Constituents in the Dalry and West Kilbride ward of North Ayrshire and Arran council may be puzzled by their elected representatives support for Belfast football club Linfield.
Todd Ferguson is his name and it seems that Irish related matters are of more concern to him that social services in the deprived ward that he was voted in to represent at the May elections.

Use of the term ‘lads’ would suggest some sort of affinity with the Belfast club but there was no distant support for them before the first round qualifiers against La Favorita. Perhaps his ‘support’ for Linfield is related more to a dislike for their opponents tonight?

Surprised by the rage surrounding #orangewalk we’ve had about as many marches recently as we’ve had elections – all should be respected.

According to his election blurb Fergie has recently returned from 14 years living and working in Australia and New Zealand. Touchingly he is living with his parents John and Beryl in Millport from where he is apparently studying Scottish History at Glasgow University.
His constituents will be pleased to learn that he is ‘an expert in the fast paced media industry’ but we only have his word on that.
No doubt Councillor Ferguson is hard working and diligent and keen to help all constituents regardless of their politics, religion or which football team they support.
