Comment posted School Meals saga: Council distorts facts and blocks Martha’s blog by Robert Wakeham.
‘Argyll and Bute Council’ – yes, but which one, the old contemptibles or the new order? – I wonder if the latter are aware of the ‘one party state’ trick of blocking Martha’s blog, or was this a ‘delegated decision’?. Wait till the Daily Mail etc get to hear of that.

- But ‘Government and European imposed procurement restrictions’ – just what are you referring to, JayC?
- Maybe too much choice? – and the wasteage must surely bump up the cost.
- In some cultures the only form of response to criticism and protest is to attack. Reminds me slightly of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, but then he thinks the country and its people are there for his benefit, rather than the other way around.
- Something else for the New Order to look into, if promises were made but never honoured.
- Looking at the ‘damage limitation measures’ taken by the council I just wonder if they’ve seeped out of a bastion of the old order within the senior management? Any attempt to impose the rule of omerta looks like it could backfire very badly indeed, and the sooner whoever’s responsible realises that southern Italian practices are no longer acceptable – or resigns to spend more time with their family – the better. Otherwise they might just be digging their own grave.

Good news – but it’s unthinkable that the council won’t recover its costs (in full, including existing and future legal costs) from the ‘developers’.

More than an ‘interesting story’, richard, sounds to me like a cry from the heart – and fits in with my impression of Glasgow, in terms of the City Council – all fur coat and no knickers would be putting it ever so politely.
If you don’t believe me, next time you’re in town have a good look at the state of disrepair of the pavements, even in busy areas of the city centre (for example, Hope Street between Central Station and Sauchiehall Street, maladministered by Glasgow City highways Department.
Take a seat at one of the pavement cafes on the north side of Royal Exchange Square, and have a good look at the state of gross disrepair of the carved stonework on the cornices of the old Royal Exchange (now the Museum of Modern Art, maladministered by Glasgow Council Museums Department)
Walk from Buchanan Bus Station along Cathedral Street to the Royal Infirmary, and find your way repeatedly blocked by massive advertising panels like giant tombstones, set at right angles to the street bang in the middle of the pavement, where they cause the maximum obstruction (maladministered presumably by Glasgow City Highways Department, probably to someone’s enrichment)
I propose that these things are blown up, as a service to the common people. But the Glasgow city councillors would’t know about the common people, would they (outside election time)?
