A publicity leaflet for the SNP's Westminster parliamentry candidate came through the Gurnmesiter's letterbox recently. Extolling the electorate to put ex-policeman John Finnie 'on the Westminster beat'. Now regulars will know that the Gurnmeister is an SNP supporter and cannot seriously envisage voting for any other party in the future. However, John Finnie's leaflet has raised concerns with this supporter. Among the 'If elected John will..' commitments is something concerning the road networks in the area:
'Support the Scottish Government's commitment to dual the A9 and lobby to ensure funding for the Inverness Trunk Link Road.'
And the A96 please? I'm sure that John Finnie will support a Nairn by-pass, can't think why it didn't rate a mention on the leaflet though? The last thing we need is the SNP going Invercentric on us.
Ma bhrùthas sibh air an dealbh gheibh thu fear nas mhotha agus chì thu gu bheil Iain ag ionnsachadh Gàidhlig ge-tà, sin thu fhèin a bhalaich!
