As many regular readers know I live in the east of Scotland where the politics, these days, are very different from the West.
It can be very difficult for me to understand why the west of Scotland, particularly Glasgow and the surrounding areas, continue to vote labour when they are the party which have kept so many in poverty. Yet the people vote for them.
Outlander has written his personal account of trying hard to understand why his father votes labour. Do have a read of it here. It doesn't answer many questions but where I firmly agree is in the SNP's tactics. They really must improve their skills in countering labour lies. I've suggested this for some time now yet there seems to be no progress.
It's time the SNP started practicing some tricks - dirty tricks.
