Comment posted Argyll and Bute Council: the empire strikes back with Argyll facing worst of all options by Robert Wakeham.
I fear it’ll only be permanent if people in some corners of Argyll wake up to reality and stop voting tribally. It’s bad enough when this has happened with postal voting in ethnic areas of large cities.

- Ife – you remind me of that old analogy, from a previous age, of the needle on a gramophone getting stuck in the groove of the record and repeating the same bit over and over again ad infinitum….
- There’s really no alternative to pulling his arms & legs off – slowly – or burning him in oil, is there, Ife?
- I was thinking of at least two councillors who are very familiar figures in their community, great hand-shakers, have the apparent earnestness of Jack Straw, and have probably concluded that their repeat re-election in the face of serial and blatant infidelity to that community means that their electorate are a bunch of blindly loyal numbskulls.
- ‘discipline based on the manifesto of the local party’ – and what if there’s direct conflict between this manifesto and what’s clearly in the best interests of your local constituency – you tell them that’s their problem, they voted for a political party first and foremost?
- Ife – do you really vote just for a party? if so, I know a parrot that could probably be persuaded to say the right thing next time around. Not a human one, mind.
