'Początki są trudne, lecz nie zapomniane;) a to nasz instruktor Michał;) ' As the Utube page explains.
Always something new on utube:
'Because for us – "Labour" is never simply a political party.
It is an attitude of mind;
An outlook on life,
a sense of historic,
of solidarity with and for others,
of struggle and achievement,
and even occasionally - heroic failure'
If you have a strong stomach the full speech is here

The New York Times reports:
Shortages and high prices for all kinds of food have caused tensions and even violence around the world in recent months. Since January, thousands of troops have been deployed in Pakistan to guard trucks carrying wheat and flour. Protests have erupted in Indonesia over soybean shortages, and China has put price controls on cooking oil, grain, meat, milk and eggs.
Food riots have erupted in recent months in Guinea, Mauritania, Mexico, Morocco, Senegal, Uzbekistan and Yemen. But the moves by rice-exporting nations over the last two days — meant to ensure scarce supplies will meet domestic needs — drove prices on the world market even higher this week.

Seems ok to the Gurn, you would only have to go down the brae to get the bus to work at one of the thousands of jobs that will be available at the airport. No difficulties for the paperboy/girl too, could easily deliver all the lurid details about Nairn that are available in the Highland News these days. This is the type of development we must press for, no one in this type of accomodation would even dream of pouring fat down the drains. Thanks again to one of our readers for their wonderful vision of how the edge of town might look in the years to come.

Yes there is obviously a problem here, you could go the extra mile lol, only to find out you had to go it again and then again until the sorting office opens . Never mind the Gurn is sure that this is an issue that many anti-closure Labour MPs would have the bottle to abstain about! Cowardly comrades?

One regular walker has suggested that there may be a more mundane temporal reason that would need the intervention of a utility firm to sort things out? No can’t be true – let’s go with the miracle theory.

Meanwhile across the road from the community centre the boarded up buildings await another planning decision. Will it finally be all change in the town centre at last?
PS who was that guy with the ginger hair? Did he have a surgery in the community centre today or was he too showing his support for Sainsburys?

Commemorative stamp to celebrate our community’s betrayal by the Post Office and the Labour Party in Westminster?
How the stamp might look.
'Capture and share your treasured moments with personalised Smilers stamps. For as little as £13.50 you can add your favourite photo to a sheet of 20 stamps.
From weddings to new arrivals you’re just a few step away from creating stamps that are uniquely yours.'
A regular reader of the Gurn informs us that he is considering taking advantage of this service to order a stamp that depicts the famous Fishertown Uprising of last month.
"The pollution in China is a threat to my health and it would be difficult for me to run 42km in my current condition."
Anyway, why boycott the Olympics? The answer of course is Tibet. Isn't it about time Tibet was allowed a bit more say in its own affairs, after all even Scotland has a little bit of autonomy these days.

Highlands and Islands Labour MSP Peter Peacock said he was pleased Pultneytown had been saved.
He added: "I appreciate the impact the closures elsewhere will have on local communities, particularly for the elderly."
Fergus Ewing, MSP for Inverness East, Nairn and Lochaber described the consultation process as "more cosmetic than real".
What about a major protest march in Inverness?
That would be a bit more use than debate!
Their latest plan for a Nairn store seems quite modest in size having just 20 stores in Scotland, the nearest being Aberdeen.
With HGV fuel costs going toward the £2 a mile any supermarket is going to find suppling NE Scotland as one with a high overhead, the nearest depots are usually hundreds of miles away
for all that Sainsburys might offer us. One thing for sure, if it does open it will clog the A96 even more as the masses from nearby Tesco towns come to see what all the fuss is about.

Thanks again Iright, by the way what do you think the effect of the proposed marina at the Carse might have on Nairn Harbour?
