Dailly seems perfect bedfellow for the nasty party
MIKE DAILLY should stop trying to be something he is not - like pretending to side with the poor while campaigning with the Tories.
THE Daily Record is playing an important role in giving all sides of the referendum debate a say – as it should be for Scotland’s paper.
Last week it included Mike Dailly, a solicitor at Govan Law centre and a member of the Labour Party and the Better Together No Campaign.
Dailly attacked the SNP but failed to explain why, if he really cared about ending poverty, he was campaigning shoulder-to-shoulder with the Westminster government, which is imposing these cuts.
When Mr Dailly claims to be a champion of the have-nots, I remain sceptical.
A wee while back I was subject to a bizarre personal attack from him on Facebook.
I think of it whenever I hear the no campaign complain of cybernats – there are lots of nasties on the other side too.
Dailly had posted a video on his Facebook of my former husband Pat Kane of Hue & Cry singing the Michael Marra song Mother Glasgow. Fair enough – it’s a great tune.
Dailly also bragged about how he met Pat at a wedding a few years ago and they got on great guns.
Then he added, “but his then wife Joan McAlpine was a moany snob!”.
It was snide, personal and completely gratuitous.
If Mr Dailly had really known Pat he’d have known not to trash the mother of his two children. To Dailly’s embarrassment, the able Mr Kane went to his page and pointed out that he couldn’t remember meeting him and found his remarks offensive.
Mike should have learned an important lesson – don’t pretend to be something you are not, like a friend of celebrities you once shared a table with.
Or pretend to side with the poor while campaigning with the Tories.
