And of course the Scottish Executive wash their hands of the whole sordid business by saying it's a local affair. It's beyond local resolution, my dear chaps. Time to take action, as this will not be tolerated here in Lewis.
Arnish Lighthouse from Stornoway
Well said Arnish.

Perhaps we could convince the powers that be that Bethesda is an upmarket B&B to be run by an NHS managers' family instead of a crucial service for the island? There doesn't seem to be any problem in securing funds for the former, whereas maintaining healthcare for the community is obviously a low priority.
Angry from Lewis
And we all blithely believe a politician anxious to grab the headlines because he is beginning to realise he is probably unelectable, don't we?

Check your facts please. MSP Morrison has not called for resignations but makes some febble threats to do so if the situation isn't sorted out - as he knows well it will be. Health board payments to Bethesda still continue. Note that the rules are made by the very government Alasdair Morrison is part of. Methinks Calum D has hit the nail on the head. Any utterings from Alasdair Morrison should be taken in the context of desperately chasing votes
