Labour to divide and rule Scotland

There is an old saying and attitude peculiar to London, divide and rule.

Now John Reid, Blairs 'liaison' to the Scottish parliament and right wing Nu-Blairite is to set up official residence (like he is some kind of Royal...!) in Glasgow, Scotlands largest city of over 1million people.

There has always been a friendly rivalry between Glasgow and Edinburgh, between the East and West coasters, now Labour will use that to drive a further wedge between the Scots. Strange when so many Labour voters live IN Glasgow?

Reid said: "So we must not just think this is an Edinburgh parliament. It has to be a parliament for all Scotland. As far as the British government is concerned, we are well aware of the importance of all the areas of Scotland."
