Mackay has cheek to turn up in Ruther­glen

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformet View -

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.

Coun­cil­lor Mar­garet Cowie (Labour), Ruther­glen South
