Comment posted Argylls to be scrapped – along with the best recruiting battalion in the army by Iain McCallum.
I am repeating myself, but there are Tory grandees spinning madly in their graves at this pathetic excuse of a Tory government’s destruction of the British Army. My understanding is that they want the TA to supplement the Regulars. That will never work. With due respect to the Terriers, they can never be as well trained and prepared as regulars. And worse still, what employer in their right mind will employ, or allow their staff to join, the TA? TA troops will be away from their full time job most of the time to cover the short fall, leaving an employer to cover for the gap that will be created.
As an ex-Royal Marine and a (soon to be) ex-Tory voter I could weep

- 2007 racist sectarian jibe comes back to haunt Argyll & Bute SNP candidate
The same old nonsense was brought up down here in Wales. Comments made, 8 years ago in this case, and 10 and 14 years ago down here. Surely it is hardly relevant for a one off comment if there is no pattern of behaviour. Reeks of desperation in the opposition
- Alarmingly revelatory Police Scotland statement on Inverness armed officer incident
Down here in Wales my understanding is that firearms officers are routinely armed with handguns on their hip and larger firearms locked in cabinet in the vehicle. They are often sent to calls when no-one else is available and don’t leave their pistols (or Tasers) in the car. And to be honest there are so few of them, and we rarely see them that no-one really gives a hoot. The problems is exacerbated by the fear of the Police Service of saying it as it is, because they are afraid to upset anyone.

- The Seven Leaders debate
Hear hear. We are going down the American route of personality over policies. If you base your precious vote on the sound bite displays over a mere 2 hour period it shows what is wrong with our democracy. I will qualify my views with the fact I could not bring myself to watch this, same as I can’t listen to QT and PMQs.
- One Vote for the Union – but why?
I thought they were still investigating whether that was the case or not. Seems that fact can be anything you choose it to be, regardless of evidence. That is why people, usually dead, are sentenced at the court of public opinion nowadays, rather than courts of law
