Comment posted SNH warns motorists of deer on the roads by Tim McIntyre.

Is it a coincidence that the advert banner at the top of this article is for an ambulance-chasing lawyer outfit?

Maybe there is a good living to be made from suing dead deer…

    Of course they won’t condemn it, JnrTick – it was just an ‘isolated incident’ :-)

    Whereas the cowardly, heinous outrage perpetrated on the gentle, sensitive Jim Murphy can only possibly have been orchestrated through the evil cybernat web controlled by Aleggs Salmonella… etc. etc. etc.

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

    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.

    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.
