The conservatives have won a majority in the house of commons, maths cannot be some peoples strong point if they think that 56 SNP's made any difference to that result.
What difference it does make is that for the first time in a long time we will have a party that will stand up for US. They will have to work twice as hard to get half the praise from the Scottish media so it will be an uphill struggle.
Labour have not only failed Glasgow it failed Scotland and it's people when instead of fighting for the people and tell us what it meant to vote for them they continued their negativity and attacks on SNP policies, policies that at one time they would have championed.

The voting system cannot cope with 'The 45', and I refused to join in the masses, but waking up to this new Scotland I am nevertheless proud of the gumption displayed by my fellow countryfolk who have bucked the Tory trend and backed the Trendy Team.

Go on SNP, show us what you've got! biggrin.gif

To be honest, Labour were asking for it. Now, if we can get rid of them from the City Council, that would be great.


Oh YES! Cleaning up Glasgow City Council would be a difficult job, but a very worthwhile one. biggrin.gif

I'd take those grapes back to the shop Liam, they taste really sour. yes.gif

JAGZ, I could not agree with you more re. the sour grapes, but also when I hear some one spouting about socialism being a more noble cause than nationalism I have to laugh .... New-Labour .... socialism, you don't really see those two word in the same sentence often.
Anyway, up the Jags!!!

Your right ARu, the real socialists deserted New Labour a long time ago when they tried to appeal to middle England in an effort to woo disenchanted Tory voters.

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

Well, that's the countdown to the Scottish self destruct started, I can't believe so many of my fellow Scots were as Gullible as the Germans in the 1930's. Oh well you get the Government you deserve and Karma is swift, enjoy it while it lasts, Karma is on it's way.

Scotland did not leave Labour. Labour left Scotland . Scotland NEVER puts the Tories in power this is England's doing . Tories do not have a mandate in Scotland.

Dear oh dear, inaccurate statements mixed in with some maudling sentiment when things don't go your way.

Jim Boy Murphy still hanging on in there to his job as branch manager.... he will go soon though and just as well he has got all those degrees from uni because he will need them for his next job. laugh.gif

Was an amazing night and its been a long time coming as we really need something to happen in this city to get us back on track. The young people I see everyday have been let down by Labour who had nothing to give them but rubbish education and a zero hours job.

Interesting times for Glasgow and Scotland.
