Ahhh Simon, Simon, Simon… How was Tiree? Were …

Comment posted ARSN statement on school meals issue by Crazy She-Bat.

Ahhh Simon, Simon, Simon…

How was Tiree? Were you working on the Array? ;)

Knew you wouldn’t be able to let this article pass without a swipe comment. Deflecting the issue, you are even more predictable than me.

However, a recap. There are 2 issues here:

The quality/quantity of school dinners at LJC. Hmmmm a big school possibly struggling to cope with the amount of pupils (430-ish) all to be fed in an hour. Yes we are most interested to find this out, especially after the Council refused to acknowledge there may be issues with this when it was discussed during the school closures.

The second issue being the absolutely appalling and immature reaction of staff in their response and blaming a wee girl. NOT ON!

Malcolm McFadyen in particular needing a few courses in children’s rights and tact to say the least.

We want confident learners? Aye just as long as they don’t complain, then they’ll set big Malky on you!

And yes we are friends with the SNP… and Argyll First and a bunch of Independents too. Do you honestly think that I would miss the opportunity of complaining if they start failing in the same way the last administration did?

Have a nice afternoon :)

  • National newspaper lambasts SNP mess in Argyll
    And so the spotlight of the National media shines again on Argyll…

    and as usual, not for a good reason.

    Lets just say it like it is – Local Government is not and has not been working here for some time. The upper echelons of the council needs completely gutted, Councillors and Officers alike and in their place, something that actually works for the people of Argyll in the best interests of the populous and not for their own selfish benefit.

  • Am dram wardrobe for Scottish team’s Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony costumes
    Its taken me a couple of days to feel brave enough to venture near the internet or the tv and come forward. I am a victim of ocular assault.

    After washing my eyeballs with bleach (from Lidl) I am dismayed to see that my first impressions of the Commonwealth Costumes are correct. Who knew there was a tartan named “Puke”?

    I would love to know what that wee woman was smoking when she designed that. It certainly wasn’t kippers.

    It truly is awful. Supporting Scotland in any sport is embarrassing enough, but this takes the Tunnock’s teacake.

    Is it not too late to change it to tracksuits and baseball caps? The unofficial uniform of Greater Glasgow anyway? And it would be the first time a tracksuit would have been worn in the city by someone actually taking part in sport.

    I think I shall spent the 23rd of July hiding up in the hills with a paper bag over my head pretending to be a wild haggis.

  • Audit Scotland’s latest report on Argyll and Bute Council ‘disappointing and worrying for local people’
    Our council is rotten. There’s a surprise. Its not like we don’t already know this.

    The only way this is going to change is the complete replacement of the senior officers at the council and councillors in place who are not in it for themselves.

    However, the chances of this are remote at best and will no doubt only happen when things come to a cataclysmic end in Argyll & Bute.

  • Next set of overnight closures coming up for A82 at Pulpit Rock
    The A82 is also closed at the Stoneymollan Roundabout to Dumbarton stretch over the next few nights.
  • Crowds, cabers, clans, crafts and choir for Luss Highland Games
    Hopefully there will be some good weather and not too many midgies for the games.

    If so, I shall be selling my car space to the highest bidder…

  1. ARNS and the local SNP are of course bosom buddies and it is likely that the carefully worded statement from ARSN was rehearsed with just as carefully with Mary-Jean prior to it being made public.

    That said I too look forward to the conclusion of Mary-Jean’s enquiry because the conclusion she comes to will tell us all a great deal about what we can expect from this new administration. If Mary Jean’s decision is not published on For Argyll I’ll conclude her enquiry did not turn out the way FA and ARSN wanted it to.

    Anyone with half a brain investigating this ‘issue’ will conclude – either you don’t give the kids a choice but if you do – then don’t be surprised when some of them make poor choices – they are only kids after all.

    • I don’t know how old you are, Simon – though I have my suspicions – but in my time there was no meal choice, it was generally ‘like it or lump it’ and we generally liked it (I think it was all part of the learning process). Having said that, there was some resentment – one of my friends was in the habit of using the school gravy to slick his hair, and personally I never did get used to ‘Yorkshire Pudding’ (with the aforementioned gravy) reappearing, adorned with custard and jam, as ‘Victoria Sponge’. Happy days.

    • What is wrong with giving them healthy options to choose between? Why does the choice have to be healthy or unhealthy?

    • Tamarto,

      You appear to be applying a whole brain to this. Remember Simon only wants people with half a brain to consider it, which may explain his support of the previous administration.

      For the record the press release was written before we contacted Mary Jean Devon with the obvious exception of the last two paragraphs which couldn’t be written until we had got Cllr Devon’s response. If she had responded that she wasn’t going to bother looking into it we would have criticised her for that stance.

      Simon likes to carry on claiming we are an SNP sub group – if it keeps him in material then so be it but the truth of the matter (as has been stated on here many times before) is that we are not a political group, not affiliated to a political group and have contrasting political beliefs within our membership.

      Somehow or other we all get on and reach democratic conclusion on what we should do.

    • Looking at her blog now,it seems Martha is eating heartily. That’s great news and is exactly what should have happened right at the start. A round of applause for the people who sorted it out, whoever they are.
