Cllr Annette Ireland
2 d

I have made a change to my social media today which some may have already noticed. – I am now sitting as an Independent Councillor.

This is something that has, unfortunately, been on my mind since last December’s Full Council meeting.

The SNP has been my political home for almost 10 years now and this change signifies a fundamental personal shift for me, one that I've carefully considered and given a great deal of thought to.

Since 2014 being a member of the SNP has been a great source of happiness, and was a party I was extremely proud to be a part of.

It has always been the vehicle through which I've fought for Scotland’s much needed independence, strived for positive change here locally, worked hard for a better fairer future for residents, sought to protect local jobs and services, and worked towards improved environmental policies .

My passion for that vision remains as strong as ever.

On a purely personal level, it has been an incredible honour to collaborate with the many immensely talented, hard working, and inspiring colleagues throughout the party.

Being elected in 2017, and 2022, under the SNP banner to represent local residents in Clarkston, Netherlee, Busby, Stamperland and Williamwood has been the absolute greatest privilege.

The friendships and connections I've forged over these past years are invaluable, and I genuinely hope to maintain many of them despite my departure.

While it has been an incredibly difficult decision to leave the local East Renfrewshire SNP council group, I wish nothing but personal happiness and professional success to my former colleagues.

I am committed to continuing the pursuit of shared goals, my desire for independence remains undiminished, and my door will always be open to those who wish to work on policies with shared principles and passion, whether at the council or elsewhere.

Though my decision to leave was not taken lightly, in fact it was made with reluctance and was the most difficult decision I have had to make and one I have agonised over since last December’s Full Council meeting, this was entirely my own and driven by my personal reflections.

I will absolutely not be going into the specifics of the local circumstances that led to this choice, only that I concluded that I could no longer continue to work as part of the SNP Council group in East Renfrewshire.

I deeply care about the people and places I have been elected to represent, and I believe this decision provides the best opportunity for me to make a positive difference in the local communities of Clarkston, Netherlee, Busby, Stamperland and Williamwood and across East Renfrewshire Council in the years to come.

An enormous heartfelt thank you to all those who have expressed and continue to show their support during what has been a challenging process.

Your support means the world to me.]]>
