Following the opening of a foodbank in Milngavie, the SSP has been voicing it's disgust at the Tory and Liberal Democrat austerity drive that forced people to become reliant on food packages.
SSP member, Angus Clark had this letter published in the Bearsden/Milngavie Herald.

Yesterday, Campsie Branch had their Burns lunch in Kirkintilloch. We invited SSP West of Scotland Organiser, Richie Venton to share in our celebration.
Branch Organiser, Neil Scott, introduced Ron Mackay by reminding everyone there was more than one anniversary on our minds. This year, Cameron and the Tories were wanting us to "celebrate" World War 1. He reminded comrades that Friday was the 95th anniversary of the Bloody Sunday events in George Square where Red Clydesiders like Willie Gallacher were baton charged by the police, and because of the Westminster fear of Revolution on the Clyde, tanks were sent up to patrol Glasgow's streets.

And from Gallacher:
"What a terrible attraction a war can have! The wild excitement, the illusion of wonderful adventure and the actual break in the deadly monotony of working class life!
And the graffitti that appeared on Kitchener posters all over Glasgow:
"Your king and county need you, Ye hardy sons of toil.
But will your king and country need you when they're sharing out the spoils?"
Ron then told us of a Burns Supper he had attended at which "T-Total" Willie Gallacher had toasted the Haggis with water. Richie thanked Ron and expressed his honour at sharing a party with Ron, who is a true inspiration to us all.
Richie wrote afterwards:
|SSP Campsie Capitalist of the year prize to...|
And well done Mark for winning our Capitalist competition (earning chocolate coins when anyone dared say the words, socialism, silence or SSP!)!
|A Man's a man!|
|Edna reading "A Man's a Man..."|

Many thanks to the Indian Cottage for a great meal (and a super deal!) and putting up with the racket!
We also managed to decide that we will make a collection for the local foodbank at the next branch meeting.
