  • Cameron to address Scottish CBI as Tory MP quits for UKIP
    Malcolm – ‘totally open in what he believes’… hmm, you mean like “A pound spent in Croydon is of far more value to the country than a pound spent in Strathclyde” ?
  • Indy, the banks and the Scottish economy
    Robert – “contested divorce”?

    Relax, I’m sure it’s much more likely to be a “Conscious Uncoupling” :-) :-)

    “We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been.”

  • Indy, the banks and the Scottish economy
    Oban4me – whatever you have been told (quite likely the bank’s PR spin on the story), there is no doubt that Barclays received large-scale emergency loan assistance from the Fed – you could check this for yourself by downloading the US Government Accountability Office audit report on the Federal Reserve:-

    http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d11696.pdf

    There on page 131 in black and white – loans made to Barclays ($868bn), RBS ($541bn), Bank of Scotland ($181bn)

    I think I read somewhere that it has all (the Barclays loan) been paid back, which is good but does not mean it didn’t happen.

  • Indy, the banks and the Scottish economy
    Leaving aside the question of whether ‘parochial’ is a bad thing in this context… you have missed the point I was making. Extend the logic of your first outcome to the UK – by your argument, the UK banking sector would be ‘parochial’, i.e. able to operate only in the UK because the government/Bank of England will only stand behind its exposure within the UK.

    Clearly it is not, and therefore there is likewise no reason why a Scottish-headquartered bank should be unable to operate in international markets (including rUK) just because the Scottish authorities are unable or unwilling to cover its exposure outside Scotland.

  • Indy, the banks and the Scottish economy
    Jamie – so, waffle about pm’s ‘MO’ aside, do you have some alternative proof, or even ‘opinions’ that all the articles pm linked to are wrong, and that the UK government/Bank of England provided global guarantees for the entire liabilities of UK-headquartered banks?

    Because that’s the obvious analogy for newsroom’s contention that the Scottish Government would have to stand behind any liabilities that Scottish banks incurred outside Scotland in order for our financial sector to have any international credibility.

  3. Newsroom,
    Simply cannot get media fire beyound ‘temporarily unavalable’, please check back soon, for the last several days on the few listed candidates highlighted in red. For the others, nothing.

  4. I note that very few have provided leaflets above. Are the candidates just too busy going door to door or are they apathetic or plain lazy in Argyll? In my particular village we have received only 2 flyers through the door (that’s out of 9 standing!).
