Sorry I do not.
I was trying to broaden knowledge about Scotland for people who live in Argyll & Bute and beyond.

  • This is not a joke.
    Which is further west, Dundee or Carlise.
  • Mel.
    On the front page of today’s Dundee Courier there is an article headed “Games move, but it’s only by Inches”
    Perth Highland Games are moving from the South Inch to the North Inch because of the summer deluge.

    It is a trick question, but if you have never been to the City of Perth then it is unlikely that you will know the answer.
  • Mel.
    The answer is Perth because it lies between two inches, the North Inch and the South Inch.
  • Here is a question for all of you.
    Which is the smallest city in Scotland?

  • Salmond’s ‘sterlingisation’ Plan B1 would cause chaos as a transitional stop gap
    Willie is like most of the vociferous Yes Scotland campaigners. They love to dish it out but they cannot take criticism.
    Still no reply from Willie to Jamie Black’s post at 6.49am on 20th August 2014.

    Murdoch.
    You are obviously a Yes voter so perhaps you can explain why Alex Salmond and John Swinney want a currency union with the UK Pound, with the Bank of England setting the Scottish interest rates and Westminster setting the taxes for an independent Scotland.
    John Swinney keeps banging on about an independent Scotland being able to set its own interest rates and taxes yet with their favoured choice of Currency Union this is yet another myth from Salmond and Swinney.

    Murdoch.
    The stubborn antics of Putin are already hit his own people.
    Due to Putin banning the imports of food from the EU prices for perishable goods have risen by 10% in place such as St Petersburg.
    Putin and his favoured friends will be OK because they will still get their imported goods whilst the general public in Russia will suffer.
    The separists in Eastern Ukraine will soon realise that the Russian Motherland is not the land of milk and honey and they are better off remaining part of Ukraine.
  • One month to go and in one day – Scottish Government announces almost £7 million of community funding
    Michael Russell might as well become First Minister because he has been hopeless as a MSP for Argyll & Bute.
    Here in Islay we have not a full time replacement for our dentist since he retired on 19th December 2013.
    Numerous patients have not had an annual dental check up as no new appointments have been allocated since June 2013.
    My wife and I have not had an annual dental check up for almost 18 months despite the laid down maximum period for an annual dental check up being 15 months.
    If it was a private company currently running the dentist service on Islay Michael Russell would be screaming for the company to be taken to court for failing to meet their contract.
    However because NHS Highland are responsible and Health which is devolved to the Scottish Parliament is one of the SNP flagship policies Michael Russell has done nothing about it.

    NCH.
    Please explain how the lights are going to stay on when it is a cloudy calm day in Scotland.
    I will give you the answer.
    Fergus Ewing the SNP Energy Minister has granted Torness and Hunterston B nuclear power stations a 7 year extension from 2016 to 2023 to continue producing nuclear electricity to keep the lights on in Scotland. He has also stated that he would not object to further 7 year extension until 2030.
    Therefore Alex Salmond’s statement that all electricity produced in Scotland 2020 will 100% renewable is another myth.
    No doubt by 2020 Wee Eck will be including nuclear electricity produced by Torness and Hunterston B as 100% renewable!

  1. I am surprised that there are not more serious accidents on the A85 from Tyndrum to Dalmally as motor bikers seem to think that they are a law unto themselves.
    Whilst driving on this stretch of the A85 especially during the summer months I see motor bikers weaving amongst the traffic and overtaking on blind corners. It is no wonder that this road is often closed due to accidents.
    With any road it is not the road that is dangerous it is the people using it that cause the accidents. You cannot have accidents if the road has no vehicles on it.

    • True, some drivers behave like lunatics, but not true that ‘it’s not the road that’s dangerous’ – there are places in Argyll where the road configuration is very clearly unsafe. And what’s this about ‘you cannot have accidents if the road has no vehicles on it’ – do you think roads are for decoration only? – this reminds me of days gone by in the Middle East, when there were suspicions that strangers were sometimes found guilty of causing accidents on the principle that if they hadn’t been there the driver on the wrong side of the road would still be alive.

    • Presumably they weren’t, but the criticism of bikers is fair comment – some of the ‘bike packs’ that come out in good summer weather do behave like absolute lunatics, without any doubt whatsoever. So, of course, do some car drivers.

  2. Regardless of whom was to blame, one of my colleagues was involved in this accident. Let’s pray that both drivers recover from this tragic incident. My thoughts are with you both.

  3. People say that the A9 from Perth to Thurso is a killer road but this is only because motorists take un-necessary risks to try to reach their destination a few minutes earlier.

    • It’s not as simple as that, is it? Aren’t people usually referring to the stretch from Perth to Inverness, where part of the problem seems to be the way that the road switches repeatedly between single and dual carriageways.

  4. Most people wrongly assume that it is the stretch from Perth to Inverness but there have also been serious accidents on the Inverness to Thurso section.
    I could have just mentioned Perth to Inverness but no doubt someone trying to clever would have stated that the A9 started in the City of Perth and finished in Thurso.

    • That’s an unfair question for the rest of us since Bobby Wakeham has a permanent direct link to Wikipedia (how else can he authoratively comment on so many issues?).
      Anyone back to Stirling for me now (oops).

    • Ah right! It’s a play on words. I can’t quite get the hang of the limey sense of humour, but full marks for what is clearly a very funny joke. Got any others?
