Oh dear! It seems that SNP's Renfrewshire Labour style backstabbing and infighting has spread to South Lanarkshire concerning the councillor John McNamee.
How I and many other ex-SNP members here will recognise the same pattern of accusations against a fellow councillor. Did this councillor indulge in "inappropriate behaviour" at a social function? If that is the case where is the complaints in the press by other parties or persons that attended the event.
So the SNP were initiating disciplinary procedings against this councillor over concerns about his expense claims. How hypocritical of this party and what a load of drivel. If they had any concerns and evidence about this councillor then they should have reported him to the police not the party. Strange how we have the situation here in Renfrewshire of the SNP councillors Derek Mackay and Celia Lawson who have actually been reported to the Procurator Fiscal for fraud and councillor Lorraine Cameron reported to the police with no investigation or disciplinary procedings by the SNP. The silence from Labour on this is deafening but then again they are in the same boat!
The fact is people the SNP are just a corrupt as the Labour party. Another SNP councillor here in Renfrewshire George Adam is a crook and the party know this. This man ripped off the banks of hundreds of thousands of pounds, ripped off St Mirren FC and Renfrewshire Council for thousands, and others, and was not allowed to be vetted as a candidate as a result. The only reason he was not prosecuted by the banks is they did not want you to know how easy it was for them to be scammed. This man only got selected because they had no one left after all the decent people left the party because of what was going on here in Renfrewshire. This man should not be a councillor and the party know it!
SNP is not interested in corrupt councillors, it seems to be that they are only interested if it is members of a council group who report the fraud or misconduct - if you were a normal member, like myself, who report members of a group they ignore your concerns, discipline you for calling the guilty scum for what they are doing and throw you out of the party. The SNP is as bad as the other parties - you find out the hard way!
