Labour to ‘throw stones’ at SNP in their Lanarkshire ‘glass house’

Sir Keir is to bring his virtual ‘Call Keir‘ (Does Kay Adams know?) event to Rutherglen and Hamilton West. In a cynically opportunistic attempt to take advantage of someone formerly ‘innocent until proven guilty‘ in ‘this country‘, he will do his whiney best to try to present the Scottish Labour Party as the honest alternative.

Some tuning in will not be impressed, remembering this kind of thing, recently in Lanarkshire:

Some may be aware of the long history of Labour corruption and betrayal of voters, described in Professor Tom Devine’s The Strange Death of Labour Scotland:

The first-past-the-post electoral system had long resulted in Labour domination of many local authorities: in 1995 the party governed 20 of the 32 councils in Scotland. Hegemony often grew into self-perpetuating oligarchy, leading to accusations of corruption, croneyism, nepotism and the malign influence of patronage networks. In parts of west-central Scotland, opposition councillors became almost an endangered species as councils began to resemble one-party states in which the important ­decisions were made by Labour groups behind closed doors.

  2. I hope someone in Lanarkshire see these reminders and joins his chat and points them out.

    1. That will not stop Sir Keir. Ms Ferrier is only an Independent MP – formerly with the SNP. He is a Knight of the Realm, Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, a Privy Councillor and, as such, he can do what he pleases – or thinks he can.

      Sir Keir is en grand fromage. I bet he couldn’t find Hamilton West and Rutherglen on a map.

  3. Gift of the gab Tory Starmer. I hope someone can ‘call Keir’ and read out this article. That would be great to hear his response.
    Labour at the helm just doesn’t bear thinking about especally now, luckily they are a million miles from power.
