Comment posted Scottish Government support for Arctic Convoy medal – but why not award a Scottish medal? by Iain McCallum.

Absolutely scandalous. And the longer it goes on the louder the condemnation should be. These few (and getting fewer) brave (mad??) men that have been recognised by Russia (the enemy?) and totally ignored by succesive governemtns of this once Great Britainand the efforts they gave within living memory should bring endless shame on this lot espaecuially who i believe promised to present them with medals.

  • Landowners’ statement on Land Reform Bill
    From my tuppence worth, there must be more important and urgent matters that the government could be concentrating on. Seems a bit like the Liebour lot in London who spent 700 hours on their class warfare hunting with dogs act. Hope the MSPs get on with those matters that effect the majority of the population
  • 2007 racist sectarian jibe comes back to haunt Argyll & Bute SNP candidate
    The same old nonsense was brought up down here in Wales. Comments made, 8 years ago in this case, and 10 and 14 years ago down here. Surely it is hardly relevant for a one off comment if there is no pattern of behaviour. Reeks of desperation in the opposition
  • Alarmingly revelatory Police Scotland statement on Inverness armed officer incident
    Down here in Wales my understanding is that firearms officers are routinely armed with handguns on their hip and larger firearms locked in cabinet in the vehicle. They are often sent to calls when no-one else is available and don’t leave their pistols (or Tasers) in the car. And to be honest there are so few of them, and we rarely see them that no-one really gives a hoot. The problems is exacerbated by the fear of the Police Service of saying it as it is, because they are afraid to upset anyone.

    RIP Sir
  • The Seven Leaders debate
    Hear hear. We are going down the American route of personality over policies. If you base your precious vote on the sound bite displays over a mere 2 hour period it shows what is wrong with our democracy. I will qualify my views with the fact I could not bring myself to watch this, same as I can’t listen to QT and PMQs.
