  • Hundreds of thousands of folks extend their houses. Hundreds of thousands of people split their houses too. Its what people do in a property owning democracy. Spliting houses and or extending houses also adds to the housing stock. Appears that the FA has a thing against Mike McKenzie. Typical smear blogging from the FA.

    • Willie, are you sure that ‘hundreds of thousands of folks’ are as devious as the Hon Mike Mackenzie MSP and his lady wife? (if the sequence of events as reported above is correct)
      Is this, perhaps, a reason to vote SNP – a licence to enrich yourself by screwing the ‘system’ (in this case administered by a local authority that could fairly be claimed to have been enfeebled in part by the local shenanigans of the Hon Mr Mackenzie’s own political party – which, being Nationalist, is of course beyond criticism).

      I know that there was smelly stuff way back in the days of Argyll County Council, but the Hon Mr Mackenzie MSP and his lady wife do seem to be smelly smelly smelly smelly smelly smelly smelly smelly smelly smelly.

      Down in that den of iniquity called Westminster any outrageosly grubby MP faces the sanction of being deselected by their constituency party, but up here in God’s country a list MSP might not have such a close relationship with their constituency – in which case it might be up to Minnie the Minx to give this particular pal the heave-ho, because this sort of crookery is infectious (think Central Belt Labour politics) – and what amounts to a one-party state creates ideal breeding conditions for wholesale corruption.

  • This story is just the tip of the iceberg as far as Mackenzie’s dodgy builder dealings go – there’s plenty more.

    As he has no qualifications, only built a few properties on a small island (and many people have a poor opinion of the standard) yet sells himself at Holyrood as a “builder” he certainly proves that all he has is gall.

  • Mike Mackenzie is rotten to the core, ask any small business owner in Oban, including those who support the SNP.

    In the 2010/11 Walton v Mackenzie court case heard at Oban sheriff court Mackenzie was to rely on evidence that he knew was fraudulent. He nearly destroyed an honest local family electrical business. In 2012 Police Scotland, the crown office and the Procurator fiscal investigated Mackenzie for perverting the course of justice, he got away with it by the skin of his teeth. Just one more day in court would of sealed his fate.
    Mackenzie’s history is appalling and the SNP executive know all about it, but choose to take know action. Threats of violence towards ferrymen, intimidation of Easdale island residents that have opposed his planning applications, assaulting an OAP outside the island pub……the list goes on and on.
    Mackenzie constantly lies to the Holyrood parliament.
    Example. Scottish parliament 25th November 2015, Clyde and Hebrides ferry service. ” My Grandfather worked for Cal-mac and my farther worked for Cal-Mac as a young man” Lies! He never knew who his Farther or Grandfather were.

Thousands of children, and I use the word in frustration, crapped all over through rotten dodgy fraudulent building. Eight thousand of them in fact decanted and disrupted and the clowns on this site mump their gums about Mike McKenzie outing some extensions on his home over twenty years ago.

  • Well, well. Look what popped up when I Googled “Mike MacKenzie Planning”.

    Holyrood debate on Planning Reform, Jan 2013.
    Speaker Mike Mackenzie.
    “I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak in the debate, not just because I have been wrestling with, reading about and thinking about our planning system since I lodged my first application, nearly 35 years ago, but because few subjects merit more attention … … …
    “Even after 35 years, I often struggle to understand the complexity of local planning policies and of letters that I receive from heads of planning.”

    Aha!! He’s never been a dodgy cowboy builder flouting the planning system! He just didn’t understand the letters he got from the planners!

    So that’s alright then! 🙂

  • It would seem Mr Mackenzie SNP MSP has a history of falling foul of the A&B Council Planning department. Some time ago, he erected a shed on the island to store furniture while renovating a nearby cottage, and apparently gained temporary planning permission to do this. On completion, it was required to demolish the shed. According to the contemporary minutes of the local Residents Association committee meeting, “a resident had complained that he had received an order from A&B Council to demolish his shed. On the assumption that someone on the island had reported the shed to the Council, the resident was asking EIRA to reveal the identity of the person(s) involved so that he could meet with them the next day, with EIRA Committee members present if necessary. Non-compliance with this request would result in ‘Collateral Damage’ elsewhere on the island.”

    Could the resident be the same Mr Mackenzie SNP MSP?

      • Pedantry Corner: Mr. MacKenzie is, at the moment as I type, a FORMER MSP: as are they all, including Minnie the Minx. We’ll see what happens after close of play tomorrow but, in respect of Mr. MacKenzie, I know in which direction my fingers are crossed.
        I could never call him “Honourable” because honourable he’s not – as is made clear in posts on this thread and also in the link that Murdoch Mackenzie usefully provided to an earlier FA topic.

          • Good grief! You trolls have to be on song all day and all night don’t you! The very minute after I’d posted my comment – there you are! It must be really hard work and my heart bleeds for you. I hope you get well paid for your efforts, because you’re not just trolling this website are you? You’ll be on other sites trolling under different identities. Obviously you’re not going to be doing it for nothing.
            Minimum wage at least, of course? And where’s the money coming from to pay you for your constant vigilance?
            Anyway, I’m off to pour myself a glass of Chardonnay now and leave you to it.
            Have a nice night 🙂

  • Mike Mackenzie came within a whisper of going to prison for perverting the course of justice. I still have all the court documents and so do many others. This guy is dirty to the core and all the small business owners of Oban who are still owed money by him know it. The SNP NEC should do the right thing and give him the boot.

    • Was that “Chinese whispers” that nearly sent him to prison? If you have the court documents that show proof of perverting the course of justice, why did the court did not jail him as normally happens?
      I’ve read a lot of bitter comments about this MSP over the years but nothing incriminating has ever been shown on here.

      • MM – I’m absolutely certain that you know the implied meaning of the phrase ‘sailing too close to the wind’, and you surely know the wider meaning of the term ‘cowboy’, so are you really in all honesty prepared to accept the government being associated with those notions – be they applied to a criminal or no?

    • I can just imagine Buckie being your tipple of choice, Keitho – the product of a bunch of sanctimonious hypocrites who pretend ‘it’s in a good cause’ but take great care to keep themselves at arms’ length from the people doing the real dirty work of ensuring plentiful supplies for this country’s headbangers and creators of mayhem.

  • Hey ho. You trolling guys just don’t read anything properly, do you.
    Not one of the posts on this thread is critical of the SNP as a party, nor of its policies. The posts are critical of the actions of an individual who, by an accident of fate, became a List MSP.
    Don’t you think that the SNP in Oban, Argyll, and the Highlands & Islands deserve a better representative for their cause than the grubby Mr. MacKenzie?
    (Pours glass of Chardonnay, sits back and waits for storm of nonsensical protest.)

  • Maybe Ex MSP this A.M. ? but thread still valid. Am I right in my recollection that there was a public “letter/notice” in the ferry hut several years ago explaining the delay in the £1/3 million upgrade of BT cables to Easdale Island to allow faster internet and subsequently broad band, any one recall? Will this help “Mike MacKenzie Scottish National Party
    I am much more optimistic than Rhoda Grant and have a better insight into the immense technical difficulty we have seen in laying cables—not least submarine cables—to many of our islands. Will the cabinet secretary explain some of the benefits of delivering high-speed broadband across the Highlands and Islands and say whether that will boost the economy?”
