SCOTTISH SECRETARY FOR LABOUR PROMOTION-MURPHY-SLAMMED OVER HYPOCRISY ON JOBS



 MURPHY FAILED TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT GLASGOW LOSING STUDENT LOANS COMPANY JOBS

Glasgow SNP MSP Bill Kidd has slammed Jim Murphy's comments on unemployment as 'hypocrisy' following revelations that the Scotland Office did nothing to stop Student Loans Company jobs being lost in Glasgow and moving to Darlington. 
Responding to the unemployment figures Jim Murphy claimed that "the British Government will work night and day to help people back into work and create the jobs of the future".

Yet a Freedom of Information request has shown that he did nothing to stop or avert the Student Loans Company (SLC) plans to axe up to 150 jobs from the company's sites in Glasgow and Hillington, in Renfrewshire. It was also reported that another 45 posts would be moved from Hillington to Darlington.

Commenting Mr Kidd said:  "Jim Murphy’s lack of action on Scottish jobs in Glasgow just exposes how his department is nothing but a tax payer subsidised campaign office for Labour. That money should be used to create jobs and support Scotland, not to talk it down.  "The fact he failed to even act to save Scottish jobs raises serious questions about how he is employing his time as Scottish Secretary. To say nothing about jobs being lost to Scotland exposes the hypocrisy of his statement on unemployment.  "Instead of saving people's jobs in Scotland the only one job he is really concerned about is his own. That is why he spends so much time attacking the SNP despite saying he would ignore us! His fixation is causing serious harm to Scotland and his constituents who he is failing to represent."

As said many times on this Blog, MR MURPHY would do well to remember he is Scotland's man in the Cabinet and is supposed to fight for Scottish interests within Government, not be some sort of POLITICAL COMMISAR FOR THE LABOUR PARTY IN SCOTLAND!

Aha, this will be part of the secret scheme to repatriate as many jobs as possible south of the border prior to Scots independence.

Banned, Hopefully. I can think of many things they can take with them and 'the skull' is one of them.

About bloody time the SNP fought back. Go on Youtube and search UK election 2010 and the most vids are from the BNP - some from all the other parties - none from the SNP. What - are they fucking comatose?

Wake the fuck up!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Scunnert, I'm in full agreement. I don't know what the fuck is wrong with them. Don't they know there's an election coming?

SNP too busy to campaign said...

I think the SNP are too busy courting the Asian vote, covering up abuse scandals, desecrating Scotland with 600 pylons at 300 feet tall or chasing the mirage of climate change and 'inedependence in Europe' to have much time for anything else really.

blimey Labour eh? thick as mince and like our friend above racist too.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Too busy, yes the Scottish Government has lots of things to do. Amongst them are the things you include. But I'll tell you one thing they have done a hell of a lot more in 2 years than Labour did since the inception of the Parliament.

Anonymous, I wouldn't disagree but like every one who takes their time to comment on this blog, their comment is welcomed.

SNP too...... said...

Well I've never voted Labour. Lifelong SNP voter actually. Even canvassed when I was younger. But I'm now a non voter as they have nothing to offer me. As has any party. All troughing liars and self serving hypocrites.
Why does it always come down to 'racist' by the way whenever someone pokes their head above the parapet ? Do you really think we're all racists ?
And anyway 'Asian' is an ethnic grouping rather than a race. It covers many different races.

Dark Lochnagar said...

SNP too. You have a point about the racist remark, not at all offensive in my estimation. Thing is you have to choose the least hypocritical part and that is the SNP, certainly in Scotland. They are the only ones trying to do something for Scotland. Don't NOT vote that would be a shame. Use it as a protest if you will but use it. It is your god given right. In some countries they are dying, literally, to get a vote. You let them down if you don't use yours.

SNP too.. said...

All the parties are hypocritical DL. The biggest threat to the establishment is if no one voted. They would realise the game was up and do something to change things. Alternatively I may vote for a small single issue candidate. But don't vote for any main party. It only encourages them. The SNP had an open door to a referendum on independence with Wendy's 'bring it on' outburst but have fudged the issue with 'national conversations' etc. They're in power for a short time ( they won't be allowed to win again (ever).The establishment shit themselves but have now slammed the door firmly shut for a generation. MSM back inline, Wendy gone, another fudd in charge, skull mobilised to Scotland and the ballot boxes ready to be stuffed with fake postal votes. And to cap it all they even have the SNP covering up a corruption scandal not of their making in the first place.

Dark Lochnagar said...

SNP too, I'd certainly go along with you on the last point about the corruption scandal, if they're not very careful it could blow up in their face. I'm waiting to see if the MSM prints anything this Sunday.
I think they're making sure that the time is right for a vote and hoping that the Tories get in. If they had gone for a vote and lost it, it would have been another 20 years before we had the chance again. I don't agree at all with all the SNP's policies, but I believe that it is our best chance to get our own Government by PR if possible and fight amongst ourselves for the direction we want to go. That way there is no dubiety or blaming the English, it's down to us. I'm glad at least you are using your vote.

SNP too... said...

Well we'll never know how the vote would have gone now.
It's all water under the bridge now anyway. The chance has gone and will never resurface. Labour are now back on message so the bill will never see the light of day.

Dark Lochnagar said...

SNP too, I hope we will, but only time will tell.

SNP too... said...

Well hopefully it's all false and little children aren't really being buggered while the SNP shut down the media and stop reporters from trying to find out the truth.
Sleep well DL.

Dark Lochnagar said...

SNP too. I did Thanks.

Survival group against God?? LOL. Good luck with that. Truth is, no one knows the exact time this will happen except the man upstairs, however, I firmly believe that there are people placed here by God that post the warning signs and it's up to you to take heed.
