Comment posted Scottish Government support for Arctic Convoy medal – but why not award a Scottish medal? by Iain McCallum.

Absolutely scandalous. And the longer it goes on the louder the condemnation should be. These few (and getting fewer) brave (mad??) men that have been recognised by Russia (the enemy?) and totally ignored by succesive governemtns of this once Great Britainand the efforts they gave within living memory should bring endless shame on this lot espaecuially who i believe promised to present them with medals.

  • Lifeline for wildlife – 5p per carrier bag in Scotland from today
    I asked one of our idiot AMs down here why the tax on paper bags, and the reason given was that it was due to the process in producing them! It makes no difference really. If I want a bag I buy one, sometimes I take my own, and when I spend about £100 on shopping another £1 for 10 bags makes no odds here or there
  • MacAskill damaging record at Justice and Policing but right on Megrahi
    Most forces down here have gone to wearing black wickin (? Not witches!) shirts. Probably cheaper, but equally more comfortable while wearing for 10/12 hour shifts, and more practical. And Americans have got a cheek, when everyone down to security in shopping centres are carrying guns over there. Wearing a black t-shirt and protective clothing does not make them SWAT, although armed officers are regularly sights even down here in Welsh Wales
  • Out of control Salmond scores own goal on poll-tax
    I might still be in a minority of one (and escaped before the practise year), but in theory the Poll Tax was a good idea, the actual practicality and the fact they experimented on Scotland was less than good. Payment per house according to how many folk used the services ,rather than just according to the price of your house, regardless of how many folk live in that house. But hey ho, the 2 of us now pay the same as the next door neighbours who have 5 living in their house.

  2. I read this article with interest. Seems the Scottish Government are doing more for our Veterans than the UK Parliament(London)MoD put together.
    The National Defence Medal Campaign has beeen going on for a number of years now http://nationaldefencemedal.webs.com
    a National Defence Medal for ‘All’ in recognition of Service to Crown & Country Veterans & families of those who did serve proudly from WWI through WWII all conflicts there after, Korea ‘Cold War’ service, include National Service, onwards until present day.
    Very best of luck with the ACM Campaign.
