Worm turns against labour in Scotland

The recently published report of the poor and rich in Scotland have made it clear that the poor are getting much poorer and perhaps should stop hoping against hope that London, Westminster or Blair have anything to offer except lies and more damned lies.

In fact many 'working class' Labour voters may now be ready to abandon London and Westminster forever.

SNP deputy leader John Swinney said: "This is the price that New Labour are paying for ditching the values of mainstream Scotland in favour of a right-wing Middle England agenda. New Labour are a London-based party and Mark-II Tory party. Both factors are causing their support to plummet among former core voters in Scotland."
