Yesterday, on Monday 20th August, Argyll and Bute Council dismissed its suspended Communications Manager for bringing the council into disrepute.
A disciplinary hearing at Kilmory last week saw Ms Jo Smith, supported by an NUJ representative, make a case for her retention which was not accepted.
There was no other possible outcome to this and For Argyll will have no further comment to make.
This is history. It is now and tomorrow that count.
We need a transparent, even handed and objective news operation at the council. Will we get it?
