Nairn SNP provost sacked in a move reminiscent of getting Brown out of Downing Street

Forgive the [slight] hyperbole, but it appears that the blind refusal to accept political realities is not confined to the ranks of Gordon Brown and the Labour Party refusing to accept that whatever else happened in the recent Westminster election, there is no justification for Labour remaining in government in any shape or form.

In any case, returning to the [slightly] more 'parish pump' politics of Nairn, it seems that the Provost, SNP councillor Liz MacDonald, has had to be sacked by her fellow Nairn councillors after having declined to agree to go peacefully by resigning. This really is the denouement of the fact that an majority-led 'Independent' Highland Council has had its head wagged by the SNP-tail ever since this dubious arrangement was arrived at after the last local government elections.
