- 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?

In conversation with Rupert Soames two years ago (not a friend of Independence) he was fulsome in his praise of John Swinney.
Nicola will not have made her commitments without John’s approval. That’s how they work.
Immaginative use of the fiscal system can bring considerable revenue resources to the Scottish government to fund advances in childcare. Landowners are a sitting duck. Land value rental is on the horizon,much to the displeasure of Mr McGrigor no doubt, and a variation to inheritance rates and the conditions re the destination of bequests leaching funds from the Scottish economy are two examples or rich painless takings

I recall Newsie that you have often said that the current SNP government are not up to the job of leading an independent Scotland. Would this not also apply to the Westminster Establishment?
