Comment posted The shape of the new council by Simon.
Actually, I am all in favour in paying councillors a decent allowance and extra for additional resposibilities.
What I was doing of course was comparing and contrasting newsie’s treatment of councillors’ allowances in the previous adminstration with this new one.
I recognise that there is a financial cost to democracy – regardless of who is in power. And unlike newsie (and some of the more vociferous on here) I don’t choose to rail against councillor’s allowances if the elected administration is not my first choice.
Have a nice day.

- Well Robert, we’ll see what we’ll see.
Remember you have those two serial flippers Mary-Jean and Robb on board. And of course the whole snp group who were in the admistration with Tricky and Co.(before mike russell told them to get out…)
From the look of things all those who jumped into the SNP-led rag-bag alliance have been rewarded with special repsonsibility posts. I’ll say one thing for them – they’ve got their noses in the trough early this time…
Have a nice evening.
- Thanks Cllr Freeman – I appreciate that. One of the ‘like’ ticks is from me.
So, I guess the fact that the new admisitration has exactly the same number and total amount (of allowances)as the previous admistration really just exposes, yet again, Newsie’s biased blog.
If she keeps inventing rubbish stories like this (you must remember the never-ending ‘rag-bag alliance’, ’30 pieces of silver’ and ‘noses in the trough’ crap) she’ll get her press accreditation in no time….
Have a nice night and sleep safe in knowledge that you have a new Council.
ps You’ll be pleased to learn that the Samaritans have been stood down.
- Good luck to the new council.
Now, can someone – anyone – tell me how many people under this regime are getting additional repsonsibility payments compared to the previous administration?

Richard “Meddling in International politics is much more important,”.
In 1981 Glasgow City Council awarded Nelson Mandela the freedom of the City of Glasgow – nine years before he was released from prison. The council also renamed St George’s Place as Nelson Mandela Place in 1986 which was highly significant as this then became the address of the South African Consulate, which was based there.
Sometimes making the gesture IS important.

I don’t think people are moaning Richard – but let’s be honest here somebody has blatantly lied about the ‘smoke’.
Do you not think we should find who lied? And why?
After all it was it not the MOD/Telegraph and For Argyll that thought it was a bit of a big deal in the first place?
So I say again – who lied? And why?
- No nationalist politicisation of the Games?
Richard “What is the big deal about what smoke the Royal Airforce Aerobatic team use?”
Well, if its no big deal why not agree with ceremony’s producers and use the colours of the host country (Scotland) Blue and White?
After all and despite the nonsense claimed above there is plenty of photographic evidence that the Red Arrows have trailed many colours – including a staggeringly successful St Georges Cross!
Somebody has lied here. And despite neurotic Newsie’s nasty interpretation it ain’t those who will vote for independence,.
