Tell us about Ward 5′s Iain MacDonald, Newsroom.
Your enthusiasm for him makes me suspect that he was flying false colours, and he’s actually a closet SNP.

- Well, he had to be selected, didn’t he, as Mike MacKenzie’s brother-in-law.

Newsroom’s right. The electorate were “baying at the gate” to get rid of the Auld Administration and replace it with the New Brooms that they thought would Sweep Clean and Make a Fresh Start.
Unfortunately, it turned out that none of the newly elected SNP Fresh Start Councillors had the faintest idea which way up to hold the Broom; let alone how the Broom should be deployed, depending on whether – at various points – they were being told that the Broom’s bristles looked better UP or DOWN.
So now it seems that we’d all just like to be comfortably back where we were, with Councillors who’ve had years of experience taking up the reins again – possibly alongside others who could share the responsibilities and maybe bring in some new thoughts.
Are we here yet??
Will next week’s full Council meeting bring this to a final close?

Errrmmm??? … Didn’t Dot stand as an “Independent” in the Council elections? I seem to recall almost being seduced into voting for her because of the respect in which I, too, held the late Cllr. MacDonald – a man of principle who always put the interests of his constituents before those of party politics.
But before I put my cross in her box I hesitated and, obviously rightly, doubted the integrity of her “Independent” stance.
I sent her a sincerely meant condolence on the death of her Good Man. It’s a very great pity that she’s sullied his memory in this way.
