SNP still ob­sessed with in­dyref

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

Dear Ed­i­tor I’ve been fol­low­ing some of the SNP can­di­dates in this elec­tion and what they have been fo­cus­ing on on­line.

It seems that yet again their ob­ses­sion with the con­sti­tu­tion is com­ing be­fore any­thing else.

In­deed, last week I watched when in Holy­rood Na­tion­al­ist min­is­ters de­liv­ered a rushed set of state­ments on is­sues like the mesh scan­dal, fail­ing men­tal health strate­gies and a u-turn on en­ter­prise boards.

This week the first min­is­ter has gone cam­paign­ing for Scot­tish in­de­pen­dence in Amer­ica.

Yet at home, ex­pec­tant moth­ers are be­ing turned away from sup­pos­edly flag­ship hos­pi­tals, the new Forth Road Bridge has been de­layed and our sham­bles of a rail ser­vice shows no sign of im­prove­ment.

When it comes to the coun­cil elec­tions next month, it is be­com­ing crys­tal clear that only Labour will put our own com­mu­ni­ties first in­stead of ob­sess­ing over a sec­ond di­vi­sive ref­er­en­dum.

I re­mem­ber the way it dom­i­nated ev­ery as­pect of po­lit­i­cal life only a cou­ple of years ago.

Out and about and speak­ing to peo­ple in Cam­bus­lang East, it’s ap­par­ent there’s no ap­petite for an­other ref­er­en­dum. Labour will keep stand­ing up for our com­mu­ni­ties; the SNP will keep ob­sess­ing with in­de­pen­dence. Stu­art Gal­lacher Labour can­di­date for Cam­bus­lang East
