- 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?

- Managed protest at Pacific Quay shames pro-indy campaign
I think when independent academic examination of the BBC output on the Referendum clearly shows a bias towards the BT campaign there are questions to be asked.
How Newsie could possibly think that a few hundred souls could intimidate the BBC is beyond comprehension.
There are great concerns amongst BBC staff as to the direction of travel of the BBC both in Scotland and the Network. Pacific Quay is an unhappy place.
The coverage of the Games has seen a takeover of Pacific Quay by the usual Network Sports presenters and commentators. It must be costing the BBC a fortune in accommodation costs alone. Surely here was an opportuinity to showcase homegrown journalists at considerbaly less expense.
If the BBC think these journalists are normally perfectly adequate for Scottish viewers why are they not for the Network?
Incidentally the guy who commentated in Hampden to the spectators ( he’s English) was far superior to anyone I have heard from the BBC in recent years. His breadth of knowledge and ability to keep the crowd interested added to the enjoyment of the day.
