Tories like Labour struggling in Scotland
The Scottish Tories, annihilated at the last election, wiped from the
face of the Scottish political scene are trying a new game to try and
get support for their dying party.
They have backed calls for a referendum for full Scottish independence to be held in Scotland within the
first term of the Scottish parliament.
Of course "New Labour" i..e New Tory are spouting the same base lie
about terrible economic implications for Scotland....
Too true: London will have to pay for its oil and gas once Scotland
is independent and the Scottish exchequer will have lots of decisions
to make on how to spend that money to redress centuries of neglect
driven by London on the Scots.
