The Scottish Labour Party have chosen to disengage from their own voters with regards to the possibilities that exist for Scotland: either within the Union or through Independence. Instead they’ve adopted a strategy of trying to hijack the Indy Referendum and railroad it into a pointless Punch and Judy Show between themselves and the SNP.
They’ll rue the day they went down this road because a growing group of their own supporters are now stepping up to the mark and filling the political vacuum Scottish Labour have left in their wake. 100 people attended the launch of Labour for Independence in Glasgow last week. They’ve produced the above poster, which is a beauty. I hope Labour for Independence find the resources to put 100,000s of these through letter boxes in every former Labour stronghold. Especially in Glasgow.
In the battle for hearts and minds a few home truths delivered with brevity and precision can make all the difference.
