‘East Coast Weasel’ Iain Gray launches Labour's election campaign with fighting talk, he will surrender to Tories immediately if elected FM













Dear All

I don’t like ‘bitch talk’, and it gets my goat when the ‘East Coast Weasel’ Labour MSP Iain Gray does it.

Iain Gray is portrayed in the Scottish media as a Scottish Labour Leader, this is a falsehood.

The leader of the Labour Party in Scotland is Ed Miliband, his constituency isn’t in Scotland; it is in Doncaster North.

Iain Gray is only leader of the Labour MSPs in the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood.

That’s it, his command is 45 MSPs.

As usual The Labour Party is kicking off the party's election campaign with the message to voters:

"We are ready to work hard for you again."

You can be pretty sure that can be taken with a pinch of salt.

On the eve of the 100-day countdown to the parliamentary election on May 5, the Labour Party wants to make the pitch that the party would fight to regain the trust of those who left Labour in the 2007 vote.

In Labour Councils, the trust already has been violated as Labour in places like Glasgow prepared to sack people, impose pay freezes and make people work longer hours for the same salary.

Is that regaining trust?

Screwing people over!

In the two terms that Labour held Holyrood, Council tax people pay went up by 60%.

For the last 4 years Council taxes has been frozen and guess what, Labour hasn’t been in power.

The ‘East Coast Weasel’ says that Labour will publish plans for jobs and growth would see Scotland "walk tall" again.

By sacking public sector workers?

The Iain Gray rhetoric is surprising predictable.

He said:
"Scots worried about their jobs deserve a government that will get our country back to work again”.

Labour crashed the economy!"Parents and teachers deserve better than more broken promises from politicians”.

Labour has a school’s closure programme in Glasgow! "Older people deserve better as they struggle with soaring fuel bills and worry about their care”.

This isn’t a promise, it is patronising crap."And families working long hours to make ends meet deserve a government that works for them”.

Labour is cutting pay and conditions for the vulnerable and low paid."Between now and polling day I will be out knocking on doors, talking to people about their concerns, listening, learning and understanding”.

Listening, learning and understanding, can he explain why he didn’t bother before?
"We start the next 100 days with momentum but no complacency. Labour is taking nothing for granted and will be fighting for every vote to win the trust of Scots again”.

If people stand back and remember the past, it wasn’t the good old days; the only people enjoying themselves were connected to the Labour Party.

They were getting, jobs and contracts in places like the City of Glasgow run by a Labour Council of shame.

"To those who left Labour four years ago but still stand for Labour's values, I say this: we learnt, we listened and we are ready to work hard for you again."

Are they ready to see people sacked, are they ready to see services cut, and are they ready to see public money funnelled to the Labour Party via Labour donors who get rich on Council contracts?

If the people of Scotland want to continue moving forward, then they need to stay the course with the current Government.

Because one thing we do know, the ‘East Coast Weasel’ Iain Gray will roll over and bend over backwards taking ‘English’ orders from both the Tories and London Labour.

Yours sincerely

I wouldna be sae sure Mr Mxyzptlk. Will all those Lib Dems be voting for the Tory Lib Dem Coalition or The Labour Lib Dem Coalition.

Labour might do well because the Daily Retard and the PravdaBBC spout endless propaganda on their behalf, but theres all to play for. Not many seats are likely to change hands in the Central belt Soviet, but those Lib Dems are in Rural parts. Will they vote for the Lairds or the Labour Maffia or for their country?

Iain Gray would be a disaster as First Minister, we need better, much better, sadly real talent doesn't stop at Holyrood, they take the train to Westminster.
