I wonder what has happened to ‘good old Kintyre 1′?

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

    I think you’re insulting Anne Baird.
  • Cumberland Avenue Helensburgh 8.30am this morning – in go council contractors under police escort
    Good news – but it’s unthinkable that the council won’t recover its costs (in full, including existing and future legal costs) from the ‘developers’.
  • Patricia Ferguson asks about those evacuated during Red Road Flats blow-down for Games ceremony
    More than an ‘interesting story’, richard, sounds to me like a cry from the heart – and fits in with my impression of Glasgow, in terms of the City Council – all fur coat and no knickers would be putting it ever so politely.
    If you don’t believe me, next time you’re in town have a good look at the state of disrepair of the pavements, even in busy areas of the city centre (for example, Hope Street between Central Station and Sauchiehall Street, maladministered by Glasgow City highways Department.
    Take a seat at one of the pavement cafes on the north side of Royal Exchange Square, and have a good look at the state of gross disrepair of the carved stonework on the cornices of the old Royal Exchange (now the Museum of Modern Art, maladministered by Glasgow Council Museums Department)
    Walk from Buchanan Bus Station along Cathedral Street to the Royal Infirmary, and find your way repeatedly blocked by massive advertising panels like giant tombstones, set at right angles to the street bang in the middle of the pavement, where they cause the maximum obstruction (maladministered presumably by Glasgow City Highways Department, probably to someone’s enrichment)
    I propose that these things are blown up, as a service to the common people. But the Glasgow city councillors would’t know about the common people, would they (outside election time)?

    I wonder if perhaps the tow parted, and Balder Viking is now just escorting – Wilson Gdynia is fishtailing, whereas the tug is on a straight course.

  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.
