THREE CHEERS FOR ANGUS
GRAHAM!!! At last the Audit Commission are to look into the workings
of the Comhairle. Everyone Amadan speaks to in the Western Isles thinks
there is merit in an investigation and if our mail box is anything to
go by, the Audit Commission should take a very large magnifying glass
with them. If the electorate thinks fishy things are going on, why oh
why, do the councillors not? (Except for Angus Coir of course).
HIGHLAND COUNCIL HANGING BASKET LEAGUE
NEW APPOINTMENTS TO THE COMHAIRLE
Comhairle nan Eilean Siar have appointed Ray Bowyer (Castaway 2000) to the post of Chief Executive Designate.
The Convener, Alex MacDonald, welcomed the appointment of Mr Bowyer and said that his experience of living in the islands and the fact that he's probably the only one who can scare the present incumbent out of his office, as being crucial to his success. Mr Bowyer, 55, says he is delighted to be appointed and looks forward to leading the council into the new millenium.
He brings a wealth of relevant experience to the post including press evasion, arguing, drinking, swearing, fighting, and having at least half a page of Stornoway Gazette column space dedicated to himself for a minimum three weeks in a row.
CNES have also announced the appointment of Highland psychic Swein MacDonald to the post of "Comhairle nan Eilean Seer". A spokesperson for the council told Amadan that the appointment was a cost cutting exercise as it is hoped that Mr MacDonald will forsee any new scandal coming the councils way before the likes of Angus Graham finds out and causes another stooshie.
Amadan attempted to interview Mr MacDonald about his new job but neighbours told us he left in a hurry five minutes before we arrived.
