Comment posted Argyll First celebrate unanimous decision to return power to full council by Jnr Tick.
“When they finish the champagne , Argyll First might like to reflect on the fact , that thanks to them ,power in Argyll & Bute rests with a tightly whipped SNP group controlled by Michael Russell and SNP high command hellbent on destroying the United Kingdom as their number one priority”
Islay for ever, you say the SNP are hellbent on destroying the UK? It is not and never has been the SNP’s aims to have the UK’s best interests at heart. The clue to the SNP’s intentions or motives is in the the S and the N, the interests of Scotland the Nation. It is not to destroy the UK, why should they have any interest in the UK? The SNP, for their sins, a real Scottish political party who’s interets are solely for the people who reside in Scotland. If you are looking to apportion blame for the demise in the UK and its, in my opinion, eventual disintegration, take a long hard look at where we are today, the embarrassing and ever widening gap between rich and poor, depravation in our towns and cities, lack of opportunity for graduates/school leavers, retention and maintenance of the abhorent wmd’s at Faslane, lack of respect for authority, drug addiction, I could go on and on. All these ails whilst being governed by Westminster Tory, Labour, Tory, Labour,Tory when will we break this cycle, come on the level headed people of Scotland, time to put this wonderful country right, to lead the way. If a party looking after the interests of its county’s residents has the knock on effect of ‘destroying the UK’ then so be it, but the SNP cannot be blamed for the intentions it came into existence for in 1934.

- Just wondering where in my reply to ‘Islay for ever’s’ post did I mention the word instantly? Independence might however go some way to solving people’s inability to quote from posts accurately by getting Scotland’s education system back to the way it used to be, revered throughout the world. Sadly, like many other things here in Scotland, eroding, gradually becomming mediocre. Given time, in an Independent Scotland whichever government, be it Labour, Conservative, SNP or other, can implement real change, change that can revolutionise the way we all live, get back a sense of pride in where we live and who we are instead of a future of generations who are disassociated, disillusioned apathetic to anything that really matters in life. Jim B, what do people like yourself expect to see in a future Scotland as part of this wonderful UK? more of the same?, except even more of a decline I think. Why? Because the Unionists of this country, Scotland, expect radical change for the better will surely happen some time, some year, some decade, just keep putting the same old Westminster Labour then Tory governments in down south and they’ll see us all right, time to be brave and believe in your fellow countrymen and women that together here in Scotland we have both the resources and the intellect to make it work. I’m quite young, but admittedly and ashamedly have been naive to think Scotland lacked the attributes I have just mentioned for long enough, read to many rags, believed too many ill-informed anti-Independence people, but since the invention of platforms such as this, many of the myths of ‘paradise Union’ and ‘poor skint havnae got the intelligence Scotland’ can be quickly and easily dispelled. Incidently, the contempt shown to us by both the media and Westminster’s misinforming leaves a nasty taste in the mouth creating individualls like myself who will follow the Independence goal until my dying breath, if neccessary.

What changes are “the British people demanding”? In Scotland yes of course we are but the British people?
The rUK will vote Labour or Tory, what change will that bring?
Yes, UKIP are playing their part but this is because they are addressing one issue which appeases a section of the rUK electorate.
“The good thing is that the higher the SNP go the harder they will fall”
Anything to back this prediction up or is this just wishful thinking? We’ve been hearing that type of claim for ages now and look where SNP stand in Scotland. Bar events or Scotland gaining independence you and I are stuck with the SNP for the foreseeable future like it or not.

Last week I think, I posted several links to polls carried out since the referendum to date which showed you are ill-informed.
These polls showed if there was another referendum today there would be a small majority for YES when undecided were removed.
Do keep up before you misinform.

Waste of a post, no need to point it out it’s very obvious, content is night and day.
Don’t always agree with the real Simon but appreciate the reasoning behind contributions.
Fake Simon on the other hand contributes nothing other than bitter snide quips devoid of substance and worth. I know I’m touching a nerve when I read yours Fake Simon and the others who only have personal attacks in their repertoire. If you despise my contributions that much, shoot my arguments down with reasoned counter-arguments.

“The only positive thing about their existence is that they are highlighting an under current of intolerance in society that we should all continue to be wary of”
People, esp south of the border are becoming more uneasy with the UK’s EU membership. UKIP for all their many faults have at least had the guts to address an issue the other parties preferred to brush under the carpet. Farage is a straight talker, gives yes/no answers, how Heineken is that!
The media and main stream parties when UKIP first appeared on the scene tried to do what they usually do when something threatens to derail the gravy train – they deploy smear rather than address the issues UKIP raise.
I, other than the EU issue, an issue I’m still on the fence with, can very little common ground with UKIP, least of all their early days proposal to disempower the Scottish parliament, but they have now put a serious issue to the fore in British politics and for that alone, their emergence as a party must be acknowledged as a positive thing regardless of the outcome in 2017 EU in/out vote.

That’s just silly.
When you say fight, do you mean argue our corner? If so, you bet we will because we don’t have the luxury of the backing of a state broadcaster and/or MSM as advocates of our plight.
