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.

“The intelligent option would be to shelve the egos and not hold these glorifying contests at all. They are usually ill-chaired, evasive, personality-driven and deceiving”
This isn’t the point in your article but Yes they offer little in way of enlightening the unenlightened. Good capable challenging interviewers can prize more lines for us to read between from politicians than the combative stone throwing of politician v politician.
- Lifeline for wildlife – 5p per carrier bag in Scotland from today
People who believe consumers as a result of this new law having to take more responsibility when purchasing goods when faced with what to do with disposable bags, people now encouraged to recycle, to make a start to realising and understanding the consequences of our wasteful throw away society are “tree huggers”?
I am fully behind this law and the only criticism I’d aim in the direction of this government is what kept them. The small charge will be little deterrent for many but if it gets some questioning why it has been introduced then for them to consider being a more thoughtful ethical consumer then it’s a winner in my book.

- Fight for SNP Deputy Leader pits future against past
Newsie, looking forward as you put it will inevitably involve another independence referendum regardless of who becomes Deputy FM.
I’d be interested to see anything which would help substantiate your claim that Stuart Hosie is “anti-English”, quite an accusation but not unsurprising coming from you tbh. We’ve been subject to some inaccurate downright nasty accusations before during now after this referendum.
Had you played this referendum with a straight bat instead of the hyperbolic smears directed and delivered with needle and detestation at those who opposed your view during this democratic choice we faced you stood a chance of retaining a larger readership than what you have today.
This site has lost many contributors that it needn’t have. Few of us, I would expect, have problems with this site’s right to have an editorial stance on independence, however, to make a comparison, I know of absolutely nobody who does support independence that purchases the Daily Mail for reasons such as their vulgar taunts about Alex Salmond and his wife being childless to name one off the top of my head. These same people are quite content to purchase many of the other anti-independence newspapers for the reason that most of the tabloids and broadsheets available do not allow a hatred for their opponents (SNP & YES supporters) cause to poison their entire output.
Still, maybe FA doesn’t need it’s share of contributors from almost half of the electorate.
