Tullsteris result screen shot 21 march 2014

A farewell present for Argyll and Bute Chief Executive, Sally Loudon

Several years ago, a co-director of For Argyll, during a coffee break, idly tapped ‘Tullsteris’ into a Google Search.

The was one single eye-opening result – the screen shot above.

Mrs Loudon – and probably some collaborators – will know just what this means.

For Argyll had no means of exploring further the specific private connection in Mrs Loudon’s Linked-In page, although it was a matter where police investigation could justifiably have been sought.

We decided to play the matter with a light touch and offer her public awareness of what we have known for around four or five years now – at such time as she might move on from Argyll and Bute Council.

In the meantime we checked occasionally to see if the same search produced the same single result. It always did. The screen shot above was taken on 21 March 2014, to ensure that we had a record of the search and the very singular return.

At one point more recently we asked two independent individuals  – an able councillor and a senior public figure – to do the same as we had done – tap ‘Tullsteris’ into Google and see what they got.

They got the same and sole result we had repeatedly got ourselves.

That search response never changed – until the period after Mrs Loudon’s departure for the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities [COSLA] was announced.

At that point, when we tested the search, again, ‘Tullsteris’ produced no results at all. The connection to Mrs Loudon’s Linked-In page had gone – in what looks like clearing the decks of evidence of the murk of matters related to her current post, as she moves on to the rutted ground of COSLA.

    “..At one point more recently we asked two independent individuals – an able councillor and a senior public figure ”

    Is the “able” councillor the one that gives you all your to notch leaks that turn out to be false? A senior public figure?

    • And if you looked properly at your search results you would see that a specific FA story was returned on your search because the following words – which are visible in the search return – were in the text of the article:
      ‘unsubstantiated gossip, malicious innuendo and personal abuse all …’

  • Come on, Newsie. It’s three days since you posted this and still no explanation as to what it is all about or is it just your way of having a last “go” at Sally Loudon before she leaves A & B Council.

  • Newsie will remain quiet on her cryptic blog, and is challenging us to do our own detective work.

    The word ‘Tullsteris’ doesn’t exist, that is clear from numerous web searches coming up with absolutely nothing.

    So, perhaps it’s an anagram?

    There are some stand out words such as Luss, litter, Trust, title etc.

    How about some home detectives getting to work on this??

  • Reading between the lines and knowing Louden from her previous incarnation I’m guessing that she may have stepped over a legal line somewhere.

  • OK good work detectives, so Ulster came up twice.
    Sally Loudon studied at Ulster.
    What did she do there I wonder, and what could be on that list?

    C’mon Newise, let us know if we are on the right trail here huh?

  • Simon.

    If Loudon/Louden, Jo Smith and Sneddon have been involved in some dirty,underhand criminal behaviour then it was only a matter of time before a journalist got wind of it. In the corridors of A&BC it’s difficult to keep secrets forever.
