There are two types of people in this world, honest and dishonest. We all know the difference between the two. It is the same in politics, the honest people do the job in hand, whether it be local councillor, MSP, or MP, for the benefit of the people who voted for them. These people would not dream of stealing from the people who put them in that position. Then you have the other type, the dishonest ones, only in it for what they can get out of it, do as little as they can for their electorate and quite happy to rip them off for every penny they can get out of them.
Here in Scotland we need not be shocked by the corruption that is going on in Westminster just now with regard to the Labour party, we have been used to it for decades. But with the fact that Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister, Alistair Darling, the Chancellor and half the cabinet as well as a fair number of backbench MP's are ripping off the people of this country no wonder it has shocked the people of England as well as to how corrupt these people are.
Like I said we all know the difference, honest people just would not do what these Westminster MP's are up to. It is the same here with regard to our local councillors, the honest councillors got on with the job of representing their constituents and only claimed what they were due. Like I said in a previous post the dishonest ones, Ronnie Burns, Celia Lawson, Derek MacKay, Mark McMillan and Tommy Williams decided they would rather rip off their constituents by claiming money they were not due.
The Labour party were told about Tommy Williams over ten years ago about him ripping off Glasgow council, the term "Phantom Worker" actually came from them because of his getting paid for a job that he never attended. Mark McMillan opens up a can of worms. Just who was doing the most fraud here? Was it Mark, or his ex-wife Barbara Adams, or was it her mother Irene Adams, ex-MP for Paisley North and now in the Lords as a "Dame". It's a family affair as the song goes!
You will all note the silence on this issue on the "Don't Drink Without A Piece Of Paper" blog below, the local Labour and SNP party's and councillors know about this site and some have commented on other issues. Never before have the SNP in Renfrewshire been so silent on the Labour fraudsters and why are Labour so silent on the SNP fraudsters. We all know why! Only the dishonest would commit fraud, we all know who the dishonest politicians are, if your MP is one of these who are ripping off the system report them to the police - If they were honest they would not have done it in the first place!
