Alex Salmond talks to Unions

Even union leaders realise that Nu_Labour is just the old Tories in new clothes.

Alex Salmond appealed directly to members at the Trades Union Congress by highlighting his view that only the SNP was now moderate-left of centre, and that Blair and London had moved everything to far to the right in an attempt to keep Southern English voters happy.

Alex said "It is an alignment that requires a choice by every individual: whether to be for the essential public provision of the basics of a modern society good schools, efficient hospitals and secure housing or to be frankly against the public good and only interested in endless tax-cutting, and endless bribery of the voters."
