There was an excellent turnout of 1,000 (?) marchers and 50+ lorries and vans.
I had a chat with, and spotted a lot of, candidates for the local Council elections and if I hadn't been shepherding three kids around I would have spoken with many more. I wasn't being rude, just busy with kids and a flight to catch.
Absent from the entire march were any SNP Council candidates - although one activist was on the fringes, obviously to report back - which, as Angus Campbell says, tells you all you need to know about their position on RET.
Woody made an excellent point that has been missed in much of the debate, which is that there are incremental increases in the fares over the next three years adding £600 to the cost of an lorry across the Minch.
All that will come out of YOUR pocket, as food prices rises; as deliveries cost more; and, as the other businesses on the island have to pass on the costs.
I hope that the press coverage is good, as this is such a major issue for the islands.
Gail Robertson, the organiser of the campaign, deserves to be roundly congratulated for taking the bull by the horns.
