A few months back the Labour Group on Renfrewshire Council put forward a motion condemning the proposed cuts in the Tory / Libdem budget. The motion fell because the combined votes of the SNP, Tories and Libdems voted it down, they refused to condemn the Westminster Tory budget cuts. Those cuts are now biting and I will highlight some of them on a regular basis.
The SNP and Libdem candidates for Holyrood in our council Mackay SNP, McCartin Libdem, Adam SNP and presumably the other SNP candidate Doig who is not a councillor refused to criticise or condemn the Cameron Clegg attacks on the poor and vulnerable, these people are now asking you the people of Renfrewshire to give them your vote.
Example 5 – ( Child Poverty action group ) – Is it a good thing for Government to provide assistance to children who are born into poverty? I say yes it is a good thing. Tory/Liberal Democrat cuts will mean that these children and their families will lose £1,500 a year according to the ( Child Poverty action Group ) I think that is a disgrace, what do you think?
I would like Renfrewshire Council leader Mackay SNP to tell us if this is one of the cuts which he is on record as saying "are about right" perhaps he could do this before people go to the polls for Holyrood.
