Comment posted First Minister announces ‘radical rethink’ on land reform by Graeme mccormick.
Finance to fund land acquisition is finite. Surely the simple way to resolve the land issue is to take the value out of it?
Suggestions as to how we achieve it without infringing human rights please!

- Great responses! Just as the Referendum debate provides an opportunity for land reform so it also opens minds to other fundamental reforms such as access to justice, honest money, a new definition of “family” and state guaranteed citizens income.
It would be a great shame if those opposed to Independence did not join the wider debate on these and other issues. Independence must not be an end in itself

- New Scottish Welfare Fund statistics show level of applications from Argyll
From a cursory glance I can’t see any statistics showing how many of the applications came from folk in employment and if they are paid below the Living Wage.
Care, retail and tourism sectors which make up a big part of the A & B economy are assumed to struggle to pay the Living Wage. However there are employers in these sectors who are accredited Living Wage employers which suggests the business models of those who don’t are questionable.
An initiative to increase Living Wage rates should be an integral part of any campaign to repopulate A & B.
- Has Sturgeon ‘red line’ forced MoD evaluation of Pembrokeshire as Trident submarine base?
Forget the Daily Mail nonsense the Labour Party policy forum in Milton Keynes before the Referendum parked the motion to scrap Trident by nearly 50 branches. That will come up again.
More interesting is the MOD announcing the need to sell more property and assets. Public owned land on the Lower Clyde must be retained even if no longer used by the MOD as there is very little publicly owned land to develop a global port. Successful port expansions in Europe are in countries which have nationalised ports. These countries take a long term investment strategy than the quick buck mentality of private port owners. If the MOD do sell the Scottish Government must buy in the public interest.
