1/ Let me remind you again, Douglas. We have been a minority SNP admin (9/26) for 7 months. This was after over a year of the previous Tory admin fighting like cats in a sack for over a year, packing it in then faffing around for several weeks trying to......
2/ make up again, to no avail. Several wks during which we had made it abundantly clear we were ready to step in. Due to the difficult financial situation in Moray, Audit Scotland requested that cross party working must take place to address this years budget
3/ As a result, the group leaders of each party and ind groups have been meeting at least weekly discussing the budget, inc the Tories. If the Tories had an alternative to the awful cuts we’ve had to make they had every opportunity, and there was an
4/ expectation of them to share them with the other group leaders for consideration. They had nothing.
5/ This is your Tory austerity, Douglas. What did you think it was going to look like? I’m just surprised that you’re surprised it’s hitting here. But let’s not forget the failure of prev admins at Moray Council to make hard decisions, admins you were on.
6/ Your party in Holyrood desperate to cut Scot budget by £0.5bn. We have no magic money tree. You voted to cut English LA’s by 28%! The hypocrisy and lack of self awareness is appalling here!
7/ Why don’t you tell ppl about the fact that our MC reserves were over £20m a few years ago. They were spent instead of making change. Why didn’t you propose restructure of management if you’re convinced it’s required? We’ll do what you failed to for years!
8/ and last but not least.. The Tories didn’t just lose one member if their group last year, but two! One leaving, describing them as “right wing extremists”, we all know who they were referring to, the other because, well, he didn’t like any of you!
