Told you it would be fine (smug mode switch on)
New coalition 20
The rest 16

My guess is that the SNP would not be willing to work with the current crop of local Lib Dems and I can understand that entirely.
If they are confident they have the necessary numbers for the new coalition to become the new administration then I see no reason to do a deal with councillors who they have little respect for or trust in.
- Could it just be that, unlike you, Donald realises that whether or not Scotland gets independence has practically nothing to do with local politics.
Just maybe Donald Kelly is aligning himself to the people he believes have the best interest of A&B at heart. What a radical idea that is!
Just for the record what is the Concervative & Unionist party line on working with the SNP?
I see they don’t mind working together with the SNP in D&G or East Ayrshire whereas in other Councils they will work with Labour, others the Lib dems, others independents etc etc.
Does the C&U set their party line on a council by council basis or are these hard and fast rules about never being allowed to stand again Scotladn wide?
- You won’t. I realise that leaves me wide open to ridicule if you do but I am loudly confident.
More interesting are the rumours about who else in Dick Walsh’s fun factory tried to persuade McCuish to let them flee the sinking ship.
- I have it on good authority (that is just for you Simon) that this is all total nonsense.
Tomorrow will see the SNP led coalition as our new Administration.

- When is Argyll and Bute going to publish its mini-count breakdown of the indy referendum vote here?
I can understand why some people would be interested in seeing a breakdown however I personally fail to see any great value in it. We don’t need to encourage further division, quite the opposite. It was a national vote where every vote carried equal weight, I think it’s better leaving it as a national result.
- Lifeline for wildlife – 5p per carrier bag in Scotland from today
I have no problem with this law. If anything I don’t think it is steep enough. I was amazed at the 80% statistic and find myself questioning it’s credibility as I wouldn’t expect 5p to be much of a deterrent. I would have preferred total removal of plastic bags and the adoption of something more in.line with French supermarkets.
- For Argyll challenge to candidates for Thursday’s Oban North & Lorn by-election
That’s right, never mind promoting the credentials of the candidate – as long as they have the same gender!
I don’t know Stephanie Irvine and am not for a second suggesting she is or isn’t a credible candidate. However I would wager if she is credible she would prefer for people to vote for her on the basis of what she can bring to the post rather than simply because of ‘women supporting women’
- General election television debates
Great more debates, just what we need, more mindless chest thumping my quips better than your quip, or fans of both camps claiming irrelevant victories.
I couldn’t care less about arguments over who should and shouldn’t be involved. I’d rather they were scrapped so money wasn’t wasted on a gruesome spectacle which serves no positive value and only paints UK politics in an ugly light.
- Argyl and Bute Councillors in trouble for non-payment of – Council Tax
I don’t disagree they should pay it Treble T. I just think a witch hunt a little unedifying. They should be treated the same way any of us would for non payment.
