Comment posted A83 reopened now after closure for rta by Jade.
My sympathies to those involved – hope (possibly against hope) that injuries were minor.
Yet again, though, vast detours had to be put in place (also witness crash involving a coach 3 miles north of Invermoriston on A82 earlier, not to mention the A9 closure two weeks ago tomorrow with a double fatality). I should like to know when our Government is actually going to pay urgent attention to infrastructure outside the central belt?
I will no doubt antagonise SNP supporters by saying that, whereas I previously supported independence, I feel that the more rural and remote areas of Scotland would find themselves in an identical situation with an independent Scotland as the present situation in England (and indeed GB) – i.e. London/SEcentric. Believe me, the English saying about ignoring anything “north of the Watford gap” is not a joke! I fear we will see a repetition here in Scotland come independence. Politicians are the same everywhere,just with varying degrees.

Does this mean no more bunkhouse facilities?
- First Minister’s choice not to condemn mob behaviour proves Farage point
Sorry, but I have to back up Keith McMillan. I know both Brum and Leeds and there are no go areas. I was never bothered in the slightest until I had to spend 2 years of hell in the latter. The intimidation was astonishing, even in broad daylight in major shopping areas. Even when we could stand it no more, the bullying and threats received when selling my property and Asian families wanted to move in resulted in police action when two males of the family trapped me in the garage and grabbed hold of me telling me to sell. That resulted in police action. Sadly, the behaviour of these people reflects badly on those (such as our little local store) Asians more than willing to integrate and work hard.
I support no political party so have no axe to grind. It may be that Scotland is lucky in that it has not seen these no go areas and immigrants are more willing to integrate.
As far as this debacle is concerned, I don’t think any of the parties behaved well, but I was shocked by Mr Salmond’s attitude.

Not strictly accurate, Lynda, quite possible to go Crianlarich, Lix Toll, Lochearnhead, Callendar and then take your choice.

What does anyone expect? We’re not central belt; train journeys and links are abysmal – especially if you’re on an island.
It would be really good if one had mobile phone coverage, let alone Wi-Fi and decent broadband would be appreciated – especially by those who pay but can’t get a reliable service!
- Search stood down for missing fishing boat and one man crew
If this is accurate, then I would hope that, like me,readers will offer their condolences to family and friends of the fisherman lost.
News like this puts the sick saga of A&BC politics to shame.
