The “leadership” of Scottish Labour is and has always been meaningless. There is no leader of Scottish Labour. Scottish Labour is not a political party in its own right. It has no legal or political reality. Scottish Labour is the British Labour Party in Scotland and every decision of any importance is made by and for the benefit of the real party leadership at 105 Victoria Street in the City of Westminster, London.
We are going to be lied to and manipulated relentlessly until we finally give ourselves a shake and decide to leave this rotten pile of crumbling imperial excrement behind us. Scotland deserves so much better than it is currently getting from Britain, and we have long since passed the point where we have only ourselves to blame.
It has become clear that a return to direct rule is her preferred mode of governing those who will not easily bow the knee to her isolationist Brexit agenda. Her dictatorial refusal to consider the will of the people of Norther Ireland has resulted in a crisis in the Province that has now resulted in the end of the Good Friday Agreement and an election, in which if the DUP fails to regain a majority, that will more than likely result in the collapse of the Power Sharing Executive and the reintroduction of direct rule.
When it comes to a move that threatens the economic wellbeing of everyone in the UK, and one that Scotland has completely rejected, Scotland is powerless to protect both its interests and the democratic will of Scottish people.
Scotland has been hoodwinked into continuing with a political union that is now pursuing a Brexit agenda that both threatens the wellbeing and mocks the democratic decision of our nation.
Blair’s Labour government pushed Scotland’s sea boundary with England north just before devolution. Neil Lovatt argues that the assertion that this was a water-grab is a classic piece of disinformation. Let's see.
We will not get more powers with Brexit. Powers returning to the UK from the EU are matters of sovereignty; the very power that London is determined never to return to the Scottish people.
