It appears that the SNP Scottish Government were aware 4 months ago that 'Doosan Power Systems' had withdrawn plans for 200 jobs in Renfrewshire. In fact the total number of jobs which will not now come to Scotland is 2,700. It appears also that we the Scottish people as well as us here in Renfrewshire are being asked to believe the story that the local SNP led Renfrewshire Council did not know about this because the SNP Scottish Government did not tell the SNP led Renfrewshire Council the bad news and did not tell the rest of Scotland either!
Here is a good question for everyone to consider before voting at the Local Elections coming shortly; DO YOU BELIEVE THIS SNP STORY? Or are you smart enough to work out that the SNP have calculatingly withheld this news to stop it damaging the SNP at the May election? Are you astute enough to spot a lie of omission by a party (the SNP) who are prepared to treat you with scorn?
Before you vote on Thursday May the 3Rd. Give some thought to the kind of people who knowingly misled you in such a conceited way. The SNP think that the voters will be unable to think straight for the noise of the pipes and drums. Here in Renfrewshire Labour have 19 seats to the SNP's 16, the Libdems 3 and the lone Tory who invariably supports the SNP/Libdem coalition or abstains, hence the SNP/Liberal Democrat Renfrewshire Council Coalition, that's the same Liberal Democrats who are forming the UK Government with the Tories. Cameron, Osborne, Clegg, Cable Etc. would not be destroying the lives of the poor and disadvantaged if it were not for the backing of the craven Liberal Democrats. If ever a political party deserved to be heavily punished it's the Libdems. Led by the wretched Eileen McCartin, losing candidate in 9 Westminster/Holyrood elections and now able to hide behind her pile of lost deposits. Remember that this woman has no interest in anything other than herself let alone politics. Given the chance she will revert to type and brazenly sell herself to the highest bidder, there is a word for such women but my pious Catholic upbringing prevents me from using it.
Remember also that the present savage cuts by the UK Tory/Libdem Government are the same cuts which were described by ex SNP Council leader Derek Mackay "as about right" it's time to get rid of this dishonest and deceitful SNP/Libdem coalition and the best way to do that is to vote labour.
4 months ago the SNP knew that the 2,700 jobs which they claimed the credit for were a lost cause but we are only now finding this out, what this means is that the SNP have allowed the Scottish people to continue believing that these jobs would happen when in actual fact they had taken a completely fraudulent and self serving decision to withhold this bad news to boost their election chances. Is this really the kind of people you want to run Scotland? Have you any concern for Scotland's reputation? If you have you will not vote SNP. We need a Labour Administration now!
The story of the postponement of the Doosan investment in Renfrew was front page headline on Renewable Energy Industry newsletter back in February. Is noone from Labour checking developments in the Renewables sector?
Doosan have stated that the Scottish government did not ask them to suppress the news.
Doosan continue to be a major employer in Scotland and the Doosan HQ are in Renfrew - Aren't you a bit embarrassed that no-one from the Labour party has taken any interest in the activities and roadmap of this major employer right on your back door?
"On the Renfrew site there is a modern technology facility which houses a product development function, a technology services business, a production base and a machine shop for large-scale components."

Salmond and the SNP knew about this 4 months ago and said nothing, they are the same people who claimed the credit for getting these ex jobs, this was a lie of omission.
Had Doosan decided that the number of jobs in Renfrewshire was to double to 400 and in Scotland to 5,400 4 months ago do you think we would have heard about it then from Alex (the wee spiv) Salmond, that’s a difficult one isn’t it Jim?
“Doosan have stated that the Scottish government did not ask them to suppress the news”
This sentence is meaningless, the charge of keeping the bad news secret is not levelled at Doosan it is fairly and squarely levelled at the SNP Government.
The rest of your post is a calculated deception, the SNP have been caught out again and you as usual are prepared to expose yourself to ridicule by leaping to their defence, you look silly, they are a bunch of unprincipled liars who are treating cannon fodder like you and the rest of the Scottish people with contempt.
Terry - I see you've failed to address the posts in the other thread which expose you as the unprincipled liar in this sad episode of 'local politics'.
Still - do the local Labour party in Renfrewshire maintain strong industrial links with the major employers or not? In this instance it would appear not. 'Quel damage', for if there was to be any merit in a Labour administration one might have hoped that would have been it.
For the record, I won't be voting SNP in this coming council election - make of that what you will (might be difficult for you to compute that not everyone is a mindless, party apparatchik right enough).
"Councillor" It's really amusing to see all these people falling for the spoof.
The satire's beautifully done - I particularly like the Dave Spart style mission statement (the mis-spelt Italian quote from Bandiera Rosso is spot on)!
Keep up the good work.

I may use satire but this blog is not a ‘spoof’ and I have never heard of Dave Spart, the wrong spelling of Avanti Popolo was first pointed out to me years and years ago but I have never been all that bothered about spelling as long as I am satisfied that readers are not confused by what I write, I would not e.g. normally draw attention to you spelling of Bandiera Rossa as Bandiera Rosso as I don’t regard that as important as I understand what you are trying to say.
I’ve found that over the years it’s frustrated people of the so called left who get exasperated by their inability to get the better of me in an argument who resort to pointing it out.
Thank you for writing and I will as you say “keep up the good work”

Jim – Why do you have to have everything repeated for you? Once again, I do not tell lies.
This is nothing to do with labour; it’s to do with the deliberate lies of Salmond and the SNP government.
As far as your vote is concerned I will only say that I would be very uneasy if I found out you had voted labour that would make me feel bad.
You've already been exposed as a liar with your deliberate misprinting of news stories to mislead and your insistence on declaring falsehoods fact. Sadly it just seems to be typical of Renfrewshire's parochial politics - you are retiring this year aren't you?
To pretend that you wouldn't want my vote for Labour is also a lie, but for you to think that anyone might believe that takes you to an entirely new level of stupidity.

Jim. It’s a matter of great regret that you do not like me but I have told you and showed you before what happens when you keep sending the same posts repeatedly. This was your last chance.
Yes that's right Terry - you don't post the ones which embarrass you, but it's ok I'm used to it, just a little frustrated at the bombastic nature in which you censor posts then attempt to claim victory in every thread.
I've enjoyed learning about the quality of council candidates through you though and wish you a long and happy retirement.

I post everything that’s printable, even you of all people should know that. I’m sometimes given no option particularly by people who want to send me the same post repeatedly like you, I won’t indulge that and I won’t apologise for it either.
I haven’t claimed victory here at all, I’m happy for readers to decide for themselves. You are not doing yourself any favours with this kind of thing. You should spend some time trying to figure how you got yourself in to this situation, that might help you to get out of it with some shred of dignity.
