Hop­ing for your gen­eral elec­tion

The Oban Times - - Election Special -

place for elec­tions. In or­der not to con­fuse mat­ters, this is a first past the post elec­tion for over18s only. Elec­tors are asked to place one cross in one box.

At The Oban Times and Mull and Iona Com­mu­nity Trust de­bate held on Mull last week, ques­tions were mixed. The elec­tion cam­paign hus­tings in Argyll have seen many re­served is­sues dis­cussed.

High on the agenda for the pub­lic is broad­band – and there were some very in­ter­est­ing ques­tions about loy­alty in pol­i­tics. Peo­ple wanted to know if the can­di­dates’ loy­alty was to his or her po­lit­i­cal party or to the vot­ing pub­lic and con­stituents?

Of course, the po­ten­tial politi­cians were all keen to point out that their loy­alty was to the elec­torate.

Two can­di­dates – John Cor­mack of the Scot­tish Chris­tian Party, and Ron­nie Camp­bell, In­de­pen­dent – were con­tacted for elec­tion state­ments but de­clined to sup­ply them.
