UNISON, Scotland’s largest trade union, has given its backing to Neil Findlay MSP in the contest for the next Scottish Labour leader. This followed a hustings event in Glasgow today (1 November 2014) at the UNISON annual Labour Link Forum.
Members were impressed by the analysis from both Sarah Boyack and Neil Findlay of the challenges facing Scottish Labour and need for a new approach.
UNISON Scotland Labour Link Chair Gordon McKay said:
“Members have been hugely impressed with Neil Findlay since he became an MSP and in particular as Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing. Neil understands that politics as usual isn’t good enough and we believe he offers a fresh approach with a real experience and understanding of the concerns of working people”.
“At today’s meeting Neil Findlay outlined a radical new policy approach that will be welcomed by our members.”
|Just like that....|
|Understatement of the year|
|The MWPs want an MP: The MSPs don't.|
|Retreat, absolutely no doubt.|
|They are at war: Hasn't George got a drinker's nose|
|Not looking good for Labour or the Liberals in Scotland according to this poll|
|He's not really our kind of Labour.|
|What has he done with his life?|
What does he know about what we do with ours?
|Poisoned Chalice if ever there was one.|
You may be sacked by your boss's boss.
|If that isn't love....|
|Otherwise there would be no need for Labour...|
...Oh that's right... there is no need for Labour.
|Trick or Treat...|
Obviously a Trick... or something like that.
|Her tour is sold out...|
and he just sold out.
|Many a true word was spoken in jest.|
|I said you were a joke, not choke!|
