SO, THEY BOOKED A SQUARE

INVITED A FEW CLOSE FRIENDS… AND HAD A GET-TOGETHER…

As I wasn’t able to be there myself… what with having a nasty virus and all, I would like to thank all the people you put up pics, which I then pinched.

Special thanks to my mate, Jonathon Poole-Smith, who actually gave me permission to use his stuff…

If anyone has pictures here that they want me to take down, just let me know.

OUR VISION FOR SCOTLAND

MAKE IT INTO WALES

!!!&

The hapless Richard Leonard has once again come up trumps (no pun intended) when it comes to the dafty stakes.

Making a video about the Scottish Labour ‘vision’ for Scotland (and the UK, although I find it hard to imagine why SCOTTISH Labour would have a vision for the UK), Mr Leonard talks over a picture of… Snowdonia.¬†

Well, a mountain is a mountain is a mountain, I guess.

Maybe we should be grateful that they managed to avoid this:

Dundee and the Law.

The video, a set of aspirations, some of which the Scottish government has already achieved (not giving Tory tax breaks to the richest, and equality in wages just achieved by Glasgow’s SNP Council after years of Labor denying them…see below).

Many of the other aspirations could have been met by a Scottish government that had the power to regulate employment. But then, who was it that voted against the devolution of so many powers, remind me…? Hmmm… Surely not Labour?

As far as I can make out all the other locations in the video are in Scotland, so the excuse they came up with that Scottish Labour (with virtually no money) is making a video about the whole of the UK, isn’t terribly convincing.

Would it not have been better to admit that they made a silly error by including the Welsh mountains in a Scottish video?

No. It seems they prefer to do a Donald Trump and come up with a not too plausible story as a cover-up.

I bet, it’s just a shame it took removing Scottish Labour from office to make it happen.

Now Nicola, time to get on with nationalising Scottish water

What?

THIS IS PART OF THE UK GOVERNMENT

AND YOU WONDER WHY I WANT INDEPENDENCE FOR SCOTLAND?

What is hilarious is that the Tories had the effrontery to warn about a coalition of chaos?

Labour, Plaid, the Greens, SNP…

But in this comic opera world with “leaders” like Trump and Mayhem, Erdogan and Netanyahu, I’ve given up being surprised at anything.

Thank heavens for Macron, Merkel, Sturgeon and the Nordic leaders.

HOW ABOUT THIS ONE, RUTH?

Ruth Davidson tweeted the other day about the education situation in Scotland. She wondered what the SNP would do to distract people’s attention from ¬†the subject.

Of course, as far as I can see, they have done no such thing, but I ventured to suggest a variety of  embarrassments for the English Tories, including Boris being hauled over the coals by Tessy; Tessy herself on bended knee to the Saudis; the strikes on Southern trains causing unrest among crowds of commuters in London, and a raft of statistics about the appalling health service run by the still unsacked heath minister Jeremy Hunt, who is just itching to get these foreign doctors sent home.

I’m sure Ruth is a regular reader of Munguin’s New Republic. So instead of tweeting her yet again about it, and because I’m sure she never reads the Guardian, I’ll just leave this here for her so she can ¬†contemplate ¬†how awful the Scottish government is, although we are happy to help her government out. Certainly¬†for the benefit of the poor kids who have been so badly let down by Hunt.

Not quite sure i like the tone of “exiles” though, Guardian. It’s hardly Siberia.
