What is the route from the Gamble Steps to the railhead?

- Who would not subscribe to every word of this?
- We cannot compromise the staff concerned by trying to speak to them – they are still council employees.
If there are other responsibilities in their job descriptions, they might form the basis for whatever redeployment may be in the frame, should that be acceptable.
We are aware that the Council told the Helensburgh Advertiser that there were no planned redundancies, with the men receiving their redundancy notices on the heels of that statement.
This can safely be read as the cowardly action of a paranoid council culture, knowing it would get hammered for these job losses but realistically having little alternative.
We thought about the Waverley of course – but it visits Kilcreggan very seldom and would not make a job.
As for maintenance, these days, with the unmanned piers which are the majority, maintenance will be done by a team sent in following a periodic inspection.
The issue here is the length of the perid.
CalMac have been having real difficulties with the Craignure jetty on Mull, which is council owned and whch is in a bad way.

We’re very sorry to hear this – and you will have everyone’s sympathy.
- Mandela an exemplar for redemptive spiritual largeness
Nelson Mandela was 72 years old when he came out of prison in 1990 – carrying a range of health problems resulting from his incarceration and from events during it.
He became President of South Africa in 1994 and served for five years until he stood down in 1999.
In these circumstances it is ridiculous to accuse him of ‘not fixing Africa’.
By NOT doing what he might have done and choosing rather to heal and to be an agent of healing, he deflected south Africa from the fully expected descent into a bloodbath.
He did this with grace and largeness of spirit that touched everyone. Who else would or could have done any of this – and at such an age, from such a starting point?
‘Fixing Africa’ is up to those to whom Mandela’s achievement was giving them the time to do so.
- Helensburgh group calls for Argyll and Bute Council to take action against defiant developers
Point of information: Andrew Nisbet has not been a councillor at Argyll and Bute since the local authority elections in May 2012. He had become a councillor at a by-election; but the Liberal Democrat vote was quite thinly spread in the May 2012 election and Mr Nisbet was not reelected.
- Storm tally and situation review
Our experience is that the BBC service is the more reliable and the more frequently updated.
It also covers all roads where, generally, Traffic Scotland deals only with roads and bridges that are within Transport Scotland’s responsibility.
- Handbrake turn for Scottish police on corroborative evidence
This is a flagrant misreading and a misapplication of what we have said.
