  • Fair enough. If I was OTT, I’m sorry.
    You’ll take in in good part then if I refer to your comment with the mis-spells as “Gus-typo Tactics” !!
  • Do you find defining people according to fictional comic stereotypes comforting?
    In a debate of this sensitivity I think it’s both shallow and unhelpful.
  • “Fascism is the insistence on and the imposition of a single perspective, a single purpose, a single rightness – and an inability to tolerate the contrary view.”

    …..I live and learn; I thought that was bigotry.

  • No politician should have been asked. That was the BBc’s first mistake.
    If a politician were to be asked, it should have been the minister with a responsibility for sport. That was the BBC’s second mistake.
    Having asked Salmond and having made the mistakes they did, they were discourteous in cancelling the interview and wasting his time. That was their third mistake.
    Given the resulting stooshie, they should have ‘fessed up, been transparent about process and reported it along with a public apology for wasting the first ministers time. That was their 4th mistake.
  • Separatism is something quite different from independence. If the BBC think that “separatism” is worthy of consideration as a constitutional option, I would suggest they take the opportunity of the public consultation process to raise and propose it as a possible additional question to be asked of the electorate in the referendum.

    There will be a lot of conspiracy theorist yoons who will be disappointed that you haven’t outed the deep-state totalitarian Nats who are REALLY behind this !!
    Still, meantime, democratic accountability as we’ve come understand it in Argyll & Bute still needs a vigilant eye and for a forum in which expressions of concern can be aired.
    This, for example, could have been discussed and might have prompted an explanation of some kind from A&BC …

  • Here’s how the ‘BT Broadband Security’ scam works – a victim’s narrative
    The two biggest lies in the world are:

    “The cheque’s in the post”

    and

    “I’m from BT customer support, I’m here to help”

    Make this your motto: Beware of GEEKS bearing gifts

  • Here’s how the ‘BT Broadband Security’ scam works – a victim’s narrative
    Genuinely sorry to hear that. Glad though you had a few strokes of luck to mitigate against these scammers completely cleaning you out. All credit to you for having the courage to share this with us.
  • Here’s how the ‘BT Broadband Security’ scam works – a victim’s narrative
    I really hope this is an illustrative parable rather than a genuine account of something that actually happened.
  • Supreme Court finds for appellants on Named Persons
    A ray of sunshine indeed,Mr Kirk!
    The figures though upon which this optimistic outlook as based are pre the EU referendum.
    Since then, we’ve voted to come out of the EU; the PM has resigned, the Chancellor has been sacked, Liam Fox is in Trade and Industry, Boris Johnston is in the Foreign Office.
    The Stock Market and the £ have been “volatile”. The banks have been stress tested and it doesn’t look good
    The CBI have reported that manufacturers business confidence has fallen at its fastest rate since early 2009, and there have been falls in both investment and hiring. From surveys by Deloitte, the Institute of Directors and others there is general agreement that brexit will reduce economic activity. The Bank of England agrees.
    HM Treasury have published a paper entitled “Forecasts for the UK economy: a comparison of independent forecasts” ( you’ll find it here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/539316/Forecasts_for_the_UK_Economy_July_2016.pdf). It makes depressing reading.
