Blairs attitude - Blairs downfall
After Blair promised Open Government in Labours manifesto hopes were high that the secrecy and unashamed bare faced
lies that were one of the hallmarks of Tory government were to be banished
from the political scene.
Now Blair has embarrassed Donald Dewar, in full public view by
dictating how many members of the Scottish parliament there will actually be.
This flys in the face of Blairs own promises to Scotland about London
adopting a laissez faire attitude towards Scotlands devolved parliament.
Westminster and Blair and the Labour party are set to keep their
dirty little claws around Scotlands neck for the longest time, unless
the Scottish Nationalists get the majority in the new parliament and
lay down the will of the Scottish people in Westminsters face and
make the European Parliament back Scotlands move towards full independence.
