Labour and Liberals carving up Scotland

The Labour party will do a deal with the Liberals to control the Scottish parliament if they can.

They will ensure that the Scots voice is muted and that any hint of independence and self determination is eradicated, whilst London pulls at the strings of its puppet parliament.

The devolved parliament has NO SUBSTANTIAL POWERS AT ALL... and Donald Dewar says we Scots will have full control, over NO SUBSTANTIAL POWERS.

Dewar said "Tony Blair is the man who has helped deliver this system, his support was very important for it. This is the biggest decentralisation of power this century and the answer is that we will have a writ for this parliament that runs in the devolved areas - full stop."
