Comment posted Argyll and Bute Council: the empire strikes back with Argyll facing worst of all options by keith stanger.
If only………………the Alliance of Independent Councillors realised that they weren’t a party & could abandon Trickie Dickie & get on with representing the voters who elected them. Is it too late for redemption or have they passed the point of no return? Would they have the guts as per George Freeman?

It’s entertainment if you like watching bickering politicans behaving like kids & trying to score petty points off one another. It’s that behaviour which we are going to get from all parties for the next few months and it’s what puts many people off becoming involved in politics or even voting. They can’t help themselves.

At the full Council meeting this morning the Provost agreed to take an additional item in the form of an urgent motion under standing orders. The motion was proposed by Michael Breslin and seconded by Vivien Dance.
Not surprisingly an amendment was proposed Dick Walsh, seconded by Ellen Morton. The Amendment was carried by 19 to 14, to “endorse and reaffirm the decisions taken by the Policy and Resources Committee of 18 December 2014 and to take no action with regard to the proposal contained in the urgent motion.” It would be interesting to see who voted which way.
