With less than 48 hours to go before the polling booths open, Labour have yet once more wheeled out Gordon Brown to make one of his barnstorming speeches, in a repeat of Better Togethers referendum conclusion where Brown made the VOW that if Sc0tland rejected independence we would be guaranteed something better, the best of both worlds he said. The Vow which he would personally guarantee would give Scots Home Rule
““Labour since Keir Hardie has been the Party of Home Rule for Scotland within the United Kingdom so the plan for a stronger Scottish Parliament we seek agreement on is for nothing else than a modern form of Scottish Home Rule within the United Kingdom.”
We all can see how that VOW made on a Daily Record page worked out.
But hey…..Labour think …. We fooled them once with that wheeze, lets roll out Gordy again.
So there was Brown and Murphy today hosting an Invited audience and of course the press pack to sock it to Scots once again.
Here is a summary of what he had to say this time..
Brown urged Yes voters from last year’s independence referendum to “come to Labour” if they want to see change delivered.
Oh Yeh sure!! YES voters voting like Turkeys for Labour and hoping for Christmas.
He warned Scots that if they back the SNP at the ballot box they “make it more likely that the Tories are the largest party on Thursday and David Cameron is there on Friday”. “You could have 59 SNP MPs but you would probably have a Conservative government.
Sorry Gordy…..we Scots are far too politically savvy now to fall for that old Labour chestnut.
We Know fine well that it is the party who can claim the support of a majority in the House of Commons, not necessarily the party with the most seats, that gets to form the government. So it doesn’t matter if the Torys get to be the largest party if they dont have a majority. So a majority of SNP MPs does not mean your lie that we are going to have a Tory government.
“We can achieve more in a few short minutes with Labour ministers and a Labour cabinet than we could ever achieve in five long years under the Conservatives, with all the SNP MPs in opposition.”
Oh yehh sure sure Gordy..go get your medicine man.
13 Years of your government saw Boom and BUST….which we are still paying for.
It saw your raids on pensions. It saw the beginnings of privatisation of the NHS, It saw the mechanism for the bedroom tax, It saw light touch financial regulation, It saw an increase in the divide between rich and poor.. It saw new criminal offenses being made for every day of your term.
Is this what you mean by achieving more in minutes?
“The reason why we can’t do a deal with SNP is not expediency, it’s on principle. We can not have a deal, or a compromise, or a tie-in with a party that doesn’t share the principles of solidarity.”
Goodness knows what on earth he means by this? Solidarity with whom? The Labour party, or the poor and deprived and disadvantaged and disabled who Labour sold down the swannie to the likes of ATOS..
Gordy the nutter wants to provide free transport to foodbanks, and create more foodbanks rather than get rid of the need for them.
Tell the deprived areas of Glasgow and the housing schemes how their lives were bettered by 50 years of Labour rule in their constituency…. You left these people to rot Gordy.
he told voters: “If you want to vote for social justice there is no other party, the Conservative Party don’t support social justice do they?”Every vote counts and it has to be a Labour vote. I find it perverse logic for the SNP to say you can have a Labour government without voting for Labour candidates.”
and he finished his speech with an impassioned plea to Scots voters to join Labour on “the mountaintop of social justice”.
The mountain top of deeper cuts than the conservatives more like. New Labour wouldn’t recognise social justice if it jumped up and licked their face… They are a party who have gone so far from their roots, that they only recognise these words from a bygone age, but have no idea what they mean, and care even less. All they care about is their own entitlement and preserving what they regard as theirs.
With the clock ticking rapidly down on them, all they know to do is stage mock riots where they invite every numptie they can think of. Or they wheel out tame celebrities who will gladly accept the extra public exposure, such as the transvestite comedian Eddie Izzard… although he knows nothing of scottish politics. He is in a sense a very apt choice to represent Labour.
Labour have cross dressed their policies so much they can barely be told apart from the conservatives.
People of Scotland….. It is now time we stopped listening to the ways of the past.
Instead it is time for us to make a real change and real difference…and the rest of Britain knows it. this whole election, for the first time in the Unions history, hangs on what Scotland decides..
Lets make it really work for us..
and leave the dinasaurs of yesterday to their own devices, while we invent a new wheel.
