All you hoped for

Source:: Wee Ginger Dug All you hoped for A guest post by Samuel Miller Two referendums in two years, the backgrounds of which this site and many another have gone over pretty extensively. Two winning campaigns roundly criticized for their negativity, lack of clarity, lack of honesty and ultimately their ability to deliver on their pledges and assurances. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I’m sure there’s a pattern forming. Brexit is an unqualified and unquantifiable mess right now and that’s before the UK gets… Read the full article:: Wee Ginger Dug All you hoped […]

It Seems the SNP always has the Worst Luck

Source:: Random Public Journal It Seems the SNP always has the Worst Luck Tweet Follow @RPJblog By Jason Michael As we are all consumers of the media in Scotland we are all aware of the incessant hostility in the British media to the SNP and the independence movement. What we are perhaps not fully aware of is how this is affecting us subconsciously. Have you ever wondered why the SNP, Scotland’s party in government, always seems to have such rotten luck? Recently I was out to coffee with a friend, a committed Yesser… Read the full article:: Random […]

Scottish Labour after Dugdale and what comes next?

Source:: Gerry Hassan Scottish Labour after Dugdale and what comes next? Scottish Labour after Dugdale and what comes next? Gerry Hassan Scottish Review, August 30th 2017 Scottish Labour used to offer certainty. It had its differences and divisions, but it was in the business of running Scotland, dominating local government and town halls, and was concerned with administration, holding office and doing practical things. That seems a long time ago. Where did it all go wrong for Scottish Labour? The resignation of Kezia Dugdale means the party has gone through a… Read the full article:: Gerry Hassan Scottish […]

The footnote

Source:: Wee Ginger Dug The footnote A guest post by Samuel Miller This will be short. You know, it would be easy and very tempting to list the record of exiting leader Kezia Dugdale’s gaffs and errors over the past three years. Just as it’s tempting to give in to jibes and jokes at her departure. So I’m going to stun readers by NOT doing any of the above. Those gaffs have been more than well covered by public record as and when they occurred. Plenty… Read the full article:: Wee Ginger Dug The footnote

The Course of Scottish Politics

Source:: Craig Murray The Course of Scottish Politics The SNP triumphed in 2015 by outflanking Labour to the left. The Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn is now coming back by outflanking the SNP to the left. This was not hard as the SNP tends to talk left but not act it. Kezia Dugdale has resigned because she is unhappy with tacking to the left; indeed as a third rate machine politician she has never given any indication of philosophical conviction at all. A large number of those voters… Read the full article:: Craig Murray The Course of Scottish […]
