  • Did the Princess Royal remember to curtsey?
  • ‘Illegal’ – needing planning permission? libellous? packed with porkies? – we need enlightenment.

  • Scottish Conservatives demand SNP publish figures on impact of full fiscal autonomy
    Machmaolain – and many others – seem to very conveniently ignore the fact that the ‘London establishment’ has acquired at least (if not more than) its fair share of embedded Scots over the last three centuries.
    And they also seem to ignore the existence of an ‘Edinburgh establishment’ that’s certainly done its bit for the recently much reviled ‘financial services’ sector of the British economy. And then there’s the charming history of big-time rottenness in the political elite (an inappropriate word, I know) of the city of Glasgow.
    But enough, let Machmaolain rant on.
  • Analysis of Gourock-Dunoon ferry services confirms imperative for change
    What nonsense – ‘the paying public’ are the reason for WF’s existence, and it’s created a very good service.
    The problem is in providing a decent passenger link between downtown Dunoon and Gourock station, either by bus-on-ferry or by dedicated pedestrian-friendly passenger ferry – and over what seems like decades now this has been suffering from an uncoordinated, fragmented, sometimes ill-informed and sometimes politically twisted state of chaos.
    And the efforts of the government seem really rather pathetic.
  • £1m of free rail tickets launch Abellio operation of Scotrail
    I expect that some of those ‘continentals’ whose trains are being run by British companies think it it would be nice if they weren’t.
  • £1m of free rail tickets launch Abellio operation of Scotrail
    Perhaps MM’s ‘bloody minded Dutch management’ was a reflection of a similarly bloody minded Scots workforce?
  • £1m of free rail tickets launch Abellio operation of Scotrail
    This’ll make headlines around the world.

  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.
