Scotland kept at standstill
Local Liberal Democrats have called for less talk and more action from the SNP government in their last months of office before next year’s Scottish elections.
Rutherglen councillor Robert Brown, lead Scottish Parliament Liberal Democrat candidate for Glasgow Region, said: “Apart from the referendum, most things have stood still in Scotland or gone backwards under the SNP government over the last eight years.
“An SNP majority has meant massive cuts to colleges, GP shortages and a police force in crisis.
“We have had poorer delivery on childcare places, school attainment numbers and NHS investment than the rest of the UK.
“Another SNP majority would just mean more of the same.
“Instead we need a government that focuses on the day job.
“This is the debate we need going forward to the Scottish Parliament elections next year.
“And I hope everyone in Rutherglen and Cambuslang will get involved in this, rather than looking back to the referendum or blaming someone else for what could be better.”
