Comment posted Council cannot say HOW they decide on media accreditation by Ken MacColl.

All the proceedings of the Scottish Parliament including the Committees, other than when Committees work in closed session, are televised and verbatim reports are “on the record.”
May we hope that this will occur at Kilmory?

  • It would be helpful if Michael Banks could direct me to an OFFICIAL media outlet reporting the deliberations of A&B Council and, for that matter, the Scottish Parliament, that is not selective and partial in its reporting.
  • Do you read the loca lnewspapers?
  • It would seeem that there is a news embargo within the council. For Argyll must not be the only agency deprived of news. The Council’s own website is bereft of any information about the new administration.
    In an age of easy communication this is most unsatisfactory
  • Dear oh dear, How much longer must this desperate game take before it is played out?

    My thanks should, of course, have been to Robert Wakeham who contributes regularly and always has the courtesy to associate his name to his opinions.
  • Argyll & Bute MP’s inspired transport for summer tour
    Thank you ,Hugh.

    I stopped contributing, or indeed reading, FA some time ago as I can’t see the point of repeatedly inane comments from a small group of anonymous armchair critics-the contribution from OBAN4ME illustrates that in spades. For his/her information the audience was self selecting from the public and the questioners were chosen at random. There was an opportunity for around 30 minutes following the meeting for further interaction between public and elected members. The contrast between the conduct of this event and the closed shop cabals of the likes of Gordon Brown or PM Cameron are revealing.

  • Argyll & Bute MP’s inspired transport for summer tour
    Glad to see that Brendan O’Hara was able to squeeze in a mention of the Scottish Cabinet visit to Oban and Lorn on Monday. This was the seventh time that the Cabinet had met outside Edinburgh combining official business with various engagements across the area from school and housing projects, innovative energy developments and service providers.
    All this culminated in an open public meeting in the evening attended by more than 300 at the Atlantis Leisure Centre where the First Minister led her Cabinet in responding to an extensive open Q&A session followed by an informal opportunity for meeting with the cabinet members over tea and cake.
  • Alex due another delicious spanking from Nicola
    How sad to see that what started some years ago as an informative and sometimes challenging website has descended to this juvenile level of political commentary.
    Carries a distinct whiff of the Daily Mail.
    Certainly has no connection to the late and great Spike Milligan.

    “For Argyll?” In your dreams!

  • Scotland’s Big Voice and the ‘One Vote’ fight for the Union
    I met a colleague in Oban this morning who advised me that the SNP had won three by elections on Thursday of this week. I knew that those contests were being held but had heard nothing in the morning news bulletins so I asked him where he had the information from.
    “Oh” he replied, ” I have not yet confirmed the news but I knew that as BBC Scotland had not announced the results or even put them on their website they could only be positive for the nationalists.”
    And so it proved, with substantial wins in Buckie, Glenrothes and Armadale.
