The following hour and a half long video is of the recent Clydebank Trades Council meeting with a Labour MSP and Labour Councillors. It is educational to hear ordinary people talking to them and letting them know exactly what they think of Labour and the Tories and Westminster. It certainly is an uncomfortable evening for the Labour politicians, because they are getting attacked most of all. These locals all supported Labour, many for generations. If anything they feel angrier at Labour than they do at the Tories or the Lib Dems, because they didn’t expect anything much of them anyway. But the sense of utter betrayal they feel for Labour is palpable.
Jackie Bailey tries to brazen it out, but gets slaughtered.
The fact is the media, the BBC, the press should be talking to these people, but this is real politics, not the stuff they play at in front of the TV cameras and tame hand picked and controlled audiences. This is the voice of Scotland today, and it is not a happy voice at all.
I have been saying for over a year now, the people need to be able to contribute and own the Independence Referendum, not the politicians. Time to put an end to the nonsense we are hearing from politicians and media daily.
If you want to know what the people of Scotland think, or have to say? You have to let us Speak!
If you want to watch any real life tv, watch this! Listen and observe, and take note! Here is the reality of Scotland in the UK. It’s not pretty.
