Comment posted Lochgilphead primary pupil’s internet exposure of poor school meals goes viral by newsroom.
You have to remember that this is the same Malcolm McFadyen who pronounced himself satisfied that it is safe for tiny primary children to walk to school from Arrochar to Tarbet, under the highly dangerous pinch point of the rail bridge over the busy, truck ridden A83.
This man exists in an alternative universe called Kilmory. We can only hope that the new administration imposes a ‘common sense test’ on all decisions.
The further political decisions move away from common sense the more they discredit politics and alienate voters from the democratic process.

- I personally removed a post from Michael Banks because it was personally abusive of a nine year old child in a way that was indefensible in terms of civility and its potential impact on an emerging psyche.
- Heard this.
Very unimpressive performance from council – playing the MacFadyen line.
The meals photographed were Martha’s choice.
She didn’t know healthy food when she saw it.
The service provides millions of meals (but not to Martha – whose choices are obviously limited).
These were only four photographs.
The implication was, in every syllable, that, out of the frame of the photographs was a luscious plenty of platters of fruit, dishes of a variety of vegetables – all of which Martha had wilfully chosen not to mention.
This was not only an implausible defence, it demonstrated the culture at Kilmory that so profoundly has to change.
We are supposed to believe that there is never anything wrong in anything the council does?

- Decoding Helensburgh’s Colquhoun Square: Comet I or Comet II?
Had you made your suggestion on the lighting design for the square to Councillor Petrie who might then have taken if forwards at council level and become singularly associated with it through that process?
We should make it clear that it is popular received perception that associates Councillor Petrie with the ‘Comet’ lights, rather than any claim made by the man himself.
It would be very interesting to know of your complete plans for the lighting of the Square and the thinking behind what you had intended.

It may be that this is an issue Mr Brown has not fully thought through.
He does seem the most capable candidate and the most progressive one.

Evidently all ‘single use’ bags carry the levy, regardless of the material form which they are made – paper, plastic or recyclables.
But hygiene related bags – as for bread and cakes, for dirty products [eg with soil attached] and for medicines, are levy free.
We’ve not seen anything yet on take away food packaging, like polystyrene fish and chip or pizza boxes.

The theft of the Moore from Little Sparta was numbing.
Are the gardens at Portrack House open to the public? Jencks’ work is glorious.
- Robert Wakeham: What’s cooking around our coasts?
This is not a speculative but a factual piece.
The single sentence for which there is no documented back up is a question not a statement. This is on what could possibly explain Oceanic Pintail’s highly unusual behaviour about 10 miles off the north coast.
She had been in Scrabster. She left, following the northerly track Mr Wakeham describes towards the point of access to Scapa Flow from the wes; tand then turned sharply SW, levelling out to begin her strange sequence.
She made three successive return passes between Cape Wrath and Brims Ness at steady speed and then went back in to Scrabster.
This part of her task was a ‘test run’ for what?
The question needs to be asked and there is no straightforward reason why the answer cannot be given.
