Now for something completely different!....... a short rant about lavatories and politicians.

It is a one and a half hour drive from Kilchoan to Corran Ferry if you are leaving the peninsula. Then, if you just miss the boat you often have a 30 minute wait, two hours  in total to get to the other side.

 In the past there has been a public lavatory at the Ardgour ferry terminal maintained by the proprietors of the Inn at Ardgour.

When I drove to Ft. William last week I walked over to the toilet to find this notice in the window.

I have lived and worked in a number of countries; the civilised ones in Europe, N. America and Africa provide citizens with clean well managed public lavatories. In countries governed by despotic, Stalinist dictators; Russia and Uzbekistan for example the citizens are held in contempt by their governments and public lavatories are either non-existent or unbelievably filthy.

If the UK is the fifth largest economy in the world why can't we afford public lavatories? Do our politicians at local, national and UK level hold us in contempt?
