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.

  • Professor James Hunter on land reform in Scotland
    Absolutely.
    Land reform – however this version works out – can make little measureable difference to the Scottish economy; nor will it make a substantial measureable difference to the outward migration of the rural young.
    Creating a Scottish container port and freeport – and in the Clyde – however, would be a massive injection of growth.
    The economic case for HS2 is not particularly persuasive, even on its approved route. Frequent shuttle flights from London City Airport would make more sense.
  • Professor James Hunter on land reform in Scotland
    So how do you see the new land reform initiatives working out in Argyll to achieve the sort of impact you envision?
  • Professor James Hunter on land reform in Scotland
    You seem to be interpreting land reform as a land grab, nevertheless, which no civilised society could contemplate; which is why you – rightly – would clearly not support any parallel to Mugabe’s initiative.
  • Queen Mary 2 now on passage to LIverpool
    Thank you for this.
  • QM2 moored off Oban
    With visibility on the QM2′s arrival off Oban making photography pointless, we used as illustrations photographs we took ourselves from Svitzer Milford, one of the tugs providing the water spray welcome for her when she first came into to Greenock on 16th September 2011 after being commissioned into service.
    You can read that article here and you will recognise the photographs used here amongst those in that article: http://forargyll.com/2011/09/42520/
    We were in position waiting for her from 06.20 on Friday morning but conditions made it impossible to get any decent usable shots.

  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.
