    Labour Manifesto- for the many not the few

      Britain is the fifth richest country in the world. But that means little when many people don’t share in that wealth. Many feel the system is rigged against them. And this manifesto sets out exactly what can be done about it.

    The beaten are not always defeated

    “The beaten are not always defeated” There's no positive spin to put on the council election results, locally and nationally. And the usual period of reflection is denied us as we ready ourselves for the General Election. We want to thank all our candidates and our party members for all the work they put in – an important part of our local democracy. Congratulations to Cammy Day on being elected Labour Group leader and to Gordon Munro and Marion Donaldson – all three of you will continue to serve our community well. Commiserations to Heather Pugh, James Dalgleish and Nick Gardner - other opportunities will present themselves.

    Brexit and Independence two sides of the same coin.

                        Scottish Labour rejects a narrow nationalist view of the world. Nationalism, an ideology on the rise the world over, is about breaking apart and creating division. Brexit and independence: two sides of the same coin.

    Our Vision For Local Government

    This is the speech delivered by Alex Rowley, deputy leader of Scottish Labour, as the party launched its “vision” for local government in the run-up to council elections in May.  "Today we are publishing our vision for local government in Scotland. Strong local councils accountable to local people putting those people and communities at the heart of everything they do. This document is not a list of commitments of what Labour councils will do. That is something that local Labour parties in each local authority area will set out in their own local manifestoes in the coming weeks. But by publishing a national vision of local government, we want to use these next few months in the lead up to the local council elections to encourage a discussion across Scotland about public services. What kind of public services do we want to have in our local communities?  What should be the role of local councils in planning, paying for and providing local services?  How effective are those services at the moment in meeting the growing needs and demands of 21st Century Scotland? What is the strategic role of local councils in setting priorities and driving the local and regional economies of Scotland?"
