A RED FACED IAIN GRAY YESTERDAY
(It's maybe the cold wind or the drink)
SCOTTISH Labour Party leader Iain Gray’s campaign for the leadership of the party was indirectly funded by council tax payers, it has been alleged.
It’s claimed local tax payers in East Lothian unknowingly subsidised Labour fund-raising events in Prestonpans. Both Prestonpans Labour Party and Prestonpans Labour Club gave donations to Mr Gray’s leadership campaign and he launched his leadership bid in the club. The taxpayers contributed a SUM OF NEARLY £10,000.
Now SNP councillors have demanded Labour pay back the money. SNP Councillor Paul McLennan discovered the subsidies to Labour when reviewing council-backed community events. “We take this misuse of funds by the Prestonpans Labour Party very seriously, as I’m sure our constituents would,” Mr McLennan said.
It seems that THE LABOUR LEADERSHIP is good at TAKING MONEY THAT THEY SHOULDN'T. Just look at GORDON BROWN!
