Some 2 weeks ago the local labour Party went out leafleting as it does most weeks; they managed to deliver a good amount thanks to the efforts of our party members and friends; so what I hear you ask. Well a couple of days after this leaflet drop there appeared a letter in the Paisley Daily Express from none other than Cllr. McCartin the leader and also head of the soliciting department for the local Liberal Democrats. Ms. McCartin was not thrilled; the leaflet went out in her ward you see and she was as joyful as a one legged man in an a**e kicking competition.
The fact that her deeds and those of her colleagues in her own wretched group and in their even more abject SNP partners since they formed the coalition from hell has left her and them vulnerable seems to have escaped her. That is no revelation to those who know her and have had to put up with her conceit and ignorance over the years; she has the appalling but deserved reputation of being impervious to everything but blows, utterly uninsultable you would have fared better trying to insult the late far more agreeable Bernard Manning, so what did the Labour leaflet say to provoke this rush to print? Let’s see.
The cruel Tory budget wouldn’t be possible without Libdem support.
The Libdems have supported the Tory 20% VAT bombshell.
They have supported risky cuts to public spending despite previously denouncing them.
They have backed the freezing of child benefits and cutting tax credits for millions of families.
In Renfrewshire they supported SNP cuts to teacher jobs and the cutting of school busses.
In Renfrewshire they have supported the SNP’s increased charges to the elderly.
Cllr. McCartin hopes to get away with this catalogue of disgrace but we don’t have it in mind to let that happen.
She; (McCartin) clearly thinks that repeating falsehoods makes them true, such as accusing Labour of walking away from a coalition. Would she have entered a coalition if Cllr. Mackay had demanded her resignation as the price for a pact? That’s what Clegg did with Gordon Brown; Cllr. Mackay would still be getting treatment if he had dared suggest such a thing, it was the Libdems who walked or more accurately crawled away.
The Libdems stated prior to the election that some things were non negotiable and they would not deal with anyone unless they got their way on such things as; Abolishing Trident, Delaying Cuts, no VAT rise, and the introduction P.R. and in a breathtaking display of spineless duplicity they discarded all of them.
In Renfrewshire the Libdems came last in the number of popular votes cast and third out of the four parties; they got 4 out of 40 seats and Cllr. McCartin has the quite reprehensible effrontery to claim this as some kind of mandate.
At future elections people will remember their Westminster betrayal and in Renfrewshire their support for the SNP closures of libraries, schools, swimming pools and the unpardonable decision to remove school transport. They supported savage education cuts meaning we have the worst teacher pupil ratios in Scotland thanks to Cllr. McCartin and her SNP colleagues. She claims that people are joining the Libdems “because of what we stand for” is this what passes for humour in the Libdems? What they stand for! Read that again readers “what they, (the Libdems) stand for” can I be the first to know what that is when they tell us? They will without shame join the Tories, or the SNP or Labour, meaning plainly and frankly that they are “up for sale” to the highest bidder at all times no matter who that is, they wouldn’t blink at joining the BNP.
Their ‘policies’ are what they are told to adopt by their paymasters. They believe in nothing and they stand for nothing and shamefully, they form the Renfrewshire Council Administration, we are left to wonder if Cllr. McCartin has any shame, any sense of decorum, just what depths is this woman prepared to sink to, will we ever find that out?
