Proposed boundary changes ‘ridiculous’
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.
