Comment posted Russell stance on Argyll Ferries raises serious questions by DunoonLad.
Did Western not accept the Rover tickets for a period? Surely some agreement could be put in place to include Western’s Dunoon service in the scheme?

- @Dave MH – yes, what you want WOULD have been the popular choice. The present situation is completly different. A private operator will have been on the route for 40 years in 2013! The rules have had to be changed because of this, and European Regulation. Time to wake up and realise it is now 2012. Yes, the passenger service needs sorted, but probably not by a new vehicular service. Cal-Mac probably added to this situation by the way they ran the service e.g. Ticket restrictions, staff attitude, account keeping etc. Better boats, better passenger shore facilities including means of boarding, especially the distance to walk at Gourock. How this service can be in a modern Scotland is totally unacceptable. And remember, by this time next year, Western should be operating their two new ferries, which should resolve any capacity issues.
- A vehicle service from Dunoon to Gourock is now a dead duck!

- Greenock Telegraph persists with FoI to reveal cost to Calmac of repairing crashed Coruisk
Yes, the original substantial cost was absurd, but accidents can and do happen. The company may well be insured for such accidents anyway. Doesn’t take away from the un-warranted deployment of this ship, and this money should be used for much needier projects, e.g. Proper waiting room, and landing facilities, prior to the ordering of proper passenger ferries for the route.

Have you all (including Newsroom) forgotten about the most important statement of the debate that was made by Darling – Scotland can of course use the pound as an Independent country! It was always known that they would be able to use it, but the better together leader confirmed it last night. Yes, the rest was a bit of a squabble alright.

- Indy campaign airhead statement of the week
Well, whatever is said by anyone, the fact is that if Scotland does become independent, depending on various discussions, there will be a currency for the country. There are no answers to numerous questions being brought up. How could there be, as decisions have to be made by the elected Government? What about the £billions that are lodged with the Bank of England, by Scotland, does that not count?
