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.
