Liddells rant shows Labours lies are transparent
We Scots Do remember that the Tories under Thatcher almost shut our country down.
We remember the depression, the suicides, the hungry children, the lies over the coal
strike, the PROMISES (now broken) over a SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT in Edinburgh, rather than
this hog-tied, jumped up parish council that gets vetoed from London every five minutes.
We remember all right.
And NOTHING has changed. We still have almost 70,000 kids on the breadline,
and anyone driving through much of central Scotland can see the unemployed and
beggars all around.
Liddell said this :"The new Scotland is an anathema to the SNP and the Tories. Our every success is to be cynically mocked. Once before they set out to destroy a Labour government and together they ushered in 18 years of Tory rule - years when the Scottish economy was all but destroyed by the Tories, years when Scotland became the test tube for Tory policies like the poll tax. How can we forget or forgive the slaughter of Scottish jobs the successive governments wrote off?
Let me see: NEW LABOUR TAXES on travel, tolls, city-eco taxes, 73% fuel tax, a continuation of the poll tax under the guise of the council tax.
JOBS The uniroyal fiasco, the electronics shutdowns, the closure of US airfreight in
Glasgow to protect Heathrow, the effective closure of all Scotlands ship yards.
WESTMINSTER (LABOUR and TORY ALIKE) HAS FAILED THE SCOTS FOR ONE HUNDRED YEARS.
Time for the SNP and Scottish independence.
And remember it was LIDDELL who helped mess up Scotlands education system before Blair
dragged her back to London.
