Mar­garet Ferrier MP’s re­ac­tion to the Queen’s Speech caused de­bate on our so­cial me­dia sites this week.

Ms Ferrier said the speech was “out of touch”.

Here’s what you had to say:

“There’s a sur­prise! She is snp, not that long ago they did there best to smash the union” - Davy Robert­son Oneil (via Face­book)

“A state-spon­sored bil­lion­aire de­liv­ers her min­is­ters’ plans for aus­ter­ity mea­sures that will im­pact the weak­est in her realm... Immoral.” - Mur­ray A. Nix (via Face­book)

“She’s not telling any lies though is she? I hon­estly think the Queen of Eng­land along with her gov­ern­ment re­ally are quite delu­sional if you ask me. You only have to ask her the cost of her crown and other jew­ellery which could build a new hous­ing scheme; hos­pi­tal or school! A real eye opener.” - Chris Ford (via Face­book)

“Your head­line of course is mis­lead­ing. She knows the Queen is only speak­ing the words of the Tory gov­ern­ment and we did not ex­pect any­thing dif­fer­ent from them. And she is cor­rect in that the Tories have no man­date to run Scot­land. But I think they will get the dou­ble lock on the EU refer­n­dum be­cause that will suit the Tory Gov­ern­ment, Labour and the Lib Dem who want to stay in the EU and they know there is a good chance Scot­land will vote to stay in, af­ter all it is the rea­son Mr Cameron wanted to keep Scot­land in the Union.” - Elaine Ni­col (via Face­book) Ms Ferrier’s sup­port for the wind tur­bine pro­tes­tors in Half­way was also picked up on:

“Doesn’t the SNP sup­port re­new­ables? What’s wrong with com­mu­nity rais­ing some cash for lo­cal ser­vices?” - Hi­lary Paton (via Twit­ter)

“Lo­ca­tion is v bad, di­rectly be­hind homes in last stretch of un­de­vel­oped green belt land in area” - Shona (via Twit­ter) Not ev­ery­one was happy that McDon­alds had taken an­other step to­wards open­ing their Ruther­glen restau­rant:

“Great. More un­healthy eat­ing op­tions. That’s just what Ruther­glen needs...” - Mur­ray A. Nix (via Face­book) Fi­nally, there were some nice words af­ter we reprinted an in­ter­view with Colin Jack­son fol­low­ing his death at the week­end:

“I met Colin Jack­son at a book sign­ing, a true gen­tle­man” - David Ste­wart (via Twit­ter)

“Lovely reprint of an in­ter­view with Colin.” - Maxie (via Twit­ter)

Go to www.face­book.com/ Ruther­glen­Re­former or www. twit­ter.com/Ruglen­Re­former and get in­volved in the de­bate. Our top five sto­ries on­line last week were:

1. Man hos­pi­talised af­ter blaze

2. McDon­ald’s lat­est

3. Wed­ding gift plea

4. Turn­ing the Hy­dro pur­ple

5. Queen’s speech “out of touch” I think we will get a draw but still qual­ify. It’ll be a wee score draw.

I think they will win. We have im­proved big time un­der Stra­chan. John Barry (50).

Com­ing soon McDon­ald’s has got you talk­ing this week
