- 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?

- Where are the SNP minders in white coats?
When Unionist politicians say that if SNP MPs vote in a certain way they are “trying to sabotage the democratic will of the British people” does that mean that in the eyes of the British Establishment a Scottish MPs vote is or should be of less value than the vote of an MP from England if those Scottish MPs votes produce a majority which is different from the vote of a majority of English MPs?
- Economic case for more national parks in Scotland – obstructed by Scottish Government
I think you should ask the folk who live in a national park what they think of it.
It is the most undemocratic form of government in Scotland and in my experience acts against the economic and social interests of residents and does nothign effectively to prevent blots on the landscape. Just have alook at the large number of illegal permanent signs at Arden roundabout whuch it has failed to have removed.
In Luss all communities groups and Luss Estate proposed a development plan to build around 40 family homes to encourage young families to live so that the school could be sustainable. Up to now the NP said that only tourist related accommodation was permitted.
The Np were not interested when I offered to relocate my business to the Luss area which would have produced 20 well paid inobtrusive jobs and brought guaranteed income to the businesses in the village and help counter the depopulation.
Depopulation is rife in the NP park of A & B.
Give small local communities the power to control and develop their communities. They know more about what makes their communities tick and how best to let them flourish.

- Business opportunity in National Park flagship building at Loch Lomond Shores
I seem to recall that x Labour Lird Provist did rather well out of the sale of the Lomond Shores site. Perhaps he could use it as a museum to the Labour Party. After May they’ll be plenty of dinosaurs to put in it.
- Scotland’s Big Voice and the ‘One Vote’ fight for the Union
Ken, Vienna works because it has redeveloped the social Union of the various races who were once part of the political Empire.
There is no pretence to dominate or direct folk- you hardly see a policeman- just enjoy, live and contribute.
The UK political Union is dying but the social Union will be strengthened once the weight of the political Union is lifted.
