Comment posted Scottish government’s mad plan for rural parliament by Crazy She-Bat.
LOL @ this article and the comments over the past couple of days and it seems to be getting even funnier.
Will admit to thinking did newsroom have a bevvy on Saturday night and wind the clocks forward a wee bit too much – like to the 1st of April? Then saw the Beeb had it on their website too.
So this is essentially a proposal for a wee get together every couple of years and talk about rural stuff. Why don’t they all just attend that conference in Mull with the Ulva folk? Straight from the horses mouth, so to speak, they’ll get with everything they need to know.
Edinburgh-centric? Superb terminology which I will also be applying to all things Kilmory on a local level.
There are many countries who have a capital as one city and bigger cities that are not. Edinburgh creates a good impression for Scotland on the world’s stage. Do we really want world leaders and ambassador’s coming to the Gorbals to visit us? “Yes, Mr Ambassador, that’s a jakey. Remember and hide yer passport in yer shoes and if you bend over I’ll hide yer wallet. Where do you wish me to stash the Ferrero Rocher?”. Get a grip people.
Aberfoyle? Why not Callander? Then we can tell visiting officials “Well we were going for Aberfoyle, but then decided on Callander as they have a better chip shop. Have you tried our new national dish yet? No? Oh here’s a battered and deep-fried Mars Bar”.
Why not have it at Crianlarich, Auchtermuchty or Milngavie? Just so we can laugh at them trying to pronounce it.
Well, there I’ve made a hefty comment about absolutely nothing…
kind of like this story. Sorry newsroom!

- How about holding it near where the Battle of Stirling Bridge was? or Bannockburn? Then we can make the kilt statutory dress and shout “Freeeeeeedom” at the start of each session…
or am I being overly sentimental? lol
- Hmmm, maybe this is a job for me????

And so the spotlight of the National media shines again on Argyll…
and as usual, not for a good reason.
Lets just say it like it is – Local Government is not and has not been working here for some time. The upper echelons of the council needs completely gutted, Councillors and Officers alike and in their place, something that actually works for the people of Argyll in the best interests of the populous and not for their own selfish benefit.
- Am dram wardrobe for Scottish team’s Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony costumes
Its taken me a couple of days to feel brave enough to venture near the internet or the tv and come forward. I am a victim of ocular assault.
After washing my eyeballs with bleach (from Lidl) I am dismayed to see that my first impressions of the Commonwealth Costumes are correct. Who knew there was a tartan named “Puke”?
I would love to know what that wee woman was smoking when she designed that. It certainly wasn’t kippers.
It truly is awful. Supporting Scotland in any sport is embarrassing enough, but this takes the Tunnock’s teacake.
Is it not too late to change it to tracksuits and baseball caps? The unofficial uniform of Greater Glasgow anyway? And it would be the first time a tracksuit would have been worn in the city by someone actually taking part in sport.
I think I shall spent the 23rd of July hiding up in the hills with a paper bag over my head pretending to be a wild haggis.
- Audit Scotland’s latest report on Argyll and Bute Council ‘disappointing and worrying for local people’
Our council is rotten. There’s a surprise. Its not like we don’t already know this.
The only way this is going to change is the complete replacement of the senior officers at the council and councillors in place who are not in it for themselves.
However, the chances of this are remote at best and will no doubt only happen when things come to a cataclysmic end in Argyll & Bute.
- Next set of overnight closures coming up for A82 at Pulpit Rock
The A82 is also closed at the Stoneymollan Roundabout to Dumbarton stretch over the next few nights.
- Crowds, cabers, clans, crafts and choir for Luss Highland Games
Hopefully there will be some good weather and not too many midgies for the games.
If so, I shall be selling my car space to the highest bidder…
