Comment posted Council issues prompt response on Martha Payne’s NeverSeconds clampdown by keith stanger.
The new administration sorted it out – it was the continuing inept senior management who, in the absence of a press office, messed up big style.
It was great to see the piece on BBC news tonight where they were highlighting how Councils hadn’t really got to grips with social media. Now isn’t that what Jo Smith was lecturing her press colleagues about? Oh, the irony!

- Breslin gets no confidence motion in Walsh and McQueen on Area Committee agenda
In the unlikely event that the motion succeeds what does this mean? That people don’t have confidence in Dick Walsh? The results of the 2012 local election confirmed that and then what happened? The SNP councillors threw in the towel & Dick Walsh was suddenly back in the driving seat where he remains. There’s a hint of symbolism in Councillor Breslin’s motion but that’s it. I don’t suppose Dick Walsh will be losing any sleep on February 2nd and as for Jimmy McQueen? He’ll just blindly follow his puppet master, Dick.

I think it’s generally accepted that Kintyre is the piece of land south of West Loch Tarbert & is presented as such on the OS map Sheet 62 where the “E” of Kintyre is to the south east of Clachan.
- Scotland owes its welter of new powers to the No Thanks pro-union vote
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.
