Labours Scottish membership dying on its feet
A former trades union activist and old-style Labour supporter Bob Thompson
has said to the press that the labour party in London is now paying the price
for its 'control freakery' over Scotland - its members are leaving the party.
Mr Thompson stated that Labours London headquarters had not published
membership statistics for North of the border for 2 years as it would reflect
how much like the Tories Nu-Labour had become.
The SNP can only benefit from this, and so will Scotland, if the same people
vote with the hearts and minds and not stay under Londons debilitating lie any
