Rutherglen Reformer - - General Election -

At this elec­tion we have the op­por­tu­nity of a fresh start for Ruther­glen and Hamil­ton West.

Only Labour can beat the SNP here and as your MP I will be a cham­pion for our area, pri­ori­tis­ing you and your fam­ily, not cam­paign­ing for a sec­ond di­vi­sive independence ref­er­en­dum.

Tory and SNP aus­ter­ity is not work­ing.

I will fight to stop cuts to our public ser­vices and in­tro­duce fairer tax plans to en­sure there are mil­lions more to spend on ser­vices in Scot­land, cre­at­ing more jobs and lift­ing peo­ple in our area out of poverty.

As your MP I will stand up for work­ers and back Labour’s plans to in­crease the min­i­mum wage to a real liv­ing wage of £10 per hour. I will sup­port the cre­ation of a Scot­tish In­vest­ment Bank with £20 bil­lion of funds avail­able for local projects and small busi­nesses in Scot­land.

I will stand up for com­muters in Ruther­glen and Hamil­ton West, let down by un­re­li­able and ex­pen­sive rail ser­vices, by sup­port­ing Labour’s plans to bring our rail­ways back into public own­er­ship.

I will fight to en­sure women af­fected by Tory pen­sion changes get the fi­nan­cial help they need and to scrap the ab­hor­rent Tory rape clause.

As your MP I will al­ways stand up for the many, not the few.

Don’t elect a pale im­i­ta­tion. With one vote for me you can re­ject SNP divi­sion and help to re­place this cruel Tory gov­ern­ment with one that cares about the lives of work­ing peo­ple.

I will stand up for the many, not the few
