A new list candidate? (Ian Selbie)

SIC councillor Amanda Westlake is apparently an SNP supporter, which she conveniently failed to disclose when she canvassed.

Is she setting herself up to be a list SNP candidate at the next election for Alistair Carmichael’s job?

    Very sad but playing with the truth appears an SNP trademark . Must have taken lessons from Ale C. Two examples, one not so important, on the Dannus, Nippy election poster.
    “We promise to cut fares for lifeline ferry services”, the facts. Nippy’s actual words “This is all she said,”A re-elected SNP government will begin work immediately to look at how we can reduce fares for the Northern Isles”. This means nothing. “work immediately to look at” nine years in power and will begin to look!!!
    Disinformation two, one that can result in people dying of cancer. This relates to mouth cancer.
    The SNP claim, “Under the SNP the number of people in Scotland registered with a dentist has increased by nearly two million – a fantastic 82 per cent increase since 2007.” The simple fact is, the S/G SNP, have altered dental contracts, to ensure that every patient, attending an NHS dentist, for any reason, is automatically registered for life. They may never be able to attend to see that , or any other dentist, for for treatment ever again!! However they will still be registered. Classic SNP propagandist subtifuge, many Shetlanders wear the registered with a dentist but can not get an appointment T shirt. Only the SNP would make such a dangerous boast. This seemed a good blog to put that on, seeing it is about subterfuge and truth manipulation..
