Silence from Johann Lamont is Dereliction of Leadership

Commenting on the ongoing controversy surrounding Labour’s candidate selection in Falkirk, Angus MacDonald, SNP MSP for Falkirk East, said: “The people of Falkirk deserve so much better. Time and time again they have been let down by Labour – it is time for a change.

“Local people were first let down by Labour by the behaviour of Eric Joyce, and they have been let down by Labour all over again with their party’s candidate selection scandal.

“This is a hugely serious issue – yet all we have had is silence from Johann Lamont, who is supposed to be leader of Labour’s Scottish Westminster MPs. Unless Ms Lamont gets a grip of this crisis, she is confirming that the shots are all being called by the real Labour bosses in London.

“The people of Falkirk should be able to elect a new MP – there ought to be a by-election, and the sooner the better.”

One Response to Internal Crisis for Labour: Falkirk Deserves Better

  1. Joe Bruce says:

    Labour is trying to have its cake and eat it in the Falkirk Westminster constituency. If Gerry Goldie and May MacIntyre want to continue working for Major Joyce then they should resign from the Labour Party. Better still, if Joyce had any morality then he would step down immediately and go quietly.
