The votes have all been counted, the people have all gone home, and the results are all in, bar one ward in Dunoon which wont be voting till next Thursday.Other than that, its all done and dusted for the councils for another 4 years, and you are stuck with who you voted for, or didn’t vote for, as was the majority verdict.
So who won? According to the BBC (see my previous article,Penguins and Polar Bears) It was Labour wot won it, and a cursory glance at the main newspapers today, they all agree.
The SNP juggernaut has stalled in a ditch, and Labour are back on the march.
All of the print press have taken their figures and lead from the BBCs reporting, and have reproduced the same claims. Labour won the Biggest Councils,bar Dundee, and they had more seats gained than the SNP. Labours performance was phenomenal, and the SNP have been given a slap for their impertinence in trying to gain control of Glasgow,
The exception to this analysis is that of STV, who we all know as mickey mouse tv station anyway, run with one camera and a handful of keen amateurs.
That Ladies and Gentleman is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Anything to the contrary you might hear, is but the ravings of discontented nationalist lunatics.
Which is why…With this phenomenal Labour victory, the SNP are in prime position to take over the presidency of COSLA (the representative voice of Scottish Local Government)
They somehow have wangled and cheated their way to having the most council seats, goodness knows how?
Which means of course that along with unfairly having control of the Scottish Assembly, and having unfairly taken their turn for presiding officer in that establishment, they can now call the shots over the combined local authority’s representation.
What next? We can now only sincerely hope for the Largest Labour victory in history when it comes to opposing Independence.
