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.
