Comment posted Council statement on press staff suspensions and more leaked information by Hughie.
FOI requests? For goodness sake, get a grip, next you’ll be wanting to tap in to Council staff’s conversation on the phone and heaven forbid when they chat in their office, tearoom or toilet!
If, there was dialogue as it suggests, then the staff involved should have had their wrists slapped. That’s good management. Seems management in the Council are keen to switch the spotlight to the poor cooncil staff when they should be looking on their own doorstep first!

- Over £half a billion Swinney cash underspend in three years
Shouldn’t an underspend be hailed as responsible? The problem we’ve had for far too long is the irresponsible shifting of funds from one pot to the other merely to spend the money due to an underspend. If budgets and projects are under then they shouldn’t be merely shifted to another budget for the sake of it. Too much of that goes on already within Local Government already – ‘it’s year end so we better spend money for the sake of it’ when really it should be handed back. Are you saying it is better if it was an overspend?

“Based on the current poundage rate, this would generate a potential annual loss of over £7.5 million in NDR to Argyll & Bute Council.”

What has this story got to do with Argyll????
- Mud, guts [the brave kind] and community spirit at the first MACC Challenge
Brilliant! Feedback from this event has been amazing. Community at its best.
Great to see For Argyll covering positive news from Argyll! More of the same please. Like the wonderful weekend of events held in Campbeltown to celebrate the festive season. From the parade through the streets, the light switch on, the shops etc all open late, ice rink to the the fireworks on Saturday night to the wonderful Christmas Market on the Sunday at Springbank Distillery. Worth covering.
