Mackay has cheek to turn up in Rutherglen
I was surprised that Derek Mackay had the bare-faced cheek to turn up in Rutherglen to open the SNP campaign shop.
This is, after all, the finance secretary responsible for cutting millions of pounds from the South Lanarkshire Council budget.
I did not see any pictures of Mr Mackay talking to voters. I expect he was keeping out of the way as local people in this area know that the SNP cuts have plunged public services into crisis .
I am glad that in Labour candidate Gerard Killen we will have someone who will stand up for local people and support public services.
