Friends and readers.
The polls are telling us mug punters that the SNP will gain a landslide on May 7th. They may be right who knows, but politics has a strange way of coming up behind you and biting you hard on the bum. Certainly Labour are in disarray and deserve to get stuffed, but the downside of that is it may let the Tories back in through the back door. Still lots to play for and there will certainly be many twists and turns before the voting fodder go to the polls.
But dear friends we have a fascinating contest right on our doorstep in sunny Edinburgh North and Leith were the SNP are hoping to unseat sitting MP Mark the cat Lazarowicz. Markie boy who has been in training for the election restricting his self the delights of the good life he has come to enjoy over his period as MP. None of that for SNP candidate, waltzing Matilda herself Deidre cobber Brock. Unfortunately our Deidre thinks the campaign will be won by the yes mob, which it clearly won’t be and according to our reliable source has surrounded herself with them, rarely venturing out of her bolt hole in Leith.
And we must remember that for all her posturing she has never actually won an election, coming second in the seat she represents in the Council. No second prize in this election. On the other hand Labour have dominated this constituency for generations and it shows. Their complacency is staggering, an example of this arrogant complacency was to select our bestest mate, pretty much chair of everything and Queen of blunderland Lesley Prada Hinds as their candidate for the Holyrood elections. What a gift for the SNP, somebody up there must like them as our Lesley was the worst possible choice, she’s a complete numpty and never gets it right usually costing the City a fortune into the bargain.
The Drylaw Dragon certainly breaths fire but it will be extinguished come the Holyrood elections. Labour have hit the skids and in Scotland could seriously become an irrelevance come May8th. The warning signs are already there for the SNP, get to big and forget what their purpose is. Fill the party with 5 minute wonders and pander to their every whim. We see this in clarity in Edinburgh North and Leith where Markie boy believes he is invincible and the Labour faithful will come out in their droves and return him to the trough of Westminster. He realises that the turnout will not be as big as the referendum and that his stance on the issue will serve him well with the no punters supporting him as well as some of the yes punters.
That’s a flawed plan just as it is for the SNP who believe that the yes punters will come out in their droves and vote cobber to the trough in Westminster. It just won’t happen, will someone please put them out of their misery and tell them this is not a referendum, but a complex election where there is not a yes no on the ballot paper. We are informed by one of our readers that they are actually asking punters on the doorstep, would they like to see an independent Scotland. Nice one really clever thinking. wonder who the genius was that thought that one up. The SNP are in danger of getting carried away with their own importance and that dear friends will hand it to the dead beats of Labour, who we are told have more or less resigned themselves to losing.
At least the party had the sense not to select a five minute wonder as their candidate, and fortunetly not the dreadful Joan my heart is in the North Cherry, she makes Markie boy look honest. These are the very people who will eventually drag the SNP down to their own level and return them to a fringe party. But enough of that, cobber marches on, only in Leith of course surrounded by hangers on and wanabees, while Markie boy struggles to find anyone to hang on to him, and in typical comradely fashion desert the sinking ship. Labour have a history of back stabbing, in fact they have made it into an art form and there is nothing the comrades like better than tearing each other apart, the SNP should take note.
But we are swimming in leaflets and door knockers promising us the world if we vote for them, they are all liars of a form but it’s a tradition in this country that politicians lie to you and candidates lie even more, wouldn’t be the same if they told the truth, the electorate would be shocked. Labours election consists of critisising the Tories rightly so while forgetting to tell us what they are going to do apart from put the top rate of tax back up to 50p and impose a mansion tax, that won’t raise much. Be brave put it up to 60p, plug the tax loopholes immediatly instead of promising they will crack down on the dodgers. End the charity status of private schools and make them pay their share. Tax the private health sector and invest the receipts in the NHS. Build houses that people can afford and end the scourge of rogue landlords.
Break up the cartel that own most of the land and sell it for the benefit of the nation. And dear friends take back Government which has been handed over to the Eurocrats. Will Labour do any of that, of course not they are prisoners of the money markets which they did so much to embrace and who hate the sight of Labour. They will just tinker about and in the end do fuck all. What of an SNP influence, would that change Labours view on the financial institutions and the dodgers and crooks who steal from the country and the well heeled who take advantage of the system. Why of course not, fuck about with Trident which even the SNP know they have no chance however noble of removing. Will a potential SNP influence do much good for the punters, maybe but unlikely.
Will an SNP influence force a Labour administration to take on the financial crooks and the obscenity of these bastards that brought us to the brink of financial collapse. No not a chance, probably won’t even be mentioned and that’s a sad fact as any potential horse trading takes place. We will still have food banks, still have the crooks in the banking and financial sector, still have a huge housing problem, and still be just the mug punters that watch it from afar. Who do you vote for? do any of them have a clue or give a toss once they have their snouts in the trough? We are adrift on the sea of uncertainty, but one thing is certain, when we wake up on May 8th something will have happened but it won’t be a revolution of any kind just a slight blip until normal service is resumed. Wonder what odds Ladbrokes are offering on the first SNP MP to be involved in a scandal of some sort, not worth betting on Labour MP’s involved in dodgy dealings that’s a cert, and as for the Tories they don’t need to their pals in the City hand it to them. Heads you lose tails you lose even more.
