A poor choice of elec­tion can­di­dates

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, Well done Ann Horn in high­light­ing the greed of Alan Reid. Re­jected by the elec­torate as an MP, re­jected as an MSP he is now elected as a coun­cil­lor.

Still not good enough, he has now put him­self for­ward for the com­ing gen­eral elec­tion as a MP. What hypocrisy.

On top of this we now have Jamie McGrigor ap­pear­ing from the wilder­ness.

And Bren­dan O’Hara, a novice MP but adept at claim­ing ex­penses. Not con­tent with a salary of £74,000, first class travel and sub­sidised meals, his first year’s ex­penses put him in the top 10 claimants in Scot­land.

If these three are the best our county can muster, don’t ex­pect Argyll and the Isles to pros­per in the near fu­ture. D John­son, Tar­bert.
