Comment posted A83: Hazard warnings back in place by Robert Wakeham.
You’re right – a tunnel would solve the landslide problem, and the road would be less vulnerable to disruption by winter weather. However, until there’s greater clarity from Transport Scotland on what their surveys and studies lead them to recommend for fixing the problem there’s no point in talking about it, unlike your situation at Dunoon where no ferry would be immune to stormy weather, making a tunnel worth considering now, before large sums of money are committed to the ferry system.

- It’s a pity you feel unable to ask them.
- If you substituted ‘charges’ or ‘fares’ for ‘profits’ every time you complained about WF it’d look a bit less like your real gripe was against a company running a profitable business.
- Ferryman: one of the problems – the weather – could disrupt the daily journey to work whatever sort of ferry service you have, so there’s something about your attitude that just doesn’t add up, because when people mention the idea of a tunnel (weatherproof) you immediately look for an excuse to pour scorn on them – you’re your own worst enemy.
- For goodness sake, Ferryman, to use an old-fashioned analogy you’re like a stuck gramophone needle.

db – if you scroll through the Machmaolain’s posts since it first surfaced on this blog it’s pretty clear that the main aim is to foment intolerance, but the trouble is that the intemperate ranting is so much like an off-colour music hall comedy routine – or Alf Garnett wearing a bonnet – that it’ll probably do the Scottish cause more harm than good.

I think that you speak with considerable ignorance – or is it just obtuseness? – and, for the good of your education, in the past a truck that had stopped at Butterbridge was knocked off the road, so sometimes it doesn’t matter how slow the vehicle is travelling, it can still come to grief.

What I don’t understand is how a 13 year old child’s interview at school (by someone who apparently wasn’t even known to her) is then apparently legally confidential and not to be divulged to her mother – who is surely legally responsible for her 13 year old child and bound to be concerned as to what’s going on.
Perhaps the answer is to accept that all children, upon reaching school age, should be removed from the care of unpredictable, uncontrollable parents and brought up by the state – thereby ensuring that they conform to all required norms and become model citizens.
It’s a Brave New World, isn’t it?
