Comment posted Oban Bay Marine presentation to Holyrood Cross Party Group by Treble T.

This Hitler video has been used by different people on many occasions.
Last year there was an excellent version produced by a Dundee FC supporter as a protest at the draconian 25 point deduction by the Scottish Football League given to Dundee Football Club due to Dundee FC going into administration.
The management of the SFL are so hopeless that they still do not have a laid down points deduction in their rules for a member club goint into administration.
If it had been Rangers FC they would certainly NOT have received a 25 point deduction.

    At least the Dundee FC version was not full of swear words!

  • SNP gain a councillor at Argyll and Bute
    phil.
    As one of his constituents I suggest that you try to shame your local councillor into resigning and standing in a by election in his ward representing the SNP party.
    It would be interesting to see how many votes Iain Angus Macdonald would receive.
    In my opinion councillors should no longer be paid an annual salary and we should return to paying them a laid down fee for attending statutory council meetings.
    That would encourage councillors who rarely attend council meetings to make more of an effort to attend otherwise they would not get paid.
  • SNP gain a councillor at Argyll and Bute
    Richard.
    I am surprised that you do not know about it.
    If a resident phones their local Service Point to complain about something such as a street light not working the call is transferred to the Contact (Call) Centre in Campbeltown where it is logged to justify someone’s existence and eventually repaired.
    Previously if a resident phoned in to complain to their local Service Point about a street light not working it was promptly repaired and usually within 24 hours.
  • SNP gain a councillor at Argyll and Bute
    In my opinion if a councillor resigns from the party he represented at the previous council elections then a byelection should take place.
    That might encourage councillors not “to jump ship” just because they feel like it.
    Iain Angus Macdonald was elected as an Independent Councillor and NOT a SNP Councillor at the 2012 Argyll & Bute council elections.
    If the had stood as a SNP candidate he might not have been elected.
  • SNP gain a councillor at Argyll and Bute
    Argyll & Bute Council could save themselves a lot of money if they got rid of that useless call centre in Campbeltown for reporting faults and allow residents to report any faults to their local Service Point where it would be dealt with more promptly.
    Unfortunately Campbeltown has empire builders who are sitting there trying to justify their own exsistence.
  • Fight for SNP Deputy Leader pits future against past
    In my opinion Keith Brown would be an ideal choice as SNP deputy leader as he has been a disaster as Transport Minister as far as the tourist providers on Islay are concerned.
    As a result of the Ferries Review in March 2013 after the Calmac 2013 Summer Timetables and been printed and distributed, Keith Brown the Scottish Government Transport Minister decided to divert the 9.45am sailing on a Saturday from Kennacraig to Port Ellen to Kennacraig to Port Askaig.
    The Hebridean Isles then sailed to Colonsay where it sat for three hours tied up a the pier at Colonsay doing nothing. It then sailed from Colonsay with a handful of vehicles back to Port Askaig and then on to Kennacraig.
    Saturday is the changeover day on Islay and as a result it is the busiest day of the week for ferries.
    The residents of Colonsay wanted a Saturday sailing from Oban not from Islay but Keith Brown sitting in Ediburgh noticed that there were two ferries serving Islay route and decided to send one of them to Colonsay to keep the Colonsay residents happy.
    Once again Scottish Government Ministers are clueless when it comes to dealing with matters west of Glasgow.

  1. “has the full hearted support of Oban businesses and the majority of Oban people.”

    How dare he say that without absolutely any evidence.
    Nearly all the people I know who live in Oban are dead against the idea. A few restaurants close to the bay may want it I admit.
    The bay (and its view) are for all of us. Not just for the gin and tonic brigade on their flash boats. Well done to the Councillors who are actively opposing the destruction of the historic ambience of Oban Bay.

    • W.S.:

      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?

  2. 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.

  3. I think the majority of the folk that live in Oban can recognise the hard economic sense of having a proper marina in the town and have powers of reasoning that extend beyond the cartoon stereotyping that appears to pass for thought with ‘WS’

    I do get the impression that there are people in Oban who hold long-standing grudges against some of the members of OBM’s board, and that this may also go some way to explaining the persistent lack of enthusiasm on the Council’s part.

    I presume everyone has seen the OBM/Hitler video?

    Time for some investigative journalism to see if these claims of self-interest are true and if not to put them to bed? Just a thought – I am bored with Spygate and its endless follow-ups now.

  5. Sorry to be a pain but who were the local councillors who spoke against the marina at the public meeting in McTs.Any takers, just to clarify the situation before the May3rd elections.Independent,SNP,liberal or maybe MacKay and Devon.
    Sorry I just can,t remember what they were that week.

    • If my memory serves me right, councillors from accross the spectrum voted not to support the OBM proposal in the location or form presented. Contrary to Jamie McGrigor’s statement above, the majority of Oban people were by no stretch of the imagination behind the plan. i dont know what circles the Tory list MSP moves in to make that sweeping assumption. Perhaps a ‘referendum’ needed!!!!
      If possible, (for a politician), could Neil Macintyre give his answer YES or No for pontoons between the piers.
      The seemingly never ending Chord issues in general are one thing, but the particular issue of Obans central waterfront is another where the council have got right.

  6. 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.

  7. Just flitted back to the corran halls CHORD meeting on Sept.2010.That gives us a better idea of the local councillors views.The one undeniable fact is that nothing has been achieved through Chord in Oban.So bring on the elections and lets see if nothing is what people want.
    Power to the People.
