SCOTTISH SOCIALISTS TO STAND GENERAL ELECTION CANDIDATES IN MAY

Meeting in Glasgow at the weekend the executive committee of the Scottish Socialist Party unanimously agreed to commence the process  of selecting candidates for next May’s general election.

SSP National spokesperson Colin Fox  said : “The preference of the SSP was to field candidates under a ‘Yes alliance’ banner drawn from the three pro independence parties us, the SNP and the Greens which we felt was the best way of harnessing the energy of the broad Yes campaign in a united effort to defeat the unionist parties  .”

Lord Smith’s recommendations announced today amount to very little. Despite the widespread appetite for change acknowledged by both sides following Septembers historic and far reaching independence referendum The Smith Commission has emerged from the darkness offering very little to satisfy that hunger.

It’s fair to say the Independence movement expected very little from the Smith Commission, but the Scottish Socialist Party, as the only party officially involved in the Referendum not invited to join the deliberations, was certainly expecting more than this.

SSP Submission to the Smith Commission          Read the submission they tried to exclude. The Scottish Socialist Party was the only one of the six parties formally involved in the Independence Referendum NOT invited to join the bilateral talks convened by Lord Smith of Kelvin on the further powers that should now be devolved to Holyrood.

Notwithstanding our formal exclusion the Scottish Socialist Party has today sent in our own submission outlining the powers we believe should be transferred to the Scottish Parliament.
