At 16:17 today in Westminster, the house divided: Ayes 515, Noes 18. What does this mean? It means the Labour Party has shafted Scotland yet again. I’m tempted to say such treachery has not witnessed since 17:07 but this is no laughing matter. On the contrary, this ruinous support of George Osbourne’s draconian fixed timetable deficit reduction plan has doomed the nation to increased poverty and decline, which could result in Scots starving and freezing to death.
28 disgusting examples of misrepresentation from Labour’s dying Scottish branch have played a treacherous game of ‘follow my leader’ by supporting a Tory £75Bn plan of wanton destruction and budget irresponsibility. They have obeyed their boss Ed Milliband’s instructions by sticking 2 metaphorical fingers up to the poorest and most vulnerable in our society with one hand, while obediently saluting their London master with the other. Jim Murphy went one step further by not even turning up.
Ed Miliband has previously announced that Labour would gleefully support the Tories in their savage Deficit reduction programme. The nation now has to prepare for a gut-wrenching round of cataclysmic austerity measures to reduce the deficit at the direct expense of the needy. This selfish Charter for Budget Responsibility, effectively binds the next Westminster government to crippling cuts that will impact all areas of public services, hurting those with least, the most.

Shame on those selfish people and their audacity in claiming to be socialists. Fellow Scots of all persuasions, what more do these people have to do until you realise you are being duped? They are not in the least bit interested in you or your problems. Their aim is to keep the wealth among the elite. They will do nothing but compound the wider social issues and inequities that are so badly hurting this country. Such a Parcel of Rogues in a Nation. Remove them in May.
