Lib Dems appeal toYes voters
Local Liberal Democrats have made a direct appeal to Rutherglen and Cambuslang voters who voted Yes in the independence referendum but are frustrated by the SNP Government’s stance on public services.
Lead Scottish Parliament Liberal Democrat candidate for Rutherglen South ward Councillor Robert Brown said that the 2016 Scottish Parliament elections were an opportunity to tackle the challenges facing local schools, hospitals, police and employment.
He said: “The question at the elections is not whether Scotland should be independent or not – that question was resolved by the Referendum decision last year. The question is how do we want to run our public services?
He maintains children entering primary school in Rutherglen and Cambuslang today will probably be in a bigger class than those who have just left.
He also highlighted problems faced by the single police force, the growing shortage of GPs and a threat to centralise GP Out of Hours services.
