Comment posted What’s a fibreoptic cable doing lying on a beach anyway? by Mike Story.
I am concerned that given the importance of this cable, and the fact that it linked in the personal alarm call systems for over 200 vunerable elderly folks, that there was no back up system. Even a well buried cable can be the target of thieves..in this case dumb ones, so if vital services are at risk a surely it would make sense to have a more robust back up system…there are a lot of remote homes in this area.

A big thanks to all at Inveraray last night especially Sally and Noel for all the hard and tasty work. Thanks to their Graces the Duke and Duchess of Argyll for giving The Mull and Iona Food cooperative a chance to show people just how good our food is.
- BBC indy debate: incoherent uncontrolled unedifying bear pit
I suspect that the great swathe of undecided voters were not watching the debate, rather they were tuned into Netflix or watching the latest offering from the Jeremy Kyle show.
- The debate: Darling’s finest moment – ‘Cometh the hour, cometh the man’
I felt the debate was akin to two bald men fighting over a comb. No matter which side of the debate you are on, these two overfed, over privileged political dinosaurs remind us that the political system hasn’t changed.
A poor draw
Scotland deserves better.
