  SNP or Labour - what's the difference?
Scotsman Posted 3rd Sep 2011, 12:03pm
  Me too Melody and I see that Labour are busy trying to sift out all the deadwood from the city chambers as they are now getting ready for the local council elections next year. I hear that they are running scared and want to get rid of all the freeloaders who have been sitting back doing nothing for the city for all these years.... makes me wonder though whether there will be any left to stay and fight for their cosy positions!!

  Martin, to my mind that lot were needing cleared out of The Chambers for a long time now.

Anything would be an improvement to what we became accustomed to in recent years.

How the SNP have set their sights on taking Glasgow City Council
22 May 2011

According to the tour guides at Glasgow City Chambers, the most unusual visitors since Queen Victoria opened the building in 1888 have been the Cybermen.

A pair of the metal killing machines were filmed for a recent Doctor Who episode clanking down the Carrara marble staircase that transforms the centre of the place into a light-filled grotto inspired by the Italian Renaissance.

These days the mahogany-lined rooms and tiled halls running off the main atrium echo with reports of an even more unlikely alien invasion: the SNP aim to touch down in George Square.

Once regarded as the Kremlin on the Clyde, Labour’s impregnable bastion in the west of Scotland is facing its first credible threat from the Nationalists, thanks to the SNP’s spectacular success in the Holyrood election.

Beyond the kudos of running the biggest council in Scotland, the SNP – if successful – would displace Labour in their heartland, and reach a vital staging post towards independence. ...

  It was widely reported that the Scottish Government offered to mediate in the Jaconelli case, but were turned down. Alex Salmond has expressed his opinions on this latest matter. Do you wish him to assume dictatorial rights ? That would set a dangerous precedent, don´t you think ?

Are you a supporter of the Jaconellis or the Accord Centre or both ? You do not seem to be an SNP supporter but there again, how can you be a Labour man ?

  Pity he never gave the same support to Mrs Jaconelli.

  Alex Salmond, First Minister, is looking to capitalise on the SNP electoral success in Glasgow to target next year's local council elections, where he wants to see the SNP take control of Glasgow City Council for the first time in history. He was out and about in Glasgow yesterday, where he visited Dalmarnock to show support for local people against the demolition of the Accord Centre to make way for a Commonwealth Games development. Mr Salmond believes that recent events in Dalmarnock, site of the athletes' village for Glasgow 2014, are damaging the reputation of the event.

Salmond throws down the gauntlet in Glasgow
18 May 2011

Alex Salmond has thrown down the gauntlet to Labour in its Glasgow heartland by staking his claim to control the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

As Mr Salmond prepared to be elected as First Minister today, he fired the first shot in what will be a year-long SNP campaign to wrest control of the city’s council from the Labour Party.

Eyebrows were raised yesterday after Mr Salmond, during a visit to the city, took the unusual step of speaking out against plans to demolish a local authority care centre to make way for a Commonwealth Games development. ...
