Blair cuts benefits to English nationals
Blairs uncaring new Labour, cut benefits to many hundreds of thousands
living in Wales, England and N.Ireland yesterday, this despite a massive revolt
by his own party members.
The Scottish for now are unaffected by this, it falls under the jurisdiction
of the Scottish "parliament".
But as a sign of things to come and to prove Labour in Scotland is controlled by London, Donald Dewar, the First Minister of the Scottish parliament, and senior
executive members Henry McLeish and Sam Galbraith flew from Scotland to
vote with the Government.
