I wonder how many of West Dunbartonshire Council’s staff voted for the SNP ? or Renfrewshire Council's Staff or Aberdeen's I wonder how they are feeling now, the broken promises are piling up and now we have the SNP controlled West Dunbartonshire Council ratting on a deal which was previously agreed between UNISON and the then Labour controlled council to back pay workers in line with equal pay legislation. Approx. 2,000 workers will lose out because of this latest piece of SNP treachery, they call themselves Scotland’s Party you know, loyal to Trump, Souter and Connery but Scottish workers ? don’t be daft.
In Renfrewshire the SNP, Scotland’s Party remember ? awarded top earning officers a rise of 16.7 % yes, you read that right 16.7 % while their own workers, yes Scottish workers, were striking for a rise in line with inflation having been offered 2.5 % for 3 years in a row, council staff in Renfrewshire and in West Dunbartonshire are learning the hard way what the SNP are capable of doing to low paid workers, they grind them down and treat them with contempt.
The SNP in a breathtaking display of deceit and cowardice called a special meeting to renege on the previous deal, the vote was 8 each which allowed the Lord Provost Dennis Agnew to have his moment of shame as he used his casting vote against the workers, Dennis and the SNP will no doubt tell you that he and they are on the side of Scottish workers but, really they are just spineless cowards, when the time came to stand up and be counted and support their own work force they betrayed them. This is the self styled Scotland’s Party, god help Scotland then.
I ask again, is there anyone from the SNP prepared to criticise them, there must be some members who know that they are betraying the people of Scotland, is Salmond (the spiv) that powerful ? Is he that scary ? or are the SNP members not up to it ? I have never known a more cowed party membership, no one can be found to disagree about anything, that’s not harmony, it’s not solidarity it’s naked fear, Bravehearts my “Jim Royle”
The title is of course borrowed from the Proclaimers who seen through the SNP a long time ago, the rest of the country are doing the same.
