Newsie, so’Political mischief-making’ is it??

How then would you describe three of your very own recent articles ?? Viz;

‘Council now restricts reasons why agenda item minutes are restricted’

‘Looks like a council reshuffle’

‘Senior officers failed to process Cowal Games grant extension’

Political mishief-making? – Pot,kettle, black.

Have a nice day :) :) :)

    Not according to the quote I’ve posted above.
  • Russell offers to meet Council administration to discuss Castle Toward
    The biggest complaint when Ardentinny was sold for District Valuer valuation was that the DV had UNDERVALUED the property.
  • Russell offers to meet Council administration to discuss Castle Toward
    Gordon Stevenson, it doesn’t look as though what you are claiming is in fact correct.

    “To secure its own and the centre’s future, Actual Reality has now paid £130,000 for the Ardentinny Centre – which was the open market value put on it in its existing condition and use by the District Valuer”.

    It rather looks from this like Actual reality paid the DV valuation in full and if correct this undermines your assertions.

    Unless of course you have a source to support what you are claiming?

    Otherwise, this is just another inconvenient truth that does not fit the SNPorthdoxy.

  • Audit Scotland now conducting third consecutive investigation of Argyll & Bute Council
    Malcolm, not a body swerve at all – I will not be railroaded into a judgement on the basis of one side of the argument. However, like Integrity “I would always encourage someone who feels a council has behaved inappropriately to take their complaint to the correct body”.

    Now,

    You’ve tried councillors – and can’t get one councillor interested in your case.

    The Ombudsman will not rescind planning permission. But can he comment on the rights and wrongs of the planning process?

    You don’t want to go the Police because they are too busy.

    It seems to me that your recourse is to the Ombudsman (for an alleged ‘faulty’ process – not the permission itself)or through the courts as a private individual, or (dare I say it) let it go.

    Your choice, it’s up to you.

  • Audit Scotland now conducting third consecutive investigation of Argyll & Bute Council
    Malcolm, I watched your you tube video.

    What I saw was your version of events.

    My problem is that, unlike some on here, I like to hear both sides of the story before making up my mind.

    I do have concerns that you can’t get a councillor interested, that the police are not interested and that you are not interested in going to the Ombudsman.

    So the question is – are you actually going to do something your perceived injustice apart from mumping about it on here on FA??

  1. Even by any loose standard what she has done is disgraceful, spiteful and petty. Actually these are not the words I would use, I would use stronger however I want this comment to be published.

    A vote of no confidence comes to mind. Perhaps the dunoon and cowal councillors could sort this out.

    • Not being a Helensburgh resident, never having met this councillor, and watching the unfolding story of the interaction of local politics with local property deals and planning abuses I really wonder how Councillor Dance commanded enough support to achieve re-election.

    • Go back to the local election candidate lists and have a look at the number of candidates versus number of seats available, voting choice has little to do with it.

    • Helensburgh voters are not thick, I blame the local paper for spouting Dances and Margaret MacInnes’s nonsence and deceiving all the good people of Helensburgh. Finally people can now see what they are really all about.this article should be spread to theHelensburgh people so they can get the truth. Looking forward to Cowal as always!

  2. Councillor Dance is a vey close friend and business associate of Mrs MacInnes who runs the very profitable Helensburgh dancing school. Rottenburgh but it seems to be changing at last as Dance and conspirators being exposed. Dance was supported in her stunt by the other members of the coven – Councillors Morton and Morton Junior and the Tories.
    A local worthy described The Coven of Morton, Morton Junior and Dance as – Councillor Me, Councillor MiniMe and Councillor MeMeMe.

  4. I would have thought that Councillor Dance had more important things to do than worry about highland dancers from Helensburgh and Lomond not dancing at the Cowal Games.
    She should be asking the Chief Executive of Argyll & Bute Council why residents in Helensburgh & Lomond only receive a fortnightly uplift of the general waste whereas residents of Lochgilphead, Oban, Dunoon and Campbeltown still have their general waste bins emptied weekly.
    Council taxpayers (Band D equivalent) in Argyll & Bute all pay the same rate of council tax and should therefore ALL receive the same level of service.
