It’s interesting to follow the current problems affecting the Scottish Labour Party in Scotland. Even more interesting when you consider its roots as a Scottish Political Party. For example this statement was published jointly by the joint committee of the Scottish Labour Party and the Highland Land League in 1918 just after the end of World War 1.

“The Scottish Labour Party and the Highland Land League, believing that Scotland’s interests can best be secured by the re-establishment of the Scottish Parliament, and by the land of Scotland being owned and controlled by the Scottish state, desire your support. Since the Union of Scotland and England in 1707, Scotland has experienced ever increasing difficulty in obtaining from Westminster that attention to her needs which she demands they deserve. Most of the efforts for reform made by Scotland have been spoiled or defeated by overwhelming English votes. The English people show a marked disposition to conservatism, whilst the Scottish people on the other hand are undoubtedly progressive in political thought and action. The result of the Union has been that Celtic culture and Scottish ideals are discouraged, while the tendency is for the ideals and culture of England to be thrust upon our country. Large areas of Scottish Land have been denuded by people in order to provide sporting grounds for the idle rich“

Says it all really.

Hasn’t Scottish Labour come a long way? Or is there a savior? Could it be the vein popping crate dancer, protector of the Union who has dodged the slippers and eggs of the Scottish people?

Who knows?

Unable to speak out on real social issues affecting the people of Scotland for fear of upsetting the New Labour of Toryism.
It s likely though that they will remain the Westminster puppets and Scotland’s only political party of Conservatism.
Still confused Scottish Labour?

I think you do them an honour of calling them SCOTTISH labour saorsa. Its this type of label that has conned the people of scotland into voting for these muppets all my lifetime , thinking they have our best interests at heart.

The only labour party in scotland is her majestys imperial new london labour party. What next? Hopefully eradication of this cancer of a party.

Never have they in my lifetime ever had scotlands interests at heart. Until scotland wakes up to them , we will never have a free , fair and progressive country of our own.

slainte!
