Union­ist was al­ways likely to be elected

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, There is an irony in Is­lay Coun­cil­lor Alas­tair Red­man’s vic­tory let­ter high­light­ing sep­a­ratists say­ing he was un­electable, which he has proven wrong.

Prior to his elec­tion, Mr Red­man was on BBC Alba say­ing peo­ple on the Is­lay doorstep used to talk about all the Is­lay rev­enue go­ing to the Ex­che­quer and not much com­ing back.

Now it has switched to whether you are sep­a­ratist or union­ist. So it is no sur­prise that, with three coun­cil seats avail­able in the Kin­tyre and the Is­lands ward, Mr Red­man, be­ing a union­ist, was elected.

He should thank the sep­a­ratists for help­ing him land a nice tax­payer-funded job as a coun­cil­lor. Colin M Camp­bell, Bru­ach Gorm, Port Char­lotte, Isle of Is­lay.
