West Lothian Council

Readers in West Lothian are gearing up to give the local council a hard time.

The reason being that people are fed up with the council's foot dragging behaviour - West Lothian is one of the few remaining councils not to have made settlement offers in respect of its outstanding claims.

Why is West Lothian so different from everyone else?

Who knows - they have blown hot and cold about settlement discussions for years.

Why has another SNP led council - such as West Dunbartonshire - managed to get its finger out by acquiring extra borrowing funds from the Scottish government?

While West Lothian sits on its hands.

Good question and that's what people have every right to ask - their local councillors and MSPs.
