HomeBlogScottish Labour must get serious about battling the bedroom tax, its own MSP has warned as £4.5 billion in welfare cuts loom beyond the border

    But a large number of Labour elected members abstained on opposing this, some gave it qualified support and Gordon Brown said it should be “postponed”. Eh?
    Elaine Smith thinks we are all daft, saying one thing in England and something different quietly in Scotland
    Labour in Scotland is frightened to contradict anything the right wing English Labour Party suggests which is why Labour members in Scotland are walking away from Labour. Even allowing for trade union members Labour in Scotland has less than half the membership of the SNP (which has more members than Labour, Tory and LibDems put together)

    Absolutely right Dave! Even if Elaine Smith was sincere, the Labour party in Scotland would not go against their masters in England. So no chance of anything looking remotely like Labour taking a moral stance on the bedroom tax as they are morally bankrupt.
    Remember this is still the same Labour party that engages in illegal wars.
    If ever there was a reason needed to vote Yes for independence, the Labour party must be top of the list.

    Let the comming Peoples Assembly be the replacement for this deseased Labour Party,
    let it select candidates for local and national elections but most of all form ethical and
    moral policies that are people friendly.You can put my name on the list!
