  • Asda Should Apologise to Scotland!
    Asda released a statement less than a week before the referendum on Scottish independence stating prices will rise in an independent Scotland. This clearly will have affected how people voted and I would suspect more so among pensioners many of whom are vulnerable. It is important that corporate businesses do not use their position to influence the public by making statements intended to affect the outcome of a democratic vote. Andy Clarke should apologise for releasing a statement intended to affect the outcome of the referendum on Scottish independence and give assurance that Asda will never publicise another statement which is likely to affect the outcome of the democratic process. Andy Clarke will be presented with the choice, admit that you had no justification in what you said on behalf of Asda or watch the power of social media take you down.

  • Don't Step Down as First Minister!
    Alex Salmond has chosen to step down as the First Minister of Scotland announcing this hours after Scotland's Independence Referendum. Regardless of whether you voted "yes" or "no", this is the man who fought and won us the chance to decide our future and Scotland's future. Scotland needs a leader like him for the future to keep making sure we get to choose how our country is run so please sign the petition and ask him to stay!

    Save Our Number 36 Bus Service
    The proposed cuts to bus services would severely restrict people's ability for travel: • to and from work • visiting friends and relatives • To access education and training • access to hospitals, doctors, dentists and other medical services • access to leisure activities including town and countryside locations Fewer buses will mean more traffic congestion and delays which affects all of us.

  • London
    Upgrade the A82 (Glasgow - Inverness)
    1. This is a lifeline road for the west coast communities. The A9 is an unacceptable alternative. 2. Their are far too many accidents - many fatal - on this road 3. Between Crianlarich and Fort Augustus there is no real alternative route following the many closures this road suffers. 4. Lorries and buses/coaches frequently have difficulty passing; in particular on the Loch Lomondside section between Tarbet and Inverarnan. 5. The road surface does not meet 21st Century standards - despite many repairs/patches - costing drivers for the repairs to their vehicles.

  • Stop the Scottish police routinely carrying firearms
    If police carry arms routinely, this will fuel fear and criminals might arm themselves more heavily. Despite this, a number of police officers (around 300) are now routinely carrying sidearms while on patrol in much of Scotland. Armed police officers have been seen in a bakery, in a branch of Aldi and at a routine traffic incident in Glasgow - all incidents where it was unnecessary for the officer to have a firearm by his side. Until 2009, firearms officers had to keep their weapons in a locked safe and have a senior officer’s authorisation to take them. Firearms officers should revert back to this practice, because it is not necessary that they take their arms on routine patrol.

  • Kirknewton
    Exit from Dalmahoy and Ratho (road opposite) onto A71 is life threatening and one day someone will die and then it will be too late. An offer of a SLOW DOWN sign is not good enough after 15 yrs of complaining.The morning rush hour traffic is horrendous with no one giving way and the cars pile up the roads on either side. Maybe someone could just try this out and see how they feel risking their lives just trying to get home.
