Comment posted Lochgilphead primary pupil’s internet exposure of poor school meals goes viral by newsroom.
You have to remember that this is the same Malcolm McFadyen who pronounced himself satisfied that it is safe for tiny primary children to walk to school from Arrochar to Tarbet, under the highly dangerous pinch point of the rail bridge over the busy, truck ridden A83.
This man exists in an alternative universe called Kilmory. We can only hope that the new administration imposes a ‘common sense test’ on all decisions.
The further political decisions move away from common sense the more they discredit politics and alienate voters from the democratic process.

- I personally removed a post from Michael Banks because it was personally abusive of a nine year old child in a way that was indefensible in terms of civility and its potential impact on an emerging psyche.
- Heard this.
Very unimpressive performance from council – playing the MacFadyen line.
The meals photographed were Martha’s choice.
She didn’t know healthy food when she saw it.
The service provides millions of meals (but not to Martha – whose choices are obviously limited).
These were only four photographs.
The implication was, in every syllable, that, out of the frame of the photographs was a luscious plenty of platters of fruit, dishes of a variety of vegetables – all of which Martha had wilfully chosen not to mention.
This was not only an implausible defence, it demonstrated the culture at Kilmory that so profoundly has to change.
We are supposed to believe that there is never anything wrong in anything the council does?

What you say about the new ADP Chair is of concern – but it has to be hoped that this was down to newness to ADP, nervousness, inexperience of the mess of ADP – and probably an advance briefing from Mr Sneddon whose strategic purpose she may not twigged and [wrongly but understandably] simply have accepted.

In the spirit of what you say, we have removed the joke which signed off the piece above.
There is a distinction between vigorous political campaigning and a level of proselytising that enters the territory of the formation of a cult.
This article is a genuine warning that that line has been crossed; and that sensible people need to consider whether they stay on the dangerous side of that line, join it or retreat from it – while retaining their wish to vote however they like.
