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.

  • Michael Russell’s message to Argyll
    I’m surprised that you didn’t contact the UN Secretary General, the President of the United States and everyone in between Treble T.

    You are clearly a man who focuses on the extremely important issues of life to the exclusion of all else.

    Fair play to you Sir.

  • Gordon Brown to stand down from Westminster at General Election
    Newsroom, how on Earth can anyone say that Gordon Brown is going out on a ” high ”

    This is the guy who presided over the collapse of the British banking system.

    The guy, like Darling is getting out before he is chucked out.

  • Retiral at the first fence – Salmond will not challenge Danny Alexander
    And I suspect a scalping there will be Newsroom – but for whom will the bells toll.

    The SNP are in the strongest position they have ever been in and if the current polls remain, which is more than likely, there will be none or next to no Labour and Lib Dem scalps left in Scotland.

    Salmond will be a fantastic asset to the post May 2015 phalanx of SNP MPs that will be heading to Westminster and I think everyone would love to see the big beast back in Westminster – save maybe David Cameron who will by now be thinking about ordering super strength pampers.

  • Possible game changer: Prestwick Trumped for Turnberry – and more?
    This does sound like a goodly dose of marketing blurb – not that that is always a bad thing.

    Yes Prestwick would be an ideal place for upmarket well heeled golfers to land their private jets, but so is Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen.

    It takes a lot of landing fees to run an airport and surely no one is suggesting that well heeled golfers will sustain Prestwick Airport as part of the Trump Empire.

    What is most likely is that Trump with his involvement with Turnberry would like to market Prestwick as part of the Trump Estate…….and you can imagine marketing along the lines of trumpeting the benefits of gatewaying Trump Turnberry through Trump Airport.

    I mean John Lennon doesn’t own Liverpool Airport nor does John F Kennedy in New York – but they carry the name.

    So to get this in perspective, what I suspect we’re looking at is the Donald wanting to loan Prestwick the Trump name to promote his involvement in Turnberry.

    It might help tourism at Turnberry, but so might marketing Prestwick as Rabbie Burn’s home airport where he used to fly in to play golf at Rabbie Burns Turnberry Golf Course.

    There, and here was me thinking the Donald had chucked Scotland – but now he’s back, maybe he should lend his name to windmills – because he probably realizes now that he’s not the only windmill in town.

  • Sturgeon now SNP Leader as Hosie tops poll for Deputy
    Who is kidding who newsroom when you say the ” increasingly impressive Scottish Conservative leader, Ruth Davidson ”

    You’ll be telling us Eggie Murphy will be the next First Minister next.
