Argyll & Bute: So far I’ve only made it up to Oban and Seil, but my god the scenery is breathtaking.
So why did the local Council put this out today?
Investment: it’s a good thing, especially in transport and leisure; bringing the tourists in, leading to business growth.
No problem with that; so which piece of glorious scenery or tourist attraction did they use?
A Vanguard class submarine.
What’s the strap-line “Come to Helensburgh, you’ll leave with a warm glow”?
The image has been used because the investment is from the MoD – which is why our Governor General with his inane grin is there. The cabinet tea boy being the only Tory MP gets wheeled out for all these sorts of things showing us what we get as part of Great Britain; WMDs and food-banks.
Now I may be wrong but I’m pretty sure when people are picking out tourist destinations they don’t go for the one housing nuclear weapons.
Honestly I think this was a stupid idea from the council. Their tourism department must be wondering why they bother.
You know I may have an answer for that.
I’ll leave you with, in my opinion, some better representation of the locality.
