For Bob Hove: Read it again. We said nothing nor do we feel anything at all derogatory about the crew or the ship – each of which we support and admire (although we except the MoD’s procurement processes from our admiration and support).

This article is about the political machinations that, unless we are very lucky, will lead us into an unnecessary and manufactured war with Iran.

  • Triumph for Helensbugh CHORD as Summer Festival gets going
    We weren’t talking about the Summer Festival – which we have not experienced – but about the successful work being done under the CHORD project – which is demonstrably making it possible for folk to use the town in a more relaxed and congenial way.
    Of course it would have been better if the Colquhoun Square revision had been entirely completed – but with a full half finished – which alone offers a substantial area of very attractive public space, it’s not been a bad compromise.
    And next year should be firing on four.
  • The view from the Shard’s Floor 68
    The walkie-talkie Mobile Phone building’s ‘Disneyland’ theming could be the prompt for more of the same.
    Who wants the capital city to look like a theme park?

    And it doesn’t have to cost any more.
    It would have to make the council gardeners’ jobs more interesting – and why not an annual competition for them, recognising their skills and what they bring to where we live?
  • Anas Sarwar: on the indyref bus with Labour on the move
    For information, the indyref bus is laid out as a mobile office, with pairs of double seats facing each other across a table. It is not laid out for mass passenger carrying; and when we were on it to interview Anas Sarwar, it was a very busy place. It has to be. Labour is fighting for its own national survival in the indy war. See: http://forargyll.com/2014/07/the-people-and-the-election-issues-the-scottish-affairs-committee-ignored/
  • Triumph for Helensbugh CHORD as Summer Festival gets going
    Didn’t even know this, Graeme. We were trying to avoid photographing the unfinished upper half of the square and concentrate on the completed lower half – which really is doing the business.
    Will enjoy dropping in for a cuppa next time around.

  4. Hi Chaps re dispatch of HMS Daring to the Iranian Gulf…unless I mis-read it, found your report on this subject highly offensive and an insult to the brave women and men who are prepared to risk life and limb on our behalf.

    Daring was built in Scotland and is based in my home town Portsmouth.

    Just thought I had to say something about this

    Bob, Hove

  5. I just wanted to express my sadness at hearing that Margaret Annfield, Co-ordinator of the North Argyll Car Scheme had passed away.

    This lady helped make my life as a long distance carer much easier and my mum would not have been able to attend hospital and doctor’s appointments without this invaluable service. Sadly residents living in rural parts of Argyll often find themselves severely disadvantaged because of their location. The North Argyll Car Scheme has helped to go some way to remedy this.

    My mum and I will always be grateful to Margaret for setting up this invaluable service – as we are to the many selfless volunteers who continue to keep it running today.

  6. Your servers need looking at.

    Response times are becoming very slow from any of the fibre optic connections I use in West London.
