‘East Coast Weasel’ Labour MSP Iain Gray proposes a Scottish National Police Force, George Laird proposed that idea two months earlier

Dear All

‘East Coast Weasel’ Labour MSP Iain Gray has come up with an idea.

Scotland's eight police forces will be merged to create a single Scottish national police force.

Unfortunately for him, George Laird on the September 4th 2010 was invited to a political meeting and gave that same suggestion.

And at that meeting, I said this should happen to the Fire and Ambulance Service as well.

Iain Gray is a full two months behind George Laird's thinking.

And again, it seems that the ‘East Coast Weasel’ is forced to copy the ideas of others because he doesn’t have any himself.

Recently, during the Oban Labour Conference he floated the idea of a 5% cut in salary of the First Minister if he wins power in the Holyrood 2011 election. That idea was copied from the Tory/Lib Dem Coalition Government.

Gray is getting carried away with himself as another pronouncement by him was that he was “ready to serve”.

I will have a smoked sausage supper, two pickles and a can of irn brn, salt and vinegar on the supper thanks.

If the best that Iain Gray can do is copy others; then it is hardly a case for attaining the position of First Minister.

Gray also announced he would hire 1,000 more teachers to help children who cannot read or count.

The Scottish Government don’t hire teachers; this is done through Councils, so the pledge is nonsense. Labour controlled Glasgow City Council is sacking teachers by closing schools.

Another piece of fluff is the guarantee an apprenticeship post for anyone who wanted it but there are ‘qualifying conditions’.

Labour claimed that many of the new policies were either cost neutral or relatively inexpensive, but opponents challenged Gray to explain how he plans to pay for his platform.

His opponents must be mad, Gray doesn't know the answers, he just gobs off hoping to make a hit.

In the central policy section of the speech, he said:

"I believe that the time has come for a Scottish national police force, but with strengthened local accountability for local policing. We can save headquarter costs and protect front-line services."

It seems that George Laird ideas yet again are becoming very popular probably because they are ideas of substance which make real differences to the lives of ordinary Scots. His rationale is pretty much what I said at a political meeting two months ago.

Yours sincerely
