Comment posted Argyll and Bute Planning Applications for week ending 22nd June 2012 by Willie Hutchison.
Of course an increase in planning fees will add to the choke off in construction. Indeed, at a time when people cannot move house, or indeed get on the property ladder because the banks will not lend, the logic of reducing the 20% VAT on home extensions could prove invaluable in getting construction folks back in a job. But of course such pump priming to get people back in work,is not a priority for our Westminster masters, or our local Argyll and Bute planning boys for that matter.

- On a different topic one wonders if there could be a sinister issue with regard to the recent collapse of the RBS and the National Westminster’s banking systems. In fact, whilst the bank may anodynely refer to the 3 day collapse as ” a glitch ” one wonders if in fact the glitch is a deliberate fire to ease records or delay payments. Indeed, when in comes to criminality one only has to look at the Leveson Enquiry where news International have have lost crucial e.mails held on overseas servers, whilst previously undisclosed executive director i.phones have now been lost. Yes, it is not unreasonable to suspect the worst in rotten and corrupt corporate GB.

- Scottish Leaders’ debate – a clear win for Davidson
Yes Sokay – it is an unusual question to roll off MK’s keyboards, and it’s not the type of thing most folks would raise out of the blue in the way that Malcolm Kirk has.
If MK thinks that there’s Tory child abusers all about he’s either delusional or more possibly he’s been exposed to something in the past involving Tory abusers that has stuck in his consciousness.
Not a pleasant comment to make.
- Scottish Conservatives demand SNP publish figures on impact of full fiscal autonomy
And before Jamie Black says it’s the fault of a) the Scottish Government or b) Nicola Sturgeon or c) Alex Salmond or d) all of the foregoing – can anyone advise if it is right that the London Treasury levies annually £30m VAT on Scotland’s Police and Fire services whilst no VAT is levied on other Police and Fire services elsewhere in the UK.
And can anyone advise if they consider it right that the London Treasury is refusing to respond to questions about this.
£30m annually would pay for around 750 policemen and 300 firefighters.
Distinctly anti Scottish I’d say but no doubt some wag on this blog will declare it’s a London Love Bomb to Jocko.

Murphy’s standing for Westminster…and here was me thinking he was wanting v to be First Minister.
Whoo hee – he’s keeping the Tories out
Me, I think he’s a trougher. And yes, he’s got less chance than the man on the moon becoming First Minister. And Tories, he’s a red one.
A Loon Ball waiting to be found out.

C’ Mon Newsie, you’re having a laugh. He’s nothing of the kind. Most folk wouldn’t have him in a lucky bag.
- The black arts of political spin betray SNP fears in Argyll & Bute
Newsie, don’t you think that Argyll and Bute voters will vote for the party that is best placed to protect Scotland’s interests at Westminster.
I don’t think voters, or at least the majority of them, will predicate their vote on a factionalised council.
I think we can say with some authority that Scotland does not vote Tory and that most folks are focused on ensuring how that doesn’t happen.
With a hung parliament being predicted, the SNP have made it perfectly clear that they would work with Labour on a ” supply and confidence ” basis to ensure that Scotland’s interests are best served.
A phalanx of SNP MPs at Westminster will be hugely influential and the electorate know it – as does Mr Cameron.
