Local Elections

Recommended Posts

SNP are gunning for Glasgow in the local elections with a focus on families in their manifesto.

They're promising:

"additional investment in education, work or training places for 16 to 24-year-olds, a drive to refurbish schools, a guarantee of at least 600 hours of free, flexible nursery education for every three and four-year-old and a commitment to keeping council tax frozen."

They also say they will maintain the roads, clean up the streets and help carers, be committed to a living wasge with no compulsory redundancies.

Of course, Labour have attacked the manifesto, which they say has been hastily drawn.

It was also argued that:

"It calculated the proposed spending by the Nationalists on tackling youth unemployment was £15.9 million, compared to £31.3m earmarked by Labour.

The party also claimed that, despite the SNP claiming it would guarantee jobs and training for 16 to 24-year-olds, every one of its city councillors voted against the measure when Labour proposed the Glasgow Guarantee in February."

I expect we'll see a lot more over the next few weeks and have oceans of leaflets dropping through our doors.
