Comment posted Will a (subsidised?) £10k buy SPR calmer waters in Tiree? by Alex McKay.
But then, Malcolm, as I understand it, not everyone on Tiree will be “fighting” SPR in a Court of Law, so if your advice is adopted, those who won’t be doing so can have a larger share!

- Karl, the 10k is not being offered to all the islanders – “Works out at 12.8pounds for each islander” – but specifically to those who want to gain qualifications, so dividing the sum by the number of islanders is the sort of ungrateful response that I’m sure those hoping to benefit from the money will find particularly unhelpful.

Mel, you complain about a silence to any comment you make, this time referring to fishing. Studies by reputable scientists published in peer-reviewed journals, rather than opinions of animal rightists such as yourself, show that fish don’t feel pain – their brains do not contain the necessary neocortex. While a continuing debate is fine, the use of emotive language – “blood sport”, “mutilation” – is perhaps the main reason why you get so few responses.

Marine Conservation Orders like this don’t have to immediately specify the details of the problem that they are acting to prevent. The whole point of them is to act and act quickly. These orders are reviewed by ministers at intervals and can be discarded or kept. In some cases, the person affected can apply for a local public inquiry to be held.
