Labours Phenomenal Scottish Victory

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.

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod

    Long Live Liebour! Good one, Rod!

  2. Hi,all.I’m happier after reading several blogs on the truth,like who took most seats =SNP, therefore who won =SNP.

    But there is still a nagging little voice in my head,and it is the postal votes! Now I don’t trust postal votes never have.I would like to know how many postal votes were actually counted,and who were they for? My next question would be the obvious one those that “used” the postal system,are the alive? are the in jail?do they really live at the address they claimed the postal vote from? I am suspicious of them,just me?

    • I think you are very justified in your suspicions of the possibility of postal vote abuse and fraud going on.
      Labour introduced it, and since then,on a couple of occasions, have been caught out down south in particular, committing fraud.
      They also like to get voters to send their votes to Labour, for Labour to submit. Dodgy as hell.
      I don’t know of any suspicions on this occasion, but personally I feel that if a person is going to use it, they should be forced to give solid reason and evidence for why? Provision of medical certificates, or evidence that they will be away from home etc.
      It needs to be cleaned up, and monitored properly to stop potential abuses and electoral fraud.

    I use a postal vote, although I send it straight to the returning officer, not the labour party. Indeed my postal vote package only gives the one address (the returning officer) so how you go about getting it to a party I don’t know.

    • They have been caught out a couple of times asking folks to give them to Labour HQ. They then seemingly forward them to the returning officer.
      Its not illegal, but It should be.

    What disgusts me about BBC Scotland is that their deceit is so obvious and oh so deliberate to those who have some political nuance but so subtle and hidden to most of the viewers. I cringe at the way Brewer, for example feeds his junior reporters or unionist representatives their next line of attack, while he himself sounds so reasonable, though a little surprised, shocked or perhaps just curious.

    One thing is certain, it has to be tackled beginning this year otherwise it will make a telling difference to the Referendum result over the next 30 months.

    The public must be made aware of BBC Scotland’s vile manipulation of the news because they are getting better at it with each passing election, though as has been said by others, they surpassed themselves with this ‘Labour Non Win’ election.

    As for voting irregularities, we would be naive to assume their were none.

    The Scottish media annoys the hell out of me and something should be done to clip their wings. I have complained to the BBC about unaccurate reporting at election and will not be renewing my TV Licence
