on Friday morning was a study of incapable public communications – an issue of general concern in relation to the council’s capability.
And the song is a classic example of creative subversion. We feel that the repeated sound of the sung words ‘Argyll and Bute’ have made the name a toxic brand and foresee a swift move to Argyll and the Isles. (But only, we hope, when the product has reached a point of evolution where it does not intoxicate another brand.)

- Martha’s father is quoted in the national press today as confirming she will continue her NeverSeconds blog.
- Of course they are and of course we do. Have we said otherwise?
But this does have to come to an end sometime.
The end of the school year and Mary’s Meals helped as hugely as they’ve been could not provide a better punctuation mark.
It’s called ‘an exit strategy’.

- Decoding Helensburgh’s Colquhoun Square: Comet I or Comet II?
Had you made your suggestion on the lighting design for the square to Councillor Petrie who might then have taken if forwards at council level and become singularly associated with it through that process?
We should make it clear that it is popular received perception that associates Councillor Petrie with the ‘Comet’ lights, rather than any claim made by the man himself.
It would be very interesting to know of your complete plans for the lighting of the Square and the thinking behind what you had intended.
- SNP Deputy Leader candidates set out their stalls
It may be that this is an issue Mr Brown has not fully thought through.
He does seem the most capable candidate and the most progressive one.
- Lifeline for wildlife – 5p per carrier bag in Scotland from today
Evidently all ‘single use’ bags carry the levy, regardless of the material form which they are made – paper, plastic or recyclables.
But hygiene related bags – as for bread and cakes, for dirty products [eg with soil attached] and for medicines, are levy free.
We’ve not seen anything yet on take away food packaging, like polystyrene fish and chip or pizza boxes.
- Between earth and heaven: Anthony Gormley’s Another Place
The theft of the Moore from Little Sparta was numbing.
Are the gardens at Portrack House open to the public? Jencks’ work is glorious.
- Robert Wakeham: What’s cooking around our coasts?
This is not a speculative but a factual piece.
The single sentence for which there is no documented back up is a question not a statement. This is on what could possibly explain Oceanic Pintail’s highly unusual behaviour about 10 miles off the north coast.
She had been in Scrabster. She left, following the northerly track Mr Wakeham describes towards the point of access to Scapa Flow from the wes; tand then turned sharply SW, levelling out to begin her strange sequence.
She made three successive return passes between Cape Wrath and Brims Ness at steady speed and then went back in to Scrabster.
This part of her task was a ‘test run’ for what?
The question needs to be asked and there is no straightforward reason why the answer cannot be given.
