Comment posted Jackie Baillie MSP calls on SPT to ‘get a grip’ on Kilcreggan ferry situation by Robert Wakeham.
‘There is a government policy that SPT must provide services to the community’ – it’s not that long ago that some of the SPT leadership seemed more focused on providing services to themselves, and can anyone tell me whether there’s been a thorough cleanout of this authority? Is it now fit for purpose, and capable of rising to the challenge of doing more than just ‘managing’ the decline of a potentially very valuable ferry system?

- And if there’s a risk of a mooring rope violently parting (as reported above), and you’re anywhere near it, you could literally lose your head.
- How on earth can three people ‘dislike’ this account of what happened – do they think it’s untrue?
- Jackie Baillie MSP is a well regarded and canny politician, but is her plea for the SPT to ‘get a grip’ realistic, or should it be a plea to the Holyrood government to face up to the need to get a very firm (and reforming) grip on SPT itself?

I wonder if next year’s introduction of much stricter anti-pollution laws to enforce the use of low sulphur marine diesel fuel oil will increase the costs of ‘traditional’ ferries and make more sense of the economics of the new hybrids?

You, and Andrew Argyle, might have a point – John Sinclair’s posts (remember him?) were very evangelistic, and I think that he probably represented a substantial body of the nationalist mindset.

And all because local councillors choose to identify themselves with national party politics.
