Lesley@lesmit· posted the above sob story letter pleading for votes in the Airdrie & Shotts by-election on the 13th May 2021 and commented:
Yo @ScottishLabour, sending a letter from an 80 year old widow asking for my vote ain’t it. This is absolutely weird behaviour and desperate.
How did it go in the 2019 General Election?
And the former SNP who walked away when ‘you needed your MP most?’ He was based in London in the UK Parliament for you and now he’s representing roughly the same area in the Scottish Parliament where the pandemic response ‘you needed‘ is run from. So not just sickly but nonsensical.
And John Smith cared about you? He was thinking of greater things than that – leadership.
Scottish Labour have a thing about trying to make voters sob. If it’s not wee girls dying in hospital, it’s the elderly supposedly dying because of hospital discharges. Facts don’t matter, just moisture.
