Who's Looking Out For The Public Interest?
I have written to Fulton McGregor, the SNP MSP for Coatbridge and Chryston), about the curious arrangement whereby a senior SNP councillor in North Lanarkshire has three separate jobs - all paid by the public purse.
Dear Mr McGregor
Councillors in 2nd and 3rd Jobs
I refer to the attached press report from The Times and would be grateful if you can explain how it can be a proper use of public money for Cllr Alan Stubbs to hold three separate jobs - as a senior SNP councillor in North Lanarkshire, as an assistant to an SNP MSP (ie yourself) and with Police Scotland - all at the same time?
Seems to me that someone ought to be looking out for the public interest and the public purse.
I look forward to your reply.
