Labour is trying to increase doubts over the SNp policy of independence saying

lack-lustre Souther English yards.
It also seems that Tommy Sheridan is staying true to his colours and reminding the

Britain earned £5bn ($8 billion) last year. We Scots still have 60,000
kids in poverty and their dum b parents keep voting for Labour, too cowardly to
vote for their freedom under the SNP.
