More strange goings on in Argyll and Bute.
One Councillor has a nice wee sideline in providing 'free range eggs' supposedly from Stronchuillan Farm (but which seem to be bought in bulk elsewhere and then re-packaged)
Eggs from this farm in which he seems to have an interest are then delivered to, amongst other places, the Isle of Bute where the Depute leader of the Council also, allegedly, has a farm.
This week a council employee was ordered to use a council vehicle to deliver these eggs to an unnamed premises for re-sale.
Now, we are not interested in the fact that these eggs may be fraudulently misrepresented as being 'free range' to the long suffering people of Argyll and Bute.
We are not even interested in the insurance aspect of a council vehicle being misused for the carriage of fresh produce.
Rather, we are interested in this Councillor rejecting an appeal by a local worker who was fired - after 32 years service - on trumped up charges after refusing to do work 'off the books' for a friend of the same Councillor.
The charges were 'refusing to obey a reasonable order' and 'misuse of council property' and the story even made its way into The Sun.
Corruption is not limited to the strange goings on in Parliament it seems.
Or, maybe I am just wrong in my belief that councillors are elected to represent their constituents rather than feather their own nests at our expense.
