Where’s the SNP guy on here who prophesied a $60 barrel by New Year? Were there bets involved? It’s only at $55 but it’s a bit more complicated than that.
Back then a $35 barrel was worth £25 in confetti money.
Today a $55 barrel is worth £44.50 of Brexit Pounds.
At the rate pertaining when the bets were placed that would be almost $63.

  • If you can’t see that all the lies are coming from the Clinton/Obama camp and the lunatics that think they can push American voters back from their choice of The Donald as their Leader to drain the swamp, then you do not understand that the US voters, ably assisted by social media, especially Wikileaks, are riding back to power on a wave of truth.
    You need to stop watching and listening to the lies of the MSM, the people have found them out as voter events in England, the US and soon in many EU nations are hopefully going to result in a clearing out of the stables. It won’t be easy but the truth will overcome.
  • It sounds crazy to a dependent. To the rest the world is their oyster. The Scottish Government’s support for the third runway at Heathrow makes me wonder if they are not dependent as well.
  • The No Generation got a rude awakening when the new, real world dawned on September 19th 2014. Many of them have now developed into the Yes Generation. Time is a very elastic element.
  • After all the years of Labour, and their prestitutes, spreading unfounded lies about Scotland and it’s party of choice there are still many who just can’t help themselves and jump in feet first.
    Wings, as always, make mincemeat of their pathetic stories. They actually show that the cost of powerless Scots MP’s totally unnecessary travel to Westminster has reduced since the Unionist MP’s wipe out by the voters.
  • Well! Well! Well! It looks like there must have been some massive manipulating going on here with likes and dislikes, or has some hacker got inside the site?

  • SNP MP backs call for CalMac to put MV Coruisk back on Mallaig-Armadale service – and is to go direct to the Transport Minister
    If we step back 12 months and apply your 1:8 slipway solution, then it should be built on Mull and the Coruisk could be returned to where she was designed to operate.

    You may have your finger on the pulse there Scott.
    The people of Sleat and their MP were up in arms again this week with the arrival there of the Loch Fyne from Lochaline-Fishnish. She has been there in the past doing relief work and since she went up there this week she has been alongside both link-spans one time only at each.
    She still hasn’t been for her annual refit so I’m wondering if they are planning changes to her ramps that might work better at the lower tides that were causing the problems this summer.
    Another interesting thing happened this afternoon. The Isle of Lewis was storm bound in Oban so she went and spent half an hour at Craignure. At the time there was 2 Mtrs of a falling tide above chart datum, I’m not sure what the minimum depth is there or if it could be dredged deeper if required.
    There seem to be a lot of balls in the air, as they say, and it may be that Coruisk might return home next summer.
  • New Transport Minister humiliates CalMac MD
    I see the Heb Isles has returned to Cammel Lairds. She left there on the morning tide with destination Oban but she’s spent all day dodging off the coast and has gone back in on the tide and is now going back into the outer basin. She’s supposed to be taking over a route tomorrow, I wonder if it’s Craignure? The LOTI was meant to come back to South Uist/Mallaig at the weekend and Isle of Arran would have moved to Oban with the Heb Isles doubling up on Islay. I hope the Isle of Mull is not booked in at another dock or there could be contract problems if she can’t be released.
  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    From reading the winter timetables it would appear that the LOTI is going to be away from 9th Nov. During the 3 weeks from that date the relief ferry will go to Oban instead of Mallaig.
    In the initial notice about changes to the Lewis Freight they give times for Sunday night. They now give notice that it will not run tomorrow for operational reasons, which probably means the delays being experienced in repairing the Isle of Arran.
    They know that they can cover Barra with extending the Mallaig service to Barra and doing night runs from Oban with Clansman if push comes to shove.
    Someone will need to write a book about the Isle of Arran’s troubles.
  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    Yes, I see that the Calmac Islay page has gone double amber some time today with the Heb Isles going on the SY freight run. I’d have thought they would have posted that information earlier if it had always been the plan.
    If Lord of the Isles is also going to dry dock at the same time as Loch Seaforth, they’ll be struggling for a few weeks.
