The Midlothian SNP group have responded to the Labour group article yesterday, Midlothian Labour call on SNP to stop playing games.

“It is highly convenient of Labour to point fingers at anyone but themselves as a distraction tactic to their own austerity max budget – voted through with support of the Tory Provost.”

“Whilst Midlothian was rightly angry about cuts to music tuition, Labour was plotting cuts to anti social behaviour teams, our children’s sports activities, school budgets and cutting jobs.”

“The SNP Group worked hard to find a consensus agreement with the Labour group, despite themselves only having access to the Labour budget on the day of the meeting.”

“This is simply smoke and mirrors to hide the enormous, almost 5% increase to Council Tax that will be falling though letter boxes shortly – a tax hike the SNP Group strongly opposed in the Council Chamber.”
