Comment posted The eurozone crisis and the Independence referendum: time for proactive postponement? by JimB.
Er – remind me who led us into the financial crisis. Was it not Gordon Brown and Alastair Darling? Both canny Scots as far as I remember.
Scotland it seems has no monopoly on canniness or common sense.

- Save Castle Toward campaign brings it on home to Walsh and MacQueen
I think that you might be dealing with semantics, FM. There is probably a legal definition of what constitutes a “Valuation”. What Savilles produced was an “opinion” on what they thought it would fetch in the current market and they should know, it is their business after all.
The cost of a full valuation I imagine is much higher than that of an opinion and the project does not have a bottomless money pit.

Short memory JT or is it a selective memory?
The day before the indyref the poles were showing a close result, probability of a Yes victory. I remember you crowing about it. In actual fact the No vote carried the day decisively.
What makes you think the Polls are any more accurate now? (apart from Tartan Specs!)
- Outright win for John Armour and SNP in South Kintyre
John Armour may well be a good or even a great candidate and become a good or great councillor, I wouldn’t know as I have never heard of him. Ditto the person from Elgin.
But given the chaos the SNP created in the council after the last local elections, the lies and smoke and mirrors of the referendum and how little the party has done for the country in 7 + years of government, I am amazed that many of the electorate still vote for them.
Emigration begins to look attractive.

“That tanker is recording a steady 48 knots”
Er – are you sure? 48 knots is around 60MPH, must be the fastest tanker in the world!
I suspect a decimal point has gone AWOL.
