Its a b###dy mess. Far too complicated for an important event like local(binding) elections. In this case Donald Melville surely suffered and just seems wrong, and this would doubtless be replicated the length and bredth of the country.
Time to get back to individual councillors for each ward as more folk standing these days due to reasonable salary and expenses. For democracy to be seen to be done it must be understood, and currently its far from that.
I daresay no particular party suffered more than others but thats not to exonerate this daft system.
thanks for your explanation mind you Ewan.

Need to put on subtitles then John as you failed to understand that Jackie put on a sterling performance. Jim Murphy will bring an extra edge also as he is sharp as a tack, much in the mould of your former colleague Roddy McCuish.

‘Disastrous ex snp leader’ – you would not say that if you admitted the excellent ward councillor had been a help to all in his ward, a fact which you will never appreciate, He is a man of the people who is the snp’s biggest loss among many others. you know NCH very few will agree with your constant sniping at the most able and popular councillor for a long time. You havent a clue hen.
