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?

  • SNP lose another Argyll & Bute councillor
    John Semple.
    What a lot of nonsense.
    From memory you were very keen on the use of video conferencing for Argyll & Bute Council meetings to save money.
    As soon as the 2012 elections were over and your party were in power as part of a coalition they was no more mention about video conferencing from you.
    In fact you even had the nerve to pay a visit to Islay to see what happened on the island and paid a visit to the monthly meeting of the Islay Community Council to justify you staying overnight on Islay and having a night’s DB&B at the council taxpayers expense.
    Islay Community Council meetings are held on a Monday night at 7pm.
    There was no need for John Semple to visit Islay at the Argyll & Bute council taxpayers expense because he had previously visited Islay at MAKI meetings.
  • The Union, the young, reform and the pound are the gold in the embers of indy
    In today’s Dundee Courier there is an article which states that the voters living in the housing schemes of Kirkton and Whitfield where most residents are unemployed voted Yes.
    This is probably because they believed all the nonsense that Salmond, Swinney, Sturgeon and Sheriden told them that in an independent Scotland everything would be wonderful.
    Of course this is total nonsense as in an independent Scotland VAT of at least 15% would be charged on transport, food, children’s clothes, books and newspapers.
    The VAT charged on domestic electricity, gas and heating oil bills would increase from 5% to at least 15%.
  • Salmond departure only hope for healing in Scotland – successor cannot be Sturgeon
    Alex Salmond should have resigned with immediate effect but there is no chance of that happening.
    Salmond still wants to be able to “lord it” at the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles next week as First Minister of Scotland.
  • Salmond departure only hope for healing in Scotland – successor cannot be Sturgeon
    Sokay.
    I totally agree with you as I know to my cost exactly what Michael Russell is like.
    On 22nd March 2014 Michael Russell had a letter published in the Ileach complaining about me and quoting my name because he (Russell) did not like me writing anti-independence letters to the Ileach.
    Michael Russell’s view is that it is his way or no way!
    The letter that Michael Russell had published in the Ileach was a very bad move by him as I promptly sent Michael Russell an email telling a few home truths including his failure to act on the dental crisis on Islay which is currently still on going.
  • Salmond departure only hope for healing in Scotland – successor cannot be Sturgeon
    Mike Russell has been a disaster as MSP for Argyll & Bute as he acts like a bully.

  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?
