Dave, the Labour Party in Scotland is not …

Comment posted Dunoon Observer invites voters to pick their ghoul by Andy.

Dave, the Labour Party in Scotland is not so much the unionist party as the Anti Anything-The-SNP-Says Party. If the SNP said the Clyde was wet, the Labour Party would disagree and tell us it was a plot by the “Nats”.
They have yet to realise that the Scotland around them has moved on while they are stuck in a muddy rut. This applies whether it be National or Local politics. One day it will click and we may well find that they have principles after all and can make a positive contribution to the social fabric of Scotland. Until the penny drops, we will just have to put up with the negative sniping and personal insults of which Gus’s are a perfect illustration. He should perhaps be asking himself how his comments have advanced the Labour cause in Argyll and Bute. If he thinks they have, then the Labour Party has an awful long road to travel.

    From the “grassroots” who brought you “Votenoborders”, we present, the indy vote splitting, Scottish Independence Party.
  • Failing first time round, RMT go for 2nd strike to screw Scotland – and themselves
    Perhaps at one time there was plenty of work in the North Sea, not now. A look at AIS around the Aberdeen area will confirm the number of ships sitting off the coast waiting for work, and avoiding harbour dues. Many of these will have been put up for sale to avoid the expense of keeping them active but nobody is buying, and crewing levels are presently at the minimum level necessary to comply with regulations.
    Moving abroad does not help either as the oil industry is depressed worldwide, not just in the North Sea.
  • Western Ferries: history and validation
    I had to do a double take too. All those years studying Latin at Dunoon Grammar School under Messrs Galt and Sutherland gives you a sharp sense of the meaning of English words derived from Latin. “Vale” – goodbye (singular), “diction” – from dictus, past participle of dīcere, to say, speak.

    Yours faithfully,

    The signs to the park are not absent. I drove from the centre of Falkirk and the signs to Helix Park were at every junction, as they were when I was entering Falkirk. I cannot speak for any signs approaching from the motorway or any other direction, but I had no trouble at all finding it.
