Comment posted Research reveals shock insights into reality of Dunoon ferry service provision by DunoonLad.
So, if Newsroom is wrong, what does the contract and subsidy rules say exactly? A few “experts” are saying that nobody else knows the facts apart from them it seems. Why not let us all know the true facts then!

- To ferryman – I didn’t realise that the contract would have been in the public domain – thought it would have been confidential. Yes, making comments like why don’t they use the old pier all the time – now you know for definate! Need to study document.
- Thanks Jim – only 94 pages short! It mentions grants for ships, but think they have to be re
-paid. Interesting read so far.
- Simon, yes the news outlets to-day seem to thrive on stories that are usually just stories!
- Robert, unfortunately a brand new rail station has recently been built, and this involves a very long walk for passengers using the linkspan at Gourock. The station should have been located at the Cal-Mac headquarters site, which was going to relocate to Oban some years ago, if I remember correctly. This would have provided a transport hub suitable for the 21st century. It seems that those in charge of transport at the moment have no joined up thinking regarding these vital connections.
- There is a distinct lack of comments about the announcement that Alex Neil has told Argyll ferries to replace the Ali Cat with a vehicle ferry. Is this not the solution that so many people have demanded? Is there a catch to this news that has not been made public?

- 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.
- BBC indy debate: incoherent uncontrolled unedifying bear pit
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?
