- siting Waitrose in east Helensburgh will not increase football to the town. Nor will it create new jobs. As the consumer spend is finite all it means is that some money spent in Helensburgh but more likely in Dumbarton will now be spent in Waitrose.
Consequently any jobs created at Waitrose will result in fewer jobs in Asda and Morrisons in Dumbarton.
bearing in mind that Dumbarton is the third poorest area in Scotland is there not a moral imperative on us to support Dumbarton where the loss of up to 180 jobs will have a devastating effect on these families who in all probability struggle much more than most Helensburgh families?

Angus really knows how to wind the Unionists up.
Could Newsie analyse the potential occupations of Scottish Labour MPs and MSPs? How many will seek a Scottish seat,retire or try for one in rUK. I dont see Jackie Baillie making way for any MP, do you?
Douglas Alexander is positioning himself as MSP fir Paisley South to become Labour Leader.
What about Alan Reid? Will he stand in A & B against whoever the SNP candidate is? As probably the last Secretary of State for Scotland he’ll be due a good pension.

Huge support for YES in Helensburgh today.
Many new campaigners signed up. People are buying the White Paper and really keen to engage. The YES gazebo was buzzing all day. By contrast U-KOK was a miserable half hearted affair.
Time to take bets on Jackie Baillie jumping ship in New Year.
Interesting analogy with insurance. The Telegraph reported last year that if you pay the same premiums on your pension policy in the Netherlands and the UK you get 50% more in pension in the Netherlands.
Another reason to vote YES.

Unionists can’t have their cake and eat it. If Scotland can’t share in the asset then it can’t share the debt either.
Take your pick!
I rather think AS us rather relaxed about either scenario because he is in a win win situation as UK is drowning in debt and it’s liabilities exceed it’s assets.
Scotland’s greatest assets are geographic, the fruits of the land, the sea. Unlike the city of London which could be anywhere whisky production and oil and energy development runs with the land.
If anything the Scottish Government is being too generous to rUK but that is just indicative of how good a neighbour we shall be.
Scotland is letting rUK down lightly. These are transitional arrangements which will be replaced once the journey of travel of each society accelerates down a different path.
RUK should take what’s on offer graciously. Its a great deal.
