Comment posted Coalition for Progess to Govern Argyll & Bute by Ken MacColl.

Pleased to see that this has come to pass in spite of some very underhand and blatantly dishonest tactics from some senior members of the previous administration.

One of the first tasks for the new team is to see what can be done to improve communications between the Council and those who pay for it; that is, the people of Argyll & Bute for those still unsure. No news emerged from Kilmory about the developments in the Council chamber until long after decisions had been made and yet For Argyll appear to have been deliberately excluded from the meeting in spite of making every effort to conform to arcane rules badly enforced.

  • In an open democracy the affairs -unfortunate word- of political parties should quite properly be in the public domain. I suggest that the ill mannered and frankly nasty contributions from ife do neither him nor the party that he purports to support any favours.
  • I did not say that it surprised me.

    My thanks should, of course, have been to Robert Wakeham who contributes regularly and always has the courtesy to associate his name to his opinions.

    Thank you ,Hugh.

    I stopped contributing, or indeed reading, FA some time ago as I can’t see the point of repeatedly inane comments from a small group of anonymous armchair critics-the contribution from OBAN4ME illustrates that in spades. For his/her information the audience was self selecting from the public and the questioners were chosen at random. There was an opportunity for around 30 minutes following the meeting for further interaction between public and elected members. The contrast between the conduct of this event and the closed shop cabals of the likes of Gordon Brown or PM Cameron are revealing.

    Glad to see that Brendan O’Hara was able to squeeze in a mention of the Scottish Cabinet visit to Oban and Lorn on Monday. This was the seventh time that the Cabinet had met outside Edinburgh combining official business with various engagements across the area from school and housing projects, innovative energy developments and service providers.
    All this culminated in an open public meeting in the evening attended by more than 300 at the Atlantis Leisure Centre where the First Minister led her Cabinet in responding to an extensive open Q&A session followed by an informal opportunity for meeting with the cabinet members over tea and cake.

    How sad to see that what started some years ago as an informative and sometimes challenging website has descended to this juvenile level of political commentary.
    Carries a distinct whiff of the Daily Mail.
    Certainly has no connection to the late and great Spike Milligan.

    “For Argyll?” In your dreams!

  • Scotland’s Big Voice and the ‘One Vote’ fight for the Union
    I met a colleague in Oban this morning who advised me that the SNP had won three by elections on Thursday of this week. I knew that those contests were being held but had heard nothing in the morning news bulletins so I asked him where he had the information from.
    “Oh” he replied, ” I have not yet confirmed the news but I knew that as BBC Scotland had not announced the results or even put them on their website they could only be positive for the nationalists.”
    And so it proved, with substantial wins in Buckie, Glenrothes and Armadale.
