Kenny G - Wrong Party

At a time when many are saying that there is a need for greater and more varied parties in Parliament, as there was in 2003, it is refreshing to see that Kenny Gibson is considering switching his political allegiance to the Scottish Senior Citizens Unity Party. I'm sure this policy was on their manifesto.

S3M-02651 Kenneth Gibson (Cunninghame North) (Scottish National Party): Scottish Pensioners' Parliament— That the Parliament notes the importance of considering the perspectives of older people through the establishment of a Scottish Pensioners’ Parliament, similar to the Scottish Youth Parliament; recognises that pensioners need to be able to express more fully their concerns about current issues and suggest solutions for their problems, and welcomes the effort of older people to come together to debate issues of importance to them, their families and Scotland.

Maybe Kenny is angling for a post 65 post, but with the childish nature of some of his motions, he might be better suited in the Youth Parliament.
