Messrs. Hogg & McCartney of the SS are quoted in today's Paisley Daily Express as saying that the Labour Council are damaging sports and recreational facilities, Hogg is pictured at Millarston with a pathetic placard claiming that these fields are well used which must be as big a surprise to the people of the area as it is to me. Along with others in the labour movement I have learned through bitter experience what Hogg's word is worth and that is less than nothing. I know the place well and even when my children attended St. Mirin's High School which stood there until six years ago the place was very rarely used at all and is used even less now, that's a fact, but it doesn't suit the ambulance chasing Hogg & McCartney of the SS. They are not about to let the truth get in the way of their latest trumped up story to try to damage Labour. According to the logic of the SS and these two fantasists, the Labour Council's investment of £4.5 million in sports facilities, mainly football, is a bad thing, that is their ludicrous position. Is it any wonder that their mountain of lost deposits is beginning to constitute an environmental hazard. One final thing, who are the mysterious two small boys who seem to appear in every picture of Hogg where children can be used to shore up his dodgy arguments, they are there again in the background, pretending to be locals, who can they be ?
