Yesterday at the Community and Family Care board I once again stated that he (Mackay) had said in public at a full council meeting that "the Tory/Libdem Government budget cuts were about right" he once again decided not to comment on my statement.
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 7 – Do you agree with me that people who are old, frail and disabled should be looked after by the state? SNP candidate Derek Mackay doesn't seem to think so! A recent announcement by the Tory/Libdem Government (SNP supported) after Parliament went into recess has axed funding to 13 social care projects. Vulnerable elderly people suffering from disabilities, dementia, chronic illness and mental health problems will bear the brunt of this decision which, along with the other cuts Derek Mackay the SNP Holyrood candidate has described as being "about right"
I would like Renfrewshire Council leader Mackay SNP to tell us if these are some 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.
