No-one seems to know much about why Des Browne, Secretary of State for Scotland, has suddenly decided to visit a small part of the Western Isles. Or why knowledge of his schedule is restricted to him flying in at 10am and out at 6pm.
Of course, Des has another job as Secretary of State for Defence.
Does this explain the visit?
The Nirex list of potential nuclear dumping sites is still unchanged and includes two islands in the vicinity, so sightings of migratory military types, or mysterious boat or helicopter trips will be very gratefully received.
Even better, confirmation of the removal of the two islands from the Nirex dumping list will be very gratefully received and given great publicity.
