Social chapter rhetoric from Blair but no results
The EU social chapter was designed to be a safety net through which the
poorest in European society would be protected.
Blair says he will end poverty and can be quoted as having stated "
"Our historic aim will be for ours to be the first generation to end child poverty. It will take a generation. It is a 20-year mission but I
believe it can be done if we reform the welfare state and build it around the needs of families and children."
Unfortunately, anyone who has driven round areas of Western Scotland
surrounding or in Glasgow and Western Edinburgh, through the once thriving
coal areas in Fife and the Central region will see WHAT LONDON
HAS DONE TO MOST SCOTS
It has abandoned them.
What is confusing is these same people still vote Labour as though by
doing so, by offering the one thing they own outright, their vote, that
London will be their saviour.
Well , it ISNT GOING TO HAPPEN.
They will stay poor until they realise that taking control of their
own countries affairs will set things right.
Blair wants to take a generation for this to happen.
We can't wait another month, London has had 300 years to ruin us, time
to get back on the right path and have some dignity.
