Letter to the Editor

Serious consideration


I agree with most of your editorial in last week’s Arran Banner on the discussion of the relative merits of Ardrossan and Troon.

Two things strike me, as an old cynic. The first is that competition is a great thing. There is nothing like a bit of it to awake the sleepers – I refer chiefly to the Peel Ports management. The second is the attitude of the politicians in North Ayrshire – of all colours – who have come out in favour of Ardrossan. I wonder why?

I have no doubt that they are sincere in their views but they are swayed inevitably by the fact that their mainland voters will be 95 per cent in favour of Ardrossan, so impartiality is simply not on the agenda and this applies to people with many vested interests, here and on the mainland.
