Comment posted Dunoon Ward count and RESULT by ConDemAll Boy.
Just looking at the votes, we see that the TORIES could only attract 94 votes and less that 4% of the total vote compared with 239 votes (7.27%) in 2007.
The LIB DEMS only managed to scrape 105 votes and less than 4.5% of the total vote compared with 2007 when they managed 257 (7.82%) of the total vote.
We see Jimmy McQueen going from 754 votes in 2007 to only 432 yesterday. Certainly passed his sell by date and should now think about standing down.

- Oban South and the Isles to ready for by-election as Councillor Hall stands down
Well done Cllr Hall. What about those other councillors such as Michael Breslin, Robert MacIntyre from Bute, Roddy McCuish and Mary Jean Devon who were elected on an SNP ticket and are no longer part of the SNP Group in the Council or have left the SNP party? Do any of them have the courage of Cllr Hall?
- More laughs from Argyll and Bute Council in airhead Macintyre Masterplan
When I read the Herald yesterday, I though that it must be APRIL FOOLS DAY. No such luck. This is a proposal that Duncan MacIntyre is proposing and clearly believes is a brilliant idea. Anyone who has thought up this idea must have lost their marbles.
What has Oban got to do with landslips on the A83? Apart from diverted traffic having to use the A82 and get within 20 odd miles of Oban, absolutely nothing. How Duncan MacIntyre or anyone else can suggest such a mad idea is beyond most sane folk.
If the A83 is closed, the diversion starts at Tarbet on Loch Lomond. To drive from Tarbet to Inveraray to rejoin the A83 only adds about 20 to 30 minutes on to the journey if you are heading to Campbeltown or any other location beyond Inveraray.
With the A83 closed, most folk could drive from Tarbet to Campbeltown using the detour in approximately 2 hours. To take the Duncan MacIntyre route, it would take someone about 1.5 hours just to get to Oban from Tarbet. How many hours is it then going to take us to get to Campbeltown from Oban on a ferry? I would guess about 3 hours if you can get on the ferry at Oban just before it leaves. You are therefore looking at a minimum 5 hour journey which can be done in just 2 hours even with the A83 closed and using the diversion.
If there is only one ferry put on this Duncan MacIntyre super highway, what happens when you get to Oban and the ferry has just left? Do you then wait form 6 or 7 hours for it to return? Why would anyone want to get a ferry from Oban to Campbeltown when you can drive there in half the time. Is MacIntyre suggesting putting enough extra ferries on the route so that we can have a half hours service between Oban and Campbeltown?
It really looks as if MacIntyre has totally lost the plot when he is suggesting putting more trains on the Glasgow Oban route when the A83 is close. Does this proposal have the support of Dick Walsh? If so, time they both retired. Is this a proposal that has the support of the Council? If so, time all the councillors retired.
If someone is travelling from Glasgow to Campbeltown or any other location on the A83 beyond Inveraray when the road is closed, what good will it be if they have put more flights on to Oban airport? Absolutely none.
It is daft suggestions such as this that makes Argyll & Bute Council a laughing stock.
- Salmond – who else? – bangs the last nail in his Indy fantasy
H20, don’t make us laugh. From experience over the past year, we all now know that we can trust most independents and all political parties more than we can trust the SNP, both at local and national level.
- Yes camaign needs to rein back First Minister as he cuts tether to reason in airhead statement on debt default
I don’t know why you are all wasting your time talking about shares of debts and assets because it is not going to happen.
Have you all been living on another planet over the past couple of years and are you unaware that those pushing the yes agenda are a small minority of the population.
I don’t know what you will all find to talk about after September when there is going to be a clear majority rejecting separation from the rest of the UK. VIVA LA UK.
- Councillor’s efforts to get leverage on Castle Toward affair revealed
Anne, we have not heard a word from the Argyll First trio on this subject. Do they need you as a mouth piece? Can’t they speak for themselves?
Presumably, as Douglas Philand was their group leader at the time, he supported all the decisions taken by Dick Walsh and the Council?
Apart from Breslin, we have not heard one word of support for Actual Reality from any other councillor. Unless any other councillor speaks out, it can only be assumed that they all support Dick Walsh on this issue and you don’t know what you are talking about.
