My last post was on the manner in which the council responded to the FOIs raised about the costs incurred in the complaint against me. This can be read here.
I followed this up with an email today to all councillors and the press, as follows:

Subject: RE: New response to your FOI request – Michael Breslin v Complaint by four chief officials of Argyll and Bute Council
I note that Cllrs Walsh, E Morton and Scoullar have not replied. No surprises there then but the question posed below will continue to be asked so I ask the three of you again: in what capacity were you acting when you made the complaint?
In yesterday’s National there was more bad press for the council over the very topic below, namely the nonsensical responses to the FOIs. The article can be read here:
The problem we have is that the same Information Commissioner issued a highly critical judgement earlier this month on FOIs related to the sale of Castle Toward. I wasn’t aware of any of this until this morning’s article in The National which can be read here:
One of the many interesting aspects of this is that the report this relates to was released on 7 December but councillors, or at least most of us councillors, weren’t made aware of it. I wonder why. Were Cllrs Walsh, E Morton and Scoullar made aware of this?
Not so happy reading everyone.
