On thin ice

Argyllshire Advertiser - - YOUR VIEWS -

Fac­ing yet an­other bud­get of aus­ter­ity, Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil needs the ap­par­ent col­lapse of Gul­liver’s like a hole in the head.

Coun­cil of­fi­cers and mem­bers will surely see to it that road safety will not be com­pro­mised by a lack of grit­ters, but it is a safe bet that any al­ter­na­tives will cost ex­tra pub­lic money.

The signs seem to have been there since 2017 that Gul­liver’s was fac­ing tough times, so there has to be a ques­tion over the wis­dom of en­ter­ing a one-year con­tract with the firm.

And was there no­body closer than Bris­tol to deal with?
