On with the Battle! (against the weather...)


The cliché just now would be to say that the race is hotting up for the by-election but after last couple of days of wind and rain somehow doesn't seem very appropriate. Battling your way through the elements you realise why Labour went for a November election. For them its anything to make sure the election is as low key as possible because the less scrutiny of their abysmal record the better as far as they are concerned.

Hasn't stopped us getting out there right enough. Particularly good to have Colin Fox and the others through from Edinburgh to give us a hand and the rain didn't dampen anyone's enthusiasm when it came to knocking on doors.

Also good to speak with Raphie at a meeting in Dennistoun last week. Venue just next to the street where my dad grew up gave it a little personal interest as well. Raphie's insight from the 'belly of the beast' of the banking industry brought home just how outrageous their behaviour has been and how they continue to get away with it. Only two responses when you hear it - one is to shrug your shoulders and ask what can be done - the other is to get angry and to organise to fight back. If its the latter the SSP is for you and you should think of coming along this Saturday to our march for jobs, 12 noon at Springburn shopping centre.
