Labour has lost touch with people
The Labour Party rightly got the name of the Red Tories because they have lost touch with the values of ordinary people.
It is now down to the progressive parties to end the inequalty in our society to redress the balance of fairness and justice.
Is it fair if you are poor in this country that because you cannot set up a direct debit you are charged excessive amounts for paying your bills and if you are at the lower income scale you are charged exsorbatant rates to borrow money or forced to go to money shops?
It must be a right of every individual to earn a living wage so they dont go to foodbanks. There is no safety net for people who are in crisis, since the local authories took over the welfare fund it is nigh impossible to get help.
Is it fair that if you are sick or disabled that a private company that has been set targets by the government decides your level of help, when people are dying through this?
The poor sick and disadvantaged have to have voice it is time for a change and for a new political system to come into play. Fulton M Hunter, Cambuslang.
Then-First Minister Alex Salmond said he was confident voters in Rutherglen and Cambuslang would back Scottish independence.
In an exclusive interview with the Reformer during his visit to the Burgh, Mr Salmond claimed there was a“natural majority,”for a yes vote in the two towns. Ultimately, South Lanarkshire voted‘no’.
It was an historic day in the Burgh with the Scottish Cabinet holding a meeting in Rutherglen for the first time, with 10 Scottish Ministers in the Fernhill Community Centre.
Elsewhere, Cambuslang Rugby Club was appealing for rugby players living in the area to consider joining them.
