THE GOOD NEWS FROM ANNABELLE EWING
Q. WHO UPGRADED THE A907 ALLOA-STIRLING ROAD?

Q. WHO BROUGHT BACK THE RAILWAY TO ALLOA?
A. THE SNP. If it hadn’t been for Clackmannanshire Council under the SNP, the Labour Executive would never have moved on it. Some Labour Councillors never voted for it.
Q. WHICH LOCAL AUTHORITY WAS THE FIRST TO INTRODUCE COMPREHENSIVE FREE TRAVEL FOR PENSIONERS AND DISABLED?
A. Clackmannanshire Council under the SNP. It was copied later by the Labour Executive and rolled out across Scotland.
Q. WHO BROUGHT £2 MILLION TO ALLOA UNDER THE TOWN CENTRE REGENERATION SCHEME?

AND NOW FOR THE BAD NEWS!

Brown’s and Banks betrayal is Labour’s shame. Brown gives bankers billions for failure while working people lose the 10p tax band and lose their jobs.
THIS IS NOT WHAT HARD WORKING PEOPLE VOTED FOR!
