I havent heard anything to that effect yet however a collegue of mine went to City Chambers on Monday to have the documentation signed off and was told to come back in 6-8 weeks as there was such a demand.The deadline is September 1st.The Police quoted her the same for an appointment.A wee bit of forward planning wouldnt have gone amiss.

I think anyone who wants to restrict booze is going to be called a hypocrit given the he-haw being made over the Diageo affair.

There's a lot of political posturing about Diageo.

To imagine Scottish Enterprise will find a business case where Diageo couldn't is fantasy UNLESS a whole bunch of public money is injected. At some point somebody is going to have to do a cost/ benefit analysis and either pay up or not. The sooner that's done the sooner the workers will learn their fate, one way or the other.

Aye, aye, I know, that phrase makes me cringe..

I pruned the thread. Your posts got caught in the crossfire, insofar as they made no sense in the absence of a context. Nothing personal. I took out posts from three Mods at the same time. :)

As predicted Scottish Enterprise reckon money to keep Johnny Walker in Kilmarnock - about £60 million - and even that 1) wouldn't save all the jobs in KIlmarnock and 2) would impact on the planned jobs in Fife.

Having encouraged Scottish Enterprise to pay BDO Stoy Hayward £75,000 for "an independent consultants' report into Diageo's plans in Scotland"; East Ayrshire Council has decided it doesn't like what they've been told so they're doing their own :roll:
