Comment posted Misleading instructions to voters: is Duncan Macintyre trawling for 4th preference votes? by Treble T.
There is no need for a Disability Awareness Officer in Argyll & Bute. It is the councillor’s job to make that he represents ALL his constituents and not just a select few.

- #indyref: 36 questions which helped me decide which way to vote
I do not understand why people living in Argyll & Bute think that independence will be good for them.
The MSP’s at the Scottish Parliament could not give a monkey’s about the rest of Scotland.
If you do not believe me then ask yourself a simple question.
There have been problems with the A83 at the Rest and be Thankful since 2004 yet what have the Scottish Government have done about resolving the issue. Answer; Nothing.
As far as the Scottish Parliament is concerned Argyll & Bute is a case of “out of sight out of mind”.
Michael Russell has been a disaster as the MSP for Argyll & Bute.

If the UK Government had let HBOS and RBS go bust then NCH would have been the first to complain.
It will be interesting to see how people in Scotland manage to survive in an independent Scotland with no unsecured borrowing.
Tenant farmers in Scotland will certainly have a big problem when the banks ask for security to cover the cost of their unsecured overdrafts and loans.

It is not surprising that the Yes Scotland supporters are encouraging mob rule throughout Scotland. That is the only way that they operate. The Yes supporters love to dish it out but they cannot take criticism and therefore they resort to mob rule.
That is why the Better Together meetings have been invitation only to avoid them being hijacked by mobs of so-called Yes supporters trying to intimidate the Better Together supporters.
On Islay a so-called No voter and member of the Better Together campaign jumped ship to Yes campaign. She threw “a hissy fit” because she did not receive a personal invitation to a Better Together meeting in Bowmore Hall in July 2014.
Believe it or not we have Yes supporters mob rule on Islay!
I attended a Labour for Independence meeting in the Gaelic College in June 2014 where the main speaker was Dennis Canavan who is “Old Labour”. No and undecided voters were invited to attend the meeting to ask Dennis Canavan questions about Independence.
However that is not what happened. The meeting was hijacked by the Yes Islay supporters who howled down questions asked by the No and Don’t members of the audience.
At one point I had to tell a Yes Islay supporter “to sit down and shut up” to allow me to make a statement and ask my question.
The problem is that Islay has a lot of residents who think they are “big noises”. They love to dish it out but they cannot take it!
- Indy, the banks and the Scottish economy
The banks who have their registered head office in Scotland carry out 95% of their business outwith Scotland.
Therefore these banks will move their registered head office out of Scotland. Staff who currently work in the RBS head office at Gogarburn will have to relocate to the new RBS head office outwith Scotland. Bank of Scotland staff working in the head office departments in Edinburgh and beyond will probably have to do likewise.
The new TSB Bank has its registered at 31 George Street Edinburgh which is the old head office of TSB Scotland.
These banks will still maintain a branch network in Scotland but that may not last long if most of their customers move their savings to a bank in the rest of the UK as there is no lender of last resort an independent Scotland.
Should a Scottish bank or financial institution (assuming there are any left after 24th March 2016) get into financial difficulties and require a bailout the Scottish Government will have to supply the funds. If the Scottish Government do not have the required funds then the bank or financial institution will go bust and the customers will lose all their savings.
I already have a savings account with an English bank in case I have to transfer my savings there to keep them safe thanks to the protection of the Bank of England.
- BBC indy debate: incoherent uncontrolled unedifying bear pit
Glen Campbell should stick to being an interviewer on BBC because he was useless as the so-called independent Chairman of the televised referendum debate last Monday.
Glen Campbell is chairing a Question Time debate in Bowmore Hall Islay this Friday and no doubt like all the other referendum meetings on Islay it will be hijacked by the Yes Islay supporters.
Anyone who attempts to speak up at a public referendum meeting on Islay in favour of maintaining the Union is howled down by the Yes Islay supporters who do not believe in free speech. It is their way or no way!
When I watched the BBC Scotland news at 1.30pm today I saw that a heckler had been ejected from a Better Together meeting in the Marryat Hall Dundee. I immediately thought one of the Yes Islay supporters was on holiday in Dundee and then I recognised the heckler. His name is Mike Barlie who lost his job as a teacher after a court case, as he was heavy handed with some of his pupils and aggressive towards some of his fellow teachers.
