Argyll's online broadsheet.

Sorry , Paula, but you are simply wrong …

Comment posted Council Elections: The count by Ken MacColl.

Sorry , Paula, but you are simply wrong on this. Many comments that are posted are critical and contrary and are published. How else would we hear from such tolerant and generously spirited people as Simon, Lowry, JayC and Clootie Dumpling?

  • For the record I know who Lowry is.

    I just think it is sad that he has not got the guts to put his name to his postings and his nasty insinuations.

  • Well said, Neil.

    Honesty asnd Integrity are important

  • But of course the critics remain anonymous.
    One of the depressing aspects of what would otherwise be a useful and informative website is the way that a few cowardly people snipe away with questionable contributions while lacking the guts to identify themselves.
    I accept that some contributors have reasons for withholding their identity but what excuse do Lowry and Spock have other than that what they say is damaging and without any evidence at all other than hint, hearsay and inuendo?
    Does the high moral tone within their comments suggest that they perhaps lead immaculate and blameless lives? Were they to sign their contributions we could all be the judges although I would hope that those of us who sign our names would be more charitable than they are.
  • Iain is a man of “independent mind” certainly but he is not a member of the SNP.From your earlier postings you are likely to disapprove of him.
  • This remark merely reveals how little you know about SNP selection procedure.

    My thanks should, of course, have been to Robert Wakeham who contributes regularly and always has the courtesy to associate his name to his opinions.
  • Argyll & Bute MP’s inspired transport for summer tour
    Thank you ,Hugh.

    I stopped contributing, or indeed reading, FA some time ago as I can’t see the point of repeatedly inane comments from a small group of anonymous armchair critics-the contribution from OBAN4ME illustrates that in spades. For his/her information the audience was self selecting from the public and the questioners were chosen at random. There was an opportunity for around 30 minutes following the meeting for further interaction between public and elected members. The contrast between the conduct of this event and the closed shop cabals of the likes of Gordon Brown or PM Cameron are revealing.

  • Argyll & Bute MP’s inspired transport for summer tour
    Glad to see that Brendan O’Hara was able to squeeze in a mention of the Scottish Cabinet visit to Oban and Lorn on Monday. This was the seventh time that the Cabinet had met outside Edinburgh combining official business with various engagements across the area from school and housing projects, innovative energy developments and service providers.
    All this culminated in an open public meeting in the evening attended by more than 300 at the Atlantis Leisure Centre where the First Minister led her Cabinet in responding to an extensive open Q&A session followed by an informal opportunity for meeting with the cabinet members over tea and cake.
  • Alex due another delicious spanking from Nicola
    How sad to see that what started some years ago as an informative and sometimes challenging website has descended to this juvenile level of political commentary.
    Carries a distinct whiff of the Daily Mail.
    Certainly has no connection to the late and great Spike Milligan.

    “For Argyll?” In your dreams!

  • Scotland’s Big Voice and the ‘One Vote’ fight for the Union
    I met a colleague in Oban this morning who advised me that the SNP had won three by elections on Thursday of this week. I knew that those contests were being held but had heard nothing in the morning news bulletins so I asked him where he had the information from.
    “Oh” he replied, ” I have not yet confirmed the news but I knew that as BBC Scotland had not announced the results or even put them on their website they could only be positive for the nationalists.”
    And so it proved, with substantial wins in Buckie, Glenrothes and Armadale.
