Comment posted Argyll and Bute Council: the empire strikes back with Argyll facing worst of all options by David Graham.
The casting vote in the event of a tie, may go to the individual who appears to pull all the strings in Argyll and Bute…..
Our local MSP!

- George Who of the Councillors in the list above are the 9 Senior Councillors?
- Will be interesting to see who are the 9 Senior Councillors?
- Oh well looks like cut of the cards…….tomorrow.
- Hamish There is amajor difference with North Ayrshire in that the 4 Tory Councillors in Argyll and Bute would be on opposite of the Council.
Imagine if the 13 SNP councillors were split 9-4 as four wanted to serve their local area in Bute and Cowal! There would be expulsions either the 9 or the 4.
Standing before the voters on a Party ticket requires discipline based on the manifesto of the local party.
- Have the Tories reined in their 4th Councillor and the other two Independents followed suit?
Could not have Tories on the Administration AND Opposition…same goes for Argyll First.

- The no-no campaign
There are 3 referendum costed campaigns on the go.
One is YES, one is No(Better Together) the other is the SNP Scottish Government.
Expenditure for the YES and BT are available and accountable to the people living in Scotland.
The SNP Scottish Government is not.
From changing Hamilton Races on the 17 May to the ‘Braveheart Hamilton Races’as part of the Homecoming events to the extensive costs of the White Paper described by Alex Salmond as the “SNP next manifesto” in the Scottish Parliament. Cost do not include the civil servants time and resources to produce the 670 page book.
History and time will reveal the hidden costs of the SNP Scottish Governments pro independence campaign using public money and reources!
- Tony Benn – always a credible man
Tony Benn…an honourable,gentle man. Priveleged to be in Tony’s company on a number of occassions.
My daughter still cherishs her picture with Tony at a May Day in Glasgow Green a number of years ago.
His speeches and diaries are a must read for any aspiring politician.
His explanation of power and how it corrupts etc is inspirational.
At 88, a good long life. He will be good and missed now he has gone.
- Best Indy political cartoon
How can you make comment(throw muck at) when you do not know people’s names…and still get away with misinforming others about the Better Together Cowal group or a child from Dunoon Grammar School…when the information had been given to the organisers
Regarding your sources perhaps you will in future check their credibility and motives to tell you untruths and non facts!
- Best Indy political cartoon
Jnr Tick… The Dunoon Observer, who are organising the Referendum Hustings on Tuesday 18 March, were contacted on 18 Feb with the two names of the Better Together people attending.
I made the phone call.
It does seem strange that you picked up this misinformation at a YES rally over a week after my phone call to the Dunoon Observer.
Are you willing to say who said that NO rep from Better Together was attending apart from a child from Dunoon Grammar School?
Or is it convenient for anonymous you to speculate. speculate.
- Cowdenbeath by-election shows parties’ ebb and flow
Given that the Labour Party brought in the devolution settlement including the Scottish Parliament it is evident that independence has never been the policy of the Labour Party at Scottish or National level.
Given that the Labour Party for Independence is in its infancy and has only been around post 2011 and has never attempted as Labour Party members to change party policy towards Independence the ‘droves’ have never… to my knowledge…. campaigned within the Labour Party to change policy to supporting independence.
Labour Party members can vote for Yes in the referendum as can SNP members vote No……Members and supporters of other political parties can also vote Yes or No as well.
It is called democracy.
