‘Long on rhetoric’

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LETTERS -

Sir, As usual, Coun­cil­lor Red­man’s let­ter in last week’s edi­tion of the Ar­gyll­shire Ad­ver­tiser was long on anti-SNP rhetoric and short on fact and in­for­ma­tion.

He firstly fails to dif­fer­en­ti­ate be­tween A roads and trunk roads, beg­ging the ques­tion of the rel­a­tive pro­por­tions as he com­pares Eng­land and Scot­land.

It would be in­ter­est­ing to hear if Coun­cil­lor Red­man thinks the Tory West­min­ster gov­ern­ment bears any re­spon­si­bil­ity for its im­po­si­tion of years of aus­ter­ity and cut­backs.

As the re­spon­si­bil­ity for main­te­nance of A roads lies with lo­cal coun­cils, not the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment, per­haps Coun­cil­lor Red­man will tell us when the A roads for which his rul­ing group is re­spon­si­ble will have them up to stan­dard and also have the grace to ac­knowl­edge the in­crease in bud­get from the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment that has al­lowed Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil ‘to step up to the plate’. David Hay, Mi­nard.
