Labour Leader to face vote of no confidence.

Recommended Posts

Jim Murphy might only have been Labour leader in Scotland for a few months, but it looks like he is being used as a scapegoat by the party for its annihilation at the hands of the SNP. He is to face a vote of no confidence. Perhaps the party should face a vote of no policies.

Labour will bounce back in Scotland. The SNP wont be riding high forever. The Scottish parliament will resemble the Chinese congress soon when its full of SNP members, and blaming Westminster for things going wrong will start to wear thin after a while.

I don't know, Labour in Scotland have dined out on that for years. The SNP just stole their trick.

I think you are right to an extent.....but the days of Maxton, Gallacher,Shinwell,the ILP,Red Clydeside etc , have, I'm afraid, gone for ever.

The Nats are in power and the rump of the Scottish Labour Party (or what's left of it) , will have to lick its wounds and decide if it will ever be a viable force in Scotland again.

I, personally, think they're stuffed.

It's great to hear you're so optimistic about the future.

 

Maggie Thatcher's flying monkeys are usually bitching on about how they're outnumbered by poor folk and immigrants (or even poor immigrants)

Once the Nationalists get independence, (which they will),their demise will quickly follow.

Maybe.

Also: the Union of the Crowns [1603]- and later Union of the countries [1707]- happened because Scotland could not pay its debts.
