Comment posted Council statement on press staff suspensions and more leaked information by Integrity? Not in the ConDemAll.
I agree with that. Not just due to the possibility of compromising or prejudicing the case but also because of the right and proper concept of ‘innocent till proven guilty.’ The release of any details prior to a full review being completed can only lead to speculation and mud possibly sticking where none is due.
The more important question just now is why the investigation into the original Spygate issue seems to be dragging its feet for so long. The external ‘examiner’ was appointed a long time ago now and I would be willing to wager that the total time he charges to the Council for his review will be less than two FTE working weeks.
I wonder if the elections might be considered as a ‘good time to bury bad news’

- As we don’t know the exact details of the alleged joke we can’t comment on the specifics of this case, or speculate on whether it is an excessive reaction or not.
However what I would say is that two A&B employees use e-mail to make a joke about a high ranking officer and they get suspended. An Executive Director uses e-mail to lie to a Councillor and he gets to meet the Princess Royal.
As is sang in ‘Get a Blooming’ Move On’ ‘This is the self-preservation society’

- When is Argyll and Bute going to publish its mini-count breakdown of the indy referendum vote here?
I can understand why some people would be interested in seeing a breakdown however I personally fail to see any great value in it. We don’t need to encourage further division, quite the opposite. It was a national vote where every vote carried equal weight, I think it’s better leaving it as a national result.
- Lifeline for wildlife – 5p per carrier bag in Scotland from today
I have no problem with this law. If anything I don’t think it is steep enough. I was amazed at the 80% statistic and find myself questioning it’s credibility as I wouldn’t expect 5p to be much of a deterrent. I would have preferred total removal of plastic bags and the adoption of something more in.line with French supermarkets.
- For Argyll challenge to candidates for Thursday’s Oban North & Lorn by-election
That’s right, never mind promoting the credentials of the candidate – as long as they have the same gender!
I don’t know Stephanie Irvine and am not for a second suggesting she is or isn’t a credible candidate. However I would wager if she is credible she would prefer for people to vote for her on the basis of what she can bring to the post rather than simply because of ‘women supporting women’
- General election television debates
Great more debates, just what we need, more mindless chest thumping my quips better than your quip, or fans of both camps claiming irrelevant victories.
I couldn’t care less about arguments over who should and shouldn’t be involved. I’d rather they were scrapped so money wasn’t wasted on a gruesome spectacle which serves no positive value and only paints UK politics in an ugly light.
- Argyl and Bute Councillors in trouble for non-payment of – Council Tax
I don’t disagree they should pay it Treble T. I just think a witch hunt a little unedifying. They should be treated the same way any of us would for non payment.
