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…..

- 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.

When inviduals from a political party or no political party put their name forward to the voters, they do so weighing up their personal circumstances
The condition of putting yourself forward is that you live in Argyll and Bute.
John, your wiews on the candidates who live out with the ward boundaries were not expressed on this forum when the recently elected SNP Councillor stood as a candidate in both the Oban South and Oban North 4 member wards.
Take it the new Councillor did not live in both Wards?
A bit blinkered and unkind on the non SNP candidates who have put themselves forward for election.
Perhaps you may be wishing you had stood down for your own personsl reasons….and kept your biased views to yourself!
