At least the Dundee FC version was not full of swear words!

  • This Hitler video has been used by different people on many occasions.
    Last year there was an excellent version produced by a Dundee FC supporter as a protest at the draconian 25 point deduction by the Scottish Football League given to Dundee Football Club due to Dundee FC going into administration.
    The management of the SFL are so hopeless that they still do not have a laid down points deduction in their rules for a member club goint into administration.
    If it had been Rangers FC they would certainly NOT have received a 25 point deduction.

    Most of these people living off their Giros are not interested looking for work yet it is the hard working people paying their taxes that are subsidising the unemployed people.
    A hundred years ago if someone was out of work they could end up in the Poorhouse but nowadays people who do not work get all sorts of benefits thrown at them.

    No.
    Sir Philip Cohen in an interview in today’s Dundee Courier states that a Yes vote would result in many scientists leaving Scotland as the research grants would be greatly reduced.
    Sir Philip Cohen received his knighthood for his work in trying to find a cure for diabetes.

    Simon.
    Now that I have posted who I worked for it is your turn to tell us who you were/are employed by.
    You seem to know nothing about the financial industry especially in Scotland.
    Most of the customers of the big financial institutions in Scotland live outwith Scotland.
    In the case of Standard Life 90% of their savers live in the rest of the UK and abroad.
    Standard Life is duty bound to protect their customers’ deposits and if that means moving them to the rest of the UK then that is what will happen.
    Standard Life in event of a Yes vote are not waiting to see what will happen as Alex Salmond and John Swinney will not come clean about their plans for the currency in an independent Scotland.
    If RBS move their Head Office to London then thousands of RBS staff based at Gogarburn will relocate to London with the obvious loss of National Insurance and Income Tax payments to the Scottish Exchequer.
    John Swinney has previously calculated his finances on an oil price of $113 per barrel and this morning Brent Crude was quoted at $99 per barrel.
    Therefore Swinney has major problems balancing the books with an oil price more than 10% less than his benchmark figure plus the lost National Insurance and Income Tax payments when thousands of financial staff relocate from the Edinburgh area to the rest of the UK.
    During my employment with the Bank of Scotland I worked in Edinburgh for two and a half years so I know what I am talking about.
    Standard Life announced last February what steps they would take in the event of a Yes vote yet Salmond and Swinney paid no heed to that warning and still they refuse to state what the currency would be should Scotland become an independent country.

    Saddam Hussein only has himself to blame for the Iraq war in 2003.
    Saddam had previously gassed his own countrymen and he gave the impression that he still had weapons of mass destruction which he was prepared to use.
    No doubt John in Kintyre would prefer to sit on the fence and take no action.
    Look what has happened with ISIS in Syria and Iraq because Obahma and other world leaders decided not to arm the moderate rebels in Syria.

    John Sinclair.
    Your friend John Swinney said on television a couple of nights ago that a Yes vote would allow an independent Scotland to pull all its fiscal levers.
    As John Swinney’s preferred option is a currency union with the rest of the UK this statement by John Swinney could not be further from the truth.
    In a currency union the Bank of England would set the interest rates and the Westminster Government would set the taxation rates for the benefit of the rest of the UK. If the interest rates and taxation rates did not suit the Scottish Government then too bad because they were adamant that in the event of a Yes vote they wanted to keep the pound as part of a currency union.
    Meanwhile Salmond & Co have lost the funds previously received from the Barnett Formula and the extra powers that were promised should there be a No vote. As a result the independent Scottish Government would be worse off than they were before the Referendum vote on 18th September 2014.

  1. “has the full hearted support of Oban businesses and the majority of Oban people.”

    How dare he say that without absolutely any evidence.
    Nearly all the people I know who live in Oban are dead against the idea. A few restaurants close to the bay may want it I admit.
    The bay (and its view) are for all of us. Not just for the gin and tonic brigade on their flash boats. Well done to the Councillors who are actively opposing the destruction of the historic ambience of Oban Bay.

    • W.S.:

      Could you tell us all who are the Councillors who are actively opposing the proposal? Then we might see whether “nearly all the people you know” will agree with them on May 3rd?

  2. The only evidence I have about the matter is the opposition from some of the Council paid staff who went out of their way to oppose the proposal when it was part of the Chord ideas. Their bent words against it (“Councillors shouldnt vote for tenders for the project because they would be surcharged if it didnt go ahead”) made me think that some people were opposed to it for their own personal interests rather than its advantages or disadvantages for the town.
    They led some to oppose the idea bacause they thought that the business case had not been made, when without a tender figure there could be no business case.

  3. I think the majority of the folk that live in Oban can recognise the hard economic sense of having a proper marina in the town and have powers of reasoning that extend beyond the cartoon stereotyping that appears to pass for thought with ‘WS’

    I do get the impression that there are people in Oban who hold long-standing grudges against some of the members of OBM’s board, and that this may also go some way to explaining the persistent lack of enthusiasm on the Council’s part.

    I presume everyone has seen the OBM/Hitler video?

    Time for some investigative journalism to see if these claims of self-interest are true and if not to put them to bed? Just a thought – I am bored with Spygate and its endless follow-ups now.

  5. Sorry to be a pain but who were the local councillors who spoke against the marina at the public meeting in McTs.Any takers, just to clarify the situation before the May3rd elections.Independent,SNP,liberal or maybe MacKay and Devon.
    Sorry I just can,t remember what they were that week.

    • If my memory serves me right, councillors from accross the spectrum voted not to support the OBM proposal in the location or form presented. Contrary to Jamie McGrigor’s statement above, the majority of Oban people were by no stretch of the imagination behind the plan. i dont know what circles the Tory list MSP moves in to make that sweeping assumption. Perhaps a ‘referendum’ needed!!!!
      If possible, (for a politician), could Neil Macintyre give his answer YES or No for pontoons between the piers.
      The seemingly never ending Chord issues in general are one thing, but the particular issue of Obans central waterfront is another where the council have got right.

  6. I dont recall any of the Councillors speaking against the proposal at the meeting – tho’ the editor of FA was there and may have a note. It was the staff man who was challenged by Skye McIntosh.

  7. Just flitted back to the corran halls CHORD meeting on Sept.2010.That gives us a better idea of the local councillors views.The one undeniable fact is that nothing has been achieved through Chord in Oban.So bring on the elections and lets see if nothing is what people want.
    Power to the People.
