A good while back I asked for your help in getting some sort of public recognition for the totally unpaid service given by John McWhirter to Campbeltown Lifeboat for a period of over 40 years. I cannot find anyone in the UK who achieved anting like this.
The lack of response from you honestly shocked me.
I find it impossible to reconcile this with what I see in your columns. Caring Campbeltoninians? Aye, right!
What were you afraid of? That offending someone in power might adversely affect your own chances of an MBE?
Patrick Stewart in now, I believe, Lord Lieutenant of Argyll. Did any of you think of asking him if he could help?
Never mind, I told the late John that I would much rather have people wonder why I hadn't got an "honour?" than have them wonder why I had got one. He gave me a wry smile in return.
Go on - come back with your anonymous smart ass comments - that is about all that most of you are fit for. Think on it.
