Comment posted Council now deploys online ‘Spy Accounts’ in covert surveillance of local critics by Crazy She-Bat.
Is it just me, or do Black Jack and Fruit Salad not sound like they’re out of the same pack of sweeties? If you get my meaning LOL
I’m not an SNP fan, but I use this forum to vent my displeasure. I know there are people from across the political spectrum here also doing the same.
Do you actually have something to say about the Council admitting to spying? Or is it ok in your book?

- In this case Blackjack, the reporting on this site is just a follow-on from the story from the Herald.
There are undeniable facts already in that Jo Smith used the word “spying” in her presentation and that she said to a room full of people that she set up dummy accounts to carry out this spying on dissenters of the council.
Those facts have not been made up and now all we see is a lot of panicked back-pedalling from those desperately trying to cover their tracks.
I used to work for another council and indeed with people still working in A&BC. The majority of which are fantastic, some doing really horrible, stressful jobs for not an awful lot of money either. What has turned me so cynical to the management of this Council is personal experience. I have never encountered a more duplicitous, manipulating, inept, bunch of out-right liars and what is sickening is their false claims that they’re doing all this for our own benefit.
Wanted to go to uni myself when I was younger to study journalism, so with a wee bit of a green eyed monster, I wish you good luck with your studies.
- And if everything turns out to be true? What then? What action should be taken and against whom if it has gone higher than Jo Smith?
- Adrian, the facts are irrefutable. I have a copy of the Powerpoint and it is pretty clear.
Jo Smith’s presentation clearly says “spying” and a room full of people heard her say she set up dummy accounts to spy on people who were in opposition to the Council and being vocal about it.
What we have seen since this kicked-off is numerous attempts to cloud the issue and protect Argyll & Bute Council and perhaps Local Authorities in general in case they all get tarred with the same brush, or worse and are guilty of the same practice.
The truth is that no amount of back-pedalling or jumping on the grenade will change the facts. This Council spied on people. How far that practice went, is where the independent investigation needs to look.

Oh for goodness sake! Whether you are on one side or the other, it is completely obvious that this whole situation had gone beyond farcical and that James Robb’s position was now untenable and possibly some others as well.
Let’s hope this situation can now be resolved without the suidical idea of getting in with the Tories and LibDems and Argyll & Bute can get back to slamming the dodgy Officers at the Cooncil instead.
