7. I can easily relate to some of those dynamics.

There's really nowhere like Argyll & Bute elsewhere in the UK. It's vast and unwieldy. It stretches from Helensburgh - which I believe also ranked high in that top 10, though it doesn't have its problems to seek (and is neighboured by the Clyde Submarine Base) - in the southeast to Oban and beyond in the northwest, with numerous island communities in the far west and a massive rural hinterland with all the good and bad that entails, dotted with a few medium-sized conurbations.

It would be a right handful to administer even with a competent, non-corrupt grouping in charge and a following wind. In the grips of the current shower, it's ... not good.
