FERGUSLIE SCHOOLS

St Fergus primary have just had a glowing report from HMI and now as their local councillor I will bask in their reflected glory. The 'heedie' Maureen Haney informed me of this and she was chuffed by it and quite rightly so, as I've said before the schools, teachers and kids in Ferguslie are a match for anyone and I'm proud to represent them. St. Fergus were given high praise for their accommodation, their inclusive ethos, their excellent community links, their excellent and hard working school board and the quality of the teaching staff as well as other things too numerous to mention, well done to all.

Anyone driving or walking through the estate will notice an almost completed new school building, this will replace the Craigielea and Ferguslie primaries and will be called Glencoats Primary.

All three primaries have served the Ferguslie community well over the years and they continue to do so, the closure of any school is a mixture of sadness and optimism for the future. Some parents will have a last look at where they were taught as infants and the memories will flood back, they will also look with pride at the new school and the state of the art surroundings and facilities and be delighted that their children will be part of it.

I regard it as a privilege to be associated with the education of the children of the area and I pay tribute to everyone involved, above all I'm proud to be part of Renfrewshire's Labour Council who have delivered these schools despite our opponents saying that we would never do it.

Good news certainly but are you going to explain to your constituents why the budget is good for them?

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

RFS - Yes.

RightForScotland said...

Would it be unkind to note that you have not done so yet becuase the party has not told you what to think of it?

What were your first impressions? Why did you not blog about it that night (I did)?

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

RFS - You are clutching at straws, I didn't write about it becuase I didn't and still don't feel the need.

Dod you know the income tax "Cut" was a Tax raise for anyone earning less than £18,000. Between £12,000 and £18,000 they don't even get an improvement in WTC to offset it.

How's that for a socialist chancellor?

Even though the UK's very poorest are paying for tax cuts for the very richest?

Come on Tel, don't be coy...or are you faird of incurring the displeasure of your far right true blue New Labour bosses this close to election time? Or maybe that you don't want the poorest to know how they've been shafted and save their votes for you?

Either way, it is either craven cowardice or hypocrisy, so which?

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

shotgun - I am happy with the budget and I'm not about to waste my time arguing with you about it.

As for cowardice and hypocricy, I bow to your superior knowledge of these.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

jackart - Which jackart is this ? Go Back to being the foul mouthed squalid bigot, you were far more believable then.

Jackart said...

Bigot? I'd rather be a bigot who sniggers at fat socialists than one who hates israelis and americans.

You are quite pathetic

So you'll be tellign the poorest workers in your ward that you are happy for them to subsidise tax cuts for the rich?

Of course you won't waste time, because you can't and won't to save your skin by supporting a far right true blue New labour master.

Your boast of being a socialist should and does disgust real socialists. You have no shame and no integrity, and no doubt you will continue to take the thirty pieces of true blue silver offered by New labour.

Hypocrite.

"jackart - ... Go Back to being the foul mouthed squalid bigot"

Is this because you don't like arguing agianst valid points? You prefer people come down to your level and engage in abuse (which is fun, I grant you).

You're pathetic.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

Jackart - I think we've heard this I'm getting fed up with you repeating yourself.

So no answer above prevarication from the so called socilaist?

I am more of a socialist than you.

Cllr Terry Kelly said...

Shotgun - That stench that surrounds you comes from the right wing press and commentators that you are now in bed with.

Socialist is it ?

Shotgun said...

You don't know which party I support, and it would surprise you if you did.

Yes indeed, and honest enough with sufficient integrity t dump true blue Bliar and Brown and New labour instead of hanging on with fingertips to them like a little puppy.

You are a disgrace to anyone and anything even tentatively described as a socilaist and you are a son of Thatcher.

All this blah blah, right wing press, blah blah, right wing this and that is so much crap to deflect from the fact that YOU are a ringt winger right up New Labour tru blue bum.

You wnat to be honest and leave at least a legacy of integrity? Dump Bliar, Brown and New labour and be a real socilast instead of the plastic one...blue plastic one.
