Margaret Curran is the Labour MP for Glasgow East and also the shadow Secretary of State for Scotland.
Margaret Curran represents Glasgow East, one of the most, if not the most impoverished area of Scotland and certainly in Glasgow. Glasgow East has some of the worst statistics in Western Europe for child poverty, health, crime, alcohol and drug abuse and long-term unemployment which is also generational. Margaret Curran is one of the leading campaigners for Better Together and wants people in her constituency and all over Scotland to vote no.
Margaret Curran has also indicated her support for abolishing the Barnett formula, which gives Scots almost £1,200 per head more public spending than the UK average, and replacing it with a system based on need. Margaret Curran wants to make Scots poorer; she wants to make her already desperate constituents more desperate so that they can be as poor as their comrades in other Labour heartlands throughout the UK.
Margaret Curran believes that devolution has not worked or made things better when we all know that devolution and the current government are the only thing that has kept services in place and local authority workers in employment.
In her speech at the Scottish (branch) Labour Party Conference Margaret Curran said that ‘for too long now, Scotland has needed a bigger voice in the world. I say – it’s time’. But she wants you to vote NO to Scottish self-determination and independence. According to Margaret Curran ‘If we want a better, fairer Scotland, the way to achieve it is by changing the government – in Edinburgh’. Margaret Curran is a huge part of the Westminster problem that we all have.
Margaret talks about ‘ The BBC – founded by a Scot. The Bank of England – founded by a Scot’. She does this while telling you that you have no right to either if you choose to vote for an Independent Scotland, a better, fairer Scotland. Margaret Curran described Tory welfare cuts as ‘brutal’ which will cause ‘misery for families across Scotland’ – yet Margaret Curran Labour MP for Glasgow East would prefer you have to suffer a Tory government in Scotland rather than self-government with independence.”
Margaret Curran MP is a disgrace as a representative of the people. For Margaret to call herself a Labour MP must have members turning in their graves as her views are more Tory than most of the Tories. Margaret Curran is worried about one thing and one thing only, her job in Westminster. If you vote yes then people like Margaret Curran can no longer tell you what is best for you while presiding over some of the most poverty-stricken areas of Scotland, areas that Labour have failed to improve in a 100 years. If you vote yes then you can stop people like Margaret Curran milking the system which keeps her wealthy and you down, you can stop people like Margaret Curran from taking you for granted. It is not in the interests of the Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland for your education, your health, your life choices to get better because you will see her and them for what they are. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing and we now have a chance to remove those boils from our country once and for all. We do this by voting yes and then by ensuring that people like Margaret Curran, so-called Labour MP Glasgow East, never again get to mis-represent the people of Scotland to ensure their own health and financial wellbeing at your expense.
