    Looks like the social democrats are just as big of a failure in Scotland as everywhere else, Tommy.

    They currently face extinction in Germany and are often down to as low as 15% of the vote.

    While scrat is desperate to try and fling **** at nicola sturgeon , its worth remembering how the labour party , in control of glasgow city council for something like 8 decades , spent the best part of the last decade fighting its female employees in court over equal pay , and spending Ł2.5 miilion of taxpayers money in the process.

    When they were kicked out of power in glasgow in 2017 , they then went on to have the cheek to blame the snp for not giving glasgow council workers equal pay , and only late last year were still trying to pull empty and pathetic wee stunts in attempting to stir up unions to strike , and blame the snp for the labour parties economic mismanagement of 8 decades in glasgow city council . Council tax receipts barely covered the cost of debt interest payments run up under labour alone.

    Scrat talks about foodbanks and poverty , all the hallmarks across the uk of labour rule.

    The current scottish labour branch manager , and sidekick of corbyn and momentum labour , richard leonard , was a key figure for 25 years in the gmb union that helped glasgows labour council fight against equal pay for female workers , and did a shady deal behind the scenes with the labopur run council in 2006 that allowed unequal pay to continue due to trickery and treachery.

    I think scotland never mind glasgow , has had its fill of labour , wether old labour , new labour or momentum labour.

    Wonder when the good folk of england are going to wake up to them and smell the coffee.

    The big problem as i have said before Rei is that the british parties have to try and face in different political directions to get into power in both scotland and england at the same time , and invariably it never works as they fall flat on their arses.

    Scotland and england want different things , brexit being a prime example , and how does corbyn square the hole in that debate , never mind going into policy in other areas where there are vast differences in public opinion in the two countries.

    Imagine a political party trying to straddle public opinion in germany and france at the same time , i would imagine it would be very difficult to hold the same policy in both countries.

    The snp can concentrate on scotland , the scottish electorate sees this , while the labour or tory branch manager in scotland has to ask london permission on any and every topic.

    Previous branch managers in scotland complained about this publicy , and were slapped down and forced to resign.

    Westminster just cant face the fact new politics are developing across these islands , all they know is to carry on regurgitating the same old parties wether its corbyn trying totake us back to the seventies , or johnson wanting to be the next churchill , the world is changing and westminster is stuck in the past .
