Very true, Niko, but the dark heart and cold clammy greedy hands of right-wing unionism still has the UK by the bollocks!
err you mean Scotland
No, I know what I mean. I think that post Scottish independence the English will realise that they only have a choice between two incompetent right-wing parties and do something about it and follow Scotland's example and look for alternatives to the hegemony. I don't believe for one minute that the average English voters are any more in favour of war-mongering and weapons of mass destruction than their Scottish counter-parts but at present they do not have any credible alternatives.Perhaps instead of all your negativity regarding the SNP you could do a blog explaining why you, as an old left-winger, should support a party or parties who are rivals for the right-wing vote and who retain very little of your values?
