We have sensed a few grumbles about YSF’s stance against BLiS (British Labour in Scotland) and their current troubles. Why aren’t you attacking the Tories we heard. But we do frequently post information which reveals the Tories as self serving career politicians who are wreaking havoc with Brexit in an attempt to line their own pockets or those of their friends and families by creating a tax free environment for corporate greed.
So should we lay off Labour? Well no quite frankly because as we say in Scotland they are two cheeks of the same *rse as we know by the way they shared platforms and street stalls during Indyref 2014 with the Tories ( and in Aberdeen the National Front)
They have now stated categorically that they will refuse a referendum for Scotland Independence as part of their manifesto should they get elected. ‘Should they get elected’ is the crucial part. They are going to throw all sorts of lies at the electorate in Scotland if there is a snap General Election. They will wheel out ‘Project Fear’ with a vengenge the same way they chapped doors and lied to pensioners in 2014 that their pensions were at risk if they voted for independence and told us that we would ‘lose EU membership’ if we voted for independence.
One by one all of their arguments have been proven to be false and baseless. All they have left is fear and the persistent ‘drip, drip, drip’ of media bias orchestrated in part from the pretty bottomless budget of ‘Mundell’s Mansions’.
So we do not apologise for our focus on both sets of Tories, Red or Blue. The hype surrounding Corbyn is just that, hype. No amount of ‘vote for us’ and we will save Scotland will work.
Labour is lost in Scotland but they still control the media and together with the Conservatives they constantly try to put Scotland back to sleep. Sleep is the state which Labour maintained Scotland in as it returned many MP’s for decades but did nothing to improve the lives of those communities in the central belt and elsewhere.
So we remember this history and our goal is to constantly remind people that these Unionist parties are substantially the same. Only as an independent country can we have the luxury of ‘reseting’ politics and then and only then can we build trust in a Scottish Labour Party as one of many parties in a parliamentary democracy.
Until then they will always serve to rubbish and dismiss anything positive about Scotland.It seems that is all they have to contribute to life in Scotland by working towards achieving SNP bad headlines like this (Thanks to Mick McHale for the mock Sun cover). G
