Not the only ones who wanted rid of Labour ...

"Thousands of people in the North of England have been using the hashtag "take us with you Scotland" to express their upset about the result of last week's general election, and the Scottish nationalists are welcoming this English minority with open arms."

I do wish Westminster would take this subtle hint, but I doubt it.
Given all the problems in the country it's interesting that one of the first things the Tories and looking at is lifting the fox hunting ban, along with reducing the welfare budget again.
Ho hum!
Mind you, it does mean that the Tories are acting like Tories whereas Labour didn't act like Labour, hence their downfall.

Aw Betsy, sure the Tories have to keep their priorities right. angry.gif Looks like the New Labour Party will be calling themselves the 'New' 'New' Labour Party they seem to be ditching the unions and trying to appeal to the English voters by being even more right wing. I think they've ditched us in Scotland we're too left wing for them. laugh.gif

Glasgow lost its soul last night. Socialism is a nobler aspiration than nationalism. Independence will make the poor poorer.The radical left in Scotland has been conned by the yellow rosettes.

Socialism is a noble idea, an ideal whose aspirations are held in total contempt by socialist politicians once elected to enhance the prospects of the lower order of humanity, to advance the living standards of the poor and oppressed.

The aspirations of Scottish Labour were to get to London as fast as possible, access that six digit salary, get the taxpayer funded car and an expense account to rival a Wall St. broker. Noble aspirations????

Absolutely!! I can think of dozens of these Labour chumps who took all they could get for themselves and gave nothing back to the people they were supposed to represent. They simply forgot about ordinary people once they had went to Westminster. It was just one big gravy train for them.... meanwhile the living standard of ordinary Glaswegians has went down generation after generation until we now have young people who have absolutely NO HOPE of getting a decent job and living a decent life.

Its a shameful day for Scotland - we have voted for a separatist party who would gladly cut the poor south of the border or anywhere else adrift. The same party who ushered in Margaret Thatcher has helped cement David Cameron into Downing Street. I had to laugh at the bluster of Salmond this morning, does he honestly believe 56 SNP Westminister MP's some of whom will still be able to get half fare on the train down to London will dictate to 325 Tories, get real !!! Unfortunately we now have 2 dictatorships in the UK, Sturgeons and Camerons and Socialism is dead

Can you explain how that worked?

So the SNP currently has 56 MPs in Westminster.

What exactly have they managed to do?

Anything other than claim expenses?
