Scottish Labour MAY split from London
Scotlands biggest Trade Union, UNISON, published a pamphlet today, titled
"Towards a devolved Scottish Labour Party". It is the first outward sign that
people have realised the spin-doctors in Labour down in London are losing their
grip to hamstring the Scottish parliament even before it is elected.
A Scottish Labour party would surely embody those traits the Scots hold
more dearly to their hearts than those people of Southern England that
Tony Blair fought to win over.
The SNP and a Scottish devolved - no party whip in London Labour could even govern Scotland together, its a possibility.
At least UNISON has had the courage to point out that Blair wants
to maintain Londons iron grip over Scotland and its wealth.
