Second last council meeting before the election, feelings running high, commitment, anger, well no actually. labour as usual had a full turnout the SNP had eight present, treating the voters as usual with contempt, five missing and those present not giving a damn, they want to run the council and the country as well.
The fierce cllr. McGuiness, ( ex army ) convenor for growling and snarling, chose today to launch an attack on Renfrewshire Council for not doing enough for sports in the area, not an unusual attack I hear you say, except, well, the council magazine carries a story about ' investing in leisure ' and offers the following information, between three projects the following is being done :-
Lagoon Centre, a £4m sports hall has been started, 6 court games hall, new dance aerobics hall, new changing and expanded fitness area.
Penilee Project, a £2.6m upgrade to pavilion and playing fields with a further £200,000 to come, providing new pavilion, new changing facilities, 1 x synthetic pitch 2 x grass pitches.
Seedhill Project, a £2.2m project providing 1 x new synthetic pitch and 4 x upgraded grass pitches.
Total spend on sports facilities £8.8m. This according to cllr. Mc Guiness and the SNP is a bad news story, you probably won't be surprised to hear that he's retiring in May. And they want to run the council and the country !
