STOP the SNP

It is becoming absolutely clear that Labour in Scotland are in full scale panic mode.
It is no big surprise that they are having a melt down, and no big surprise that the media are not at all keen to report it.
With the mass increase in the SNPs membership since the referendum, and with previous labour supporters finally seeing the Labour party for what it is,and what it really stands for, jumping ship. Labours stranglehold over deprived communities, and their continued empty promises to the people, are shown up for what they were worth…Nothing, just a cushy life for the favoured Labour few, with a Lordship for some.

The polls in recent times have shown the SNPs lead holding rock solid, and increasing in many constituencies which were once labour strongholds… None of this bodes well for Labour MPs used to the cushy life, they may find themselves joining the dole queue come May 8th.

Of course the BBC and the media in general in Scotland will do their utmost to prevent such a meltdown taking place. They will spin negative stories about the SNP and their prospective candidates, and governance for all they are worth. They will also downplay or not report any good news or results the SNP may have.
In contrast, they will give their opponents, whether they be Labour, Conservative or LibDem, as much air time and print coverage which they can manage, particularly where the SNP is being trashed.
We know this in advance, and we see it happening already, expect more of it, much more!

Lord Ashcrofts poll of Scottish constuenties sent a shiver down their spines, with the poll showing massive swings to SNP in mostly Labour areas which voted YES in the referendum.. Do not be taken in by this… Expect in the near future Ashcroft to do polls in constituencies which mostly voted NO, and these results will not be as mind boggling.
There will unlikely be a Labour wipe out when it comes to the election, but they will be significantly reigned in, and may lose a considerable number of seats to the SNP.
If the SNP can achieve 20 plus seats they will be doing very well.

This may seem all well and good, but do not be lulled into a false sense of security. Making no bones about it, every seat will be a hard fought battle, and the dirty tricks we all saw taking place in the lead up to the referendum will pale into comparison to what is likely to take place now. Labour in Scotland is now like a cornered wounded rat….and they will fight dirty and for all they worth to hold onto their positions of privilege. The recruitment of McDougall from Better Together, and McTernan tells us all we need to know about how they intend to fight this campaign…negative and dirty!

They have no policy but one….”Attack the SNP”…they have sold all they ever stood for long ago, and now they have nothing left but that.

How they do this does not matter, anything goes. Who they tie up with in the process does not matter, these parties have no interest in what their people want, they just want what they want for themselves, power…end of.

In order to achieve this, they have already set plans in motion… they will vote Tory or Lib Dem where either will stand a chance of winning against the SNP candidate…

See Below….

In order to prevent them in scuppering democracy, for the Westminster election, and for maximum voice for Scotland we who supported YES during the referendum would be well advised to vote SNP, irrespective of whether we agree with them on everything or not.
Greens, SSP and Others should then put every effort into strengthening for the Holyrood election next year…

I am all for a YES Alliance, but unfortunately the parties of YES could not come to a formal agreement for the Westminster election, but we can do that for them
I say this as not being either an SNP member or supporter.

We have a battle on our hands, lets get to it!

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

  1. Oh dear oh dear, We’re not Tories Oh Vote Tory lol You guys have no hope of nobbling the democratic system, Alex Salmond for PM ( well miliband as PM really )

  2. Rod back and as strong as ever excellent piece just follow it through its great.I can agree with every word here,I know that the Labour party always kept people in poverty as their voting base,despicable but true they needed to keep lots of people in need so they could breed their own special voters.Have them Labour voters ready to be violent against whomever the party said to bring them down.The aggression that is shown by those who think the union is about them is the result of these breeding programs by the Labour party,or maybe I rant but to me it sure looks like that.

      I have always though Labour wanted to keep the masses poor, under educated and fearful of their jobs. Thus they can keep promising jam tomorrow, knowing that tomorrow never comes, and get reelected to their cushy job in Westminster; with retirement to the Lords.

    There is not a hope in hell of the unionists tactical voting, these parties supporters cannot bring themselves to switch in order to just keep out the SNP.
    Unlike the Yes campaign they have no single cause now, we do and we will continue to galvanise this support as its simple facts that most of the anti union voters are really not very interested whether Cameron or Milliband win 10 Downing St as you can’t fit a fag paper between them anyway.
    How Labour can continue to expect to get the social democratic vote when they abandoned those policies a long time ago is beyond all sense in the real world, but they do, and yet are perplexed and aghast that old Labour supporters are resolutely saying ‘no more’.
    The penny will drop when its too late.
    The only future ‘Scottish’ Labour have is when they form their own separate party and ditch UK Labour altogether (the irony is Labour is a Scottish invention but as with most nicked by upper class twits from the home counties)

    How appropriate

  5. TheBabelFish says:

    I agree with pretty much all you say, I only have one small quibble – the use of the graphic. You can call me an old cynic (and you wouldn’t be the first) but I think providing a handy look up guide to voting tactically against the SNP might not be entirely wise in the circumstances. By the way I, like yourself, have no party affiliation. I was one of those calling for a united Yes Alliance ticket. I’m an independent and although I’m certainly of the left and was once briefly a member of the Labour Party (I was young, it was the 80s), I intend to vote tactically against Labour this time round. In practice that means the SNP, and I will be urging my readers and others to do the same. I am not as yet aware of any constituencies where there is a better anti-Labour tactical option, but I’m keeping an open mind on the subject.

    Well said Rod thank you AYE (y)

    Harold Wilson, October 1974 election.

    “The 11 SNP seats didn’t bother me, i was more worried by the 44 second places they got”.

    “East Dumbartonshire”, eh? I suspect that graphic may not originate in Scotland.

    It is great news that you have picked up the well targetted pen again Rod for the benefit of our cause. “Of course the BBC and the media in general in Scotland will do their utmost to prevent such a meltdown taking place. They will spin negative stories about the SNP and their prospective candidates, and governance for all they are worth. They will also downplay or not report any good news or results the SNP may have.

    So true!
    We have acquired the support though of the Sunday Herald and the National. Tru Radio and one or two other radio stations help combat the political rubbish of Radio Scotland. Hopefully the televised Scottish Evening News will be coming full on soon. Scots need to support these developments and jettison our use of BBC, Daily Record etc. STV and SKY have both improved IMO and I find myself using it more.

    Excellent piece and so very true.

  11. I still enjoy your writings my friend… Even tho’ you’re temporarily ex-Scotia… Are you feeling more gaelic these days..?
