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 :) :) :)

    Press releases from both Scottish Land and Estates and McGrigor on the same day.

    Oh joy Newsie!

    Any news yet on MSP McGrigor’s appeal against the planning refusal for a wind farm on his land??
  • Breslin’s last stand for Castle Toward
    Seriously?

    Apart from Newsie, Cllr ‘Magic’(“the last opportunity to pull a rabbit out of a hat”) Mike Breslin and recently sacked Mike (‘I’m still pretending that Nicola, as her first act as First Minister, never actually sacked me’)Russell. Most people on here can see that despite the never-ending-email-trail, the protestations, the on-going accusation and the politicising and personalising of the issues on For Argyll, the truth is that the Unholy Trinity have run a spectacularly inept and crass campaign that seemed (from a neutral viewpoint) designed to attack and alienate the very people that might just have been able to help them.

    1: The community group were never on here – just the ‘politicos’ ie, Newsie, ‘Magic’ Mike and sacked Mike.
    2: The whole council voted on ‘Magic’ Mike Breslin’s motion. According to my mate reading the Dunoon Observer (still going strong Newsie despite your ‘exclusive’ from 2 years ago) it was defeated by 19 votes to 14.

    Strange that FA never actually gave the voting figures…..

  • Rally marks end of attempted community buy out of Castle Toward
    Neilfie, and your evidence the District Valuer ‘based’ his valuation on one that’s four years old?

    Or is this just more unsubstantiated spin?

  • Welcome for Loch Lomond camping proposals
    It started off with you regurgitating Tory McGrigor’s press release now the it’s also Scottish Land & Estates that get to ‘treat’ us to their biased, narrow selfish view of the world.

    The Mountaineering Council of Scotland and the Ramblers Scotland have both come out against these nonsensical plans that seek to restrict access and the right to wild camp.

    http://www.ramblers.org.uk/scotland/what-we-do/news/2015/january/mcofs-and-ramblers-scotland-response-to-loch-lomond-camping-byelaws-consultation.aspx

    Here’s a suggestion – if there is a problem (and there is in some areas) with anti-social behaviour use the existing legislation! Don’t restrict the rights of many to cope with the few idiots.

    And do stop being a mouthpiece for Scottish Land & Estates – it is just lazy.

  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.
