Love to share your vision, BoB, but post independence, SNP will still rule the roost - I don't see any fledgling parties standing in the wings and no-one with the political clout to start anything new off. Conservatives are unelectable (don't know why, anyone hazard a guess?), Labour will struggle....

Re: Well yer a boring bunch a fannies . . .

On the Scottish Independence point that you make, I don't agree that it would be an SNP, or socialist, bankrupt outcome.

Re: Well yer a boring bunch a fannies . . .

It is up to government to create equitable taxation systems and implement humane employment and wages legislation. And/ or up to us to not spend our hard earned with greedy corporations...

Re: Plan B lives again

Hi Nick Have only seen that there seems to be a few Dufours for sale - quite a popular make in Gran Canaria at any rate. There doesn't appear to be that many sub 30' boats at all unless they are day sailors or mobs. Most boats have arrived here under their own steam. A number of boats appeared prett...
