Labour Candidate William Bain flogs a dead horse on knife crime

Dear All

Flogging a dead horse will produce no results.

But that doesn’t stop Labour Candidate William Bain from trying to misrepresent the truth of David Kerr the SNP Candidate's statements.

Labour Candidate Willie Bain and his English run campaign thought by using knife crime, they would be on a winner by using people's fears and pointing the finger at the SNP Candidate and telling them he is to blame for their lot in life.

As part of his arsenal of gimmicks, he has called for a four year sentence for anyone carrying a knife.

Here is his exact quote;

"My plan is simple and will send out a clear message: carry a knife and go to jail”.

He is part correct in his statement, his idea is simple but more than that, it is also illegal and a breach of the Human Rights Act 1998 which guarantees an accused person the right to a fair trial.

In another attempt to get his dead horse back on its feet, he has released official Scottish Government figures to support his position.

But regardless of this, he cannot get past the illegal nature of what he proposes once a person goes to court.

He is effectively stating a person is guilty until he proves himself innocent.

As well as this William Bain is misrepresenting the comments of SNP Candidate David Kerr.

Bain has used part of a quote by David Kerr and twisted it for his own political ends.

David Kerr’s stance on knife crime is that it is up to an independent judge to decide whether or not a person is sent to prison. He has also said that if a person uses a knife then they should expect to go to prison.

To reinforce my point about how William Bain is against a person having an entitlement to a fair trial, he states;

"there is no excuse for carrying a lethal weapon on the streets”.

From his own mouth and by his own hand, he has proven beyond reasonable doubt that he doesn’t care about people’s rights, he has no problem with innocent people being unjustly locked up.

That being the case, it would be a disaster if he were elected to the Glasgow North East seat.

It is the duty of an MP to protect democracy and people’s rights, something William Bain doesn’t care about as he is morally bankrupt.

Did mummy buy Wee Willie a jacket to grow into when he's a big boy?

Dear Anon

I expect the jacket was borrowed but convention dictates that you should have your hands poking out of the sleeves.

Or it could be he is suffering finanical hardship and cannot afford gloves.

Or the third option is that he is as I have previously stated, a crackpot.
