Don't think Councillor Kalashnikov will be a Councillor for long. Interesting to see what the SNP do with this clown. Wonder if Kalashnikov's are standard issue for SNP Councillors? Suppose he could take out Steven Purcell...better still Robert Booth while he is playing on his monkey ropes and death slide in Pollok Park :twisted:

What a clown! What a daft thing to do!

Ultimately harmless, but the possible interpretation that could be put on this are very embarassing to the SNP.

Actually, Billy McAllister could certainly have done with one.

Hanif is bad news IMO. A test of the SNP councillors' mettle as to how they deal with him now, methinks.

McAllister fled all teh way back to Gairbraid which in some people's eyes is another country.

He's a community inactivist. Talks a good game but does eff all. Earlier this month Mr McAllister lost a court case in which "he claimed Mr Dingwall slammed a door on him at a surgery when he attempted to represent a tenant with a housing problem.

A sheriff at Dumbarton Sheriff Court decided there was no case to answer and dismissed the claims. "

I cannot remember Donald Dewar claiming he had been assaulted by a 70 year old. But then again Jamie Webster might.

Councillor McNumpty continues his campaign against the GHA.

Eddie Roy, 61, and his wife Irene, 65, say a dispute involving a neighbour and Glasgow Housing Association (GHA) has left them almost completely housebound.

For more than 20 years the couple and others in their block have had a gentleman’s agreement with their neighbours that they can walk through the garden to exit on to the street.

However, problems arose when a new neighbour moved in and ­complained that an increase in the volume of traffic through her garden was invading her privacy.

Local councillor Billy McAllister stepped in on her behalf and asked the local housing office to erect a fence.
He said: “Everyone has a right to privacy.



The SNP help another constituent.

From the same story.

"Local councillor Billy McAllister stepped in on her behalf and asked the local housing office to erect a fence. The gate, which the couple and other members of their family had previously used for access, has now been sealed off by the GHA. Now the only way the couple can leave their home is if joiners remove a section of the fence which must then be closed.

Last week the GHA dispatched three joiners in a fleet of vehicles to the couple’s home to allow them to attend a funeral.

They were apparently then told by housing bosses to be back home for 3pm to allow the joiners to seal up the fence once more."

Errmm... whit? I think I'm misunderstanding this one.

Yaay! for the considerate previous tenant, Boo! for the stroppy current one, and Geezabrek! for the councillor and all that but..... there's a block of flats where the sole means of access is to traipse through someone's petunias?

Not the sole means of access Josef as part of the quote is missing.

The only other route involves negotiating a hill and steps which the ­couple say they are now unable to do because of their deteriorating health. Irene is in a wheelchair and Eddie suffers from advanced emphysema which has left him unable to walk more than a few steps.
