Steven Purcell told 'it's too soon'.

'It's too soon Steven, piss off for another year or so'.

Disgraced ex leader of Glasgow City Council Steven Purcell, (google 'Steven Purcell news'), has been blocked from leeching from the public purse by Iain Gray.

He was offered a job as newly elected list MSP Anne McTaggart's assistant. Purcell currently works without a salary for Glasgow Labour MP John Robertson. It is understood that Gray stepped in to prevent the controversial decision being finalised.

Also, Anne McTaggart is still hanging on to her councillor position whilst performing her duties in the Scottish Paliament. Rumour has it that Labour is terrified of losing her council seat if she resigns her post and triggers a council by election.

Oink Oink etc etc

Personally speaking, by the looks of her, I would say that she will not give up her councillor job as it means she can gorge herself at two public troughs.

Scottish Labour really is a circle jerk of cretins who think they are entitled to the trappings of power.

Councillor Margaret McDougall, MSP.

'I'm just the same as all the rest.'

The following has been taken from here. Her details can be found here.

A North Ayrshire Labour councillor who claimed public money for attending a memorial to the dead of two World Wars has been elected as an MSP.

As revealed by the3towns last week, Margaret McDougall, who represents Kilwinning, was surprisingly elected from the number-3 position on Labour’s West of Scotland Regional List. Previously, Labour had never been entitled to ‘Additional Members’ from the Regional List due to its performance in winning most of the constituencies in the area. However, at last week’s election the SNP took six of the ten West of Scotland constituencies, which meant the Proportional Representation ‘second’ vote provided Labour with three additional Regional members.

In addition to charging the public purse for attending an Armistice Parade, Mrs McDougall also submitted a claim in relation to what she described on her Allowances Form as a “Meeting with MEP”. However, the supposed meeting with a Member of the European Parliament took place on May 12, 2009 – after the European Parliament had been dissolved ahead of the European Election on June 4, which meant there were no MEPs. What Cllr McDougall had actually attended, and which she charged to the public purse, was a Labour Party campaign activity in support of its European Parliament candidates.

In the last full year for which figures are available – 2009/2010 - Margaret McDougall claimed allowances totalling £857.30, up 35-percent on her charge to the public purse from the previous twelve-months.

Against a backdrop of cuts to local services, Cllr McDougall claimed public money for attending events such as the Kilwinning Flower Show, a dinner at the Gailes Hotel, a primary school Christmas Fayre, the switching-on of Christmas lights, the crowning of the Segdoune Queen, the Kilwinning Carnival, the Whitehirst Park Gala Day, a ‘political meeting’ in Ardrossan, a ‘weight lift presentation’, a ‘parade’, another switching-on of Christmas lights, the Woodwynd Centre Christmas Fayre, the Blacklands Community Centre Christmas Night, and the Landward Christmas Dinner.

the3towns understands the Labour Party will insist Margaret McDougall does not resign as a North Ayrshire councillor, despite her new duties and responsibilities as a Member of the Scottish Parliament. Labour is fearful it would lose a by-election if Mrs McDougall stood down.

Oink, oink, oink. Typical Scottish Labour.

Farewell to the LPUK

"Psst! Wanna buy London Bridge?"

It's a shame but, I suppose, no surprise.

I've been attacking those who trough, those who are hungry for power and the little empire builders ever since I started this blog over two years ago. I see no difference here.

I was a member of the LPUK for a year. It seemed like a breathe of fresh air and I liked what I heard. I attended meetings, met some decent people. They talked the talk.

Soon, the year had passed and it was time to renew my membership. I didn't.

Too much talk and too little action.

Fast forward to today and it seems that at the centre of the party, elected leader at November's AGM, is a crook and con man. Caught with his fingers in the till. I've met him, only the once at a meet up in Edinburgh. He seemed decent enough.

Anyway, to catch up with all the shenanigans, read this.

I say I'm not surprised, but I am disappointed. It turns out that all politicians and would be politicians are pretty much the same. All in it for themselves, lining their own pockets.

So, as far as I am concerned it's goodbye to the LPUK and all political parties. I want nothing to do with any of you. I still support Libertarian principles.

Whoever really is in control of the LPUK must get the police involved. That's a given.

I hope the people of Clevedon Walton know what type of councillor they have representing them. I would watch his expenses very carefully.

What a complete cunt.

The Scottish Youth Parliament

Gaelic for 'do as you are told'.

Nothing fills me more with despair than organisations that declare themselves self proclaimed spokespersons for a huge chunk of society. From Mumsnet to the subject of my post, my heart sinks at their very mention.
The Scottish Youth Parliament deserve a special place in my hall of contempt. Allegedly set up, with charity status, to give the youth of Scotland a 'national voice' it soaks up plenty of oLinkur money a year in order to train the political class of the future.

As far as I am concerned, anyone who chooses to climb the political ladder as a career choice should automatically be forbidden from doing so. There is nothing wrong with having a healthy interest in politics, of course not. Since the days of Maggie Thatcher kicking Scargill in the nuts, I've been fascinated by politics. But I don't want to be a politician.

These youngsters have declared, consciously or not, that they have the desire to rule over others. In my world, they would be dragged away and 'not fit for office' tattooed on their forehead.

But, on a brighter note, it's good to see that they are being well trained in the political art.

It's voting time in Scotland.

Couldn't have put it better myself. For those of you that are 'activists' and vote Labour, fair enough. Not much point trying to change your mind.
For those of you that vote Labour because your Dad's Dad used to live next door to a miner and you've always voted labour, have a look around and ask yourself,

"What has Labour really done for us?"

In Scotland, this is real Labour. Watch what decades of Labour rules has done to our country here.

I'm not going to tell you who to vote for. As far as I am concerned they are all cunts.

It's just that some are more cunty than others.
