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?

- James Robb, as the cordite clears
Is that because I don’t agree with you or is it you just do have a argument against what I’ve said?
What action do you suggest I take part in? I’m a Argyll voter and my action will be not to ever listen to any SNP all mouth and absolutely no action at all.
What’s going to happen when life gets tough and Scotland is independent will you just run away and give it back to the English? If you can’t run a small shop don’t open a big one.
- James Robb, as the cordite clears
With now absolute and total failure of the SNP administration having had three punts at it without success in any way shape or form. If your out enjoying the sun ask anyone in Argyll what they think of the SNP. I think you will find laughing stock sums it up for most now after the ferries and land slides not to mention running out of so called leaders.
They have ran faster than Husain Bolt to get out of the administration and back to what they think is safety as opposition, they will never be seen as opposition again in Argyll and Bute just a group of mouth pieces that failed when they had the chance and ran for cover. Or what do you think happened Fletcher?
- SNP departures from administration – was money a factor?
Why money not be the reason here when it’s really the only driver of what has put is in this mess, it’s all about the cash
Not heard a word about the souls in Sruan Lodge have we? Just pawns in the power and money game.
- SNP endgame: they ALL walked
Don’t tell me were going to give them another chance to appoint a leader, this SNP group are nothing more than a collection of useless people who manage to stay off the unemployment figures of Argyll by representing us as councillors.
Has my stolen vote been used to get to this position? This is not what I voted for at all. The new leader will third rate and third hand. Don’t start by telling us he’s anything but that. Looking at the list of SNP councillors you quickly see that we have not one even near a leader quality and that’s even based on the previous very low bar set by Robb and Previous Roddy.
Will someone please start thinking about the people of Argyll whom trusted you to do the right thing for us. Please do the right thing and bring back Mr Walsh ASAP we need stability, but most of all experience at this point in your wasted time in office. Please listen no more rubbish, give it up were not interested in how much extra cash you can be bought for to say anything your told to say or do, all should resign and stand again before returning to the dole where most of you belong.
- SNP Constituency Association Convener’s email tells a tale
Why do people put up with listening to these councillors and allowing them to stay in jobs that they said they can do on behalf of the voter? Get rid of all these people that will jump in with anyone to get some extra cash. It actually looks like most of them couldn’t stand on their own 2 feet for more than twenty minutes.
Get rid of them
