Comment posted Council Leader, Councillors, CEO, Senior Officers: working relationships by Crazy She-Bat.
So what’s the alternative? Are we willing to accept the standard excuse “Ve vere only obeying ordahs”?
Don’t think so, having seen this lot in action too many times now to know, having seen them publically lecture councillors even on the Alliance of Nitwits.
Things have to change – or is it alright with everyone that we keep on these officers and continue to allow them to waste what’s in the Council’s bank account?

- Long time no comment Ourman. Hope you are well, hows Norway?
You’ll also notice as yet there has been no reply to my questions.
Now even though Simon may be in Tiree “hanging ten”, I also know for a fact there is internet out there as my cousin is never off Facebook.
Perhaps Simon is about to vanish again. Shame, I was enjoying the debate.
- Like that one Robert – the Argyll Worst Group
- So what are you saying Simon? That it is a case of only following orders? Is that what has been going on all this time? If so, then who’s exactly? You are hinting at the former administration. Is that a case of you “understand” or “hear” that it was them? Or are you willing to come right out and say it? According to you Newsie is always doing it, are you going to be a hypocrite with your own comments?
And karma? Let’s not forget, I would not be on here having a rant without Cleland Sneddon having rattled my cage. If he’d done a good, fair job and followed the law, I would have nothing to complain about and there would probably not be a Luss Primary School anymore.
My first comment was made partly in jest, I thought that would be obvious. My second was to clarify my true position on this.
Investigate practices so far.
Find evidence (which I am sure there will be – including interviewing the 2 Media staff that got suspended – does anyone actually know what the joke was? I’d love to know).
Then sack Loudon if it is appropriate.
Walker – there are clear issues in Education. Her staff hate her. She has 2 levels of completely unnecessary management that are seemingly ineffective because reports are coming into ARSN of massive management issues in the Secondary Schools of Argyll.
But again, proceedure applies. Investigate, find evidence and then a wee look at her contract and see what we can do.
I think you are being a wee bitty optimistic that all these officers who have displayed arrogance and incompetence on such huge levels can have complete personality transplants.
That would be as realistic as you and I going to the pub together.
My conscience is always clear. I’m a good girl.
Most of the time
- Well said Scruff. Its called Karma Simon, what goes around comes around and we are doing nothing to them that they haven’t ALREADY done to us.
Un-evidenced claims? Isn’t that what Snedders based 2 rounds of school closures on?
However, I am in full agreement. This should be done by the book. Assess performance, identify the areas where performance needs to be improved (God that is a long list for some) and if standards fail to rise – you are the weakest link goodbye!
I never said march in there and P45 them on the spot. A full and proper investigation must be done first into activities to date. Depending on how bad the evidence is that comes back and I am sure there will be some, then appropriate action against the officers concerned must be taken.
We should not lower ourselves to their often illegal and sub-standard actions.
Yes, I am a former council employee, going back as far as the Strathclyde days and the behaviour I have seen with my own eyes from Officers has been disgusting and extremely unprofessional and would not be permitted by most other councils to happen. But then in most other Councils, Officers have some respect for the Councillors they serve.
There are more than just the Officers working at the council though Simon and we know from speaking to people behind the scenes that working for these Officers is a nightmare for many good, decent and hard-working staff.
These Officers need to change their tune or go. Simples.
Have a nice day I know I will
- Simon, c’mon be fair. This is not all of a sudden, I’ve been pleading for them to be sacked for over a year.
I am nothing if not consistent.

Still seeing the world through Council coloured glasses then Simon?
Surely with the amount of manure that is flying around Kilmory nowadays, even you must be thinking there has to be some substance to the claims of nearly everyone else that something is rotten in Castle Greyskull?
- Helensburgh group calls for Argyll and Bute Council to take action against defiant developers
Her Royal Highness Vivien Dance giving it to her loyal subjects in her realm yet again.
She is never going to stop unless she is removed from these positions where she can manipulate to her’s and her consort’s advantage. As Monarch of the Burgh, she probably feels she is above the law…
as she feels she is above anyone else. She kind of reminds me of Katie Hopkins.

I hope this is just the start of Sally’s mountain of mis-information and lies being exposed.
- Glasgow helicopter crash: now the questions – but why no black box?
You know, maybe it’s just me, but I find some of this article and the comments a bit inappropriate at this time.
There are people in mourning. There are people who don’t even know yet if it’s their relative lying there in the morgue. There are injured and people in hospital in the ICU.
Fact is, no-one knows the cause and with several different witnesses giving conflicting statement, this is all just pure conjecture. The investigation in due course will determine the facts here, not us and arguing over it so soon after the accident is distasteful.
Bit of respect and tact please.
