From SNP Media today:
Anas Sarwar’s credibility as leader has been fatally undermined after a senior Labour MP blurted out on air that Labour in Scotland was working hand-in-glove with the Tories – in complete contrast to a commitment he made just before the local government elections.
Speaking on BBC’s Politics Live today on Labour’s position on working with the SNP, Labour MP Siobhain McDonagh said: ”Only last week, we suspended two Labour councillors in Edinburgh because they weren’t prepared to vote for the Tories instead of the SNP.”
Scottish Labour famously kicked out nine councillors in Aberdeen who worked with the Tories to form an administration. The comments from Siobhain McDonagh today confirm Labour is now disciplining members for voting against the Tories.
This revelation comes after the Daily Record revealed that Anas Sarwar is attempting to time limit the SNP-Labour deal agreed in Dumfries and Galloway, protecting locals from a Tory administration – despite the Labour leader and deputy of the council group pointing out there was no time limit on the deal.
McDonagh seemed proud of this achievement; to vote with Tory right-wingers against the SNP.
