Comment posted Council issues prompt response on Martha Payne’s NeverSeconds clampdown by Lundavra.
The World At One beat BBC Scotland with the retraction, they were told in an interview that the ban on photography was immediately revoked but BBC Scotland only added it on the end of their report five or ten minutes later.

- “National press” seems to be just the Daily Record, have any other newspapers tried to blame the dinner ladies.
The people of Argyll (and further afield) should follow the Merseyside example and have a boycott of the Daily Record (perhaps until they give a very large donation to Mary’s Meals as an apology)?

- Perspectives on TV debates for the 2015 General Election campaign
They could always allow each party with candidates in the election to have a short broadcast at peak times, they could be called Party Election Broadcasts. This would give them a good opportunity to get their policies over to the electorate without the inconvenience of interviewers asking awkward questions.
Ooooops we already have that and very few people watch them!
I suspect many other countries, that are given as examples of places where they have debates, do not have an equivalent of the Party Election Broadcast hence the need for debates there. Access to TV will often depend on being able to afford adverts.
- Ungritted A83 sees multiple vehicle offs
Argyll always seems to been poor at dealing with snow and ice. We used to go down into Argyll regularly from work and even back in the Strathclyde Region / Council days we used to used to regularly find that the roads in Argyll would have snow and ice on them but knew that if we could get back to the Region / Council boundary then we would be OK because more often than not they would clear once in Highland Region / Council.
It could be the same over Glencoe even though at that time the Scottish Office paid Highland and Argyll to the do the trunk routes.
The worst case I saw was once heading South, road was ‘black’ all the way up through Glencoe then at the boundary between Rannoch and Achallader there was a sharp transition from clear road to a couple of inches of untreated snow. A short distance past this there was a car off the road, the idiot had obviously driven straight into the snow at high speed.
It did not seem to change much after the demise of Strathclyde.
In the days of the council being contracted to do the A82 and other trunk routes, they seemed to have a bit of pride in keeping them open. There was a rivalry between the A82 and A9 in which would be first to reopen. I get the impression there is too much central control from the Traffic Scotland bunker and reliance on technology rather than experience. One year Islay ran out of salt / grit so just got sand off the beaches, it was quite effective.
- Sturgeon hammers nail in coffin of SNP hopes of coalition at Westmister
I can’t imagine a Conservative / Labour coalition. It would split both parties especially the hard left part of Labour and trade unions who virtually ‘own’ Labour.

Do you include the SNP Privy Counsellor as one of the ‘shower’.

The standards expected by sailors whilst ashore are likely to be very different to conference and convention delegates who are probably used to high quality hotel standard.
