Look­ing for Mary Devine

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

We are try­ing to trace rel­a­tives of Mary Devine who lived in Rose Bank Tower, Cam­bus­lang.

It is be­lieved that Mary served as a coun­cil­lor and per­haps a mayor for Cam­bus­lang and may have died around 1988/89.

Mary had two daugh­ters, one named Mar­ion the other thought to be Moira who it is thought worked at Wool­worths in Cam­bus­lang.

Mary also had an adopted son, Ed­ward (Ed­die) Devine who was from Sun­der­land, he mar­ried Ellen Gil­lian and to­gether had two sons Ed­ward and Bernard, be­fore mov­ing to Mans­field, Not­ting­hamshire.

Ed­die died in 1985 when he was 47 in Mans­field.

There are rel­a­tives in Mans­field that would like to get in touch.

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion please email gra­ham@park­erpr.com or call 0114 250 8586 Gra­ham Parke via email to dis­crim­i­nate against only one group in Scot­land, foot­ball fans.

A class war and an act that has been crit­i­cised by hu­man rights ad­vo­cacy groups.

I’m fed up of weak SNP politi­cians who toe the party line and do what they’re told.

So come on Clare Haughey tell us - do you sup­port the foot­ball act, a sim­ple yes or no? El­iz­a­beth-Anne Cal­laghan (a dis­crim­i­nated Foot­ball Fan) Freeneuk Wynd Cam­bus­lang

More­over, you ‘con­firmed’ that the SNP did not say in their 2011 man­i­festo that they would end un­fair coun­cil tax.

Thing is Mr An­drew, the quote I used in my let­ter dated, 30/03/2016, – “… pro­duce a fairer sys­tem based on abil­ity to pay to re­place the coun­cil tax” - was taken di­rectly from that man­i­festo.

It is on page three un­der the now ironic head­ing – “Wealth­ier and Fairer”. A D Mof­fat Ruther­glen havens have led to de­vel­op­ing coun­tries los­ing some 20 per cent of tax rev­enues.

How­ever, the prob­lem is greater than this, with cor­rupt elites in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries fun­nelling wealth off­shore, while these coun­tries are mired in poverty.

Ox­fam es­ti­mates that tax havens cost poor coun­tries £170bil­lion in lost rev­enues ev­ery year, with rich Africans hav­ing £500bil­lion stashed away in off­shore ac­counts.

To put this into per­spec­tive, that’s enough to save four mil­lion chil­dren’s lives and pay for ed­u­ca­tion for ev­ery child in the con­ti­nent.

The UK has an op­por­tu­nity to change this, should it de­sire to do so.

By clos­ing down our net­work of 17 tax havens in the crown depen­den­cies and ter­ri­to­ries we have an op­por­tu­nity to take a moral lead.

Banks must also be made to open their books and re­veal the true ben­e­fi­cia­ries of shell com­pa­nies. In­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies should be pur­sued for the tax they avoid.

The cur­rent con­tro­versy ex­tends well be­yond hold­ing a few rich in­di­vid­u­als and cor­po­ra­tions to ac­count, it strikes at the very heart of the cur­rent global im­bal­ance and the com­plic­ity of the West in rip­ping off the global south.

Let’s use this as an op­por­tu­nity to cur­tail this dis­tor­tion and end a sit­u­a­tion that sees the wealth of the few im­peril the liveli­hoods of the many.
