FRIDAY saw Nicola Sturgeon launching the SNP’s local government election campaign in Govanhill.

You’d have been forgiven for missing it as the SNP excluded the print media from attending and asking questions.

That is all too typical of the behaviour we’ve come to expect from the SNP government, who dodge scrutiny on their failures in government.

At the launch, Nicola Sturgeon said the council elections were a chance to send a clear message to Boris Johnson.

I don’t believe they are and here’s why. For the last five years Glasgow has seen a steep decline in the general cleanliness of our city. Sightings of rats are commonplace, bins are overflowing, roads and pavements are cracking and crumbling, fly-tipping is out of control and our city centre is full of boarded up and empty premises.
