These dafties in the media still don't get it. Scroll down to see how the English-based media is still intent on focusing on meaningless trivialities while the world moves on passed their nasty wee racist agendas.

Funny how 4 protesters somehow multiplies to 30 when the DM reports it.

The Labour Party still don't get it. Not once during the campaign did I hear the word socialism in anything they said. For some reason, the media described Ed Milliband as leading a left wing campaign. Can't think why. A promise of a minimum wage of 8 an hour by 2020? A promise to clampdown on immigration, producing mugs for sale mirroring UKIP? Promoting austerity to the country but in some kind of slowed down way? Doing away with zero hours contracts that some of their MP'S already use for their staff? Now the leadership hopefuls, following Mr. Millibands fall from grace are all with one voice saying the party needs to become a more revisionist one, of going back to Blairism. Jesus wept. he very man who helped rip the soul out of the Party is seen to be a more important totem to these misguided careerists than socialism. It looks like they are also trying to cut any ties they had with the trades union movement who helped build them, but that comes as no great surprise. They want to be just like the Tories, caring nothing for anything other than the pursuit of power, money, influence and a seat in the Lords. I feel desperately sorry for all of the good people within the Labour Party who are being treated with contempt by these poisonous snakes within, and wish it could be otherwise, a redistributive party, against austerity, Trident, workers rights to the fore etc, but it is not. People didn't leave Labour, Labour left the people. They are diminished hugely if they fail to see the needs of those same people and decide their careers are more important. If they truly intend to go down this path, then the Conservatives will win again in 2020. Why? Because in the absence of an alternative, people will vote as they already did, but maybe in bigger numbers. I truly hope we're well out of it by then and leave them to squabble over their expenses.

Looks like the Unions MSPs are ganging up to get rid of Jim Murphy but I hope he manages to hang on because he has done a brilliant job as tea boy of the branch office.... just not for Labour that is!!

Good luck to Jim Boy!! smile.gif

Indeed, thinking back when we some of us were slamming Murphy the labour supporters thought it was because we were scared of him, not so it was simply because he was an imbecile and as we can see the best thing for the SNP. The longer he stays on (and Holyrood labour voted to support him just on Monday) then the more the public will turn away from labour. Its a non paying job while he isn't an elected politician but he's entitled to that 30 odd grand pay off to cushion the blow into 'normality'

The response of a prominent Labour activist:
QUOTE
Scotland's new SNP MPs are a mixture of “some good people, some numpties, some trots, some fascist scum”, according to prominent Labour activist Ian Smart.

Tweeting on Monday night, the lawyer and blogger said that the “SNP never changes”.

And seemingly neither does Smart. This isn't the first time the Labour Twitter favourite has compared the SNP to fascists and the Nazis.

The former president of the Law Society in Scotland, who has tried repeatedly to become an MSP for the Labour Party, called Paisley MP Mhairi Black a “Nazi”.

Last June, Smart tweeted: “Are we really going to go through the entire D-day weekend without anybody pointing out the SNP were on the Nazi side?”

In a heated exchange in the Scottish Parliament over party political Twitter trolling, Scottish Labour’s Deputy Leader Kezia Dugdale promised to look into Smart’s offensive tweeting.

During the election campaign, Jim Murphy, the Scottish Labour leader, said Smart had been given a talking to.

Last night, after Smart’s latest tweet, SNP MSP Humza Yousaf asked Dugdale for an update. However, Dugdale did not reply.

So, you wouldn't recognise a lying politician if you saw one?

I assume they're all lying until they prove me wrong Alex.

Anyway Herr (not so) Smart isn't a politician.
