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 :) :) :)

    I read the article and to be honest it left me cold. It is highly selective (the IFS suggested the four main political, Tories, Labour, Lib-Dems and UKIP parties, spending/austerity plans are short in detail and unable to be substantiated)it paints a picture of Scotland that I do not recognise, it ignores the personalised and sexist attacks made on SNP leaders and conveniently omits altogether the astonishing claim by T May that success in Scotland for the SNP would lead to a constitutional crisis.

    Scaremongering.

  • Sturgeon’s decoy of The Herald on indyref 2 torpedoed by herself
    John M. My quote certainly does not support what you said. S

    Why not stop bluffing and deflecting? You have totally failed to substantiate your claim that support for the SNP has fallen from the 45% gained at the Referendum. Unless you can substantiate that claim then I suggest you withdraw it otherwise you have no credibility.

    I’ve no idea what your are talking about with your ‘spikeybhoy’ deflection so am unable to comment.

  • Sturgeon’s decoy of The Herald on indyref 2 torpedoed by herself
    John M. The TNS link also contains the following quote “Support for the SNP continues to be very strong among younger voters (who are certain to vote and express a preference) – 71% of the 18-34s”.
  • Sturgeon’s decoy of The Herald on indyref 2 torpedoed by herself
    John M, I’ve never said a word about the BBC on here so please don’t try to put words in my mouth.

    You posted two links – this is a direct quote from your TNS link “More than half of adults in Scotland who are certain to vote in the May 7 general election (52%), said they would vote SNP, against 24% backing Labour. The 28-point lead is nearly double last month’s figure, when the parties scored 46% and 30% respectively. The Conservatives scored 13% (down 1 percentage point), the Liberal Democrats 6% (up 3) and the Greens 3% (down 1). Support for UKIP in Scotland is almost negligible”.

    Note 52%.

    Meanwhile Ashcroft states he sees no slackening in the surge of support for the SNP. Indeed he now puts Charles Kennedy and Douglas Alexander’s seats at risk from this continuing SNP surge.

    I fail to see anything in either of your links to supports your claim that ‘Yougov, TNS, Ashcroft are all showing a fall in the (45%) support for the SNP since the Referendum’.

  • Sturgeon’s decoy of The Herald on indyref 2 torpedoed by herself
    John M. “Yougov, TNS, Ashcroft all showing SNP support has dropped off for the SNP from the high of ’45′,”

    Really?

    You sure about that?

    How do square that claim with this comment?

    “Two polls conducted by YouGov during the last fortnight have both put the SNP on 49% and Labour on 25% – a 24 point gap ”

    Doubtless you have a source for your claim, it would be interesting to see it.

    Here’s mine. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/32440469

  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.
