The whole executive department should be turfed out …

The whole executive department should be turfed out and replaced with council officers that will carry out their duties honestly
. Here is my last letter to Sally Loudon. I am willing to debate with her the dereliction of duty to disabled people by her and her cronies. My shell of a body has more life in it than her whole team. Dead lice move faster than her.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………. I am 70 years old, and I suffer from spinal injuries, heart disease,(2 valves are beyond repair) and I am also an ex mental health patient. I have sought local authority support when I was awarded the middle rate of disability allowance.
I have worked tirelessly for the Community Care act to be implemented. I have chaired a meeting in Glasgow with Lord Tom Clarke, the then Minister in charge of the act. It was a privilege to have a discussion in Edinburgh with lord Alf Lomas, organised by SAMH. I was an executive member and a member of the executive of GAMH. Lord Lomas got into statute the ( Chronically and Sick and Disabled Act (1970)(1972 Scotland). I have also chaired a meeting With Ann Begg MP at a fringe meeting. The most appreciated help I got was from George Galloway MP of kelvin at the time and from Journalist, Dorothy Grace Elder SNP (MSP) to both of them, I am deeply indebted
All campaigners resent being labeled ” Disabled” we are abled people with impairments” We also respect the dual responsibility of the local authority in ensuring clients needs are provided for. And budget properly tax-payers money in that process.
We cannot allow this duality to be hostage of the black arts of “Machiavellian Deceit” of carrots and sticks practiced by council officers Sally Loudon, Douglas Hendry and Jim Robb.
CEO, Sally Loudon foolishly boasts she has made savings of 15% which is the criteria of central government but what she has omitted in that equation the fact to acheive she is charging in my case and all others 75% of their disposable income. The Westminster Princes and Princesses get their carrot blood money and she using the stick to cudgel the most marginalised section in Argyll 75%. 5 times her amount.
You could not make it up. She is a disgrace
Al Capone only took 10% and the pimps in Glasgow’s red light area, Cadogan St, take 50% of the working girls monies. These dregs of humanity are called “stickmen”. Sally Loudon “the argyll stickwoman” has an ironic twist to it .
All this could have been avoided if Jim Robb had carried out the statutory requirements to engage and consult with all. He choose to ignore groups that were run and and controled by disabled people and opted to only consult with the voluntary sector care groups and deny the views of the Disability Movement. He has made no effort to assist the set up of a regional group run and controled by disabled people themselves.
I challenge Sally Loudon and her cronies to a public debate on the mean testing and Disability Rights in the Corran Halls Oban whenever she surfaces. By Larry Nugent

  • I have posted enough on this thread and I thank the moderators for their forbearance. In my moving on I pass on the Sally Loudon Clan’s motto,Non dormit qui custodit- “The sentinal sleeps not”
    Have a good laugh and a nice day.
  • Democratic Centralism (All power to the Executive Department) has failed in Eastern Europe, but thrives in north Korea,The Vatican, and now apparently the A&BC. The unethical, and unaccountable “Nadezhda Sally” the rusty iron wumman is building a wall of resistance to transparency and being open to engagement. Her authoritarian ego must be crushed or Stalinism will prevail.
  • The whole running of the executive department should be investigated. Sally Loudon has been asked by me, to put me before a committee that includes elected councillors as I have no respect or trust in her officers. her ineptness is breathtaking. And if any elected member feel they can kick my complaint into the long grass, they are mistaken as “I don’t do walking away”
    The letter below shows the insensitivity of messrs Loudon and Robb. I have hardly a breath in my body and consultants and the Lorn Medical Centre say I have five years to live that was 4 years ago this August.
    Jim Robb like the last time will make the venue in Lochgilphead. I cannot do the 39 miles and back in a schoolbus with screaming wains like the last time. Here is my reply to him This poor excuse of a council officer has not got the decency to reply himself.
    And Good Marning Yourself,Mary-Theresa Bulloch,
    I have clearly rejected any meeting with that poor excuse of a director for adult care called Mr Robb. It is infantile of him of going through the motions of only being seen and not acting. No, once was enough. He has cast the die so he will sit on his hands and laugh at me. Me thinks Sally Loudon has not got a clue about good practices or she would insist that the director and his management team got disability awareness training.
    Right enough if I was into masochism he would be ideal for me to have a brain meltdown. if I had a complaint against fishmonger’s prices, I certainly would not solicit the view of another fishmonger.
    I have continually requested that my complaint be dealt at committee level that includes councillors. I feel confident that what I put forward will not only be listened but acted on. Mr Robb has plastic ears and full of inabilities, and insensitive to the needs of all vulnerable people.
    When I get a positive response to that request, I will be able to advance my complaint.
    Larry Nugent council tax payer denied best value and good practice
  • I hope Sally Loudon falls from a great height. As it is plain the executive department must have had shared knowledge of this malpractice, if not crime. I totally disagree with Andrew Reid’s about terms of reference. Council Tax Payers want the plain facts,not a rigged terms of reference. Truth is abused by her department.So lets stick to the facts. The Executive need to be accountable for this misdemeanor/malpractice if not a crime.The sooner she falls off her broomstick with her fat bonus,pension and golden handshake the better and good riddance to the witch.

    Thanks Newsie for the fantastic coverage. I feel disenfranchised as a Yes postal voter. People know I was a devo max and would have voted No if armed with that knowledge before I posted.
    With the end result I am happy. No sour grapes. Well done the Noes. Choking on my ice cream and jelly
  • New councillor, Neil MacIntyre, clarifies position he will adopt at council
    NEIL, Could you enlighten us about the format of this “meeting”.
    Is it a public meeting in which the general public can participate in all the discussion and hear all the questions and answers? Who will be the main speaker from TIf?
    Is it only an information day with just an introductory meeting with no set structure of question and answers. Who will record this meeting and when will we get a feed-back?
  • New councillor, Neil MacIntyre, clarifies position he will adopt at council
    I am led to believe That The Labour Party,and The STUC are also loooking at the Nordic/Scandinavian model of elderly care provision. I do support that.
    Taken you are having a go at me and other elderly people for stating what we need. I, personally will not allow you to think and decide on my behalf. Involve us. Don’t talk down as you are apparently doing.
    Posters know you could be a prisoner to Walsh and Loudon and fellow traveler Brother McCuish is not worthy of being part of an alliance with the aspiring Keiron Green and you. Have self confidence, we know you better.
    You have apparently sided with him on decimating elderly care provision. You are doing his talk. He has never apologised for his partnership with the Tories to do away with said provision. I ask or plead with you to take council matters seriously and not be flippant and frivolous when representing my party on For Argyll.
    Because of time of night, I will not be able to do this important meeting, I hope someone raises the extra congestion of traffic this is going to add to a ready dire situation.

    Paying any amount for a personal assistant out of benefits will be hard on any recipient. But that is not the real problem.
    Argyll and Bute council’s Chief executive department have a responsibility to consult with all needing council service provision. That includes meeting groups run and controlled by service users and to date in Oban that has never been done presently . Maybe carers groups have access to consultation and negotiation but not service users.
    You know fine well in large conurbations, consultation is encouraged but A&BC rural areas are totally ignored and inept councillors don’t want to know the needs of service users and leave decisions to fit into the chief executive’s cuts agenda.
    I believe there is a possibility of a link club (Mental Health service users group) being started up in the defunct Shop-mobility premises at the railway car park Oban. If it is organised along the same concepts of Glasgow as not just a tea and bun club but one that service users can express their needs and be treated as equals in consultation.
    I hope your good self, Neil and Brother Roddy can grasp the thistle and make sure things begin to happen for service users in Mental Health
