Celtic-End Singer Origin: Flower of Scotland (Roy Williamson) (104* d) RE: Flower of Scotland 06 Aug 99


Before you go Steve, I hate the Labour party more than I hate the Tories. The Tories are gits, but at least they're consistant, principled gits. The Labour party are just shameless power-hungry control freaks whose only philosophy is "Do whatever, as long as we stay in power". It's just as well Blair doesn't have a grandmother because he would have sold her already. He's sold out every old fashioned traditional socialist in the land. (University tuition fees, private finance initiative, lack of nuclear disarmament, senseless slaughter of innocent Serbians, cuts in social security for the disabled, pensioners and single mothers, abandonment of the nationalists in Northern Ireland.) For a guy who was once a member of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament he seems remarkably stalwart in his defence of the Trident killing machines. Your NATO point is very valid, he's just nominated Secretary of State for Defence George Robertson, probably the most right-wing sabre-rattler in the cabinet, as the new NATO president. Need we say more?

Incidently, Aberdeen may have done alright out of North Sea oil but London did better. (31 billion pounds better according to Tory ex-Cheif Secretary To The Treasurey William Waldegrave in The House Of Commons, 11.1.94) Besides I can't think of any other country in the world that has discovered oil in it's territory and has since got poorer.
