Vivien Dance smiling benignly at the Princess Royal as both stood on the Victoria Hall steps, as seen on the front page of the Helensburgh Advertiser, when Mrs Dance had been explicitly banned from the property because of the election ‘purdah’ – how does that shape up with the rules?

  • Boyne LIVE for Helensburgh
    Yet another woeful decision from Argyll and Bute Council. I trust the Council will be fully responsible for any costs arising and that, as they are now responsible for enforcing parking regulations, they will be out in force to do so.

    Yet another blow to local commerce after the years of mismanagement of the CHORD project and other works. It is hard to imagine any town centre shops and businesses staying open that day.

  • WIll Council support proposal for Helensburgh Scottish Submarine Museum?
    Turn a church hall into a submarine museum? It’s bonkers, and like Trident will never fire. Why on earth would 30,000 people a year — 80 a day — want to visit it?

    As for St Columba Church, the only sure thing is that its roof will, as it has over so many years, require a fortune to be spent maintaining it. Mrs Dance would have found the same.

    These people seem full of ideas, but there is not much evidence they have the readies. Mr Keating’s minions talk a fantastic game, but so far have only delivered continuation of a tiny tourist information centre, an uninspiring local TV news video service, and plenty of publicity for Mr Keating.

    The digital academy would go course be in competition with the proposed Helensburgh Heroes one, if both came into existence. I suspect neither will.

  1. Don;t know. Probably no more than exhausted campaigners throwing everything at it in the last day, with helpers who stick things up all over the place.

  2. Is it fair to publish something that is only heresay about two candidates, whoever they are? If you don’t have a clue what has happened why bother saying anything – unless, of course, you have a personal bias.

  3. See what happened there Lowry??

    Newsie comes on with a non-story – non attributed, no quotes and no evidence. You ask a more than reasonable question and the next two posters – Crazy and Stepehen ignore your poiint and comment on the Newsie’s non-story.

    Gawd help us all if these half-wit zealots get in…

    • Unionist posters?
      What are those?
      And does your correspondent, echoes of good old kintyre1, have any substantive evidence to support his implied charge?

    • It happens in the Dunoon and Cowal area also.

      We know who does it but they come out with excuses like “do you have substantive evidence to support this implied charge” or “it wisnae me, a big boy done it and ran away”

      But guess what? Their posters stay up!!!!

    • No, Simon
      That’s what Lowry meant.
      Pay attention, please.

      On second thoughts, the “Burn them!” should be deleted for Health and Safety reasons

  4. Pending the announcement of what constitutes an illegal election poster, a light-hearted post was responded to with a light hearted comment.

    In future such comments will be marked JOKE, to help those with a irony deficiency.

    Serious comments will be marked SERIOUS, to help those with a reality deficiency.

  6. Stpehen – but if you mark them JOKE – then they are supposed to be funny!!!

    The ‘light-hearted post’ and ‘light hearted comment’ were about as funny as week in jail.

    Have a good day :)

  7. Yes, Simon appears to have fallen into my troll-pit. Can I refer him to the sage advice of that great actor, Whil Wheaton?

    FWIW, outside my polling station in Helensburgh today posters for Dance, Mulvaney and Robb, but not anyone else. Also bonus sighting of Mulvaney wandering down the street, looking a little lost.
