    Tories are the only party “that will stand up for Scotland”, says Stirling Labour vice chair

    “As one of only two miners left on Stirling Constituency Labour Party who was on strike for 56 weeks at Polmaise Colliery it pains me to say, the actions by the members of the Labour Group prove beyond a doubt that the only party that will stand up for Scotland is Ruth Davidson’s Conservative Party.”

    Well, they showed some integrity and voted with the SNP and the Lib Dems against the consent motion. Big fuck you to Westminster :thumbs:

    Empty rhetoric on behalf of the SNP/Lab/Lib Dems. It won't stop or alter anything.

    Every time I come down the central dual carriageway in Livingston, I pass a sign saying 'Livingston, a Fairtrade Town'. We have ASDA, Morrisons and Sainsbury's. The sign has as much meaning and weight as the Scottish Parliament motion.

    I do wish that the motion could derail leaving the EU, because it is the daftest thing we've done as a nation for a while, but it won't.

    No, the juggernaut won't stop. Never has, never will, until one of the nations of the union breaks it, and saves thousands of lives as the British war machine is dented.

    On Scottish Labour's IndyRef Trauma

    e2a, this bit:
    "The reason Scottish Labour were destroyed after the referendum wasn't because they ‘sided with the Tories’ or because they failed to support independence: it was because they offered no serious alternative to the British state itself, no recognition that economic justice and democratic transformation must go hand in hand. They were forced instead into a desperate sales pitch for one of the most effective and durable criminal enterprises in the history of humankind, an evil wet lump of crumbling architecture, expensive weaponry and tenured racists, the only redeeming features of which were forged by a labour movement born in conflict against it, which will die in the same struggle if it doesn’t realise the conflict only ends when one side is destroyed. "


    Amen

    This. The complete lack of ambition of the new labour offering had me voting green down south and I'd have voted SNP and independence if I was up here.

    I moved back to Scotland a year ago and haven't bothered to go to a labour party meeting as I dread to see what the rump of the Scottish party is like. I was a union member and reactivated my membership with the rise of Corbyn . Down south I was heartened by the youngsters forging a new socialist road but all the youth I know up here naffed off to the SNP and rightly so given the poverty of ambition that is new labour.

    I want the ILP of my Grandfather back. Home rule and socialist.

    Mutterings about federalism from Leonard. More of the same. How daft does he think people are?

    Labour party chairman: "We need to kill off the nationalists in Scotland and regain that great country."

    The imperial mindset in full flow.

    And Sarwar and Baillie gone from the front bench. Branch office death spiral?

    Haha at young Sarwar. I always suspected he thought he deserved a political career by inheritance. I wonder if the warehouse workers get a living wage yet.

    Both Sarwar and Baillie were privately educated, I believe. Still, I expect the change is more about personal new brooms than looking for more ordinary people.
