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!

Do the modern ferries not all have radar, and other equipment to enable them to navigate in poor visibility, and the dark?

Re-Dunoon Hustings – and the Ukip candidate was really well out her depth during the night. The young Tory candidate I thought, should attend some anger management courses – why would you pick on a member of the audience, because there was no green candidate standing? Alan Reid did get put in his place on numerous occasions. The chair did not help the debates, with his poor control of everyone. The majority in attendance, def wanted rid of trident. 1 1/2 hours not long enough for a decent meeting.

Newsroom, the clue is in the name – Scottish National Party. The party was set up to gain independence, as everyone should know by now. Anything in between, is merely a stepping stone for them. Obviously, the other parties, and no doubt, new ones, will be the ones that will be elected to form a Scottish Government, in the new independent state.

- The SNP manifesto – are we seeing the take-off of a Scottish Icarus?
@Newsroom – So Scotland is now a region? Last time I looked, it was a Nation, and had it’s own elected Government, unlike the sleeping lords, who get paid £300 a day, for their snores.
