Argyll and Bute Council have just announced 140 devastating service cuts choices of between £21.7 - £26 million over the next 5 years. This will impact on every woman, man and child in our area, especially our most vulnerable.

The rank hypocrisy and sheer arrogance shown by our Council Administration towards the people of Argyll and Bute is startling.

This is clearly demonstrated by the recommendation of the Policy & Resources Committee that will meet in the Council Chambers in Lochgilphead at 10.30am on Thursday 8th Oct.

At this meeting, on the one hand our Councillors will rubber stamp 140 tough bottom end service cuts choices, whilst on the other they will almost certainly vote to recruit two social media officers. The main task of these officers will be to mitigate the fall out and spin the cuts choices at a cost of £76K per annum.

As an example, choice number 26 is to remove the central budget for children with additional support needs, which will save our Council 80K, but will have a huge, detrimental impact on all our pupils. If the Digital Communication Officers were not appointed then this valuable service would not need to be cut.

From school to the grave.. 20% rise [above inflation] on burial /cremation costs.

Getting rid of classroom assistants/ music tutors/ lollipop persons.

Maybe the high heid yins will offer to take a pay cut?

It would appear that the Council has dropped plans for the two new posts [for now].
