Oor Graham wades into the SNP this week, political boots and fists flying. The LibDem mannie claims the SNP proposals to restore area committess are “unaffordable and unrealistic”. Newly declared Independent candidate Ritchie Cunningham has it in for the SNP too, he thinks the SNP proposal is “laughable”. This observer would think that the SNP proposals have been costed, no doubt more will be revealed next week Mr Cunningham also seems to think it is Holyrood that is taking power away from local communities. Colin MacAulay fights back for the SNP in response to letters fired at the party last week. All very laudable but perhaps we could have a bit of debate too about things like the Common Good Fund and whether it should be under the control of the Highland Council's 80 councillors?
If political debate hits the spot for you try page 8 of the Nairnshire this week, there is also a, perhaps, refreshing spotlight on a local issue as Rupert Furze (not a candidate) explains his alarm that the by-pass will have no exits between its start and finish points, according to information provided to him at the recent West CC meeting..
More in this week’s Nairnshire including a top of the range editorial entitled “The Usual Suspects”.
