Gordon Brown Row Breaks Out Over Freedom Of Fife
A row has broken out after an SNP MP called for Gordon Brown to be given the Freedom of Fife for “his outstanding public service”.
No its not a windup Tricia Marwick is for real, how anyone could consider what Brown did from giving our gold away to cutting the defence budget 4 times while we were at war to be “outstanding public service” beggars belief. The only award Brown should be getting is a lamp post and a length of piano wire.
Claire Baker the Labour MSP for central Fife does not agree:
This led to Central Fife’s Labour MSP Claire Baker claiming Mrs Marwick was merely shedding “crocodile tears” for the Kirkcaldy MP.
Ms Baker went further, compiling and releasing a list of put downs to the press which were aimed directly at Mr Brown by the SNP member throughout the years.
“Just a few months ago, Ms Marwick insulted Gordon Brown by calling him a ‘bit player’ on the world stage,” said Ms Baker.
But Ms Baker’s actions have led to a furious backlash from one local Labour stalwart, former councillor Joyce Smith, who was fuming after learning of the content of the press release.
