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!

- Glasgow helicopter crash: now the questions – but why no black box?
If it is correct that the helicopter normally operated at an altitude of around 1000 feet then a catastrophic loss of power would mean it would only have just less than 8 seconds before it hit the ground. That is surely very little time for even an experienced pilot to take any sort of action.
- SNP Group unable even to oppose
Have I not been paying attention in class? When was this?
- Less a ‘debate’ more a screaming match for three
I didn’t watch either programme and all these comments just reinforce my reasoning for not doing so. I knew I wouldn’t learn anything useful. The politicians cannot behave like reasonable adults & debate in a measured and coherent manner. At every opportunity they descend to the level of a squabbling rabble of the type we see in Holyrood and Westminster every week. They simply aren’t professional and yet they are inclined to bleat on about the lack of interest that ordinary people have in politics. If they want to know the reasons for that they should look at each other and their behaviour but not until they’ve looked in the mirror first.
- Change in responsibility for presentation to council of information on Castle Toward sale
No it isn’t. Have a look at http://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/sites/default/files/argyll_and_bute_council_organisational_chart_2013.pdf & you’ll see that property services are part of Malcolm MacFadyen’s brief and he reports to Douglas Hendry as Executive Director. The legal aspects of property disposals would be dealt with by Charles Reppke’s staff & he also reports to Douglas Hendry. It’s difficult to see where Cleland Sneddon would fit into all this although under the circumstances it’s perhaps a smart move to keep the matter away from Douglas Hendry.
- White Paper sets date for independence as 24th March 2016
As indeed is Mr McCormicks. The problem is that a crystal ball is needed in the absence of facts. Come publication of the White Paper will we still need the crystal ball? I hope not but I’m afraid on past performance my trust in politicians of any persuasion to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth is at a pretty low ebb.
