She had to slay the ghost of Alex …

Comment posted Sturgeon’s personality cult campaign an unavoidable decoy duck by Scotnat.

She had to slay the ghost of Alex S. Hence the personality-cult presentation, and her plea for a personal mandate.

She makes NO commitment to IndyRef(2) . She make no reference to Independence in her VISION statement .You have to wait to page 25 of a 76 page document to find the most oblique reference to a referendum. It is couched in the catch-all of politicians “I believe” Any lawyer will tell any SNP zealot ‘belief’ commits a politician, and a political party to diddly squat.

    Not a bleat. Scottish Govt Ferry provision has a problem

    I suggest you re-read the SNP’s manifesto of promises for the 2014 Referendum, to correct your obvious ignorance of what the SNP pledged it would offer an Independent Scotland re Ferry service provision. The SNP only pledged to deliver its 2012 Ferry Plan . That makes no offer of 24 hr services
    on summer routes. SNP government is currently failing to deliver its 2012 Ferry Plan.

    Accepting your premis that a 24 hr ferry service would be a ‘given’ in an Independent Scotland, it would appear from this article by Alex Neil, (Former SNP cabinet Minister) this gonna be a long timing coming, if ever.

    Oh ..and by the way ….Norway’s coastal ferries, unlike Scotland’s, are NOT run, and owned by the State

  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    How come, on Monday, Calmac announce that the MV Isle of Arran will be re-deployed to the Islay service from Tuesday, yet very early Tuesday morning sail MV Hebridean Isles from Greenock with repairs completed. Meanwhile MV Arran does not move from the Clyde, and goes back on the Arran service!

    This suggests woeful ship-management.

  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    It has taken going into the 3rd week of chaos on the Islay route for Calmac /Scottish Transport to get round to implementing a credible option to minimise disruption.And what is it? To run the MV Finlaggan round the clock, on a 24 hour service. Does it take an Einstein to come up this plan of action? NO. Instead Islay was offered a slow speed log- transporter which could only operate in benign sea conditions .

    If a Calmac ferry can operate 24 hrs a day in these circumstances, why can’t the Calmac network operate its major routes on a round the clock basis particularly during Summer peak periods,similar to Norway?

  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    And now the MV Lochinvar is out of service due to a technical issue with her propulsion system

    Is this fleet breakdown a statistical co-incidence, or due to poor planned maintenance management ?

    And not a senior SNP MP or MSP marching with them!!

    NS stayed away to recover from the YouGOV poll showing she still can’t win IndyRef(2).
