Motherwell and Wishaw ward change blasted by MP

FULL STORY: Motherwell and Wishaw ward change blasted by MP

Instead of cutting Scotland’s representation in Parliament by ten per cent and gerrymandering a majority, the UK Government should be abolishing the unelected House of Lords where their friends have jobs for life.

Proposals fail to take into account community links. Motherwell and Wishaw – a longstanding and recognised community – would cease to exist. Motherwell itself would be virtually cut in half and separated from Wishaw and surrounding towns.

When peoples’ representation is required in the Brexit process to hold Theresa May to account, it is a complete negation of her responsibilities to focus on manufacturing a Parliamentary majority in future elections.

Instead of ‘jobs for the boys’, we need strong voices standing up for Scotland and ordinary people in our communities – not more voices for the rich and powerful.
