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 :) :) :)

  • Fundamental lack of ambition to earn in independence prospectus
    Richard “Meddling in International politics is much more important,”.

    In 1981 Glasgow City Council awarded Nelson Mandela the freedom of the City of Glasgow – nine years before he was released from prison. The council also renamed St George’s Place as Nelson Mandela Place in 1986 which was highly significant as this then became the address of the South African Consulate, which was based there.

    Sometimes making the gesture IS important.

  • Andrew Argyle: Yes campaign impaled on currency
    Since everybody is on about Plan Bs – what’s RUK’s Plan B for Trident should Scotland vote ‘Yes’?
  • Mull’s Ulva Ferry community to have two affordable homes to rent and a plot to buy
    Ulva Ferry are to be applauded for being so pro-active in rural regeneration. Grass roots involvement is the only way forward.
  • Managed protest at Pacific Quay shames pro-indy campaign
    I don’t think people are moaning Richard – but let’s be honest here somebody has blatantly lied about the ‘smoke’.

    Do you not think we should find who lied? And why?

    After all it was it not the MOD/Telegraph and For Argyll that thought it was a bit of a big deal in the first place?

    So I say again – who lied? And why?

  • No nationalist politicisation of the Games?
    Richard “What is the big deal about what smoke the Royal Airforce Aerobatic team use?”

    Well, if its no big deal why not agree with ceremony’s producers and use the colours of the host country (Scotland) Blue and White?

    After all and despite the nonsense claimed above there is plenty of photographic evidence that the Red Arrows have trailed many colours – including a staggeringly successful St Georges Cross!

    Somebody has lied here. And despite neurotic Newsie’s nasty interpretation it ain’t those who will vote for independence,.

  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.
