Labour majority: 556
The Labour party ONLY just retained control of Hamilton in the election!
Their majority was cut from 16000 to just 556 as the SNP ground them into the
Blair must be VERY afraid. These people have always voted Labour and now they
are saying the Scottish parliament, devolution and its London masters are NO GOOD for
Hamilton and NO GOOD for Scotland. The SNP have reaffirmed independence from Westminster
as the way forward for the Scots.
The Liberals, the party with no morals who've sold their soul to Blair for power
in the rotten coalition did so badly the local football(soccer) team candidate
did better then they did - The Liberals have NO right to have any power
in the Scottish parliament
Annabelle Ewing, the SNP candidate said : “To take on this campaign in the face of adversity and to overcome a huge Westminster majority in Labour’s
fifth safest seat was indeed a major task, but one in which we picked up the gauntlet and gave as good as we got.
“George Robertson predicted that devolution would kill the SNP stone dead. This result proves that we’re not only alive but
preparing to move Scotland on to independence.”
The Labour "winner" said in the mode of his deluded party “The people of Hamilton have put their trust in
me and once again their trust in Labour and the Labour Government.”
