I was honoured to be able to have these words printed in the West Highland Free Press 2000th edition

"I welcomed and contributed to the radicalism and diverse ideas
that drove the early years of the Free Press. I hope that
spirit can be recaptured in future because editorial values
have sagged over the years into doctrinaire stances that have
failed to serve the paper's catchment as the early fervour
promised. We need diverse opinions in a truly free press in
this evolving nation and particularly those which seeks to
enlighten rather than lecture. Good luck with the task. The
land, the languages and the people of the West Coast deserve
it".[by that way I have nearly every copy of the paper to refer to]
