Right on Dr Douglas, play the man not the ball if you don’t have a sound retort based on facts.
We who are attacked, should turn the other cheek and the lack of response will defuse the attention seeker.

Probably will resurrect with new name and if needs must, new style.

  • Councillor Philand,

    I note when points sucessfully won against islay for now, the retort is always agressive attack.

    Well said, you won.

  • Crazy,

    From what I SAW AND HEARD today from the old guard at Kilmory ‘Men In Black’ would be more appropriate.

    Lynda, Para 3, line 2 – a wee adjustment to accounts please. Ta.
  • Area Committee ‘Evening Surgery’ for Oban and Lorn
    As Oban North and Lorn’s newest Councillor I was not involved in past decisions BUT BE ASSURED that there is now a definite will amongst all of the Area Committee’s Councillors to engage meaningfully with our electorate, with a view to delivering better outcomes.
  • Oban North and Lorn by-election count under way: indications, analyses, result
    Lynda, No doubt strictly speaking there may be some merit in your analysis. BUT as a ‘Newsie’ didn’t your journalistic tendencies not think to factor in the weather conditions here yesterday, compounded by the early darkness of the evening.

    Anyway, for my part let bygones be bygones.

    I have been entrusted by my Electorate in an AV system to represent them and this I will endeavour to do, to the best of my abilities and energy. More I will represent all of our constituents equally for that is who I am.

    I only ask that you, Lynda, suspend judgement for a while, communicate with me and give me a fair crack of the whip until I, at least, learn the rules.

    May I thank the tremendous team representing SNP, other parties and none who worked tirelessly to afford me this opportunity and to YOU, the Voters who placed faith in me.

    We must learn to communicate better and this will be my first goal. Contact information will come early week.

  • For Argyll challenge to Oban North and Lorn by election candidates

    Interesting, absolutely no e-mails from your organisation on May 8th but more curious none this morning either, as stated.


  • For Argyll challenge to Oban North and Lorn by election candidates

    It seems you insist on perpetuating the falsehood that I IGNORED and so failed to respond to an e-mail request from ForArgyll to contribute as a candidate to an article for the election in Ward 4.

    NO SUCH E-MAIL was received .

    In the interest of impartiality could you reply indicating to which e-mail address you forwarded the request along with a copy of said correspondence.
