Comment posted Launch of ‘Scotland Yes’ campaign contradictory, lacking information and out of touch by Jnr Tic.
“Independence is not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme – even if it was, I’d never believe it would actually end up in my pocket anyway.
– I feel very Scottish and do not need my country to have the label ‘Independent’ to reassure me of that fact.
– Decisions will never be made by the people of Scotland. Too many decisions are already made by Holyrood that do not reflect the will of the people they represent. The people wanted GARL, Holyrood told us we couldn’t have it. The people wanted a car ferry to continue in competition with Western – Holyrood told us we couldn’t have it. No-one wanted a Sainsbury in Gourock – Holyrood overturned the refusal.
If this is how a Scottish Government listens to the people, expect even more of the same post-separation. One thing that most certainly will NOT change in an Independence is politics. And that’s the problem”
“Decisions will never be made by the poeple of Scotland”?
“Too many decisions are already made by Holyrood that do not reflect the will of the people they represent”
Please allow me to point out that the last party the people of Scotland did not want the at the last general election was the Tories by a long shot yet look what we ended up with. Where is the democracy in that? A nation voting for almost every other party bar Mr Cameron’s lot, yet ending up with them and their subservient sidekicks. I honestly cannot think of another country who would accept this, and no wonder. We hear of people saying what is the use of voting?, how apt that statement is especially here in Scotland during general elections. At least an Independent Scotland would deliver democracy in ensuring the party which it’s residents voted for actually governed it’s country.

- Thanks Dave, good to have the oportuntity to partake, albeit in the minority, in attempting to redress what to me appeared to be an unbalanced swipe at the just and naturally progressive intentions of this Independence movement. It genuinely saddens me that people like the person who originally posted this article are just missing the point entirely regardless of how eloquently the present their point.
- “I shudder to think what will happen if the Scottish electorate votes for independence. At present most of the MSPS at Holyrood are just jumped up councillors”
Hope you are not shuddering too violently at the fact that the rest of the UK’s electorate voted for jumped up crooks with their snouts well and truly in the troughs at the sleazy and backward Westminster Parliament. I think you’ll also find that many of MSP’s either down there or up here have at some point in their careers held positions that you may find beneath you but have aided them in becomming what they are today, it certainly doesn’t make them any less able to carry out their duties as MSP’s. That said, be very wary of research chemists looking for a career in politics, history has now informed us.
- Mr Harvie of the Scottish Greens recently, and in my opinion correctly highlighted our obsession with economic factors if or when Scotland finally takes umbridge at being babysat. Voting for Scotland to run its own affairs should be more about a sense of respect for ourselves and how other see us, a pride in who we are. I would not care a jot if the erse was hingin oot ma troosers and I hadn’t two bob in my pocket, at least I could hold my head high safe in the knowledge that no pompous, self righteous and ill-informed etonian would accuse me and my fellow compatriots of relying on them and their compatriots for our very existence. Shame on those who have swallowed the poor, scrounging, uneducated and subsidised Scots propaganda. Time to wake up as there are absolutely no excuses given the information technology times we now live in.
- The derivation of a contributors background is inconsequential as the content of their posts should be of far more relevance. To highlight the chance coincidence that Dr Douglas McKenzie shares the name of someone from Canada who is a psychologist shows how petty some can be. If this so happens to be the same person then no wonder he has participated in this debate as there are certainly some contributors in here who would benefit from a few cognitive behavioural therapy sessions with Dr McKenzie given their compulsion to spout falsehoods about Scotland and its residents ability to do what almost every other nation on this planet can do, make use of their spine!

- Conundrums on ‘Challenge: see what you make of these VisitScotland statistics’
OK, feels like being back at school but gets the old grey matter limbered up.
Looking at the initial figures mentioned, 1882 overnight visitors including 540 visitors (presumably day trippers?
The percentages go on to say 66% spend one or more nights thus leaving 34% being day trippers surely. Now, 34% of 1882 is not 540, I make it 640 (ish)
It also mentions “34% stayed for 4-7 nights and 18% stayed longer”, 34% + 18% does not add up to 66% (The % supposed to have stayed for one or more nights!
What about “The age profile of visitors to Argyll & the Isles is similar to that of Scotland as a whole with 29% aged under 35, compared to 32% of all Scottish visitors”.
If one of the serious weaknesses is a grammatical error then should it not be Scotland’s visitors?
I give up, go on tell us Newsie.
- White smoke rises from Councillor Duncan MacIntyre’s chimney as two-man College of Cardinals settle a deal
“His action on Thursday is simply beyond understanding or defending; and would appear to have been executed without thought for those he led into territory they had never anticipated entering when they took office a year ago – and whom he has left beached”.
Newsie, good to see you’ve finally seen the light when most sussed Robb out a long time ago, except oor Mary on here.
Listening to several who had far closer contact with him it very quickly became obvious where his motives lay, hence his demise.
Your informer/source’s judgement prior to now has been well short of the mark.
- Strachur Post Office under threat of closure
I used to drive from Dunoon to use this p/o because it stayed open late.
Sandbank post office used to stay open until 9pm, that is if the particular member of staff on at the time knew how to operate system and process parcels etc., One or two of the less experienced could provide a very basic service but definitely better than no later service at all.
Like our banks, most post office’s opening times don’t always suit the 9-5 working day so looking forward to Sandbank providing the later service.

Your opinion, generally political, is going to be divisive regardless, and is what many of us “really dislike”.
Well researched factual information is greatly appreciated.

Herbie Dice – re your post dated 11th June 8.48
No need to apologise.
I am voting ‘Yes’ and will continue activism for an independent Scotland till the grave.
Pigeon hole me any way you see fit, Nationalist, social democrat, separatist but please do not mistake those of us who wish the country we live in to do what every other independent country takes for granted by aligning us with Nazism, a pathetic boring many times tried & failed weak inaccurate attempt to entwine us with that filth.
You say “Most intelligent and modern liberal people consider it an evil creed”.
The SNP should it be re-elected in 2016 post independence wish to keep Scotland a member of the EU, not very insular Herbie? Open borders, free to travel and integrate within EU member states.
The union you support has a government unelected by this country, Scotland, who wish to shut off movement of peoples from other EU states by wrenching UK from the EU appeasing the UKIP movement down south.
This sounds more insular and most definitely further to the right than an independent welcoming Scotland would be.
