‘East Coast Weasel’ Labour MSP Iain Gray sinks to a new personal low as he uses the death of Reamonn Gormley to try and get into Bute House as FM

Dear All

Elections are like Xmas, we all know they are coming round and therefore we prepare for it accordingly, getting the decorations and Xmas lights out of the cupboard.

‘East Coast Weasel’ Labour MSP Iain Gray is using one of the Labour Party’s standard ‘decorations.’

Using a victim of crime in this case Reamonn Gormley to try and prop him into Bute House as First Minister.

He is going with the Labour Party’s phoney knife crime con, this has been used previously in William Bain’s Glasgow North East Campaign and post election was killed off.

People conned job done.

The ‘East Coast Weasel’ Iain Gray has urged the Scottish Government to take greater action to tackle knife crime.

Crime is at a 32 year low under the current Scottish Government.

This isn’t a comfort however to the family of Reamonn Gormley, for them nothing can take away how they must be feeling.

Gray said recent tragedies including the deaths of teenagers Reamonn Gormley in Blantyre and Dale Bennett in Gorebridge illustrated the public's desire for tougher measures.

Is he really so lacking in vision that the best he can come up with is ‘tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime.’

It has been done to death; move on Gray, the new model is ‘smart on crime.’

During First Minister's Questions in Holyrood, Mr Gray called on the Government to "listen to those people".

He said:

"Two thousand people marched on the streets of Blantyre demanding action on knife crime”.

2,000 people marched in memory of Reamonn Gormley and to try and hijack this for politicial ends is utterly contemptible.

Gray added:

"The murder of Reamonn Gormley shocked his community and appalled the country. Justice of the Peace Caroline Johnstone has even stepped down from the bench to campaign for mandatory jail sentences for knife carrying."

What the Labour Party is trying to is interfere with an independent judiciary which is illegal.

In the recent Crime Bill that went through Holyrood, the Labour Party put forward an amendment to alter the wording of the Bill, however they realised that they couldn’t make the Bill legally incompetent.

The Labour Party after all its rhetoric backed off.

Reamonn Gormley and his family deserve better than being used to try and get someone as false and shambolic as Iain Gray into power.

The Labour Party is really beneath contempt in how they use victims of misfortune for political campaigning.

Iain Gray is really nasty little man in all senses of those words.

I speak personally as a victim of knife crime who almost died.

Yours sincerely
