Eat Your Cereal

Letter to The National, 14/03/16
Dear National,
In the article in Satuday’s National Silent protest to make point about the Monklands McMafia it quotes the Airdrie and Shotts SNP blog which said that “People generally join an organisation because they identify with it, and not to radically change it”. I think this speaks volumes about just how unprepared Airdrie and Shotts SNP were in taking on the surge of new members who joined post referendum and how unwilling they were to adapt to a massive influx of people who joined, not because they slavishly supported SNP policy, but because they believed in independence. This smacks of an “eat your cereal” attitude where new ideas are unwelcome, and where the positive changes which could have seen the party grow locally were abandoned to maintain tight control. More ‘No You Can’t’ than ‘Yes We Can’…
Yours Sincerely,
James Cassidy
