Comment posted NeverSeconds: time to let Martha Payne recover anonymity by Jnr Tick.
That’s interesting Ronnie, I too would like know why this is the case. When you say ‘quite diffferent’ can you elaborate? Are those meals on the island more nutritious, do they look more appetising? is there more choice? larger portions? Of course, these opinions on meals are all subjective as quality, how appetising etc. are not particularly easy to quantify.

- There appear to be two parties at fault in this debacle, A&B Council and a few national rags who are deviod of the ability to be reasoned and impartial. I think it was pretty obvious why these newspapers were so selective in portraying this situation in such a sensationalist and negative light, it suits their political agendas at the expense of a very well meaning child not to mention staff who prepare and cook meals with the budgets they have year in year out. This ban on photographing meals in the dinner hall could surely have been reversed without all the hype and mass media attention had the individual who made this decision appreciated that censorship, especially of an extremely productive and as mentioned well meaning child is something alien to Scotland. Maybe the staff at the school could have been given more reassurance that they were not at risk of losing their jobs, that it was merely reckless and thoughtless media attention. How refreshing to see Councillor McCuish on TV this morning holding his hands up admitting A&B Council had got it wrong, a rare thing in politics these days be it local or National. If only more politicians would do the same considering the gravity and serious repercussions of some mistakes made. Instead we get the usual predictable spin applied to their faux pas, shifting the blame.

- Promising start for Kezia Dugdale on North Sea oil as SNP front bench reverts to Salmond’s schoolyard
Richard says, “The sooner the SNP have to produce policies, implement them and let the public judge them the better, the days of blaming Westminster are numbered”.
If the following aren’t policies what are they?
1.Creating more jobs here in Scotland is a top priority for the SNP. Our policies include:
2.Supporting Scotland’s Small Businesses – We will protect the Small Business Bonus, ensuring £450 million of support for the small businesses that form the lifeblood of local economies. The small business bonus has saved jobs in the downturn and create jobs in the recovery.
3.Action on Youth Unemployment – We will provide support for 125,000 modern apprenticeships over the lifetime of the Parliament and a commitment that every 16-19 year old in Scotland not in work, part of a Modern Apprenticeship scheme or receiving education is offered a learning or training opportunity.
4.Growing the Green Economy – Scotland is leading the world in offshore renewable technologies and the SNP will continue to support the rapid growth of this sector. The National Renewables Infrastructure Fund will help leverage private investment into Renewables, part of over £200 million of investment in Renewables.
5.Improve Connectivity – we will invest in the electrification of the central Scotland rail network, reducing journey times between Glasgow and Edinburgh to just over 30 minutes. And our plans include the rapid expansion of high-speed broadband so Scots can take full advantage of our new digital age.
6.Protecting family budgets – At a time of inflation, higher VAT and sky-high fuel prices we will continue to protect family budgets here in Scotland by freezing the Council Tax. We have also removed prescription charges, saving people with long-term health conditions £180.
Might it be fair to deduce that your views/opinions on national politics expressed here are brutally tainted by your blind hatred of Scotland’s Party?
- Argyll & Bute MSP reacts to Council’s wrecking ball on community ownership of Castle Toward
Our Cowal community and as our MSP correctly points out, those who have for some time put in the ground work to try and make the buy-out happen for the benefit of our community are the real losers in all of this, not to mention tax payers. Funding the continued existence of what will be, whilst waiting for that elusive buyer, a decaying building and grounds seems so futile should the ambition and foresight of those involved in the buy-out be thwarted.
Am I the only one who think there is something far more sinister behind this entire debacle than what appears to be the excuse of hanging off for more money for Toward? Madness in today’s climate where property and the construction trade have yet to recover fully from years of recession. Can’t see developers clambering over each other to pay the sum requested.

What’s wrong or worthy of chuckling about an oil fund? What in my post do you disagree with regarding trading prices of natural commodities?

Anyway, are you suggesting terrorism isn’t the biggest threat to the civilised world?
What part do nuclear weapons have to play in this and can you or your Westminster government justify the spending of obscene amounts of cash to renew Trident in todays austere climate and if so, for how much longer.
The world will always carry threats to our safety, are possessing nuclear weapons going to make us any safer from new threats?

Why do you continue to communicate with ‘fools’ then?
Might I suggest you ignore me, don’t waste your time even reading ‘fools’ posts. skip by, much more productive and a better use of your time?
Do you have anything constructive to comment on rather than resorting to insults. If my opinions and/or arguments are so weak your counter arguments rather than slurs should be sufficient in exposing my input surely?
