The game’s up, Wills!

Yet another attack on what he calls the SIC’s “truly pitiful and embarrassing leadership” has been made by councillor Jonathan Wills, I read in your front page story of last week. This comes about four months after the same Mr Wills, if my memory serves me correctly, agreed to bury the hatchet with SIC convener Sandy Cluness and move on, for the good of the council’s future.

From last week’s revelations, coming as they do in the same week that councillors agreed a list of recommendations from chief executive Alistair Buchan, it appears that Mr Wills can never move on. Once he makes an attack there will be no mercy until his opponent is ruined.

I first heard of Mr Wills when he made repeated attacks on my late friend and colleague Edward Thomason, when he was leader of the SIC, calling him all sorts of names and resorting to childish innuendo. Thankfully he did not succeed in bringing down Edward, but he most certainly did so more recently with your former chief executive David Clark, costing a pretty penny in the process.

Mr Wills is a wrecker, always has been, always will be. He is interested first and foremost in his own massive ego. Apparently he intends to stand again at the next council elections in 2012. If the people cannot see through him after last week, they never will. Let’s hope the game is finally up.
