Comment posted Oban Bay Marine presentation to Holyrood Cross Party Group by Gerry Fisher.
Could you tell us all who are the Councillors who are actively opposing the proposal? Then we might see whether “nearly all the people you know” will agree with them on May 3rd?

- I dont recall any of the Councillors speaking against the proposal at the meeting – tho’ the editor of FA was there and may have a note. It was the staff man who was challenged by Skye McIntosh.
- The only evidence I have about the matter is the opposition from some of the Council paid staff who went out of their way to oppose the proposal when it was part of the Chord ideas. Their bent words against it (“Councillors shouldnt vote for tenders for the project because they would be surcharged if it didnt go ahead”) made me think that some people were opposed to it for their own personal interests rather than its advantages or disadvantages for the town.
They led some to oppose the idea bacause they thought that the business case had not been made, when without a tender figure there could be no business case.

Your “credible sources” are just incredible. Or you get these reports from within your head, for reasons I dont understand being unacqainted with psychiatric science.
But I do ask myself – “WHY?”

You really have to face the facts.
You are being fed LIES by someone whom you believe is in a position to know the truth about various matters in and around the SNP and the Council.
Either that or these stories come from your fecund imagination.
I only wish I knew who is your “source”, if anyone, and more importantly why he (or she)is at it. Perhaps you should ask yourself that question – it might put the “truth” in perspective.
But you, however, should face the facts, 2 out of 3 of your pieces in the last few weeks are based on nothing more than lies or imagination. This is not anything I, or you, would elevate to the standard of journalism.

Problem with “local” not “party” councillors is that they appeal for votes on the basis of the “good guy” label. They do not believe it is necessary to have a manifesto, or even the basis of a programme for government, certainly not for change. So they end up as the lobby fodder for someone like Cllr Walsh who knows he wants power, doesnt have to say what he will do with it, and can have the fodder wait to see which way he will jump before they make up what they would think was their opinion, even their minds.”Party” representatives are elected on the basis of a manifesto, a promise, to their electorste and are accountable to the voters when they wish to be re-elected. If you havent promised anything (except perhaps to do your best) it is a bit difficult to be held accountable for nothing specific.
