Sgoiltean Ùra - the story so far

I don't know how Hebrides News got the story of the offer of £10,000 of taxpayers money we received from Sgoiltean Ùra, but I can (obviously) confirm that it is correct and that they also offered to pay some - and only some - of our legal fees.

Without admitting liability.

I hadn't really wanted this to get into the public domain for reasons I won't go into at present, but the legal defences are now in from Sgoiltean Ùra, and whilst they are a public document, there are good tactical reasons for keeping my cards close to my chest at the moment.

I'm not going elaborate any more at the moment, as the period for adjustments in the Court of Session is still open (search for Nicolson) for another few weeks, and there are other matters going on in parallel.

I can also confirm that complaints have gone to Audit Scotland and detailed complaints will be following to the Public Service Ombudsman and to the Standards Commission. About who and what I'm not saying.

Isn't it true that the Council have never won in the Court of Sessions?

That'll be 5% of your winnings for that bit of advice.

anyone notice how the line changed from 'it's with the lawyers' to 'there is no out of court settlement'.

That's my money the tossers are wasting.
