Alex, like you I am not, and never have been, a member of any political party. The problems with the economy was as a direct result of the banking crisis in the USA, full stop. Or do you believe that Gordon Brown was also the leader of Eire, Greece, Portugal, Iceland, Germany, Spain and the many other countries that have had to introduce fiscal measures to fix their enconomies.

It might take a wee while for things to settle down but it's good to see 'new blood' in at the top again; not saying that the SNP is the 'cure all' but it's a start, and good riddance to those Labour idiots who just wanted everything for themselves! Just hope this SNP crowd will do the right thing and help not only Glasgow, but Scotia in general to get back to the bonnie land I once knew again.

God Bless

Its long overdue for Glasgow to rid itself of Labour, no other party can be blamed for any of its ills
I didn't vote SNP, for I dont want some of the things they want, Independance is the main one
Council tax freeze, free prescriptions,all great things but will it come back to haunt us, if the figures dont stack up

Lets see if SNP can rid me of my doubts
It seems Labour has joined Tories in not being too welcome in Scotland, for now

Bye for now, norrie

Dead on Norrie.
However,what's up with the people in Springburn?do they not vote or what?They had that rascal of a Seaker for years doing nothing except for himself.The place has been destroyed and they still return the same representative.Talk about goin' to hell in a handcart.At least wee Eck and his party might have tried to do something for the people.

mad.gif biggrin.gif At long last we have a Government in Scotland that cares about the people of our great country. As far as I am concerned I am beeling mad. Yet again BOUNDARY changes Which, I am sure like me, few of our fellow citizens new about, means that I have a Labour MSP whereas if they had left well alone I would have that superlative JOHN MASON, as my MSP. Remember him at a By - election a few years ago in Glasgow East for the that place in London, England ? Eh? The person who thought that the result in Shettleston was a bit of a surprise obviously does not live in or near the constituency or they would know the work that John Mason, a devout Christian, put into his work as an MP. Back to boundary changes where I live in Springboig we have been in the last 30+ years, Bothwell Constituency, Shettleston Constituency, Baillieston Constituency and now Glasgow East Constituency all for Westminster. Local Authority, Lanarkshire County Council, and I think ( 9th ) District council, Baillieston ( Strathclyde Regional Council ) and various districts surrounding us for the City Council. Each time there has been a change we have never had any notice let alone input about the changes. We now have Margaret Curran as our MP and she showed her true self as an MSP where words nearly fail me to desribe what a selfcentred person she was/is. I would have loved to be represented by my fellow Christian John Mason but some nameless person somewhere made sure that could not be the case. As for the overall result for Scotland it could only, be bettered if we had even a few more SNP MSP's - especially one for Provan. A GREAAAT result for us all and God bless every MSP who truly cares about our ancient Nation. biggrin.gif

Grampar, a few years ago I and some of my neighbours had problems with trees almost growing in to our windows and the Council kept putting us off about trimming them back.
I emailed John Mason who was a Councillor for our area at the time. He came out to see the problem himself, looked at the trees around our area and within a few weeks they were cut back.

I found him very approachable which is one of the reasons I voted for him and he is well known as a hard worker.

If Labour can't hold places like Shettleston then its time to have a serious look not just at their policies but maybe even their candidates.
Maybe tonight a few Labour people will feel what its like to be jobless.

Aye but they won't know how bad it is to be un-employed with the big handouts they get when un-elected.
Their Redundancy money should be paid the same as the ordinary working person. After being employed for at least two years they get two weeks pay for every year in the job.
But being MPs / MSPs they make their own rules for bigger payouts.

it's a fiddle, I went to the Whiteinch Poll Booth expecting to see Pauline Mc Neils name who I wanted to vote for, and suddenly she isn't the person for here added to that I'm pretty sure the form I saw and used had Bill Kidd in there as Labour. Why on earth would anyone vote SNP otherwise unless it was a fiddle. Bugger this I'm moving to Engalnd or further afield. I know that the form I ticked had Bill Kidd on it as the labour candidate. How else would SNP have won in Glasgow?

Seems you lot voted the loony's in and now you will suffer from the loony's in charge of the Asylum. I've voted Pauline McNeil for years, but suddenly she wasn't on the list for me.

I have been in Australia for 43years. I am still not a Citizen. I don't think I have the right to comment but who can keep a Glaswegian quiet!! My first and last vote in Scotland was for the SNP. That was back in 1965 as I had just turned 21 that was the voting age then... and I was a Ban the Bomber and a Rebel without a Clue. I say Good onya Glasgow and Scotland .. GO FOR IT !! What is it that is said It is better to have tried and made a hash of it (as those in charge seem to do anyway) then never to have tried at all. Good Luck Glasgow xxxxxxx
