Up before the Procurator

AlexMacLeodHCPortraits083CHOSENAlex Macloed is up in front of the Procurator for election fraud. It is alleged that he falsified his expenses, altered invoices for printing costs and registered at a false address. He blames it on youthful inexperience Before Mr. Macloed stood for election as a councillor he had been studying law in Edinburgh. He had preciously worked in Alex Salmond’s office and for Rob Gibson MSP’s election campaign. One just wonders where he got the ideas from? Another more pertinent issue is that whilst Mr. Macloed was a Councillor for Highland Council he was very vocal in his support for wind farms and we have to ask if he influenced any approvals in the Caithness area. An interesting conundrum if he is found guilty. Earlier this year Mr. Macloed resigned from the SNP party and last month resigned as a Councillor. The case has been listed for the 7th November

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.

    He managed considerable damage during his short spell on the planning committee as members further afield tend to listen to local ones. On at least one occasion other members admitted changing their minds because some local members were in favour of turbines and it was assumed they knew the area. In his case he had only moved here in May, well over a year after his election, and until then was rarely seen in the county as he lived in Tain and doesn’t drive! He also regularly opposed site visits.
