'You’re all corrupt and should hang your heads in shame’, Iain Gray and the Labour Party get an early return from Glasgow voters at Central Station
‘East Coast Weasel’ Iain Gray is running for Holyrood.
And he is also running away from the people of Scotland!
The British Labour Party in Scotland was forced to cancel an election campaign event at a Glasgow train station, after it was hijacked by rowdy protesters.
Iain Gray had turned at Glasgow Central Station to highlight the discredited airport rail link.
A protestor described Gray as ‘corrupt’ adding that Labour should hang their heads in shame.
Labour is losing Glasgow.
Labour has promised to reinstate the Glasgow Airport Rail Link, if re-elected, after the project was cancelled by the SNP.
The SNP put the health of Glasgow first by building the £842 million pound new Glasgow Southern General Hospital, open 365 days a year, 24/7 and serving 110,000 people.
The Labour Party wanted the white elephant GARL, the 10 minute choo choo train ride.
Chased down the street and cornered in a shop, Iain Gray was forced to talk to protestors.
It was another PR disaster following on from Andy Kerr’s destruction at the hands of the BBC interviewer Gordon Brewer.
Sean Clerkin, spokesman for the protesters, said he wanted to secure a commitment that cuts would not be passed on if Mr Gray became first minister.
"Nine of us went there this morning to ambush Iain Gray to talk to him about massive cuts that are being implemented. He ran away into a cafe and I chased him - we only wanted to talk to him. We don't want Labour to just manage the cuts."
The group followed the Labour leader and his entourage out of the station and into a nearby Subway sandwich shop.
Subway does great sandwiches.
Iain Gray ran away from the people because Iain Gray isn’t a leader of men.
You can see fear and panic in the eyes of Iain Gray and his minders as they fled.
