Comment posted Challenge to ALL ‘Independent’ council election candidates by neil macintyre.
When did I claim not to have seen the question?
I said I have not been asked the question by anyone I have talked to when out canvassing.Again if it was important to you why did you not contact me.FA are not standing,ARSN are not standing, are any of their members standing? Please enlighten us all, so us independents know what we have alongside us if we are elected.ARSN wanted us to commit to protecting our rural schools and communities which I was delighted to do but that doesn’t seem to satisfy some people.
What will it be next? what shop do I go to or what shampoo do I use. For the record it’s “Head and Shoulders”.
Interesting times ahead, I look forward to the bright new future that our party candidates are promising.Make sure you keep the leaflets just in case they don’t come up with the goods but I’m sure they wouldn’t tell us a lot of lies, would they?
Power to the People.

- For Integrity.
Not everbody on here who hides are frightened of losing their job so I think we can put that to bed.As for me having to rethink my priorities I think by actually standing for election is a very positive step and as this is my second attempt I think my commitment to my area is there for people to see.Any one who questions my priorities just needs to contact me in person not through FA or any other source.Look at all the fancy promises in the leaflets I,ll be keeping them so we can look back to see what actually happens.I was warned a few times by my bosses when I worked for the council about speaking out and ripping into what the council were doing or not doing more appropiately but I hate bullies of any sort with a vengeance so I ignore that.The only way to change that threat is to challenge it together.Remember Jo Smith,I won’t be forgetting the silence from the councillors over that.You see big George was’nt important to them but You can bet their leaflets will be looking for his vote.My priorities have never changed in my work for my community over the years so Neil MacIntyre will do for me.It is time for change.
Power to the People.
- Very nicely put Deirdre. Why would people contact FA if they want to ask me or any other candidate a question. Integrity what could FA tell you that I could n’t? My contact details are there for everyone to see whats the problem.
I must say the time must be here when we can do away with nicknames. We want our council to be open and connected with every part of the communities across Argyll but when people actually put themselves forward to try to improve things they are put under the microscope by people who don’t even have the decency to tell us who they are.Ask me any question you like but at least have the guts to put your name to it.
As for a liberal passing herself of as an independent then passing herself of as a SNP STALWARD well who could that be. It’s amazing the sins that get forgiven when you kiss the badge.And us poor independents get asked where our allegiances lie, certainly not three different faces in five years.
Power to the People.
- I am standing as a Independent candidate in Oban south and the Isles and my contact details have been on line for a while.I have have had no contact from anyone on this issue.If it is so important to people why the silence?
Power to the People.Where are they?

- SNP meeting on Monday may be testing time for mega-coalition proposal
Do we call him Fletcher or Mackenzie?
- James Robb, as the cordite clears
Come on folks lets rejoice if indeed Fletcher is Mike MacKenzie surely we all should be happy the SNP have found something for him to do and his close relationship with Dick Walsh will be of great benefit to the SNP councillors when they line up behind him in the new Administration.
You never know Dick might be a closet nationalist now that would need a fair bit of spin to keep the ground troops happy but I am sure the SNP will help him see the light. I think big Sally has plenty in her executive suite in Kilmory.
When will anything start to happen in Argyll apart from this farce.
- Walsh to lead all but Lib Dems, Conservatives and George Freeman
Very interesting newsroom so the SNP are now big buddies with Dick Walsh. What will poor Fletcher make of it?
Surely there will be another revolt within the party ranks at this alliance with the enemy or was it all the fault of the Tories and Liberals the last time.
The Schools debate when it raises its ugly head again will bring us back to square one so where does that leave the SNP.
If the numbers stack up like you say what,s the point of the opposition why not just pitch in together and use the experience of councillor Freeman and the rest without them having to join a certain group which seems to be a stumbling block. After the shambles of the last few months we can ill afford to sideline the input of experienced councillors who are not just there for the money.
The Argyll people who voted these councillors into office deserve to have them representing them properly especially after what we got from the SNP.
- Council latest: meaning well is not enough
I take it Ian by modernisers you mean Breslin and Hall as the other councillors have been around for a while.
So what will they bring to the table that we can look forward to.
- SNP departures from administration – was money a factor?
He is quoted in the paper as saying,
“people who I thought were pretty solid said to me if they didn,t get that extra money they,d be getting divorced”.
He qualified that with his own thoughts that if that’s what drives them to be involved with the council its the wrong driver.
You certainly don,t need to be a genius to work out who they were so let the battle commence.
