Let's move on here and get back on topic. You've both had the opportunity to set out your opinions very clearly, so please let's not dwell here on a clear difference of opinion. Agree to disagree and move on.

GG.

A couple of campaign posters from Glasgow North East taken in the last week. I did not see one Labour poster in the area during the entire campaign. Also, there were quite a few SNP posters in windows in the area but I never saw any Labour ones.

Is it possible that the decent and conscientious Labour supporters were content to see Murphy's brand of (New) Labour fail in such a spectacular fashion so that they can retake control of the party? Time may tell.

I read in the papers about the parties knocking on doors during the campaign.
Not seen a soul here in Cowlairs.

1 Labour leaflet through the letterbox, hand-delivered.
1 leaflet each from the SNP, Greens, Lib-Dems, Tories, Labour and the TUSC parties, all courtesy of the postman.
Saw the SNP electioneering at the Springburn Shopping Centre twice, never seen any other parties at all.
Totally surprised this morning to see Wee Willie got his books! Never expected to see that happen!
Gobsmacked at the result and thought I was dreaming.
Goodbye, and good riddance, to the Red Tory Party! All of them!

All those people spouting the demise of the Labour Party, believe me, you're going to need that party one day in the not too distant future, why not join it and make it the party it once was. What you have now is Tory by another name.

What amazes me is the people who benefited from the union movement's working conditions and benefits of the 60's through to the 80's, are now the protecting their nest eggs and totally forgotten where it came from. Those conditions and benefits are being eroded on a daily basis.

We watched the U.K. election here in South America, courtesy of the BBC.We were shocked that long-time Labour strongholds were falling like tenpins...who'd have thought.

As a former Glaswegian, as far as my working-class family was concerned anyone who voted other than Labour was a "traitor".

The old-time labour party must have been doing something right to have won the hearts and loyalty of the great city of Glasgow. I wonder where it all went wrong.

Scottish Labour took the vote of the People of Scotland for granted, as safe seats where they didn't have to work to hard to get a majority - a job for life. The electorate woke up and have given them a opportunity too rebrand the party and regain the trust of the electorate. To do so I believe Scottish Labour will have to become Indepentant of the English Labour(Tory) party. Only then can they truly call themselves "Scottish Labour" and truly fight for the rights of the People of Scotland to be heard. Jim Murphy (Monotone man) is not the leader to do this. Do they have the foresight to do this? - at the moment I think not.

Welcome dac182, I think you are spot on. I'm feeling a bit like the footballer who has scored a goal against the club he used to play for. The demise of the Labour Party I supported has everything to do with how it has been run and who has run it. In the past they have treated the electorate with contempt, the electorate has returned the favour.

Miliband and Murphy, really huh.gif What's the opposite of a dream team unsure.gif

Are people not entitled to their opinion eidas, or is that only for people who agree with your political view?

"Is it possible that the decent and conscientious Labour supporters were content to see Murphy's brand of (New) Labour fail in such a spectacular fashion so that they can retake control of the party? Time may tell."

I'd be tempted to think that was the case GG, but for the fact that something like 2% of the population is now a member of the SNP. This article shows that what we've seen in their rise seems to be more than just a mood swing:

https://theconversation.com/depth-of-snp-su...the-1970s-40707

There has been a great deal of derision thrown at the Labour Party since the election results, much of it not undeserved. Perhaps their biggest single fault has been long standing complacency. During much of my 50-odd years, the prevailing feeling towards them has been one of 'they're crap, ineffective, corrupt and have no backbone, but they've come from us and they're all we've got'. That's a disaster waiting to happen, and once Blairism took charge and Labour started to become Tory not just in practice but in theory, the disaster was spawned. In the SNP, we had a party that for many years stood virtually devoid of political thought aside from a misty-eyed desire for independence. In other words, a vacuum waiting to be filled by a people desperate for hope. We've poured that into them, and the rush of membership may well mean that they can't back out of it even if there is a rump of old-school tartanism that's uncomfortable with all these social-democratic oiks. This is what would mean real trouble for Labour, because there would be literally no point in them any more; those of us who want a right-wing opposition to the SNP already have the Conservatives.
