Labour Labours On In Scotland

The following is an email I received from one of my readers.  He's not the first to complain about the nonsensical policies Labour promise in their manifesto and I suspect this form of electoral material is partly to blame for turning people to the much more realistic SNP. Last week many journalists in the Scottish MSM gave advice to Labour on improving their campaign strategy.

My advice is they should have another relaunch on Monday.
Just got a pile of waste paper in the mail box. And Labour's attempt to con me has quotes from Iain Gray, who is seemingly claiming to be Scottish Labour Leader. Now if I understand it right, there is no Scottish Labour party to lead, he is only Labour leader in Holyrood, a different thing altogether.

However, I digress.

The quotes:  "...Now the Tories are back, we need a strong Government in Scotland fighting for working people . My first priority is to make sure you and your family aren't left to pay the price of Tory cuts". Iain Gray. Scottish Labour's leader.

Why do we need the cuts? Because of labour stupidity.

Also, "Scottish Labour will not introduce tuition fees... will guarantee apprenticeships for qualified youngsters. Within 100 days, labour in government will be creating 10,000 jobs for unemployed youngsters".

All this to re-elect one Dr Richard Simpson for Labour.  I'd be more likely to vote for Homer Simpson and that wouldn't happen either. 

I dont know what the writer of the pamphlet was smoking when he wrote it, but if the dreams are that good, where can we get some ?

I was tempted to go into battle with an email for a few seconds, then thought what's the point, it's like trying to teach a pig to sing; it just wastes your time and annoys the pig.

This morning sees the Scotland on Sunday come out in support of Alex Salmond and the SNP.  Who says a leopard never changes its spots?

The magic of monarchy casts its spell on the Scottish peoples (just in time)

The extremist Nats opinion poll lead disappears alongside their Independence mince.

Salmond bows and scrapes to the Royal Family down in London.
Whatever occurs May 5th the Unionists have won the Nats have the wooden spoon(no doubt for more stirring)

Hi SR, The things candidates say on electioneering pamphlets, they must think no one reads them :-)
Looked at your SoS link, it struck me that a few commenting in that paper dont seem to realise the reason labour get good results is that the voting system we use is designed to get that result, and guess what, its a proportional system !
It produces coalitions regularly which is great if your coalition partner is a clone of your own party. That is why a proportional system seemed to work well in Australia for so long. But remember, Australian politics is full of tricks the Politicians here have never dreamed of,and thank God for that!

Hi SR,Just in case readers would like to know how to really rig elections, this man knew how.
He knew a lot of tricks. The clowns around here are Amateurs.
