Yesterday saw Glasgow SNP Cllrs elect another non Glaswegian to be its leader, Glasgow SNP is run by outsiders who aren’t born in the city.
The latest outsider is Susan Aitken, she is the new caretaker leader of Glasgow SNP Cllr Group, and she is the loser of the next council election in 2017.
Gordon ‘free dinners’ Matheson just got a walk through.
As well as electing its new ‘leader’ on Glasgow City Council, the now infamous party's deputy Billy McAllister is also remaining in post despite his recent brush with the law.
McAllister plead guilty to threatening a disabled man at a bedroom tax meeting in Glasgow, that ‘rumble in the jungle’ earned him a criminal conviction.
Graeme Hendry, the former caretaker stepped down for family reasons after only two years in the post.
Susan Aitken faced off against west end councillor Kenny McLean for the post, he has expressed interest before in the position but given the way Glasgow SNP works the position again went to a Sturgeon proxy.
The result of renewal and rebirth was overshadowed by the continuation as deputy of Councillor Billy McAllister.
The self style gang busting councilor and one trick pony of the SNP, but in the interests of fairness, there are other one trick ponies in the SNP Group!
McAllister was re-elected unopposed which goes to show that the non Glaswegian cllrs, the outsiders although signed up to ‘fairness, equality and social justice’ that is a sham.
Most SNP cllrs are part time, they hold down full time jobs elsewhere.
The continuation of McAllister in post is a gift for Glasgow Labour Party who outwardly will be running with ‘fake’ outrage, but privately they will be loving him to death for remaining in post!
Shadow Scottish Secretary and Labour Glasgow East MP Margaret Curran is calling for the SNP to take action against McAllister.
With the run in to the referendum it is unlikely the SNP will act, in the SNP you can be expelled for using the word ‘gay’ in a blog post which has nothing to do with homosexuality but still remain a councilor if you get a criminal conviction.
The Scottish National Party isn’t a political party; it was a protest movement which became a political party which then became a clique for a select few.
As to Aitken, she is ex Labour Party.
Gordon ‘free dinners’ Matheson has effectively now been declared the winner of the Glasgow City Council 2017 election by default!
Well done Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, another strategic move on the chess board of politics, pity she doesn’t understand she is playing draughts when everyone else is playing chess!
