The SNP has a track record of missing targets, the biggie is of course health targets for A&E but the incompetence doesn’t just end there, no there is much more failure in other areas to gasp at!
Sturgeon’s crew have missed a manifesto target to build more than 6,000 new socially-rented houses a year.
What has happened Nicola?
Did you appoint the wrong person yet again?
Of course you did, you stuck in a buddy who was a diddy and a crony to fill up the slots, now the chickens are coming home to roost, except they didn’t have a coop because no one was building.
There really is a huge lack of talent in the SNP in the elected.
Imagine those poor chickens standing out in the rain, no roof over their heads; they must kind of feel like working class on the housing ladder right now, soaked right through to the bone.
The Scottish Government was elected in May 2011 on a manifesto which included an "aim to build over 6,000 new socially-rented houses each year".
The key word here is ‘aim’, not a guarantee; you really can’t give those, too busy with your personal agenda to help out the Scots most in need.
After a decent start, credit where credit is due, the trend started to sink downwards, because your crew are really the 9 to 5 commandos then off out after picking up their pay packets.
How could you been as utterly stupid as to appoint Kevin Stewart as Housing Minister?
In a Newsnight interview the guy was so gormless as to need a piece of paper to read off his prepared answers.
Lib Dem MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton said:
"In 2011 SNP promised 30,000 new socially-rented homes. After they won power, they lowered the target to 20,000. No amount of boastful press releases will help families into homes. The Scottish Government needs to be more focused on new rented homes."
Lowering the target, how unprincipled, in fact it stinks.
Conservative housing spokesman Alex Johnstone said:
"Although I welcome the increase in affordable housing, the fact is that the Scottish Government has put affordable housing on a pedestal to the exclusion of other tenures. What we are now seeing is an imbalance in construction that is pulling up the housing ladder from young families and ironically putting greater pressure on the affordable sector. The bottom line is that the ongoing housing crisis will only be solved by building more houses across all tenures and the Scottish Government is failing to deliver."
Just as the arse has fallen out of your 2014 indy campaign, it has also fallen out as you pitiful attempts at Government, the trend is downwards, you have peaked, as to joining the remain campaign, seen the stats, Leave 47%, Remain 41%.
I once cracked out in an article that you couldn’t get anything right and that your miserable career is built on failure.
George Laird right again.
Finally, I notice the major dullard Mhairi Hunter has been mentioning about my appearance as a guest on the Gordon Brewer Big Debate, why don’t you put her up one day?
Scotland needs a laugh!
The impression I got was the less than talented ‘cllr’ was green with envy alongside the rest of your southside gang on twitter, she is so common you know.
People like her should be given a mega bucket of fried chicken and 2 ltr bottle of pepsi and left in a corner; thinking doesn’t sit well with her in my opinion, she is so gormless, what about her for housing minister?
