Comment posted Council Elections: The count by Jade.
I’m gutted for Gordon, too. I’ve always found him very helpful and he’s done a lot in a quiet way. Alastair was a councillor previously and it’s good to have two island members again this time.

- Karl, Tiree’s covered by Ward 4 so your best bets are MJD and Alastair MacDougall from Mull. Know MJD spent quite a lot of time over on Tiree last couple of years hearing views.

- First Minister’s choice not to condemn mob behaviour proves Farage point
Sorry, but I have to back up Keith McMillan. I know both Brum and Leeds and there are no go areas. I was never bothered in the slightest until I had to spend 2 years of hell in the latter. The intimidation was astonishing, even in broad daylight in major shopping areas. Even when we could stand it no more, the bullying and threats received when selling my property and Asian families wanted to move in resulted in police action when two males of the family trapped me in the garage and grabbed hold of me telling me to sell. That resulted in police action. Sadly, the behaviour of these people reflects badly on those (such as our little local store) Asians more than willing to integrate and work hard.
I support no political party so have no axe to grind. It may be that Scotland is lucky in that it has not seen these no go areas and immigrants are more willing to integrate.
As far as this debacle is concerned, I don’t think any of the parties behaved well, but I was shocked by Mr Salmond’s attitude.
- A819 from Inveraray to A85 junction to close at night for roadworks
Not strictly accurate, Lynda, quite possible to go Crianlarich, Lix Toll, Lochearnhead, Callendar and then take your choice.
- Stuart McMillan welcomes wifi in train stations – but Oban is out of the loop
What does anyone expect? We’re not central belt; train journeys and links are abysmal – especially if you’re on an island.
It would be really good if one had mobile phone coverage, let alone Wi-Fi and decent broadband would be appreciated – especially by those who pay but can’t get a reliable service!
- Search stood down for missing fishing boat and one man crew
If this is accurate, then I would hope that, like me,readers will offer their condolences to family and friends of the fisherman lost.
News like this puts the sick saga of A&BC politics to shame.
- Struan Lodge and the future care of the elderly
Thank you for your kind words, Stooshie. As at least one person closely connected with FA forum has also had issues with the problems of elderly/end of life care at home, I simply felt it needed to be said.
