Labours Henry McLeish shows his anti-Scottish side again
After John Swinney, the new SNP leader , made it plain to his party and the
media that he was seeking firmer policy directions hardened by monetary figures
to persuade all Scots that the path to independence was the right one, McLeish
said "All we got were seven fudges on the key areas of
policy devolved to the Scottish Parliament, fudges
that would be deadly to the people of Scotland if the
SNP ever gained power."
This from the man who has time and again done Londons bidding, enforced
Westminsters wishes and ignored the fact his "Nation" is subjugated by the
archaic establishment he supports - named Westminster.
