Did the Princess Royal remember to curtsey?

  • I wonder what has happened to ‘good old Kintyre 1′?
  • ‘Illegal’ – needing planning permission? libellous? packed with porkies? – we need enlightenment.

  • Sturgeon’s decoy of The Herald on indyref 2 torpedoed by herself
    So the SNP is a nice cuddly outfit with a penchant for dumping on local councils when it suits them, and sending out a pack of attack dogs to browbeat any resistance?
  • Sturgeon’s decoy of The Herald on indyref 2 torpedoed by herself
    No – I’m not a ‘little Scotlander’, I’d like to be part of a federal system, and retain a say in what happens in Westminster.
    Just this morning BBC R4 is putting it about that Cameron’s losing interest, and in the event of being out of office would be replaced in his party by Boris the Bounder. It might be tempting to wish Scotland totally free of the risk of the influence of that man – but I think that’s an unrealistic wish.
  • Lindsay Mackinlay: beaver reintroduction positive but controls necessary
    In Knapdale – as far as I know – the beaver population hasn’t had any impact on agriculture, or forestry other than the flooding of a small area of woodland and forest track by the raising of the Dubh Loch near Loch Coille-Bharr.
    But what’s the story on Tayside? It seems that quite a significant beaver population has got established, almost ‘under the radar’ – and does this indicate that the impact on farming and forestry has been minimal so far?
  • Gallipoli: An Irish voice sings of Australian casualties on a Turkish peninsula in a western war
    A remarkable number of the ‘common people’ seem to be willing to put on blinkers and be led by the nose by their politicians – in this country it used to be Labour manipulating the population of the Central Belt, and now times have changed and it’s the narrow Nats – and understandable disaffection seems to be persuading some folk of that old notion about the grass being greener on the other side of the fence.
  • Sturgeon’s decoy of The Herald on indyref 2 torpedoed by herself
    One thing that’s bothered me for a long time is the English etc – in the eyes of the narrow nationalists here – being tarred with the London brush.
    I can’t help thinking that if there’s a divide opening up it’s really between London and the rest of England and the UK – rather than just Scotland.

  1. Don;t know. Probably no more than exhausted campaigners throwing everything at it in the last day, with helpers who stick things up all over the place.

  2. Is it fair to publish something that is only heresay about two candidates, whoever they are? If you don’t have a clue what has happened why bother saying anything – unless, of course, you have a personal bias.

  3. See what happened there Lowry??

    Newsie comes on with a non-story – non attributed, no quotes and no evidence. You ask a more than reasonable question and the next two posters – Crazy and Stepehen ignore your poiint and comment on the Newsie’s non-story.

    Gawd help us all if these half-wit zealots get in…

    • Unionist posters?
      What are those?
      And does your correspondent, echoes of good old kintyre1, have any substantive evidence to support his implied charge?

    • It happens in the Dunoon and Cowal area also.

      We know who does it but they come out with excuses like “do you have substantive evidence to support this implied charge” or “it wisnae me, a big boy done it and ran away”

      But guess what? Their posters stay up!!!!

    • No, Simon
      That’s what Lowry meant.
      Pay attention, please.

      On second thoughts, the “Burn them!” should be deleted for Health and Safety reasons

  4. Pending the announcement of what constitutes an illegal election poster, a light-hearted post was responded to with a light hearted comment.

    In future such comments will be marked JOKE, to help those with a irony deficiency.

    Serious comments will be marked SERIOUS, to help those with a reality deficiency.

  5. Vivien Dance smiling benignly at the Princess Royal as both stood on the Victoria Hall steps, as seen on the front page of the Helensburgh Advertiser, when Mrs Dance had been explicitly banned from the property because of the election ‘purdah’ – how does that shape up with the rules?

  6. Stpehen – but if you mark them JOKE – then they are supposed to be funny!!!

    The ‘light-hearted post’ and ‘light hearted comment’ were about as funny as week in jail.

    Have a good day :)

  7. Yes, Simon appears to have fallen into my troll-pit. Can I refer him to the sage advice of that great actor, Whil Wheaton?

    FWIW, outside my polling station in Helensburgh today posters for Dance, Mulvaney and Robb, but not anyone else. Also bonus sighting of Mulvaney wandering down the street, looking a little lost.
