"Prohibitive wage costs"? My arse! I bet they're barely above the minimum wage. They should try shedding some of the directors' salaries. Twats.

I have this image in my mind of a big lorryload of Buxton Spring Water being driven up to Glasgow, passing a big lorryload of Highland Spring Water being driven down to London. These politicos spout off about the environment but never get down to the nitty gritty of practical change at the grassroots level.

Yup, madder than a person with madness. "thewife"(c) has mentioned a personal boycott of scampi, which would be a sacrifice, however having recently gone through past comments, I know you have relatively strong feelings about this. Nevertheless I'm prone to think we could stroll along the beach to Troon, pay the fishermen say 20p per prawn and stroll home, shelling them on the way and have a fabulous economic dinner sooner than you could load a polystyrene package into a container.

Prawn/Langoustine Shelling is "economically unviable" Fucking lunatics - How long before its economically unviable for Troon fishermen to fucking catch them? Why don't Youngs fuck off to Thailand to catch the fuckers?

Never mind all that. Is there really a Conservative MSP?

And he's called Murray Tosh?

Messaline - yeah, indeed!

Steve - profits are profits, no matter what amount, so the wages are affordable to the company and I'm sure the directors' salaries won't be harmed as they sack the workforce.

JJ - another gap appears in the ozone layer from this act.

YP - a good summation of the madness.

Jim - nah, personal boycotts are not the answer - but, then again, it would make you feel better. I think you have a solution here, btw, with your plan to buy direct from the fisherfolk.

John - the stupid proportional representation system gives the Tories a few seats up there. Come on, you didn't know. If the system can get five nutty Trotskyists (I exclude Rosemary Byrne - although she is also showing tendencies of being mad these days) elected to the parliament, then surely no surprise that Tories are on the benches also. And, yes, great name, that one!

Murray Tosh's posters were excellent, they Read:

Conservative
Tosh

Of course we all knew that already.

I was depressed to hear there was a Tory Scottish MEP but hearing his name has really cheered me up!

Jim - nice one. Is he one of yours btw? For some reason, this has got me remembering when we were on the '87 campaign giving out leaflets and someone had to hold me back from the Tory candidate - what was his name again? And, more importantly, why was I getting so wound up by someone who was about to be very lucky to hold on to his deposit?

JJ (or, as my blog is now annoying labelling you, Anonymous) - it is a great name and very descriptive of his kind! In fact, it's given me an idea for a spoof blog, so cannae wait for my broadband shit to turn up on Monday!
