Comment posted License charges for performances in Argyll and Bute: Russell warns of cultural threat by Iain Hurrel.
Important subject spoiled by aggressive undertones of point scoring against previous administration. Im very sure you would not have writen that, knowing that you have not already sorted it out.
Maybe you could now move on to the ferries and sort that out. However always good to know the out come before it happens.

- Yes Simon I’m sure that’s going to be the way, it does seem to be a sort of retirement plan or re shuffle thing for votes, but I think this time it will be diff, as most said or made out its not about the money anymore its about the area and I’m sure you will start to see Cllrs now forgoing these benefits / payments as a point of principle.
I don’t really have any political stand as it all seems to just get worse and the promises bigger and more out outlandish by the week, with as much back stabbing as poss.
What I find really annoying is newly elected Cllr’s with no track record to speak of slagging off Guy’s like Dick Walsh who most in Scottish politics could not hold a light to and only dream of a career / record like his. I remember only 30 yrs ago seeing Mr Walsh fill his car locally at the petrol station most mornings at around 7 in the morning and not always the same one (spread the love around)in a type of way? 30 yrs on its still the same, week in week out. I’ve never met another Cllr in all that time or seen one work so hard for the people of Dunoon, although it started before that i’m sure?
It makes me smile when you hear the trumpets of what we are going to do and how we are going to do it when we get in. Just that the trumpets stop not long after that and voices are not heard until the next election. there are Hard working Cllrs and that’s why they get back in, in most cases.
Personally I think Mr Walsh has done a truly incredible job of running the area in his time in office. Im glad that’s he’s not back in as Head of the Council as I think he may enjoy it very much more where he is now and has completed a very long shift for his area and ward. he;s better placed to actually make sure the administration get it right and stand by the election promises and not let them away with madness and really messing it all up.
The ferries thing will go away, but prob altogether now.
Anyway well done everyone that want to be a Cllr
Mr Walsh enjoy your new role of watch dog. Back to the pumps no doubt?

- The Castle Toward affair: more puzzles
Yes Allan, all these decisions are being voted through by the council not pushed by just one or two are they? So plenty know about it
- Michael Russell looks like the first SNP MSP to put a personal Plan B into action
Yes had breakfast with Mike the other day in the form of a leaflet. I did also have to keep checking if it was not a spoof. It did clarify that he does live in another planet. I just didn’t get it, but then the truth would have to have made mention of the no boats for Dunoon and actually thinking that its sorted by the Corusk, not even a little fix just a massive fail. Telling the good folk of Argyll that the SNP could run a council, massive fail. I’m not going to go on its well documented, just look around Argyll, turned us into a sub region about to crash. Should be throwing life jackets and handing out free seat belts for this pile up.
- Council Leader briefs councillors – confidentially – on Castle Toward
There must be a very good reason to have all councillors stand down and have a fresh start with new elections. Argyll is a laughing stock and its clear the council are not fit for purpose. But we sort of knew that?
- Tiree considering community buy out
Article in The Sunday Times about it today. Mostly pointing out that the Army will not be used this time against the islanders, as it was the last time
