A phoenix from the ashes

Masterful deconstruction of the pitiful vehicle for conning people and keeping the toffs in charge that the Labour Party has become.

Wee Ginger Dug

It’s time for the British Labour party in Scotland to end. Their party is over, their balloons bounce only because they are kept aloft by an alliance with big business and the City of London.

It can’t go on because it doesn’t work for the majority of the UK and it doesn’t really work for the South either, resulting in over-crowding, mega-inlflated house prices and overburdened transport, health service and schools. 

It’s time to start to think differently for the sake of all the former UK but especially in the interests of The North.
