Full Fis­cal Au­ton­omy

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The gen­eral elec­tion cam­paign was one of the most heated but Mar­garet thinks she ac­tu­ally had an eas­ier time than some of her coun­ter­parts.

She came un­der fire af­ter stum­bling with her words when dis­cussing Full Fis­cal Au­ton­omy at a hus­tings event, with an au­dio of the mo­ment be­ing shared on so­cial me­dia.

But she is philo­soph­i­cal look­ing back:“I sup­pose in a way I got off quite lightly be­cause I think some of our other can­di­dates got a lot more abuse than I did. I think I dealt with it the right way.

“In one re­spect so­cial me­dia is great, it’s a great way to let peo­ple con­tact you but there’s a time and a place and a cer­tain fo­rum for cer­tain com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

“It’s wa­ter un­der the bridge now, I can for­get that and move on.”
