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?

- Councillor Breslin removed from administration by unconstitutional Leaders’ protocol?
So we seem to have only two councillors in Argyll with Balls to stand up to this type of menacing behaviour by the leader of the pack as they say?
On being elected councillors have to sign a code if conduct which by this stage should be more than enought, so what is the wording of this new policy? If all other sheep have signed up to this policy which I gather is only a Argyll and Bute issue of herding councillors to tow the doctoral line.
What’s tbe point of having to look after and feed a flock of sheep if they just vote as they are told too? If only my house staff didn’t question my demands and the manor and order in which I want things done life would I fear be longer for me, looks like the burgh has two quality councillor sitting on the side lines again, what a real problem this is. Maybe send the flock off to war?
For the love of money, you can buy almost anything it’s just a pitty were paying again for it.
- SNP gain a councillor at Argyll and Bute
Ah thank you, must tell the house keeper to stick up on gravy. That’s what I had forgot. Is there a reason that this rule has not been effected ? Seems a mis placement of trust really
- SNP gain a councillor at Argyll and Bute
When in gods name are we going to have less mouths to feed on Baboon Island. The amount of money wasted on these people has got to added up and deducted from the obvious sweetie money that is readily available on this Island.
- Bitter alone, Salmond now a declared guerrilla leader in charge of government
My goodness, wait till I get this straight in my old head. We have on one side “bitter alone” I take it the ones that didn’t get get independence, and the “No” voters that lost because we didn’t get more powers as per the promises of the three party leaders,
I personally think that A Salmond is the only winner out of this actually as it grieves me to say.
Anyway if you still reading this the referendum was nt about a vote for SNP and as they have almost wiped out the party and the area of Argyll not many would vote for them here now. So who is left to support once Labour self explodes in Scotland after being unable to honour it’s Vow to the Scottish people?
Think I need to go for a lie down now, but answers on the other side of the fag packet as it looks like they only used one side when making up this madness , you couldn’t write it could ? Well you could have if it was anything but a lie.
P.s bought the boy a new spade
