Resignations at GCC just the tip of the iceberg
James Dornan MSP has said that the Labour party at Glasgow City Council’s on-going disintegration just hours before a vote on the council budget marks the beginning of the end of their control of Scotland’s biggest city.
Stephen Dornan’s decision to leave his Labour party post(Thursday) comes less than 24 hours after a formerly Labour stalwart councillor, Anne Marie Millar, resigned, saying she felt excluded from Labour’s ‘inner circle’.
Mr Dornan, MSP for Cathcart, (no relation to Councillor Stephen Dornan) said: “This is just the tip of the iceberg; the Labour Party is in meltdown in Glasgow.
“Irrespective of whether or not Labour squeeze through their budget in Glasgow City Chambers today the fact that former Labour stalwarts are leaving the party is indicative of just what a sorry state it is in.
“With the council elections less than three short months away the people of Glasgow will have the chance to vote for the SNP and put in place a council that will truly match their aspirations for their city."
