    He said he would do whatever to get the North on the map and improve things. He was putting up signs in Lybster and knocking on doors.
    And what is wrong with a Tory I ask?

    From what I heard that was a while ago. Am just saying that Jamie Stone seems like a 'go getter'.... and that is what the North needs. Someone with Vision.

    I try to stay away from the mechanics of politics, I would always vote for the person, not the party.

    I have known Jamie Stone for a very long time and he is a down to earth straight talking guy.

    Our current MP is not only invisible, he has made it quite clear he is not interested in anything happening at "local level" and refers any enquiry to an MSP.

    Anyone with connected brain cells has got to be an improvement on our current situation.

    In this election to my mind the overwhelming aim should be to get rid of "The Member for Moscow Central" who is masquerading as our MP. All he seems to be good for is appearing on Russian TV or spouting garbage on Russia Today. His other claim to fame is of course for claiming the most expenses of any trougher in Westminster. If voting for Jamie Stone gets him out then the Jamie fellow has my vote.

    He has just been elected as a councillor so would need to resign if he becomes an MP triggering a by election at the cost of up to 35,000!

    Jamie Stone already has had years of being the MSP and go-getting and putting Caithness on the map and failed to do so. The electorate judged him on his record and rejected him in 2016 and he failed to get elected to public office, why should we trust him this time?

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    All Stone needs to do is get rid of this lying charlatan :

    One has to know/remember that many issues need the support of other elected Officials....Try as they may, Politicians can do their very best, and still not get a Consensus... there are many 'grey areas' in the Political field. A person may genuinely want to do something but cannot get the support.
    A walk in their shoes would be an 'eye opener'.

    Oh dear, it appears that Dr Brooks saw more in it than was intended.

    “The reference to the recently formed Caithness Maternity and Gynaecology Group in the leaflet was intended to communicate the scale of work being undertaken. I am sorry for anything that is wrong in the leaflet and any embarrassment caused for Dr Brooks and would like to give a categoric assurance that no implied allegiance to the SNP or indeed any other political party was intended.”

    I agree with The Horseman. It is very difficult to be in an elected position in government at any level and in general, it seems to me, whatever the issue, you are 'damned if you do and damned if you don't'. I think that the vast majority at least start out with intentions of working hard and doing good and no doubt get ground down by the system. Of course there are some that are not but they are a minority, I think. Also, I think that the above has just been a genuine mistake and has been retracted and an apology given. That should be the end of it surely? We all make mistakes and are all human! That's my 5 pennyworth done!
