Pro­posed bound­ary changes ‘ridicu­lous’

The Oban Times - - Letters - Alan Reid, Dunoon.

Sir, The pro­posed changes to coun­cil ward bound­aries are ab­so­lutely ridicu­lous and the SNP gov­ern­ment must stop these from go­ing ahead.

It is ut­ter non­sense for SNP MSP Michael Rus­sell to try to de­flect blame to Ar­gyll and Bute coun­cil for this. It’s the Scot­tish gov­ern­ment, not the coun­cil, which will de­cide whether or not these stupid pro­pos­als go ahead.

The SNP gov­ern­ment should stop this ab­surd process now. Mr Rus­sell should be di­rect­ing his fire at the SNP gov­ern­ment, not us­ing this is­sue as a stick with which to beat the coun­cil. They have op­posed these stupid pro­pos­als, not ‘rolled over and ac­cepted them’ as claimed by Mr Rus­sell in his at­tempt to de­flect at­ten­tion from where the real power lies - his own gov­ern­ment at Holy­rood.
