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.

    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.

  • Former CBI Scotland director to head Conservatives Tax Commission
    Iain McMillan one of Scotland’s respected public figures.

    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.

  • Sting on sticky fingered Straw and Rifkind: the murk thickens
    Newsie, surely your headline could have been that ” The merde thickens ”

    The French appears so much more descriptive as does the German ” mist ”

    Whatever way, most folks, save for a few regular posters here, would consider Malky and Jack to be in the ” doo doo “

  • Sting on sticky fingered Straw and Rifkind: the murk thickens
    And meanwhile in the neighbouring burgh of West Dunbartonshire another ex Labour MP and now a Lord took up a non executive directorship with a bank and another Lord, post leaving his roll as chair of a select treasury committee on banking.

    And the two good Lords together – well one was Labour’s John McFall whilst the other was Michael Forsyth.

    And man looked at pig and pig looked at man and back again and guess what…..they were both the same.
