Did they have a BBC reporter at the scene? It is quite possible that they got the details from an egency, a local stringer or even the police. It would not be the first time that reports from official sources have got details like that wrong but of course the BBC always get the blame.

  • Much of the cost of the Thames Regatta came from private funds and what came from public funds seems a small price to pay for the number of people who enjoyed it. You could use the same argument for every public event including those in Scotland, cancel the Edinburgh Festival, Edinburgh Tattoo, Glasgow Marathon etc and use the money on roads? I suspect the cost of the Thames Regatta would not go far towards making the A9 dual carriageway all the way to Inverness and the Inverness lobby want – I think it would be a lot cheaper to just paint double white lines down all the single-carriage way sections and spend something on the A82. Perhaps some of those diverted on Friday will realise just how much worse the A82 with only a slightly lower amount of traffic than the A9 and similar accident rate to the A9 despite the claims the A9 is the most dangerous in Scotland or the UK.
  • I saw that one but I think that when I looked closer it was not “Argyll” but can’t remember now what I thought it was.

    Agree on the singers, they did a great job considering the conditions. I thought their conductor should have turned around at the end of Rule Britannia and encouraged the party on Spirit of Chartwell to join in!

    The Bah Humbug people were proved wrong and it is reported that 1.2 million people had a great day in London with many more watching around the world.

    Watching Waverley this morning made me think they missed a great opportunity for publicity all around the world if they had taken part.

    More important, the crazy situation of wanting to leave the single market with Scotland’s largest trading partner, by far, in favour of a group of countries that Scotland does much less trade with.

    Is that the vow that there would not be another independence referendum within a generation?

    I read that these are the same banks who were going to pull out of London if we did not adopt the Euro years ago.
